    I found The Girl Of Glass: A Summer Bird’s Tale’s to be a rare, honest look at how complex people can be inside while appearing to be less than that on the surface, one that doesn’t shy from reminding the player that being a presumptuous person with a loud mouth might make for an amusing exchange in a game, but in reality, it will cause pointless hurt and tends to betray a lack of understanding from the joker. It touches upon societal issues like submission to authority and the place of business in the lives of common people in a way that’s absolutely not being discussed honestly in the predominantly American influenced video game scene and for that alone, if you are drawn to the power of interactive narrative, this game is worth your time and money.

    The Girl of Glass: A Summer Bird’s Tale is a difficult game to sum up. The setting, graphics, and fairy tale narrative all point to a great, family-friendly game that would make for a great introduction to the point and click genre, but the tonal inconsistencies and overly difficult battles seem to be aimed at an entirely different audience. I appreciate the narrative reasons for this disparity, but feel that many will be put off by the latter aspect. If you are willing to embrace the battle system then there is much to be enjoyed in this coming of age fairy tale.
