    Cornerstone does have its fair share of problems, from camera to control scheme, but it is a lighthearted and whimsical adventure that doesn't overstay its welcome and even provides a laugh or two.

    The game still manages to have its own unique aspects and it feels well designed. I loved the freedom to explore, uncover and collect items throughout the various environments. The combat feels a little clumsy but I enjoyed the platforming and crafting mechanics.

    Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim is very fresh and has the nostalgic essence of some of the best platformers from the 90’s. This game is a great way to introduce a new generation of gamer to the classic platformer style, but the lack of voice acting and frequent bugs make this a game better suited for the casual gamer.

    Some deeper combat, a more engaging story or characters, RPG elements like some skill customization, or deeper puzzles may have made things more memorable, but as is the entire experience just kind of is, like a cool, windless 40 degree day.

    An artdesign reminiscent of The Wind Waker is not enough to make a mediocre action-adventure interesting. Cornerstone shows a lot of potential as well as ambition, but in the end that is not enough.

    Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim has action, puzzles, rpg elements... but all is too simple.

    There’s a reason scope management is taught in game design schools. Overflow Games’ underestimation of its own limitations is the source of almost all of the faults in Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim.

L'avventura del nostro Tyrim scorre senza intoppi, ma anche senza una vera e propria narrazione che la renda perfettamente coerente. Aver aggiunto il crafting, che tanto va di moda, non rappresenta tanto un vezzo, ma una ottima implementazione del gameplay. Purtroppo i combattimenti risultano invece un po' scoordinati, ma nel complesso Cornerstone è un buon gioco, consigliato a tutti coloro che amano i giochi di esplorazione in terza persona e soprattutto che amano scoprire ogni minimo segreto che si cela in essi.

From what I remember the game set out to be Dark Souls meets Windwaker but fails to capture the spirit and feel of either of them. The endearing story, likeable characters and visual feel are its strong points. Janky movement and weak physics are its low points. Combat ends up at a middling average.

    This game could easily be a 7-8 or a harsh 3-4 depending on who's doing the reviewing and how willing one is to forgive these fresh developers' mistakes. At any rate I found the game enjoyable but with a few faults that held it back.
