The Weapon is a nicely done one-room sf game, with clever but generally not too difficult puzzles, and a story that starts with the feelies and unfolds to a satisfying-if-not-shocking twist at the end (but maybe only not shocking since I'm playing this so long after it was released and may have been spoiled; still, it seems at least somewhat telegraphed if you're familiar with the genre).
There are a few places where the player is likely to be left wondering what to do next, but luckily there are hints to help you past these patches.
The only other minor rough spot is the ending; there could have been a little more backstory explanation given to clear up the reasoning for what happens.
But overall, The Weapon is pretty slick and definitely worth playing.
