    Little Orpheus is a truly enjoyable and well-packaged adventure, with a great storyline, a sparkling script and a setting capable of capturing the player's attention from start to finish. The extremely linear gameplay doesn't mesh too well with console game standards, but it is undoubtedly a title to behold.

    Little Orpheus is an experience more than it is a game. This hilarious story takes you on a wild ride with awesome aesthetics and funny quips all over the place. Where the simple and sometimes boring gameplay lacks, the narrative picks up the pieces tenfold. Don’t go in expecting a challenge and you’ll enjoy your time.

    This is a well-written and visually impressive game that conveys the developer’s clear love of its cinematic serial-based inspirations. It is a chilled experience and a fairly pleasant way to spend five hours. Unfortunately, the simple control scheme proves to be not up to the standard required for a game in this genre, and after a rather weak ending there is very little replayability for all but the most hardcore achievement hunters.
