    Concrete Genie is one of the best games of this generation—an experience that expands the parameters of what video games can be. By embracing values like artistry, empathy, and beauty, this is a title that will appeal to gamers that might be feeling a bit world-weary, bringing color to a world that has been feeling a bit gray lately. If you have ever wondered why video games have to be so violent and dehumanizing, then do the industry a favor and support this game. And lest I forget to mention: Concrete Genie is a lot of fun to play.

    While action elements feel forced in, and the game’s system often feels like it doesn’t match the characters, Concrete Genie’s heartfelt story and dreamy visuals still make for a short but unforgettable experience.

    Pretty visuals and a heart-warming story make this mix of exploration, graffiti- and ghost-puzzles a decent as well as relaxing experience – although one with weaknesses in terms of battle system as well as some technical issues.

    An indie game aimed at the adolescent public that has a good finish and remarkable artistic section. It's short and it can be repetitive until its last quarter, but you can enjoy during its few 6-8 hours.

    Concrete Genie is a gorgeous game that will fulfill your eyes, but it fell short in terms of gameplay mechanics.

    Concrete Genie’s painting tech impresses at first and its heart is certainly in the right place, but the game ultimately proves too aimless to support its already brief running time. Adorning the city in landscapes of your own creation quickly loses its luster as you realize that what you create lacks meaningful interactivity. Even the jarring addition of combat midway through doesn’t do much to counter the sense that Pixelopus couldn’t find a way to build out a full game around a simple gameplay idea.

Concrete Genie is a charming and beautiful game unlike anything I have played previously.

Concrete Genie is a touching story, that makes you appreciate life and the little things. I loved the games world, the creatures, art style and music. The game gives you so much creative freedom and makes everything you do and make feel unique. To me, this is a steal at $30 with a VR mode included and is a must play PlayStation exclusive and earns a spot in Sony's first party no doubt. Expand
