Child of Light is a masterpiece and should be played by anybody who enjoys JRPGs or RPGs in general. The game is short, sweet and thought invoking.
Simply the best game I've played in a long time. Really enjoying the Grandia-like battle system with real-time/action aspects overlayed onto the turn-based combat, feels really well polished, and the difficulty level on Hard is, while it's not really hard, is just challenging enough to prevent it becoming simply a routine walk-through and keeps it worthwhile.
Agreed I switched difficulty to Hard after reading an article that Ubi were going to rename Normal to Casual which made me realise it was going to be too easy. Glad I did, as you say its just hard enough to not make it an X tapping session like some recent RPG's, yeah I'm looking at you FFXIII. Best game of the year so far for me. Hope it sells really well and some of these other publishes realise there is a good market for traditional JPRG games still in the west.
Ive seen streams and I have to say it looks aweful. But reading some of the comments on here has made me really want to try it out. Maybe next week when I get paid, or Ill wait for it to be a PS Plus game. I don't like judging a book by its cover but sometimes I cant help it.
It looks incredible, you sir are an idiot.
yea you're definitely an idiot lol..The game is amazing.
Im an idiot for thinking a boring looking 2D side scroller looks bad? I didn't say it is bad, it just looks it. Some games aren't very fun to watch but amazing to play.
I played a little of this game over the weekend and was really amazed. Screens don't even do it justice. It's absolutely beautiful to behold and I felt the gameplay was quite enjoyable and reminiscent of a good ole' jrpg.
Good, not great. Shortness is an issue to be sure, but the main disappointment is the way the story fails to go anywhere interesting.
