Top Critic Average
Its asking price may be a little steep considering the game’s lack of replayability, but if you’re a fan of platforming and adventuring, Elli definitely has enough to offer that’ll keep you engaged for several hours.
A charming, pretty and well made puzzle platformer, Elli is unfortunately short, unambitious and derivative, while offering no incentive to replay it once it's over.
A fixed-camera 3D platformer that's charming enough in its own modest way, but limited ambition and a series of glitches keep Elli well short of the genre's greats. If you have any work left to do in Super Mario Odyssey or Yooka-Laylee, you probably don't need this.
Despite the gameplay variety in the different worlds, Elli unfortunately offers too little to stand out from the crowd. If you liked the shrines in the last Zelda and if you like a light version of them, you can take a look and won't do much wrong. Thanks to a very easy level of difficulty and the lack of fights, Elli is unlikely to offer enough entertainment value to everyone else.
