A challenging and atmospheric platformer with a remarkable sense of tension, occasionally let down by finicky controls and unfair fail states.

Stark and beautiful, Feist is a platformer that provides much adventure with its limited means.

Feist's smart design ideas are hampered by its difficulty

Although its premise was simple and delightful at first, playing through FEIST was a trying experience and one that I would not want to repeat. Others who have a penchant for unforgiving games like the Souls series may find joy here, and if you're looking for something more thoughtful or forgiving, keep walking.

It also doesn't feel like you go on much of a journey. There's little variation in the forests and caves, and you'll be done in about three hours. That said, Feist is still worth checking out if you're curious. It establishes an eerie mood, making you feel vulnerable to what lurks in the shadows. It just gets hung up in awkward moments at times.

Every challenge requires you to think on your feet and use unconventional moves to succeed.

If you look past the frustration, though, Feist is a commendable title for someone who is after a simple story and simple gameplay.

There is a unique vision here for the world at play, but the design decisions, along with frustration, just didn't leave me with a great experience. It won't last players more than a few hours, but maybe that's for the best.

Feist may be pleasing to the senses, but it's frustration for the hands.

Feist feels like Limbo and Where the Wild Things Are had a not so fun love child.

Feist is a tricky 2D physics-based platformer that is very challenging. The difficulty spike might be too much for some players, keeping them from enjoying the full experience. It would be a shame because the graphics, gameplay mechanics and sound of this stylish release give us a solid game on PS4 that will certainly test your skills in full.

I had a good time with Feist and loved what the game set out to do on PlayStation 4. There's more than enough content to keep you entertained, and the game's challenge will test your skills every step of the way. If you're looking for a 2D game on PlayStation 4 you should definitely check out Feist!

As an action game, Feist succeeds on numerous fronts. Its visuals are gorgeous, and cleverly incorporating environmental elements into combat adds an interesting layer of complexity. However, inconsistent difficulty balancing and frame rate problems are glaring issues that belittle the game's strengths.

It's definitely not my cup of tea and will be an unfamiliar journey for anyone who's a fan of so called "hardcore" platformers, and yet I don't see Feist appealing to fans of narrative platformer fans either. Pick this one up if you want something different, but be warned – it's got barbs.

At the end of the experience, it's one that wouldn't be worth missing, but getting to that point could be disappointing more than inspiring.

I kept at it and did find the experience enjoyable. I'm just not sure most people will enjoy it as much as I have, even though there are some awesome moments in it.

The environment Bits and Beasts have created feels dark and slimy, dank and frightening—a nice place to visit, but perhaps a touch too convincing in its dangers.

If there is any game that will make you see red, Feist is it. Although it looks stunning, the frustrating controls and near god like movements of the AI at times can make the game less fun than it should be.

Feist is a gorgeous adventure that all should undertake. The game can be challenging, but its gradual build and the environment's guidance make it accessible to anyone. The story of this innocent fur creature risking life and limb for love is simple and relatable, and the resulting emotion is a driving force in the darkest of times.

That said, Feist is a rather short game. The game's length means that it suffers in some aspects such as it's eventual lack of variety, artificially extended gameplay via difficulty, and leaving the player hungry for more. The linear nature the game's puzzles are solved also means that there really isn't much replay value in the game. It's a nice and quick experience, but it will leave you wanting more. Players not accustomed to punishingly difficult platformers might find the challenge a little too much to progress. Overall, the game shows much promise, but there's not really enough of it to really sell itself.
