    You can even play it with a friend. Just be aware that your game may lock up time to time; my PS3 froze twice while playing...For a downloadable game, Pid provides a lot of bang for your buck.

    A unique style, challenging puzzles, a fun story and strong level-design make PiD a well-made platform game. Long loading times, an often frustrating difficulty curve and disappointing audio keep it from being a truly great one.

    Pid takes the cinematic 2D platforming genre to the next level with incredible graphics, a great soundtrack, and good level design. The fact that they didn't at least add a friendlier difficulty level does take away from the overall experience though.

    While the art style is a visual treat and Kurt's powers beautifully unique, the difficulty curve is brutally unforgiving. [Jan 2013, p.81]
  5. In this puzzle/platformer you step into the shoes of Kurt, a small boy stranded on an alien planet with just one desire: getting home. Easier said than done, because Pid can be a very tough nut to crack at times. [December 2012, p.93]

    Pid has some truly amazing moments, but they are let down by difficulty spikes and lacklustre controls. The sections where the art style, level design, music, and gameplay slot together are fabulous, and it's worth playing the adventure to experience them for yourself – but don't expect the title to hold your attention like a burst of anti-gravitational light.

    What could have been a unique, quirky platformer with a distinct visual style is unfortunately dragged down by its core mechanics and some poor design decisions. With Pid, Might and Delight, instead delivers a frustrating, trial-and-error-based platformer where death and frustration are equally certain.

    This PS3 port is every bit as good as it's Xbox and PC counterparts though it's the exact same game so if you have played it already there's no new content worth a second purchase. Expand
