    Too ethereal?

    I have to admit, I'm more of a beginning, middle, end type gamer. I enjoyed Journey but didn't quite understand all the hype surrounding it. It was likely over my head which is fine with me - I am a simplistic gamer and proud of it. Keep this in mind with my review as I'm sure this is a similar situation. I liked Rime but that's it, I just liked it. It wasn't great, I wouldn't play it again. The graphics are nice and the controls work fine, but I need a bit more substance to my games. Clear, straight-forward substance that I don't need to interpret. Just a beginning, middle and end.

    So, first off this game is very pretty. A really nice art style that's colorful. I really enjoyed the game. I'm not a great puzzle platform gamer in general, really complex games frustrate me. This games puzzles were generally easy to moderate as long as you thought about it. Plenty of unique areas to explore and I never got lost. The only reason I gave it four stars is because the collectibles and keyholes( important to the narrative) were hard to find or get to compared to the rest of the game.

    This is a great game for kids who haven't played puzzle-type games before. The narrative is nice and the gameplay and graphics are beautiful. The game is a bit on the shorter side (a bonus for younger kids, a negative for teens/adults) and the puzzles involved don't often take much thought to figure out (again, a plus for younger kids or novices - a negative for experienced or older players). I got RiME for my 7 year old kid and I think it was a perfect fit.

    Truly a gem. The Soundtrack is amazing and the story gives you that charm a Zelda game offers as well. Gameplay is similar to Ico and Shadow of Colossus. You can tell a lot of heart went into this game and I truly enjoyed to the core. It certainly has replay value and I am not finished yet but I know this game will stick with me. The music alone gives me happy tears. Any age, especially adults like myself, will love this. I think adults will appreciate what went into this game.

    My GOTY 2017...

    RiME surprised me. I was expecting a simple platform along the lines of Journey, but instead it was a thoughtful exploration of the 5 stages of grief. I could say more, but I don't want to spoil anything. Play this title if you want to be emotionally moved! My other GOTY was Hellblade, for the same reason -- both games were personally moving in the best and surprising ways :)

    Beautiful looking game with a touching story. Lots of well hidden collectibles and chapter select to find them. I really loved this game and didn't want it to end. The music was lovely and the mostly silent character is something I always enjoy. Really glad I bought this game, well worth the price.

    If you are looking for a game with great game play look somewhere elese. This game i's lacking in that department with few puzzles and lots of walking. But tis game is abut the journey and how you get there, not so much anything else. If you were a fan of journey you will love this game

    This is a gorgeous and astounding game! Set in a world you just want to explore, with interesting puzzles and challenges to overcome. Much like games such as Ico, Zelda, Journey, or Abzu. This is a game that will pull you in and take you on a GREAT adventure!
