From the article, "[Jenni Lada] enjoyed Yumi’s Odd Odyssey, Natsume’s brave effort to finally localize an Umihara Kawase game. I applauded the effort and recognize it’s a platformer with a lot of potential, but honestly? It’s the kind of game that really only an uber patient perfectionist can appreciate. (Say that 5 times fast!) At a $30 price point, it just wasn’t inviting."
