Candleman is an experience rather than a common videogame. This interactive game is easy to recommend thanks to its wonderful style and the feedback that the player gets from the game.

Nice platforming game that may be too slow for some players, but makes almost everything right.

Candleman: The Complete Journey is an average puzzler that seems to show off everything it has early on, leading to a flat experience overall.

At times, Candleman: The Complete Journey can feel like a chore with its slightly erratic pacing and inconsistent tone. However, those that stick with it will find a surprisingly heartwarming story mixed with an innovative mechanic and some great environments.

This simplicity makes the game easy to pick up and get the hang of right away, but later on it starts to feel stale.

A nearly perfect game for all to enjoy. New gamers will be enamored with the Little Candle that could, while longtime gamers may just remember why we love what we do all over again. An inspiring tale of self discovery that is revealed lovingly through gameplay and experimentation, and a small gem of a game you definitely don't want to miss.

Candleman: The Complete Journey is one of the best indie platformers I've played in some time. Certainly, one of the best 3D indie platformers. Candleman mixes clever mechanics, varied level design, and a whole lot of charm to create an experience that's guaranteed to light your fire.

In its final third, Candleman pulled me into the story, gameplay, and setting all at once. It was finally a full fledged, dynamic, puzzle-platformer rather than a simplistic maze. While the story's end left some questions on the table, I thought the overall message was an important and beautiful one: sometimes what you think is your light/salvation is actually your darkness/demise. And sometimes, the light we seek has always been inside us. At first, playing Candleman will be an unsatisfying, slow-paced act of just going through the motions, but if you stick around, you'll discover some magic by the end.

Candleman: The Complete Journey is a very nicely developed 3D platformer that has a great hook or "gimmick" that it introduces immediately and utilizes throughout.

The journey towards the light is something everyone can relate to, and the game is framed like an enjoyable fairy tale come to life. The visuals are gorgeous, and the controls are easily accessible. Without spoiling anything, the game didn't end how I expected, failing to bring a satisfying closure to the game's narrative. Movement speed is a tad slow, and the jump is a bit floaty, so that could be a deal breaker to some. Candleman is only available on Xbox One and PC in North America, but can be found on the Chinese PS Store.
