    Slow, boring gameplay. The environment and graphics look visually appealing, but that is the only good part of the game. The whole game is too slow and full of unimportant talking.

    As I played Child of Light for review, I found it to be a game that I wasn’t itching to play, but rather enjoyed myself when I did. A pretty, diverting yarn that I’m thrilled exists, but is perhaps a little too nice to recommend wholeheartedly.

    While not the underdog classic some gamers may have hoped for, Child of Light is an enjoyable platform adventure with a surprisingly complex turn-based battle system. It also doesn't hurt that the game is absolutely gorgeous to look at.

    A beautiful journey made possible with the power of the UibArt engine. Child of Light is one of the nicest surprises we've had in a long time.
