    RiME is a game that feels perfect to play, from the very start right up to the epic finish.

    An epic and broad story, music that makes hearts beat and a loving artistic aspect. Those are Rime’s foundations, a true masterpiece that everyone should try. When you get inside this world of puzzles and perils, nothing is going to detach you from the screen, because RiME catches you.

    An elegiac odyssey to come back home. The last videogame from Tequila Works is an excellent example of a graphic and playable mastery with great cultural references. Journey, yes, Ico, of course; but above all, RiME.

    By design the game portion comes first, providing an evocative experience where discovery feels earned and the pacing is spot on. The meaning comes later, at the very end in fact, but in a way that enhances everything that has comes before it. And in the process, leaves both a lasting impression and a cathartic sense of closure once you solve the biggest puzzle in the game -- its meaning.

    Rime feels like a game that honestly believes itself to be a masterpiece, but it falls a tad short of that lofty goal. It needs to tighten up its pacing, polish its controls, ease up on the tutorials and maybe add a few more puzzles for good measure. While it's not perfect, most of its issues would be fixed with some minor tweaking. It's still a gorgeous, fun, engrossing and powerful experience. From beginning to end, Rime is something incredibly special.

    It’s a simple statement that’s both endearing and heartbreaking. It hints at the thousand real-life moments of grief and joy that served as inspiration for this game. That emotional weight shines through, making Rime a thoroughly rewarding experience.

The soundtrack was amazing and every song was perfect with the scene. The art was so beautiful and breathtaking! I loved this game and the journey it took me on. The ending was so incredible, yet emotional, it still gives me the same rush of feelings thinking about it as it did when I first went through the end. I highly recommend this game! Expand

    Fun puzzles that aren't difficult. A great story that can be unclear for some but if you understand it, you're probably going to wipe some tears.

    Roooo... la daube indé du jour est un gros plagiat des petites japoniaiseries habituelles et récurrentes sur lesquelles les otacons se pâmentRoooo... la daube indé du jour est un gros plagiat des petites japoniaiseries habituelles et récurrentes sur lesquelles les otacons se pâment tout aussi habituellement. Quel manque de respect... ou quel hommage peut-être...?

    En tout cas, le développeur espagnol Tequila Works ne se prive pas de repomper sans égard la niaiserie des jeux nippons (et très mauvais) tout en ajoutant le caractère abscons du jeu indé qui désire se la jouer intello et pète plus haut que son cul... sauf que ça lui retombe toujours dessus.

    Voici donc un garçon indigène qui se réveille sur une île modélisée par des stagiaires et boulottée en pas plus de 16 couleurs : on ne reconnaît en effet pas du tout le moteur Unreal -même s'il s'agit d'une vieille version- dans ce qui ressemble beaucoup à un petit jeu smartphone... qui se permet de ramouiller souvent, incapable de maintenir au moins un 30 im/s constant au regard de l'indigence de ce qu'il daigne afficher !

    Mais si le mauvais goût prédomine, appelez ça de la "direction artistique"... si c'est à la fois niais et bête, voire demeuré, appelez ça de la "pure poésie"... et enfin, si c'est injouable, mal foutu et fait n'importe comment, appelez ça de la "profondeur". Rime est donc tout cela à la fois : un ersatz de jeu sans carte, sans but, sans histoire et sans intérêt. On s'y ennuie en un temps record, on s'y endort devant avec sa musique gnangnan épouvantable. Puis, on désinstalle le prétentieux étron indé, le meilleur "moment" du jeu sans conteste.
