Tales of Kenzera: ZAU Review | PC | NoobFeed

NoobFeed editor Jay Claassen writes - Tales of Kenzera: ZAU will take you on one hell of an adventure as it tells a story of grief and overcoming it. The combat and movement mechanics will definitely have you losing more time than you’d like as you explore this masterpiece in design. However, you might also end up learning a few things about yourself and maybe even find closure in a recent loss of your own as you experience Zau’s story, and Zuberi’s resolve.

Yeah and SBI couldn't care less that the studio has gone under. All they're doing is patting themselves in the back on how great their virtual signalling is!!

They don't care about games and gaming, only about pushing their politics and agendas.


Tales of Kenzera: ZAU (XS) Review | VGChartz

VGChartz's Lee Mehr: "Reminiscent of The Last Case of Benedict Fox, Tales of Kenzera: ZAU feels like 2024's definitive example of mismanaging Metroidvania 101 tenets. And it's a shame to be that harsh when its inspiration feels like a wonderful antidote to the soulless company (EA) backing it and the commercialized entity (TGA) which first advertised it. Through an impassioned sense of grief, Abubakar Salim wanted to craft a story that authentically tries to wrestle with those same feelings. That's a great achievement of the medium as a potential creative outlet. Unfortunately, though, it's saddled to a haphazardly-designed game that falls short of sustaining that enthusiasm and squaring up against its contemporaries."

this review is a 5.5 🙄 that game is WAY better than that!

Ouch. I'll admit this one is more of a 5.5/6 score coin flip (if you will), but that's about all I can muster for it. There's so many other Metroidvanias out there that do a better job at game design.
