On Switch, Child of Light keeps on being a fantastic, poetic and powerful playable fairy-tale for the whole family, with strong arts, a beautiful story, some easy to understand mechanics and a lovely soundtrack.

Child of Light is a great game today as it was four years ago, a delicate and stylish gem which shows that even if you produce AAA title with dancers and assassins you still manage to create something ethereal and gentle.

Well-suited to those who want a creative RPG that both sticks to and deviates from this genre's normalcy. If you're never played it, well now's the time. Go on and enjoy Child of Light in its Nintendo Switch prime.

Child of Light Ultimate Edition is an ideal game for the Nintendo Switch, especially if you never played the game previously. On the other hand, there's no much novelty for those that did finish this title back in 2014.

Child of Light is not an entirely new game but despite its four years of age, it's still easy to recommend to RPG players. With an amazing audiovisual environment and an interesting combat system, Child of Light certainly feels like it could have gone further when it comes to its plot and despite occasional fluidity issues, the game is a marvelous experience to indulge in.

Visually one of the most pleasing looking games, Child of Light's turn-based gameplay hasn't aged that well. Despite that, it is only recommended for those who overlooked it during the initial release. There is nothing new added that provides an incentive to replay it again on Nintendo Switch, and you will have to deal with some mild performance issues as well.
