Child of Light Review (PS4)

Softpedia
25 June 2014
  • Conclusion: Child of Light is a hugely fun and memorable experience. The combat is intense, the visuals are unique, and the soundtrack elevates the whole game to a new level. While it might get a bit ambiguous about your goals at some points in the story, it's still really good and well worth the investment.
  • Pros: +Good coming-of-age story, +Intense battles, +Gorgeous visuals, +Amazing soundtrack
  • Cons: -Objectives aren't clear sometimes, -Playing cooperatively via Igniculus doesn't work that well

  • Excerpt: Playing through Child of Light feels an awful lot like talking to a drunken former beauty queen. Sure, there's a lot of beauty there (and it's intent on making sure you know that), but once you really spend some time with it; you'll see there's not much past that.

  • Summary: If you miss a good Final Fantasy, then to satisfy your craving of reliving the good old days playing FFVII look no further. Child of Light soothes a void that you won’t even know you had, and with its fairy tale story and hand drawn art it’ll bring a smile to your inner child.

  • Conclusion: There are perhaps 2 which could be missed but if you spend time digging around the game and keeping an eye open these won't be a problem. Overall The game is great, stunning artwork and a timeless story. I can't say I feel in love but the story is strong and worth it's time to play.

  • Excerpt: On normal difficulty, Child of Light probably won’t put up much of a challenge for anyone capable of playing without a second player’s aid, but plays out so quickly that it won’t have time to wear out its welcome.

  • Conclusion: Child of Light brings to life a gorgeous watercolor painting And the entire script of the game is comprised of awkward half-rhyming Prose cannot express this So I’ve decided that my review Will also be written in awkward rhymes And changing meter too!

Child of Light Review: A mesmerizing fairytale

GameZone

GameTrailers

  • Excerpt: Role-playing games are rife with clichés. Giant spiders, griffons, dwarves, and other similar ilk appear almost by default in any game that calls itself fantasy. The result is a genre that’s often more iterative than innovative; a series of small steps in an overly familiar mold.
