looks like a giant pencil, meets a key. Worst than the keyblade in that Shit series kingdom Hearts.

Not a visual powerhouse but pleasing to the eye, i just expected more of a adventure game than what it seems to be: puzzle/platformer.

It kind of looks like a mix between Ico and Zelda or something. It looks great. Feels like a day 1 buy for me right now :)

It looks like it yes,I still dont have this kind of game for this gen,I mean last gen I had Ico,SotC,Zelda but now it seems they are less.

Anyway the gameplay looks very fun and awesome.

Commented on 2010-04-15 17:13:11

I think it looks pretty bad. Simple geometry in level design, some bad animations (like when falling from a high distance, it's the same animation as when falling from a short distance) and poor visuals overall.

Every game doesn't have to revolutionize graphics at a technical level. I agree, this isn't the most advanced game i've ever seen, but the geometry is clearly adequate to express the art style and the game does a pretty good job looking coherent and good within it's own context. The design of things looks nice, the lighting of the scenes is nice and i really don't think the animations are bad at all. Perhaps the jump is a little too exaggerated but well, all the other stuff looks pretty smooth and nice. Also i didn't like the character design so much at first but the game has, so far, grown on me to the point that i think they look pretty cool.

It has this nice sort of fairytale feel to it as well, i love it. I just hope it plays half as well as i imagine it does :D

I hope it plays well as well, despite not liking the visuals that much...

Could be cool. Won't be anything near ICO or SOTC though. Wish the jump animation weren't so awkward.

A breath of fresh air.

Hopefully not, I don't want game-breaking framerate like in SOTC.

This looks fun! Call me crazy, but I sort of get the same vibe from this that I did from Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire on N64... maybe it's the music or something. You know, the canyon level where there are those little droids floating around in the air, and you can get the jet pack and stuff. I loved that game :D

This looks good. People complain about the geometry and animations of the game yet games like final fantasy kingdom hearts have been very popular. I'm looking forward to this one.
Commented on 2010-04-18 04:22:10
Yeah well not everyone plays FF or Kingdom Hearts either


Sotc didn't have game breaking framerate. The game isn't reliant on it
