+ Exciting turn-based gameplay
+ Beautiful graphic
+ Pleasant soundtrack and atmosphere
= Kinda poetic, which is odd at first
- Landscape is a bit boring. Also because my character can fly, I usually find myself just rushing the area.

Overall, this has been a good run and although it's not on par with my expectations, I'm still satisfied with the time I spent within this fairy tale. 8/10

P/s: Thank you for the game, Bloosh100 <3

If you own this game but haven't played it, you're not living your life correctly.

This fairytale jrpg employs one of the most fun combat systems I've ever seen in the genre. They recreated the wheel and somehow got a flying car out of it. With precise timing and forethought you can interrupt enemy attacks--but they can do the same to you! Boss fights were all such a blast!

The brilliant musical score combined with the storyboard managed to move me emotionally. Prepare to feel sad. I love the artstyle. The rhyming felt a bit forced at times, they could have put just a slight bit more effort into it or just dropped it briefly at times to emphasize that ♥♥♥♥ was hitting the fan.

If you decide to play the easier of the two difficullties you can skip all the random battles and head staight for the bosess. That way it stays challenging and you aren't caught up in repetitive grindy battles or minmaxing your stats with items, finding chests, and crafting. Skipping most random battles will net you about six hours of gameplay (with five or more tacked on if you pursue normal mode like an idiot).

You bought this game when it was on sale. It's time to play it.

First and foremost,
I enjoyed the music the most.

This game has countless rhymes.
Every sentence everyone says chimes.
With so much artistic values, I sure have good times.

Simple yet beautiful and pleasant story.
I played this game daily.
Child of Light sure is worthy.

This is one of those games that makes you think of what a good game is, and what a good game should be.
I bought this game long ago, the PS3 version by chance, I really did not know what it was about but a friend recomended it to me so i got it, and I can say it became one of the best experiences I had.
This game is one of the very few games that chages my view on thing, and that's how a game really should be, not only having a good and fun time playing but to make you question stuff you wouldn't have thought otherwise.

I really recomend this game, it shows there's still hope for Ubisoft.

All right so Ubisoft gets alot a flak for Uplay and Assassin creed but in all honestly this game is a Occli in the Rough
You play as Aurora, a princess lost in a watercolor like fairytale land and is trying trying to find her way back home to her dying papa. Along the way she leans be a Queen by killing everything in her way whethers its spiders, wolfs, dragons,
Family members


Combat is turn based but acts on a speed bar so you have to be constantly on your toes. Combat is similer to JRPG and its certinaly unique, though my only complian is you can only have 2 fighters at a time making it a hassile to switch teammates.

For 15 dollars this game is amazing and I wholeheartly recommed it

Pros
- Amazing Music
-Beautiful environment
-Combat

Cons
-Uplay worked for me but your experience may vary
-Short story

Ruined by Ubi and U play. This is a beautiful and wonderful game yet the idiocy and lies about protecting from pirates wooooo forces them to screw us over with their trash U stank launcher which constantly updates 30-50 megs every few days then goes on to tell me I dont own the game I need to purchase it/contact support etc yeah screw you too Ubi I will never buy anything from Ubi again, forget pirates you're cutting your own throats well enough, no single player game should ever require a constant connection let alone a 4th and 5th party launcher harrasing you Go die in a fire slow and painfully Ubi scum

Pros:
-Stunning artwork
-Beautiful Soundtrack (Features Cœur de pirate)

Cons:
-The game tries too hard to make all of the dialogue rhyme; after a while it gets quite annoying
-Boss fights are forgettable
-Battle system is simple and gets boring and repetitive

I was really looking forward to this game, but got tired of playing it after a few hours. I was greatly disappointed. Thankfully, I bought it when it was on sale.

Review written after 2 hours of play. Doubt I'll finish this one.

First, the bad: it uses Uplay which means that Steam family sharing for this won't work. My wife won't be able to play this at all unless she buys a copy. That's annoying because I didn't care for the game, but she found it interesting. In that regard, it was a bit of a waste of money.

I really liked the art style - it's very well presented. The game is told in a series of rhymes, which are a little less well presented. Some of the rhymes are clumsy and forced. Many of them are forced to the extend that there are nowhere near the same amount of syllables on the rhyming lines - the rhythm and flow of the poetry is way off. It grated on me, but "A for effort" I guess. Putting that aside, the story (so far) seems interesting: something about 19th century Austria and a girl named Aurora who may (or may not) be dead. I suppose I'd have to finish the game to know what's actually going on.

But I won't be finishing because the main mechanic here is JRPG-style turn-based combat, which I loathe. I've wasted hours of my early gaming years on this, and I can think of no worse way to waste my gaming hours than repeatedly and slowly choosing what action I want to do for N characters on every battle turn. This is not for me. If it's for you, you'll probably have a great time.

So given that I hate the central gameplay mechanic, am annoyed with Uplay killing family sharing, and twitch my eye at the neat-but-flawed rhyming twist: not recommended.

All of these things are somewhat me-specific so if you don't mind them, I imagine you'll have a much more enjoyable time.

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.

Very easy to learn the controls, even after putting it down for months and going back to it. Didn't notice a whole lot of wiggle room for going back and finishing plights, so that was a bit of a disappointment, but it was a fun, Beautiful game and worthy of completing (I'm horrible about finishing games) and I'll be playing it again, I'm sure.

I just started it after playing the demo some month ago. Beautiful graphic style. I like the earlier platformer elements better than the rpg fighting style, but even not beeing a fan of RPGs i just love the gameplay. I can feel the FEELS comming...
