Genres: Action, Platformer
Clan O'Conall and the Crown of the Stag is a very solid, Celtic-flavoured, action-plaform/puzzler that could be so much more with a little more effort. Everything, from the platforming, puzzle-solving, and fighting, to the three unique heroes that players will have to constantly swap between are very good, but the experience leans a bit too much towards casual-friendly territory. Not a piece of cake, but solutions to each and every problem are way too obvious, and as a result the whole adventure soon loses its immersion factor. A good game, sure, just not a strong recommendation.
The playable characters in Clan O'Connell and the Crown of the Stag are individually unique and the players must have some reflexes that support the knowledge of what each character is capable of. Although the entire run may feel a bit short, you would give yourself some credit for being able to complete the game with a balanced use of all the playable casts played while switching them in real time. You may feel that there is a lack of ‘new game plus’ or extra content after clearing it for the first time.

It’s fun, it’s bright, it’s beautiful, it doesn’t take itself too seriously and its constantly changing mechanics keep it from being repetitive. It’s easy to see this game as superficial due to its graphics and light-hearted humour. However, so many of the characters, bosses and environments have been painstakingly researched to make sure it connects with Celtic mythology.
