Steven Universe: Save the Light feels like watching an episode of the show mixed with some sweet old-school RPG nostalgia. It's got the pure heart that makes Steven Universe so special, which makes it all the more tragic that it's just so riddled with stability issues. I hope that future patches will alleviate these problems, but this is a game that could have been perfect. Instead, it's just a colorful shell of its potential — beautiful on the outside and a complete wreck on the inside.
