Fe is a short-lived platformer that still manages to outstay its welcome in some regards. Its platforming is okay but unimaginative, and its best ideas, like the tree jumping and singing affecting the world, remain underused. It can be a beautiful game at times, especially with regards to its music and audio design, but not so much so that it hides its rougher edges and undeveloped concepts.

An earnest eco-platformer that is at once under and overcooked.

All Fe's colour, charm and cute make it utterly recommendable despite its flaws.

Shallow mechanics hide a game that is much more simplistic than it first appears, but this is still a passingly entertaining take on a 3D Metroidvania.

Fe is neither a good platformer or a compelling puzzle experience, and its narrative inspires a disinterested shoulder shrug

Fe's ethereal world compels you to explore, but its adventure never builds to something greater.

Fe is a magical, expansive and multi-hued world that creates a sense of marvel. Like a real-life walk in the woods, it is a thing of elemental beauty that demands to be inhaled and admired.

For a game that leans so hard into the feeling of discovery, Fe has shockingly little to say about anything. It has no clear goals or worthwhile revelations. The idea of mystery is more alluring than any of the actual mysteries in this forest. It's certainly pretty, and the platforming and light puzzle-solving are adequate enough. But Fe very obviously aims to evoke a certain emotional response, and it fails to evoke much of anything at all. That's nothing short of disappointing. Sometimes the trees are just trees.

Though it rarely presents a challenge to the player and its opening half is arguably filled with its better ideas, these are minor flaws in an otherwise fantastic experience. I can't recommend Fe strongly enough.

Fe bets for an experience that is far from the classic concept of a videogame and has a clear focus on the player's feels. Smart, beautiful and well executed, it achieves its goal and makes us think about our own relationship with the environment.

Fe is a thoroughly lovely adventure, full of wonder as you explore and lose yourself in this darkly wonderful forest. Its distinctive art style and the unusual creature designs conjure up something that's both familiar and alien at the same time, which is only enhanced by the etherial lighting and the animals' voices. A few nitpicking design issues and some shaky performance on Switch aside, it's easy to recommend this charming game of discovery and singing.

Fe is an original platformer that fans of animals will surely love, thanks to the way it connects with nature through the language of the forest. Although it doesn't manage to send a message as powerful as it's visuals in regards to gameplay, it's worth your time just for purely artistic values.

Fe's charm is in its concept and its songs, as I learned new songs with different pitches and tones, and learned to communicate with new wildlife. It also has flashes of visual brilliance, thanks to its use of soothing water color landscapes. But a humdrum story, lack of direction, and inconsistent controls didn't leave me wanting an encore.

Fe is a little, wonderful game in an unforgettable and colorful forest. Unfortunately speaking of controls and mechanics something's not quite right.

Fe is very pretty, and the music is equally stunning. It's a wonderful little game let down by some drawn out puzzles and some tricky climbing mechanics.

In Fe, tried and true gameplay mechanics meet new ideas in interesting and beautiful ways.

Fe is all very lovely and (literally) harmonious, with fun layers of platforming. Coloured flowers and singing is a nice enough way to spend a rainy afternoon.

If you can get past some of its flaws, you'll be in for an experience that's full of wonder with fantastic visuals and an amazing soundtrack. Which I keep looking for online, by the way. But my search queries just keep returning discussions about Fire Emblem.

A truly beautiful game, uplifting, gorgeous and alive.
