Top Critic Average
With its gorgeous art, exemplary combat, and hand-crafted aesthetic, no RPG fan should miss Child of Light.
Child of Light stands as a wonderfully realised venture into unfamiliar territory for Ubisoft - and a welcome reminder that the industry's major players still have the creative flair to push beyond the lucrative safe ground that they so often favour to create well-crafted, highly-polished gems such as this.
A beautiful game to look at, and wonderfully polished, but a thimble-deep RPG.
A mostly successful experiment at turning one of the world's biggest studios into an indie developer, with the end result being a charming love letter to the best of Japanese role-playing.
A fantastic RPG with a creative aesthetic and fairy tale narrative, Child of Light is a memorable experience that's as fun to play as it is artistically pleasing.
Even without the depth of a fully featured RPG, this streamlined experience still has fun systems to dig into
Child of Light is a singular adventure that embraces sadness in a beautiful, affecting way.
Child of Light seems content to only scratch its own surface
As visually resplendent and periodically fun as Child of Light can be, it too often buckles under the weight of its own aspirations.
It may not be as transcendent as it wishes it were, but it's still a lot of fun to play.
