Child of Light

DarkStation

  • Conclusion: Child of Light is one of the most enjoyable and beautiful games I’ve played so far in 2014. It’s bursting with charm and had me grinning from ear to ear for its ten hour story. My only hope is this isn’t the last we see of Aurora and this beautiful world. If you haven’t yet gone on the Child of Light journey I implore you to stop reading now and go play this game. For $15 your not going to find a better value all year.

  • Excerpt: As visually resplendent and periodically fun as Child of Light can be, it too often buckles under the weight of its own aspirations.

High-Def Digest

  • Summary: Ubisoft, coming off the critical success of 'Rayman Origins' and ' Rayman Legends ,' seeks to kick the can down in the road of beautifully hand-drawn animation and quirky gameplay. Under the newly dubbed UbiArt Framework engine, 'Child of Light' is born. A tactical, turn-based RPG with 2D exploration, 'Child of Light' will wow anyone at first glance, and might just be the beginning of Ubisoft's devotion to smaller, more innovative titles.

  • Conclusion: Child of Light does exactly what it wants to do: tell a beautiful story in the shell of a JRPG.
  • Pros: Gorgeous visuals, haunting music, whimsical story.
  • Cons: The whimsy comes at the cost of character development, platforming elements seem out-of-place.

  • Conclusion: Every aspect of Child of Light has an unmistakably artisinal, organic feel to it. None of it feels focus-tested, or designed to appeal to the broadest possible audience; rather, it always comes off as exactly the expression its creators intended. The artwork on display is stunning, and the combat is constantly engaging, and the characters openly defy genre convention.
  • Pros: Beautiful art, Excellent combat, Hand crafted feel, Well balanced
  • Cons: Forced rhyming

Child of Light (PS4) - Review

VGChartz
22 January 2014
  • Excerpt: There are a growing number of indie games that will grant players wondrous, creative experiences that a big publisher too focused on the bottom line wouldn’t dare try. But what happens when one of those big publishers allows its creative minds to work on a completely different type of game, atypical from that publisher’s popular fare?

GAME Group plc
10 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Over the past few years, Ubisoft's Ubi Art studio produced gorgeous 2-D games, namely 2011's Rayman Origins and its grand 2013 follow-up, Rayman Legends . For its latest project, Child of Light , the developers took an entirely new direction, creating a fantasy world and surrounding it with role-playing elements that work better than most games in the genre. The story revolves around Aurora, a young girl thrust from her world into the dark land of Lemuria.
  • Pros: Tremendous presentation, with hand-drawn visuals and a worthwhile soundtrack, Gameplay doesn't follow the role-playing norm, The multiplayer isn't as strong as other games, but works well enough
  • Cons: Rhyming dialogue can be its own worst enemy, May take a while to get into the battle system, Can be too easy unless you crank up the difficulty

Child of Light Review

  • Conclusion: It’s difficult to read because the sense of rhythm is completely off, which may have become clear if they’d had someone read it aloud. This is a mild source of irritation through the whole game that eventually led to me becoming less invested in the characters and their plights. Like the combat, the game’s story picks up towards the end, playing with some interesting themes and going for the heart with moderate effectiveness.
