      Beautiful Experience Stifled By Frame Drops

      The developers put so much heart and effort into this game, you can tell by the environments they created, the music, and the story. It is all a gorgeous experience that seeks to envelop you in the environment of the island and pick your brain with puzzles. The raw emotion you feel is amplified by a terrific score and matches perfectly with each stage of the game. It was great, all of it. Then there's the frame drops... My goodness... What on earth were the developers thinking releasing a game with compression issues that caused the game to jerk around the entire time? It makes me want to cry. Such a gorgeous immersive game deserved better from the development team. Had this not been an issue, I would have given the game a full 5 stars. This being said, I would still highly recommend playing the game despite the frame drops. I just hope that one day they will release a path that fixes the constant frame drops.

      great game after last patch

      Posted

      This is a very beautiful puzzle adventure game that you can complete at your own pace. The newest 2GB patch almost completely fixes most issues and drastically improves the background and character detail. Everything is super sharp and vibrant now, unlike the blurry mess when the game first came out. Even the opening movie was improved. Rime has a unique story and is a game you will remember for a long time. I'm really glad the developers took the time to fix all the earlier issues. It is so much more fun to walk around and discover items now. If you buy the physical version, it comes with a download code to get the soundtrack free online. Highly recommended especially if you are looking for a good single player adventure.

      I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband and was so excited for it I gave it to him early. He beat the new Zelda already, and from the early gameplay videos I saw I thought he would enjoy this game as well. Nope he did nothing but hate on it immediately. The game is far more simplistic than Zelda. There is no tutorial in the game. You kind of discover the controls as you move through the island and complete the different puzzles. Ultimately, it is not as difficult as Zelda, but I thouroughly enjoy the simplistic style of this game. I enjoy the puzzles and problem solving. Finally a frustrating game that is a massive stress reducer. Four stars because there is no really history or story given at the beginning of this game. For me, that is a little too goofy. They could have given the gamers something to go off of without revealing anything.

      Almost unplayable

      I bought this because I’ve heard great things about this game but after an hour of playing it, I’m already regretting buying it for the switch. The game just slows down and the frame rate drops badly docked and when I tried playing it portable, it was almost unplayable. I wish I would’ve tried it before I bought it. The visuals and music are great in this game and overall the controls don’t give me much trouble but the game just lags so badly sometimes that it already caused me to miss a jump twice and I’ve only played it for an hour. Sadly it looks like I’ll be trading this one in and either picking it up for PS4 or just skipping over this game and getting something else. If they fix the frame rate it seems like a game that’d be pretty good but until then, I would either buy it for a different console or just get a different game.

      If you could cross ICO with MYST, this would be the game it created. Great soothing soundtrack accompanied with cinematic game play makes for a fun and relaxing game. The game comes with no instructions. There are hints at which buttons to press that cause certain actions in the game and should be easy to pick up and play for anyone. My first play through took at least 8 hours to play, but I started again to gain achievements. The game initially feels pretty open world; however, you are pretty much guided on an overall path, meaning additional play through will be pretty quick. I like playing on the Switch; however the game is $10 that other systems. After playing on the Switch (which at times stutters), I also purchased Rime for my PC which has better graphics. :)

      the successor to "journey" on PS3

      remember that game journey? got high scores for being artistic? this is the same template. however this game is set in nature with animals and trees, water, and old ruins. journey didnt really make me excited to play. but this game called out to me much more. the best way to play this is on PC at 60FPS....however.. switch has a physical release that includes a 10$ mp3 code for the soundtrack (which is beautiful) and a 12 page booklet. rare too see booklets in games anymore! the inside of the case also has artwork. only issue on switch is the framerate. make sure to put the motion intropolation option on your TV to make it much nicer.

      Very bad port of a great game

      If you have the option to buy this on PC or anywhere else do so. I waited forever to get the switch version only be severely disappointed with how bad the port is. The game is fantastic. But it's absolutely riddled with frame rate issues, even and especially during cut scenes or emotional moments. If a game like Breath of the Wild can run as well as it does on the Switch there's really no excuse for this. Don't even think about trying to play this game in hand held mode as the difference in graphics is huge.

      Ok Game - Was Expecting More Tutorial

      I pre-ordered this and waited months to play. However, now that it is here, it's just ok. I haven't played the game too much, but spend 3 hours playing the first day. The graphics are ok, but not as beautiful and crips as I was expecting. The game feels a little under developed as far as storyline. I was expecting some sort of help or tutorial. You are left just on your own from the first second of game play to just sort of figure things out. Some sort of opening story would be helpful at least.
