Critic Reviews for El Hijo: A Wild West Tale

It's hard to play El Hijo without wishing for a little more flair in its stealth system.

Its gameplay is good, but what really sets El Hijo apart is its amazing setting and charming use of a child protagonist.

A charming, gentle take on the Wild West and stealth genres aimed at all ages, but with occasional spikes in difficulty which may trouble younger players. The art design and narrative are both captivating, so providing you have the patience for stealth and puzzles, it's highly recommended.

An experience with a great message and a simple but funny story.

With its unique visuals, clever environmental puzzles, and non-violent gameplay, El Hijo is a welcome entry in the somewhat overlooked stealth/puzzle genre. If you don't buy into the gameplay before the repetition sets in, however, it can become an adventure that's easily abandoned.

El Hijo - A Wild West Tale is the perfect stealth game for those who are looking for an experience that is not too complex but still able to whet the intelligence, thanks to a mix of excellent level design, well-calibrated puzzle sections and many solutions offered in sandbox environments, all immersed in a spaghetti western atmosphere.

El Hijo is a joy to play. Despite the occasional wobble, it's a rewarding and remarkably serene stealth tale with plenty of heart.

El Hijo is certainly a lovely experience. It has gorgeous visuals, as much storytelling as a player wishes to see, smart puzzles, and some of the more frustrating aspects of stealth games are given features to make it more palatable to a larger audience. Sadly, though, these features dumb down the stealthing side to an extent and take away the dynamic feeling of many others of the genre, leaving players coming for a stealth heavy game wanting more.
