Shio is not a game for the faint of heart. Tremendously challenging, it truly will push you to the limit of your videogame abilities. The stunning level design, clear visuals and wonderfully tight controls all ensure that the game is fair, but that won't be enough to stop player frustration from ultimately setting in. Played in short sittings this is a taught, tight and compelling experience. Just have an extra controller nearby, you'll need it to replace the one you just threw out the window.

I had a handful of small, niggling issues with Shio that by the end I was willing to overlook in the face of a game so expertly crafted that it shouldn't be missed. I just wish there was more of it.

Shio is a lovely surprise which offers up a precise and beautiful platforming experience. Although it lacks the level of polish as something like Celeste, if you've already conquered that mountain (or – sacrilege! – you're not a fan of its pixel aesthetic), this is a tightly crafted, technical platformer in a similar mould that's well worth a look.

If only that last "generally" weren't needed, it would be right up there with the best of them.

All things considered, if you're looking for a challenge that will keep you occupied for an evening, Shio is worth a shot.

Shio is a decently challenging platformer with beautiful backgrounds and a moving story that you can unravel, which gives it a unique level of depth.

Shio is a fun and challenging 2D platformer that will test your skills every step of the way. There is a solid difficulty curve so that you slowly learn how to survive through the many hazards in your path, and since there are two difficulty options, even those that aren't as skilled can manage to make some solid progress in the game. So if you're looking for a new 2D platformer where running and jumping are all you need to worry about, then you should check out Shio on PS4!

Shio evidently understands the appeal of gliding elegantly between obstacle-riddled levels like an invincible pro, and often comes across as a more casual Super Meat Boy. Yet, the foggy storyline feels distanced from its rapid-fire level design, which can make the attempts at a meditative atmosphere feel forced and alienating.

Coconut Island Games have released a truly satisfying game in Shio. If you like difficult platformers, you'll have a blast with this one. It doesn't have a big story to keep you glued to the screen, but it more than makes up for it with some solid gameplay mechanics and platforming sections that are challenging but also highly addictive.
