Child of Light

Destructoid
2 May 2014
  • Summary: When Ubisoft revealed that it was working on an old-school JRPG with modern visuals, I was utterly surprised. It's not really in its wheelhouse, and the striking visuals of Child of Light were immediately apparent -- even more striking than either of the recent Rayman games, which utilized the same UbiArt engine. Now that it's finally here, I'm pleased to say it looks even better in action, and I'm eager to see what the team can do with this formula in the future.

  • 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. Child of Light also fills its bestiary with these same sort of critters, carrying all of the hallmarks of a tale too often told.

  • Conclusion: A beautiful game to look at, and wonderfully polished, but a thimble-deep RPG.

  • Conclusion: Child of Light is like a blast from the past, capturing the essence of a classic JRPG from the genre's heyday and refining it with a fresh coat of modern polish. The art design and audio is gorgeous, the combat is simple and fun, with no ultra-complicated busywork to get in the way, and the characters are charming.

  • Summary: The land of Lemuria has fallen into darkness, and only the lost child Aurora can restore the light. Charged with recovering the sun, the moon, and the stars, and gifted with the ability of flight, this reluctant princess must defeat the Queen of Night. But is Aurora really in Lemuria, or is she a sick child in the real world, hallucinating on her death bed as she longs to see her doting father one more time?

Child of Light review

  • Summary: Finally, a sidescrolling platformer for people who don’t like sidescrolling platformers.
  • Pros: Pretty artwork inspired by Studio Ghibli. Nice integration of JRPG elements. Interesting combat, especially when you have to make hard decisions.
  • Cons: Fight one boss and you’ve fought 'em all. The shift into combat can be jarring considering the fluidity of movement when out of battle.

Review: Child of Light puts the 'Art' in 'Heart'

CVG
28 April 2014
  • Summary: The films of Studio Ghibli are punctuated with some of the strongest young women in world cinema. Nausicaä, San, Chihiro, Sophie and the diminutive Arietty all capture hearts without resorting to Hollywood stereotyping or crass sexualisation.
  • Pros: Lemuria looks beautiful. You'll happily get lost in its dungeons., The cast is full of loveable characters, each fleshed out with care.
  • Cons: The moment-to-moment story is great, but the grand narrative falls flat., Few games have the temerity to end as abruptly as this.

  • Summary: Нельзя сказать, что игра прямо уж совсем лишена сложности. Иногда мне все-таки попадались серьезные испытания — в дополнительных квестах, когда я сворачивал с сюжетной тропы и сталкивался с действительно сильными монстрами. Но все остальное время мне казалось, что Child  of  Light играет со мной в поддавки. В главном эксперимент Ubisoft удался — студия сделала настоящее семейное развлечение, сближающее детей и родителей.

Child Of Light

11 May 2014
  • Summary: Op het moment lijkt geen engine beter geschikt om prentenboeken tot leven te wekken dan Ubisofts UbiArt Framework. Ubisoft Montpellier gebruikte UbiArt om Raymans legendarische en hysterische wereld op uitbundige wijze tot leven te wekken en Ubisoft Montreal doet daar nog een schepje bovenop. Child of Light is een meesterwerk in penseelstreken, krijt en waterverf en elk screenshot zou je zo ingelijst aan de muur kunnen hangen.
  • Pros: Ongekend mooie graphics, Frisse en verslavende vechtmechaniek, Fantastische soundtrack, Een puike heldin in Aurora, Asymmetrische besturing is leuk
  • Cons: Nooit echt origineel, Multiplayer valt tegen, Moeilijkheidsgraad had hoger gemogen
