    It’s an interactive metaphor for grief, and all those strange, complex emotions that all seem get balled into one when you’re grieving. RiME is a beautiful game in so many ways, but this is what makes it truly special.

    RiME is a memorable game. A simple and attractive one that really moves us and leaves us as speechless as its protagonist once we realize the true meaning of the whole adventure.

    It might not achieve the levels of ingenuity displayed by some of its counterparts, but Rime stands on its own merits. Its captivating visuals, engrossing soundtrack, and rewarding puzzles are a wonderful combination on their own, but the game’s narrative elements and ultimate payoff go well beyond expectations to deliver something truly memorable. It’s been a long journey to get here, but Rime is most certainly an experience you don’t want to miss.

    RiME is one of the most elegant free roam adventures out there, a beautiful and moving game.

    Rime doesn't introduce new quality in the business of interactive storytelling but borrows good things from the best. You'll find echoes of The Last Guardian, Ico or Zelda, then you'll appreciate tons of passion, and in the end you will probably become very fond of this game and remember it for a long time.

    A slow-paced game that requires attention and imagination but repays with stylish beauty and solid puzzles. [08/2017, p.75]

    Rime's artistry is unquestionable. Each world is enchanting in its own way, from the naturalistic peace of the first to the abstract doom of the last. Its soundtrack is similarly beautiful, capable of evoking wonder, tension, and fear in equal measure. But when compared to its influences like Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, and Journey, it doesn't hold up too well. Consistent navigation problems, some frustrating puzzles, fiddly platforming, and severe frame rate dips make Rime feel like a well-dressed tribute act.

    Starting to play this game I could never imagine that it would leave me so deeply impressed in the end. But still, the game completelyStarting to play this game I could never imagine that it would leave me so deeply impressed in the end. But still, the game completely engrossed all my life for those two days I've been playing it. Gameplay is based on settling the puzzles, and, good it is, those puzzles are intricate enough to keep you interested throughout the game and are easy enough as not to let you be bored with finding out how to settle this or that one. Visually it looks just good enough to add to the wonderful atmosphere of this masterpiece of a game. Some scenes made me seat mouth agape so beautifully done they were. And of course the story. Touching the very deep of my heart and biting the corners of my eyes with tears. All of these parts make the whole game singularly special and obviously imperative to play for those who love emotional games. Expand

Podría ser mejor pero no deja de ser un juego notable.

    Detalles: Sufre de algunos problemas de rendimiento pero terminas por acostumbrarte y pasarlo por alto; sería el mayor problema que tiene; además de uno que otro detalle en las animaciones que deslucen el resultado visual un poco; además, la falta de puzles más variados puede generar cierto cansancio al jugarlo, aun así vale la pena en todo momento.

Sadly, it runs like crap on my PS4 pro. To me, framerate is king. 60 is good, 30 is okay. Anything less (or in between, while we wait for HDMI 2.1's VRR) and I get annoyed. Playing Rime was, in its current state, very annoying to me: the constant stutters, hitches, slowdowns ruin any sense of immersion.

    I stopped playing after a couple hours. I'm waiting for a patch to either get the performance closer to 60 or lock it at 30.

    I can't believe they'd release something this promising in such a sorry state.
