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.

Effie is good 3D Platformer that left me with a big smile on face. The Red Plains are a beautiful location to explore, especially given that you have an awesome hoverboard to do it with. The combat does hold it back a bit but the overall package is one that fans of 3D Platformers should definitely experience.

I enjoyed Effie a lot, mainly because it reminded me of playing games in my youth. Exploring and completing little challenges is fun and rewarding. That's what games should be shouldn't they? Rewarding and fun. A few technical issues aside, if you are looking for an old-school platforming title with quite a bit of gameplay variation then look no further, Effie is a fun game to play.

Effie is a fine action and 3D platform game. The combat is bad, but the platform part is good. Do not expect complexity, though. Effie is a simple title, either because of its story or difficulty.

Effie is an action adventure and platforms game with a classic flavor. His argument does not shine for his originality, and his duration isn't very long, but the sensations of being playing something similar to the games in which it is inspired is palpable, and that is an achievement for a modest game like Effie. If you missed those classics games, Effie is your chance.
