Top Critic Average
Lost Ember doesn't reinvent the wheel and also fights with some performance issues on the PS4 Pro but with the amount of playable animals the game really manages to stand out in the genre and makes its world feel alive. If you're looking for an relaxed adventure with a lot of cute animals and an emotional story on top of that you should get this game.

Games are often escapist entertainment, but not everyone enjoys games that are full of tension, conflict or violence - at least all of the time. Lost Ember is a different form of escapism, an emotional and soothing journey into the natural world and its nonhuman inhabitants.
Though it follows a very recognisable 'indie adventure' formula, Lost Ember has exactly the right amount of heart and creativity to make it compelling
I enjoyed every moment of Lost Ember, and when I stopped playing, I just wanted to get back in the game and wander around more and find more of the memories.
It's very apparent that Lost Ember is a labour of love; one that forgoes any sort of depth and complexity in gameplay for the sake of beautiful presentation and an interesting story.
Lost Ember offers a compelling journey through a beautiful landscape, seen from the eyes of various creatures, while searching for lost memories.
Lost Ember is a glimpse and brings an exciting, dense and quirky story. The silence of the wolf in his memories was very well translated in the narrative, which shows a reality subject to forgiveness, revenge and anguish in the discoveries. Lost Ember should be played calmly, enjoying the view, especially the small details and the sounds of nature, braving the forest with various animals. Only loses points in processing and uneven fps, leaving the experience tiring.

Lost Ember has its heart and soul in the right place, and every time I discovered a new area I was left amazed with the gorgeous vistas and intense beauty of it all.
Lost Ember tells a compelling story amid gorgeous backdrops that keep you playing until its beautiful conclusion.
Despite a slow start and some minor bugs, Lost Ember is a beautifully designed game that offers great story and fun gameplay. Last Ember is 7 hours long game, but thanks to diversity in collectables, it has great repeat value too.
