VGChartz's Lee Mehr: "I’ll admit to a trifecta of positive biases when reviewing: a new developer, new IP, and fitting the middle-market mold. I think these are all great qualities to see flourish in the industry. But over-emphasizing this background info shouldn’t diminish Ember Lab’s actual work either. This team mastered a quality that even veterans have an issue with: succinctness. It’s not making adventurous strides in the genre, and a few issues still get to me, but that invisible-yet-tangible quality makes it more than the sum of its parts. That’s what puts this developer and Kena: Bridge of Spirits among 2021’s best success stories."
