A shining example of the powers of adventure, and what a well-realised fairy-tale world can do for a gaming experience. Child of Light is magnificent journey that deserves both your attention and your time.
So this is where ubisoft has invested all her soul, and now she can’t return it in any way! This game is a masterpiece!
I will definitely return to this world again! Thank you Yubiki, no matter how much I love you!
Child of Light stands as a wonderfully realised venture into unfamiliar territory for Ubisoft - and a welcome reminder that the industry's major players still have the creative flair to push beyond the lucrative safe ground that they so often favour to create well-crafted, highly-polished gems such as this.
Having died following a mysterious illness Aurora awakens in the land of Lemuria and must defeat the Queen of the Night if she is to return home and save her kingdom.
Child of Light is a stunning looking mix of RPG and side scrolling platformer with an execellent musical score. The turn based combat system at the centre of the game is very clever but, even with the simple platforming and puzzles to mix things up, it did become a little repetitive towards the end of the 10-12 hour playing time.
I didn't like it and it's not because i only like one type of game, i like many types of games. I just found this games repetitive and overall boring. The turn based combat was fun the first 30 times but then after it just felt like a chore and i tried to avoid it. The story was a bit mixed i didn't understand a lot, no fun for me but you might enjoy it. Give it a go anyway.
Games are about gameplay.
They are not about charming visuals. They are not about characters. They are not about the story.
Gameplay in Child of Light is f* boring. I had played for about 2 hours before I abandoned it. Combat mechanic seems interesting for a second, then you just started to use the simplest strategy. Combats are repetitive and after twenty, you simply don't want to do it anymore. Sadly, that's the only thing you can do, apart from flying, which is even more boring than fighting.
Glad I got it with PS Plus, and not bought it.
