    Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan is a rough-gem: although a little unpolished, it leaves a rare sense of a unique game, while it reflects to the player all the passion of its creators for it.

    Nimble gameplay, luscious aesthetic values, wise storytelling and truly understanding the principles of its genre make Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan a breath of fresh air amidst Western games with often are marred by needless drudgery. Quite an achievement for a 2D side-scrolling action-RPG with a very modest price tag coming from an untapped territory in the world of gaming.

    Bugs and hiccups aside, Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan is staggering for an inaugural effort, especially when you consider that it's the first ever game from Central Africa. It needs some polish, but the core base is there, and the team really knows how to tell a story.

    The First Cameroonian game is a Japanese-style action RPG and reveals the exotic culture.

    KIRO'O Games has made a truly convincing first game. Not a perfect one, as fights can quickly become a little too repetitive. But a truly charming one, with some efficient writing, lovely characters and magnificent art style.

    So while I look forward to other world cultures using games as a means of passing down legacies and stories, let Aurion double as a cautionary tale in addition to a decent action RPG.

    Filled with ambition and a unique perspective, Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan could have been an excellent game, telling uniquely African stories. It is brought down by poor pacing, repetitive and tedious battles and an unfortunate lack of polish.

    A little too ambitious for its own good, Aurio still shows serious promise for Cameroonian game development. [Issue#251, p.62]

  1. Even without acknowledging the unusually huge difficulties Kiro’o faced in getting it released at all, Aurion suffers a major blow but stands up as an original, memorable, and rewarding game that deserves every success.

    Que dire de Aurion, si ce n'est que ce jeu est grand, maturé et imaginé pendant plus de dix ans, il deborde de bonnes idées, nous plonge dansQue dire de Aurion, si ce n'est que ce jeu est grand, maturé et imaginé pendant plus de dix ans, il deborde de bonnes idées, nous plonge dans une ambiance Africa Fantasy envoûtante. L'histoire du jeune couple royal de Zama exilé de leur terre natale est poignante, drôle, touchante et aborde des sujets très délicats mais sans jamais tomber dans la mièvrerie. Un véritable vent de fraîcheur culturelle et graphique avec sa touche colorée, et un chara-design exceptionnel.
    Pour ce qui est de l'ambiance sonore et de la bande son rien à redire, les Musiques qui accompagnent votre périple ont un caractère très africains avec une touche de moderne ce qui rend la chose homogène et agréable.
    Je passe rapidement sur le système de combat qui est très bon avec son système proche d'un Tales Of, il procure beaucoup de fun, le système de fusion d'aurion rend les combats encore plus jouissifs.
    Rajoutez à ça le staff de Kiro'o Games qui fait un travail remarquable, qui sont d'une rare écoute en plus ils se payent le lux d'être adorable !
    Ce jeu est un très bon jeu quelques imperfections mais merde on s'en fout c'est un petit studio Camerounais qui nous pond une perle à ne rater sous aucun prétexte.

    Sur ce je retourne à Isao boire un verre de Matango !
    Aurionique le destin de Zama est entré vos mains !

    "Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan is a game that should be played because it extends itself into an epistemological paradigm that no other game"Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan is a game that should be played because it extends itself into an epistemological paradigm that no other game has dared to venture: African Fantasy. Its other commendable merits of resplendent environments, captivating story, and adept gameplay are complimentary, but secondary to the fact that this game's very existence is (gaming) history."

However within an hour I found the combat scenes repetitive + load times for each battle excessively long so abandoned the game. Shame - had a lot of promise. Full Review »
