A beautiful game with great flying, only held back by confusing interiors and a short duration.

This game offers an amazing feeling of freedom and puzzles that are intertwined with the settings. Some vague objectives at the beginning can be a nuisance, but it features an amazing visual style.

Transforming into a bird and soaring through skies and between the floating islands of AER Memories of Old is simply fantastic, and you'll be easily drawn in by its vibrant yet minimalist art style. It doesn't quite make the best use of the shattered world they've created, but for a few hours, it's a gorgeous game and an intriguing story to explore.

Aer Memories of Old is a beatiful game. A place to come back from time to time to enjoy a flight. Forgotten Key has created a complex tiniy world explained well and full of little secret but, at the end it feels small and we want more and more.

Aer is a pretty game, but ultimately there's little to do and not much to compel you on

In a month full to the brim with humongous, time-sinking, big-budget games, it's a welcome break to experience a brief but calming game like AER: Memories of Old. With gentle music, appealing visuals and a majestically simple flight mechanic, AER is as pleasant a journey as I first expected it to be and makes for a great break between the huge October releases.

AER Memories of Old is a pretty basic adventure title, with simple puzzles and no real action elements. You can expect a relaxing experience spanning a couple of hours, with some intriguing ideas, a distinctive personality and some touching moments.

AER Memories of Old is an attempt to make a beautiful story with breathtaking flights and an interesting outset, which, unfortunately, almost immediately causes irritation and yawning due to terrible navigation, bad controls and other mistakes of young developers . Perhaps in the future creators of this game will be able to offer something interesting, but now AER Memories of Old looks like some very early concept, which not passed through focus group.

Ironically, AER Memories of Old doesn't leave much of a lasting impression. It feels like a prototype you might show a publisher to convince them to fund a full game. What's here is charming, but it feels underbaked compared to the games it patterns itself after. If you're looking for a laid-back Zelda-like adventure and don't mind spending $15 for a single play session, AER Memories of Old is a pleasant-enough distraction, just don't expect to be swept off your feet.
