    I bought this game on sale, so for the price I give it a high review. Im not sure if its worth full price though.

    That said, the local multiplayer is the real fun here. Dont buy this if you dont plan on playing with friends. The single player is bland and forgettable, even boring. There really is nothing new to offer after about 30-60 minutes of play.

    The multiplayer makes this game
    wonderful. Its very hectic and fun. the other reviewer named frz did a good job of describing it.

    I would also add that I love the art direction and soundtrack. Its certainly a well crafter and beautiful game if nothing else!

    what most reviewer don't tell is that chasing aurora is a really really fun local multiplayer game. it's hard to describe the kind of fun situations that emerge. basically you pass around the gamepad, so that everybody in the round gets to be the priviledged bird. there are multiple games where the gamepad bird chases the others or is chased. this leads to a lot of shouting and pointing, as the non-gamepad players try to coordinate their efforts. in the end, it's hillarious and exhausting, a rare type of game that engages the players in much more communication than usual. i refuse to give it 10 points as i would expect a little bit more single player content for that price; then again, i rarely ever give 10/10 points for anything :) Collapse

    Chasing Aurora should be played by you and your friends, then and only then it can deliver any amount of fun.

    Chasing Aurora is a beautiful game that can be fun to play together with four friends in short sessions. The price is a bit steep though, and the game gets repetitive fast and it doesn't offer much for the lone player.

    Get five people in the mix and you've a riot of brek-into-cliff chaos. [Feb 2013, p.89]
