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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.
