Claire de Lune is a game that definitely has its enjoyable parts, but the heavily-advertised narrative is problematic and many of the platforming sections are downright disappointing. If the price wasn't so steep, this would be an easier sell to those who like challenging puzzle adventure games. All of this along with the bugs and lingering performance issues make it hard to recommend.
There’s a lot of promise here but it’s smothered by Claire de Lune’s insistence on punishing you for not being able to read its designers’ minds. If you were to take the game’s inside levels, pretend the outdoor areas don’t exist and halve the price accordingly, you’d have a real gem. Or just disabling all of its infuriating invisible walls would do the trick. As it is, Claire de Lune left me fighting to have fun and, missing daughter or not, that’s not a battle I have the stamina for.
Overall, Claire De Lune is a fun experience that could have used a little more edge. The core gameplay loop is good and it is occasionally terrifying when dealing with aliens, which is why I give it an 8 out of 10. It has some amazing graphics and musical accompaniment which adds a lot of value to the title. The fact that there aren’t any real bugs to speak of gives the game a higher rating. The game is not a bad title by any means, but it’s not a stand-out performer in the puzzle genre for me. However, since Claire De Lune was created by a small indie studio, this is a great start for Tactic Studios. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
