    For those who prioritize combat, you may be left frustrated. But I prioritize a beautiful world, wonderful music, magnificent platforming, and phenomenal tech. And on those grounds alone, Kena: Bridge of Spirits is a triumph, an utterly brilliant experience. And when each of those parts are this good, this lovingly crafted, this polished, it’s incredibly difficult to ignore. Ember Lab have created something truly special. This is a gem. Kena: Bridge of Spirits is the best game I’ve played all year. And you should play it.

    Kena: Bridge of Spirits is a strong game, it’s a contender for game of the year and it’s ultimately one well worth playing. It’s a stunningly astute and whimsical take on death, life, and where we fit in all of it. The game is about Kena finding her place and helping others find there’s too. Beautiful, immersive, and dynamic, I can’t recommend this game enough.

    From the very first moment till the very end of your journey, Kena: Bridge of Spirits is a heart-warming experience and a real pleasure between the visuals, puzzles and combat. Atmospheric music, beautiful lively graphics, believable heroes and cute little Rots - each little element is woven into the amazing whole that is the gaming experience provided by Kena.

    Kena: Bridge of Spirits is "to the point": visually it's a feast for the eyes and with an interesting percussion-based musical score. It's fun, thoughtful, made with care and inspiration, even if it doesn't offer anything original in its individual areas. Especially considering that this is Ember Lab's first effort, the future is bright, and we can already imagine an even better sequel.

    With a charming and nice adventure, Kena Bridge of Spirits invites us in a cute and dark world. The gameplay is rather simple but offers interesting mechanics that allow you to have a good time no matter what happens. With tons of resources to collect and an original scenario, Kena is clearly the kind of independent title that you want to finish. And this is perhaps its biggest strength: a relaxing game, with a challenge, that you want to finish at 100%. In the end, Kena doesn't invent much but offers a beautiful and memorable journey.

    While we might have to arguably wait for future games to unlock the series’ true potential, Kena: Bridge of Spirits is still a great first outing for Ember Lab. If the breathtaking visuals don’t suck you in, then there’s the satisfying and challenging combat as well, or the wide world to explore. Or maybe you just want to find all the teeny hats for the Rot in order to make them as ridiculously adorable as possible. Whatever the case, there’s going to be something satisfying for everyone here in Kena’s debut.

    Looks better than it plays, but it's got a good heart.

Amazing animation, audio and composition, veryMade a Metacritic Account just to review this game and give it the props it deserves. Amazing animation, audio and composition, very interesting story, combat is satisfying and the gameplay mechanics are always throwing in some neat things to do or puzzles to solve. Emberlab didn't focus on marketing false features and really put their heart and soul into their first game and it really shows. I hope to see a sequel and any new IPs that come from this dedicated and very talented studio. Keep up the great work Emberlab and enjoy the game everyone. Expand

    The game in my opinion is beautiful, is a work of love and art,it is almost exceptional, but it has some solid flaws that I will talk aboutThe game in my opinion is beautiful, is a work of love and art,it is almost exceptional, but it has some solid flaws that I will talk about after mentioning the positives of it.
    The animation(graphics) along the music, with the thematic, plus the story, resembles an animation movie of the best quality that you are immersed in, controling the events.
    For my the fighting is great, very fast paced, but also very thoughtful. The best part of all the gameplay are the bosses.You gotta learn every button, with every combination to make precise and effective moves. The coolest is the parrying of course. Even though the scenery is nice it is also repetitive. The same happens with some aspects of the puzzles. The major flaw of the game are the bugs, that should be fixed in the near future I hope. But in general for me can be considered as one of the best games of the year.

    I will start with the good stuff first the game graphics are amazing the art style is good the world is fantastic to look at so when it comesI will start with the good stuff first the game graphics are amazing the art style is good the world is fantastic to look at so when it comes to visual i will give it and 8.
    Now i gave the game a 7 for a couple of reasons first of all don't expect a fascinating story i don't know if the dev's Were aiming for younger generation or what but its kinda childish game from every aspect for the game play it self the combat is basic and get boring so fast which lead me to the next thing the game is $40 and you can finish it in 10 to 15 hours max so when you compare what you pay to what you get it's not worth this price because you do everything over and over again without feeling that there's any new things so if you want my advice wait for sale then buy it for half the price that way it would be kinda worth i

    You can't change the movement keys. Are you kidding me? This is unacceptable.
