Child of Light Review


Come close my readers as I get ready to review, one of the finest digital games to come into view. Child of Light is a work of art that springs to life, it tells of a story of a girl named Aurora and a rather large knife. Get used to these rhymes as they are found throughout the game, but rest assured my readers, it never grows lame. No these rhymes make the game stand out and make it a fairy tale come true. So read on my readers for our official Child of Light review.

When Child of Light was originally announced, I thought that the game would be good….Just not this good. The good team over at Ubisoft have crafted a gorgeous JPRG with lovable characters, a great story and an amazing battle system. Child of Light utilizes the UbiArt framework and is nothing short of spectacular. At any point, I felt like the game could be stopped and framed for artwork that belongs in a museum or on a wall. It’s breathtaking design will suck players into its 12+ hour adventure and never let go. From the opening sequence, I was addicted.


Child of Light is a platforming role-playing video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. The game puts players in the shoes of Aurora, a child stolen from her home, who, in her quest to return, must bring back the sun, the moon and the stars held captive by the mysterious Queen of the Night. Helped by her playable companion Igniculus the firefly and several unlikely allies, Aurora will face her darkest fears in this modern take on a coming-of-age story.

It’s an incredible story and one that shouldn’t be ignored. For $14.99, the game is worth the price of admission and releases on every major platform out there. Child of Light centers around Aurora, a girl from 1895 Austria who contracts a physical ailment that causes her to fall asleep. Upon waking up, Aurora finds herself in the mysterious world of Lemuria which has had its sun, moon and stars stolen by the evil Black Queen. Aurora is tasked with recovering the celestial bodies and ultimately reuniting with her father.

Gameplay wise, the game works flawless. I played the game on Wii U and it looked marvelous. The game never really holds your hand and players are left to explore the gorgeous world around them. I always loved to explore the stunning locals and never minded if I flew of the beaten path for a while. The battle system in this RPG shines and must be experienced to truly understand its simple and intuitive controls. Players could interrupt enemy attacks, change party members on the fly and have your companion Igniculus, either slow down enemies or heal party members.

I could go on and on how much I love this game but I hope this brief but effective review has already convinced you to purchase the game. Child of Light is a near flawless adventure that plays as good as it looks. With the Wii U version, the title supports off TV play and will allow gamers so play the game solely on their Gamepads. It’s a fantastic adventure and feels fresh and new. If you are looking for a new experience on a classic genre, this is your game.

Overall Myvideogamenews Score: 9.5 out of 10.

As always, thanks for reading. Are you getting this game?
