Premature Evaluation is the (usually) weekly column in which we explore the wilds of early access. This week, Fraser’s shooting acrobatic cowboys in Sky Noon, an unconventional FPS full of grappling hooks and aerial antics.
My stetson and I have spent a great deal of time soaring through big, open skies recently. It’s been lovely, though there’s always a tinge of frustration and just a bit of disappointment breaking the serenity of my trip through the clouds. That’s because I’m usually hurtling to my death. Sky Noon can be a tricky FPS to wrap one’s head around, and I’m not sure I’m there yet, judging by my many fatalities. Because I’m a glutton for punishment, and because it’s shaping up to be a uniquely brilliant cowboy shootout, I’ve persisted.
