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 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.

If you're a fan of 3D platformers then you'll absolutely love Effie. It's one of the most satisfying games that I've played this year so far.

Effie is a fun 3D puzzle-platformer which pays homage to the classics of yesteryear perfectly. The vivid and luminous contrast between the choices of colours the developers have opted to use, really makes the games visuals pop out of your screen as every single scene is like a child’s colouring book where they’ve gone crazy with the bright primary colours! If you’re not hovering around the overworld at 100MPH, you’ll be fighting evil fiends, solving simplistic puzzles, or traversing perilous platforming. Although the story is a combination of tales we’ve heard before, it’s fun to play through and held the game together nicely.

Effie‘s mixture of fairytale storytelling and fun platforming work to make an endearing and playable little gem of a game. It’s by no means groundbreaking, but there’s a ton of love put into it and it displays excellent design, even though the combat could use a bit more refinement.

Effie isn't going to blow any minds, but its tried-and-true action and 3D platforming design makes for a delightful callback to yesteryear.

Effie does well to pay homage to the platforming classics of the early console wars. The game has a lot to offer both visually and aurally, and the game’s enjoyment is found in adventuring and platforming your way through the open world, solving puzzles as you go. Effie deserves your time.

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.

If they are veterans of the platforming genre, they will come across what we can consider a game to pass the time, ending it in a relatively five hours. If you know any young person who has not yet had a decent introduction to the world of platforming or even games, Effie is an adventure that takes no chances, but that will keep them entertained and happy throughout the trip.

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.
