AereA is artistically great, but has some issues with its gameplay. Poor design choices and some bugs are the flaws of a game that is uplifted only by its wonderful soundtrack.

AereA is not the best option if we are looking for a strong RPG experience. It is instead a boring experience that saddly shows great intentions but fails offering an extremely repetitive mechanics.

It's an action RPG with no action, and it's just not fun.

Although having a few highlights in both the art design and soundtrack, AereA falls down in almost all other areas – a dungeon crawler that offers nothing new, other than a cool concept, and fails in the things that are essential to an action game, such as combat and quest design. It may offer local 4-player co-op, but even playing with friends won't bring this game to life.

AereA puts a fun and intriguing spin on the dungeon crawler-RPG style, making the entire game about music.

AereA is a dungeon crawler in which the graphic design is inspired by real musical instruments: despite this original idea, the game offers nothing but redundant gameplay mechanics and a boring adventure to the player.

Make no mistake, AereA is an interesting take on dungeon crawlers that has an interesting conceit. With the game's theme centered around orchestras is something that I have genuinely never seen before. Unfortunately, this is where the innovation ends. The final product is a reskin of a paint-by-the-numbers dungeon crawler that is devoid of motivation, originality, or replayability. If you are looking for an action RPG to steal hours of your life, you may be better off taking a look at a certain other release from last week. The only thing that the two games share is a hellish undertone. Being boring as hell counts, right?

AereA takes the original concept of a musically themed RPG but doesn't do much with it. The combat is too easy, and exploring different regions is unexciting. While there are a few pieces that stand out, none of them make up for an overall dull experience. What could have been a unique game is, unfortunately, a boring one.

Aerea is too simple and ripetitive to be considered a good game. There aren't changes of the rhythm of the gameplay and game has no own identity.

AereA's priority is to make the player feel totally engaged in a mystical world that has been fully committed to representing the power of music. I found myself astounded at how many mechanical holes this game contains when its visuals are so contrastingly stunning.
