Child of Light Review

"The Princess of Lemuria"

Child of Light is a RPG produced by Ubisoft Montreál, released in April of 2014. In this game you embark in a journey, playing as Aurora, a young princess whose soul is brought to the Kingdom of Lemuria. On this journey, you will have to recover the three sources of light and defeat the Black Queen in order to restore the Kingdom of Lemuria.

Gameplay

In terms of gameplay it is a good game but nothing impressive. The combat mechanics are pretty simple. However, you need to think you actions well in order to act in the best and fastest way as possible. At the start you will be a "lone wolf", but with time you will find many interesting and strong allies which will help you, by forming a party of 2 characters during the battles. You also have a firefly as an ally, which you control with the mouse. A pretty interesting mechanic but it becomes pretty repetitive during the combats. Out of combat it is an simple 2D platform game, with some puzzles, traps and tons of hidden loot. Sadly, in terms of combat, the game becomes extremely repetitive in the second half of the game because at some point, excluding boss battles, you will repeat the same tactics over and over again since the variety of enemies is pretty low. It gets so repetitive that at some point, you will start avoiding your enemies instead of attacking them to earn experience. You also have a perk system, as expected in a RPG, which is also pretty simple, yet intuitive. There is also a gem system called Oculi, that gives you the chance to upgrade certain stats of your characters.

Story

The story in this game is told in an extremely simple way, yet that is part of the beauty of it. It is a very sad story with some unexpected plot twists, supported by excellent characters and good dialogues, except the fact that they always rhyme, something that really grinded my gears, especially during the second half of the game because the rhymes start to feel too forced. Apart from that, it is an excellent tale of the journey made by the protagonist Aurora, in her attempt to save the Kingdom of Lemuria.

Visuals

Visually this is an epic game. The game art is absolutely astonishing, it really gives life to this wonderful fantasy world. Everything as an immaculate aspect, it is hard not to like the artistic work made in this game. Another highlight is the fact that this game as the "feeling" that all was hand crafted, as if the game was drawn on a canvas. Really spectacular in this category.

Longevity

I completed the game in about 9 hours, completing the main quest and almost all secondary quests (except one if I am not mistaken). It is not much for an RPG, yet this is one unique experience, with an indie feeling and reduced price. There is hundreds of loot and many other collectibles spread all over the world, so if you intend to complete the game at 100%, you should take around 12 hours.

Music and Sounds

But for me, the biggest strength in this game is the soundtrack. Absolutely amazing! The soundtrack combined with the art style of this game earn the price of admission by itself. It is hard to not be immersed in this awesome world with this wonderful combo of visuals and sounds. Simply astonishing.

Summary

Pros:
  • Wonderful visuals
  • Intuitive combat system
  • Stellar soundtrack
  • Bang for your buck
  • Heartwarming story

Cons:
  • Combat becomes very repetitive

My personal score: 9.0/10

This game is a pure gem. Simple, yet amazing. Highly recommended to any RPG fans, as to 2D platform games fans. With a very affordable price, there are no reasons for you to not enjoy this unique experience.

The game has been fun so far. I'm not overly far into it, but i'm enjoying the actual game.

That said, uPlay is miserable. I sort of bought this on a whim after watching the trailer video when it was on sale, so I didn't even notice this was something I had to deal with. Live and learn. What I learned is I'll never buy another game that requires uPlay. This is why Origin isn't installed on my system anymore. At this point I don't care if uPlay and Origin make my PC faster and increase the overall size of my genitalia, you and your miserable DRM can rot.

Not the devs fault. You made what seems to be a neat game, sorry you work for Ubisoft.

1. Launch the game.
2. Wait until the main menu screen.
3. Wait until the main soundtrack started.
4. Lying down on my bed and relax like a boss.

#10/10 for that main soundtrack.
