Poi, gripping with nostalgia, delivers standard 3D platforming in a adorable and relaxing way, putting nothing between you and the thrill of exploration, but this resolve to keep the game simple and to the point leaves it lacking in content. It's a fantastic way to unwind, though not much else. The exclusive content to the Explorer Edition adds little to the experience, and you're better off purchasing the title on Steam or another console, unless you want to pay the premium to have the option of mobility. A charming presentation coupled with dull interaction leaves this specific product mediocre.

I don't want to completely rag on Poi: Explorer Edition, as it is a competent 3D adventure game with some appeal.

With gameplay that is a love letter to classics like Mario 64 and Sunshine, Poi: Explorer's Edition is a good time; even if the visuals lack detail.
