Effie is a decent traditional third person platformer, but could have been so much more. Perhaps we've been spoiled in recent years, but I couldn't shake the feeling that Effie could have been elevated if it had tied the interesting backstory to the game mechanics or development in some way. As it stands, the narrative is totally removed from the game itself and this makes it feel old-fashioned in the wrong sort of way. Not a disaster but a missed opportunity.

Effie es, sin ningún tipo de dudas, uno de los mejores juegos que ha salido de la iniciativa PlayStation Talents. Una aventura en toda regla, con plataformeo, acción y puzles que, aparte de ser amena y entretenida, cuenta con un estilo visual único, que la distingue del resto. Lástima que la cámara y el control en los combates no sea un pelí mejor.

Effie is a 3D puzzle platformer with a strong nod to games of yesteryear. Simple combat as well as a lack of any real challenge and samey boss fights make it a title best suited to a younger audience.

There’s great enjoyment to be had in playing through this nostalgic nod to the past, but the lacking presence of a challenge truly robs Effie of its oomph.
