WTMG's Aaron Price: "If you are looking for a stopgap substitute for a 2D Zelda game, but with a bit more to offer in terms of depth and playability, Garden Story is the way to go. If you’re not willing to go out there and fight enemies at a particular time, just chill out, handle some requests, meet the characters, head back to bed, then do it all over again. Look for perks. Search for upgrades. This is a game you can either tackle in a handful of hours or enjoy it for much longer, depending on how much you’re willing to invest in it."
