    Although far from being revolutionary, Kena Bridge of Sprits is a compelling action-adventure game with an heart-warming hero and really cute creatures to play with. Ember Lab put in this game all their experience in character design and animation, giving us a splendid – but also somewhat repetitive – cartoon movie to play with.

    Kena: Bridge of Spirits grounds itself on relaxation, healing, and cuteness, getting us to reflect and meditate on the beauty in the world when there is darkness abound.
  3. Kena isn’t especially inventive, but the game is an entertaining hodgepodge of tried-and-true ideas.

    As its first major release, Kena: Bridge of Spirits must be considered a success for Ember Lab. There are areas where significant improvement can be made, especially its combat, but the game provides a strong base to build upon. The overall gameplay will be very familiar to 3D adventure fans, but the visuals and charm help to make it feel like a fresh experience in the genre. More adventures for Kena and the Rot would be very welcome.

    Отличная игра, играем всей семьей, за штурвалом младшая дочура - 8 лет, нормально справляется на минимальной сложности. Трогательный сюжет.Отличная игра, играем всей семьей, за штурвалом младшая дочура - 8 лет, нормально справляется на минимальной сложности. Трогательный сюжет. Интересные бои грамотно разбавлены интересными загадками и путешествием. Картинка и стилистика игры просто отличные, прям отдыхаешь в процессе. Тленышы - олицетворение милоты. Производительность на слимке на достойном уровне, вообще без проблем. 10/10, на кончиках пальцев, не знаю за что тут бал снимать. Expand

    If I could evaluate this game only on the sights and sounds, it would be a 9 or 10.

Even on my lowly, non-pro PS4, this game looked amazing and I enjoyed exploring it. The gameplay was good, although I was very surprised at times by the combat challenge (I am no action RPG maven, mind you, but I have played a fair number of them). So, this is just my experience, but after a number of slugfest slogs, I found it much better for me to set things to easy mode, and enjoy the platforming and puzzles and work through the combat when necessary. I don't recall a great amount of items and upgrades being worth much (perhaps as a result of my easy mode choice?), but I really enjoyed my time wandering around in the game's world. I would love the studio who did this to make a sequel or a different game with a similarly impressive world to explore. Expand

    Great Debut from Indie Developers

    I tried this game after hearing the music of it not because of the visual or the gameplay. I notice that its sound like my country traditional music and instruments which I'm correct about it as this game inspired from the culture of Java, to be more specific, Bali.

    Music for sure its great as Its funny and a complete joy moment to play a game with a great arrangement of "Angklung", "Gamelan", "Kolintang" and other traditional instruments from Indonesia. This is the greatest experience to enjoy my country traditional music hahaha.

    Graphics is great as they already on the level of film-making industries with a stunning cutscene. But there are some visual bug and texture issue where I guess it's related to the optimization for PS4.

    Performance not too good as the FPS tend to drop to below 20 sometimes especially when I'm entering "Adira" arc. Hopefully they come up with an update to optimize and fix this issue.

    Combat surprisingly challenging. I've played Sekiro and I can say that this game provide you with a great challenge where some non-souls gamer will find it way too hard. My suggestion don't dodge too much but learn the parry mechanic as it will help you to make the battle way easier.

    Story quite good but lack Kena's background and the main goal as the story just start where Kena is purifying the area and that's it. Need more background and concrete conflict of the story to make it more appealing.

    Design of the menu and UI is the biggest reason or the main reason that make me want to drop this game. It's like they didn't put much effort into it which make my first impression is horrible for this game.

    Update my rating from 8 to 6 due to the performance issue. Keep getting worse as you progress and the texturing also getting worse. This game is not well optimized so better not purchase this game on PS4.
