Crescent Pale Mist Review (RunDLC)

SOE's Crescent Pale Mist is a side-scrolling 2.5D action game that casts you as a magician named Yunou, who enters the dimension of Gasyukal to battle witches, possessed suits of armor and other foes. Success hinges on the use of her spells, as well as good old-fashioned button mashing. In addition, it’s in your best interest to complete each of the six levels as quickly as possible to climb the online leaderboards. At just $5.99, it’s a potential impulse buy, but prepare for lots of frustration caused by imprecise controls and cheap enemies.

"This game is too hard and frustrating for me"?

While some of the review complaints are in fact, valid, I feel like the reviewer didn't even do the tutorial, wich is vital to actually know how to play the game.

Also, to target, you can also press R1. Look up the controls...

Well, the platforming does fell needlessly difficult. Could have been polished up even if its only a $6 game.

I'm sick of all these stupid reviewers giving games a bad score because they suck at a game or don't even know how to play it.
This game is a mash-up between bullet hell shooters and side scrolling games.

This is a port of an old doujin game and it's aimed at the bullet hell audience. We like our game with challenge instead of games that require no skill at all.

The reviewer however is an idiot and failed by even mentioning this is a button masher. You need react to enemies and situations, do the right moves and right combos depending on the situation. There are a lot of freedom to freestyle your combos and it's supposed to be a fast paced game.

I can imagine this reviewer just going through the first stage walking slowly and hitting enemies thinking this is like Castlevania. This is more like a side-scrolling Devil May Cry or Ninja Gaiden.

There should be an official license required for game reviewers, the first test of "no idiots and people who suck at games allowed" would weed out 90% of these random idiot reviews.

I'm really enjoying the game as well

I think it's kind of boring.

If the game is difficult, sounds like a buy.
