Like the main character, I'm of two minds about it. Thinking back on it there were pieces I really enjoyed. But it was also the kind of game I couldn't play for more than a half hour at a time.

Embers of Mirrim is a platformer of its own kind with puzzle elements and which makes a very original use of the two analog sticks that are part of the Nintendo Switch control scheme. It may have its frustrating elements but the game's benefits largely outweigh its shortcomings and is a very recommended game for fans of platform games who also enjoy a puzzle component.
