    On Switch, Child of Light keeps on being a fantastic, poetic and powerful playable fairy-tale for the whole family, with strong arts, a beautiful story, some easy to understand mechanics and a lovely soundtrack.

    Sometimes there are video games that are small pieces of art. Child of Light: Ultimate Edition is a clear example of this, being a great work with a superb audiovisual section, an innovative narrative and a perfect gameplay for RPG fans.

    All in all, Child of Light can be simple and easy, and played with low stress, an experience breezy. The aesthetic is one up there with the best, and if you avoid enemy encounters bosses can be quite a test. Without a doubt here’s a title that’s unique but subtle, yet demands your attention and a look; I’ll hear no rebuttal. Well-suited to those who want a creative RPG that both sticks to and deviates from this genre’s normalcy. If you’re never played it, well now’s the time. Go on and enjoy Child of Light in its Nintendo Switch prime.

    Child of Light is one of those games able to enter the collective memory on tiptoe, silently, but without time that can in any way sweep away the track.

    Child of Light Ultimate Edition is the last occasion to play one of the most particular, innovative and interesting Ubisoft title. Arts and Ost will get your heart warm.

    On the whole, Child of Light is an easy recommendation for those who didn’t catch it the first time round. The ‘light’ in the title sums things up nicely – you get game mechanics usually reserved for massive RPG epics in a concise package that’s as beautifully refreshing as when it was first released. It’s a shame to see framerate hitches – however occasional they may be – but they’re not enough to cast a shadow on this delightful adventure.

    A beautiful art style that unfortunately cant carry the game`s final third which falls totally flat.
    The story also suffers towards the end
