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.
With its gorgeous art, exemplary combat, and hand-crafted aesthetic, no RPG fan should miss Child of Light.
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 seems content to only scratch its own surface
Child of Light is a singular adventure that embraces sadness in a beautiful, affecting way.
It may not be as transcendent as it wishes it were, but it's still a lot of fun to play.
As visually resplendent and periodically fun as Child of Light can be, it too often buckles under the weight of its own aspirations.
