    Effie is, without any doubt, one of the best games that has come out of the PlayStation Talents initiative. A full-fledged adventure, with platform, action and puzzles that, apart from being fun and entertaining, has a unique visual style that sets it apart from the rest. Pity that the camera and the control in the combat is not a better film.

    A great indie platform puzzler with distinctive graphics and a compelling gameplay hook. Recommended despite a few niggles.

    With its benefits and shortcomings, Inverge Studios puts on our table a game that old school players will love; However, we cannot stop asking a little more for a title launched for the present generation. Effie is an entertaining game, yes, but if you're not a true lover of games like this, you'll end up getting bored soon. However, it is still an interesting proposal that more than one will leave hooked to the first.

    If you’re a 3D platforming addict who needs a fill right now and you’ve played everything else, it may be enough to fill the time, but otherwise, it feels like there are plenty of other games you could be playing instead.

    Effie is a 3D puzzle platformer with a strong nod to games of yesteryear. Simple combat as well as a lack of any real challenge and samey boss fights make it a title best suited to a younger audience.

    A solid, yet bland 3d platformer.

    Effie is a decent traditional third person platformer, but could have been so much more. Perhaps we’ve been spoiled in recent years, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that Effie could have been elevated if it had tied the interesting backstory to the game mechanics or development in some way. As it stands, the narrative is totally removed from the game itself and this makes it feel old-fashioned in the wrong sort of way. Not a disaster but a missed opportunity.

It's not a big game (AAA), just an indie development that has taken advantage of the fact that there are currently no games of this genre. It took me 7 hours to complete the story, but these kind of games usually have this duration. Platforming is fun, the combat pretty simple and the puzzles are made for players of all ages. Surfing along the red plains is very comfortable and the story is the hook to keep the player focused on this fantasy world. Expand

Las luchas pues me sobran un poco mucho, relleno para alagar el juego, mejor si hubieran añadido más recolección de objetos, el que hay es muy limitado.
    Recomendable si te gustaba la N64, mucho mejor si solo se hubiera centrado en torres y plataformeo , donde se hace muy bien. Le pongo un 7 porqué me ha entretenido esa parte.

La storia è molto semplice come anche la grafica, semplice ma curata. Il gameplay si arricchisce man mano che si progredisce nel gioco. Dura più o meno 4 ore ma la vera pecca del gioco è l'originalità, non ha niente di nuovo, ne nella trama, ne nel gameplay. Comunque gli amanti del genere apprezzeranno sicuramente perchè è un gioco ben fatto fatto. Expand

    A cute adventure
    Effie is a 5 hour long 3d Platformer where you play as Galand, a man whos youth was stolen from him by a witch
    You set out to defeat her and reverse her spell…
    The story is kinda cheesy, but this is the charm of the game.. its cute, it warms your heart as a dad tells his daughter the story of this hero..
    He narrates as you play and it just such a sweet idea
    Its not capitalized as well as it could be, but I still appreciate it…
    Everything surrounding the story and set up is pretty eh
    its fun to play, just not really anything special…
    Theres a woods hub area that you can hover around on your shield and explore, go to optional areas for some trophies, but the main goal is for you to get a shard in all 3 of the main areas…
    to do so youll have to battle and 3d platform you way to a bunch of keys…
    The 3d platforming, level design, fighting.. all of it is very mediocre, but still enjoyable…
    In battle youll unlock new moves as the story progresses but its basically light attack, heavy attack, blocking and special attacks…
    Defeating enemies and collecting the rune stones round this map ewards you with xp that levels you up to increase your special attack bar as well as health…
    the level design its self, again fairly standard.. you can double jump, grab ledges and long jump..
    Again nothing special but still enjoyable…
    This is just overall a nostalgia trip, everything is fairly linear so you don’t get lost, but at the same time you feel so free to explore, reminding me a bit of Jak II
    IF you wished JAk II was much smaller, less polished, and way easier this is it…
    definitely worth playing for 3d platforming fans, but not something you need to absolutely play
    I give Effie
    a 6/10
