Yes, Uplay is lame, but personally I have never found it to be all that annoying, just as annoying as any bit of DRM. This game is awesome. The art is amazing, story is cool, and the turnbased platformer concept is a very fresh thing, to me at least. The combat can get a little bit repetitive but that is the nature of a turn based game in my experience.

This game is rather semi-typical for an RPG. Some grinding required, but not entirely. I got to what I believe is the next-to-final dungeon without needing to grind a single bit on the easier difficulty. The game's story is directly from a fairy tale book, and is a nice breather from all the anime plots. The most important part of it, though, is the acryllic art aesthetic and how it interacts with the character and world design. It all blends in perfectly. You'll see no Grim Reaper here, only a dragon or two, perhaps. There isn't much post-game and new game+ content, bear this in mind.
If you are reading this during the summer sale, I would call this RPG a must-have for RPG fans. Just don't mind the Origin download-wall and you'll be fine.

Short but cute. When our child stories came to life, you end in Lemuria, with Aurora, the child of Light. Little girl with all the weight of her world on her shoulders and the strength of his pure heart to fight the darkness.

It is strange to say that but, it is a romantic game. After the game, I entered a fantastic mood, which I can still feel now, two years after. It is an interesting game; but that's not why I recommend it, the world is so filled with interesting games. It is Good. It is a game you will always remember. You'll recall floating in the air, fighting weird-looking monters (but, they were not at all frightening), lovely team members, and everything else.

I've played hundreds of games, famous and unfamous, old and new, RPG, SLG, RTS, ACT, each and every kind of games. But none of them impressed me more than this one.

Child of Light is a fantastic little RPG that has some intriguing depth to it. At times the story can be all over the place, and often the narrative and lore of the world (while charming) are thrust upon the player as though they've seen this all before. The combat and battle system, as well as the world traversal are really engaging and does add a good bit of strategy to the RPG mechanics. Turn based combat can get stale, but not in Child of Light. Visually, the game is beautiful with a unique art style. It's a definite must buy for anyone who love RPGs, interesting artistic pieces, or even if you just like games and it's on sale for < $10. It's a strong buy at $15, as well. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in a charming, engaging game.

Ubisoft doesn't disappoint me for once.

Pros:
  • Art/atmosphere is astounding, you can really tell they put a lot of care into the look and feel of this game.
  • Well polished 2D platform and RPG elements.
  • Combat is engaging and fun. While the individual combat mechanics used in this game can be found in other RPGs, when viwed as a whole, it feels like a unique experience.
  • Wonderful co-op experience to enjoy with a friend or significant other.
  • Nine very different and interesting party members.
  • Great soundtrack.

Neutral:
  • Requires the use of Uplay. This might be considered a flat-out con for some. While I view it as a slight annoyance, not a huge deal for me.
  • Rhymes, Rhymes everywhere.
  • Game is kind of short (I beat it in about 13 hours), however, it is also rather inexpensive.

Cons:
  • Game isn't fully voice-overed.

A game so sweet
to let go you shall resist

and though you know me not
you must try it, I demand!
*he means insist*

A tale about a girl that's sweet
in a land where various creatures she will meet

to find a way home, and save her kin
- a story-line you certainly have already seen.

But amidst what you know, and have already tried in taste
you will find an enchanting graphics and a gameplay well paced.

Though not overly complex or ridiculously hard
it is such a sweet treat - this game will grow to your heart.

Pretty Simple review here.

This is a great game. Great art, great story, easy but fun battle system.

Only downside is the length. It plays very quickly. (and don't take that to mean I want more grinding developers)

That being said, I'd say it's well worth the $15 price tag.

The game has a great story and atmosphere, with beautiful scenes and visuals. The characters are lovely. The combat gets a bit repetitive, but using the nice variety of characters can balance it.

Dear child,

Tuck yourself in and listen to what I have to say.
It is for those too, who have doubts with Uplay.

When I first heard that a third party program needs to be installed,
I thought 'It's too much a bother to be buying this at all'.
But I was in love with the game as I was with Odin Sphere,
so I researched and researched until all doubts were clear.

It seems that Uplay has improved over the years,
as told by a friend whom I very love so dear.
After registering I instantly unravelled
that once I ticked 'auto login' it is never a hassle.
Switch Uplay to offline mode so it won’t meddle.

As confused as I was along the way,
thorough research finally made me pay
and playing this game now makes my day.

Child of Light is like a delightful bedtime story.
You play as a little girl, very cute and dandy,
though her arms are a little bit wobbly
to be carrying a sword both sharp and pointy.

What I really appreciate is the effort that they took
to make each and every sentence look so good.
The beautiful world of Lemuria will captivate your eyes,
with beautifully matched music as you zip through the sky.

Bottom line be told,
This game is made of gold.
I did not regret buying it a single bit,
and I’m writing this so that your path may be lit.

Godspeed.

Beautiful art with a hand painted look
like it was taken right from a children's book.

Fantastic music sets the tone
while our princess tries to regain her throne.

And while the story might be simple
its as cute as a childs dimple.

The battle system is quite well done
making every fight a lot of fun.

Attack, magic and even defense!
Using tactics just makes sense.

Though if you dislike my rhyming tone
then I would leave this game alone.
