Child of Light: Review



Classic. Child of Light plays like an old-school adventure RPG and that’s a great thing. From the turn-based fighting to the exploration, Child of Light is filled with classic elements that keep this recipe fresh and fun to play. This game is a prime example that you don’t have to be a $60 triple “A” with a huge development team to create an amazing work of art that is a thrill from start to finish. The only thing that might turn people away is not being a fan of turn-based combat.


When most people talk about graphics in a game, they talk about photorealism and the sharpest textures, but we can’t forget that there’s more to it than just that. Sometimes amazing graphics come in the form of beautiful artwork with vibrant colors. Child of Light is blessed with some amazing artwork that really showcases this teams talent. The future looks bright for the creators of Child of Light.


The soundtrack in Child of Light has many nods to classics of the past. The first time I heard the main melody on the flute, I was reminded of the Ocarina from Zelda. While battling a boss enemy, the chanting orchestral score reminded me of the theme music to Skyrim. All this said, Child of Light has a brilliant score that wraps this total package even tighter.

Replay Value:

Medium. Trophy and Achievement hunters will want to play this one through for a second time. NG+ also lets you keep your level, skills, and items for another go around in this work of art.

Overall Package:

Amazing artwork and classic adventure gameplay makes for a recipe that everyone can enjoy. Child of Light is a brilliant game that every classic RPG fan should add to their library. Playing through this adventure is proof that grand things come in small packages.


Special Thanks to Mina Sanwald for providing the Child of Light artwork. Check out more of her work here.

    found a sea sһell and gave іt to my 4 year old daughter and saіd “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to heг ear and scгeamed.

  8. Howdy are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you need any html coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

  9. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your
    blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new
    to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for rookie blog
    writers? I’d really appreciate it.

  10. First off I would like to say awesome blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not
    mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?

  11. That was the song, more of a joking-with-friends thing.
    Stephano Gobbi of the Marian Movement or Priests that the Blessed Virgin Mary granted many, many years of personal mystical-spiritual locutions – personal dictations given to Fr.
    Kind of a weird catch 22, there, huh. Break slice into smaller pieces and save.
    I think a lot of dads would buy you one or an older friend would but most guys wouldn t ask.
