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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Those who need a strong narrative or a lengthy, replayable experience will end up being disappointed, but as a platformer with powerful music and unique visuals it's well worth adding to your wishlist.
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.
