Okay, so this game was very nice. Very engaging soundtrack, nice battles. You might want to impose challenges on yourself however, as abusing certain NPC followers kind of breaks the game.

If videogames can be considered works of art, this one certainly fits the criteria. Gorgeous music, a beautiful world, and an Austrian folk-tale for a story. The game is, by all means, an excellent RPG as well. The story has decent and engaging progression, though at its core it is very simplistic. It has a very engaging combat system, and bosses which can actually be quite challenging (though i only played on the harder difficulty).

This is easily one of my favorite RPG's.

This game is great. I love the story. The art is amazing. The concept is simple and easy to follow while still allowing you to explore and without feeling too linear. And I keep wanting to come back for more. Uplay might be annoying, but after the first couple minutes it takes to sign up and log in before starting, I have never had to bother with it again; so I rather forgot that it was annoying at first. So please don't let Uplay stop you from enjoying this wonderful game.

A fun game to play through. The story is enjoyable, and the combat is fun and different. The customization with gear is an interesting touch, and the ability to switch between modes for enjoying the story or for having drastically more challenging battles is great.
My only issue with this game is that you have to launch uplay to play it, which is annoying.

I adore this game.
It's really beautiful and the music is soothing. I generally find it a very relaxing but rewarding game to play.
The battles can get a bit repetitive, but I didn't find it too much of an issue.

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.

Worth the asking price. the hand drawn art is amazing, the music is amazing, the characters are pretty good also. This game was worth the run through. This is a true throwback to turnbase RPG's. I really enjoyed the character development in this game and i also enjoyed the skill tree. There was a couple of time i had to grind a bit to take on a boss but it was worth it.

This is one of those games that make you long for old traditional turnbase JRPG's with a new twist to it.

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.

Child of Light is a lovely little experience. It has a fairy princess, magical dwarves, and even mouse capitalism!

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.

I am reviewing my #2 fav game from ubisoft

PROS
-Amazing but sad story enriched with flawless art work and music, Brillant artwork and amazing gameplay. love it.

CONS
-Forced rhyming, I know ubisoft's trying to make the story fun but sometimes those rhymes are just stupid.

-Uplay issues when could save does not work

Score: 9.5/10

Child of Light left me delightfully entertained at every turn. With beautiful backgrounds, lovely music, and a fun twist on the standard turn-based style of game play, it provides a comfortably level of challenge as you learn to balance the timing of your attacks and how you delay you delay your enemies. The story is fun, even if a little predictable. The rhyming conversations between characters (and lack there of for one) is a cute little detail for this storybook style adventure.

My main complaint for it is that, despite gathering quite a few companions on the journey, you are limited to two characters in fights (two in a have if you want to count your friendly little firefly). That said, it is balanced by the free swap out, if you even need to do so (casual really did not require it, but the more challenging mode might).

Child of Light is an amazing game. That's the short review. It does, however, have a major flaw: While the art design and turn-based combat system never disappoint, the story leaves much to be desired. Not in the journey, but in the ending.

I do not want to get too into-detail so as not to spoil those who want to buy the game, but I will leave this warning: If you get attached to storylines and value proper closure and complete endings, this might be a game to avoid. The story flows incredibly well until the final stretch of the game, in which the developers sloppily attempted to wrap everything together. It honestly feels like they ran out of budget or time and had to quickly slap an ending on the game.

If you value the journey more than the ending, have at it. It will not disappoint.
