I kan godt mærke hvor jeg er på vej hen ikke? Child of Light er en af de stærkeste spiloplevelser, jeg har haft meget længe. Auroras fortælling om Lemuria satte sig dybt i mine tanker, og fortryllede mig fuldstændig. Det skyldes de betagende landskaber, den smukke musik og de dybe RPG-systemer, men mest af alt, skyldes det den underfundige Disney-nostalgi som boblede op, og genforenede mig med mit indre barn. Det er der Child of Lights sande magi ligger gemt. Man sidder nemlig tilbage med præcis samme følelse, som første gang man så Arthur trække sværdet ud af stenen, som da man gyste ved Robin Hoods spring ned i floden fra Prins Johns borg, og den følelse er yderst dyrebar.

Child of Light is a surprise, one that is powerful, and aptly full of wonder. It's wonderful to see something so devoid of cynicism. It's wonderful to have something with such a strong message, one that's not just satisfying for us adults, but crucial for a new, growing generation. It's wonderful to have a game that can claim your interest with exciting battles and somber songs. It's wonderful to have a game that can keep your interest, even when its verse is hitting a tin ear apex, because the characters and animations are so expressive, and the stringed melodies are so bittersweet. There is more effective storytelling here in one simple animation, where Aurora lifts her sword in triumph at the end of battle then must let it fall due to its weight, than in many other games combined. For a story about bringing back the light, it's wonderful to see something beautiful even in its darkest moments.

Every aspect of Child of Light has an unmistakably artisinal, organic feel to it. None of it feels focus-tested, or designed to appeal to the broadest possible audience; rather, it always comes off as exactly the expression its creators intended. The artwork on display is stunning, and the combat is constantly engaging, and the characters openly defy genre convention. But perhaps the best thing I can say about Child of Light is that I was often unsure as to whether I was headed in the direction I was supposed to, and I never once cared. I just wanted to fly to every corner of the world, take it in, and smile.

Depuis son annonce, on sentait que Child Of Light avait de quoi séduire. On ne s'y est pas trompé. Artistiquement éblouissant, le titre d'Ubi Montréal possède également un fond inattaquable, avec une progression tout à fait agréable et capable de fédérer un très grand nombre de joueurs, réceptifs ou non au RPG avec combat au tour par tour. Ce jeu tutoie le soleil. Et, on l'espère, ce genre d'initiative occasionnera un appel d'air pour d'autres du même genre chez les autres "gros" éditeurs.

Kısacası Child of Light, bizi hiç beklemediğimiz bir anda gafil avlamış durumda. Ubisoft’un bu kadar zengin ve bu kadar farklı bir oyun yapabileceği, aklımızın ucundan geçmezdi. Eğer dolu dolu ve biraz da sanatsal kaliteye sahip olan bir yapım arıyorsanız, Child of Light’ı kaçırmamalısınız.

Rares sont les jeux qui réussissent à nous épater à la fois par leur réalisation artistique et par leur gameplay. Pourtant, Child of Light est clairement de ceux-là. Véritable conte, entièrement en vers, il nous éblouit de ses décors faits main tout en nous livrant une bande originale quasiment parfaite. Son système de combat, qui sort tout droit de Grandia, s'avère quant à lui finement stratégique et pourtant simple d'accès. Une véritable réussite pour un si petit prix, il serait pratiquement coupable d'hésiter.

Proving that Western role-playing games don’t have to be solemn affairs ala Skyrim and Fallout 3, Child of Light draws inspiration from Japan’s rich role-playing legacy

Child of Light's water-colour fantasy is beautiful to behold - but it's the constantly rewarding, explorative gameplay that's keeps it enchanting.

Shacknews (May 06, 2014)
The soundtrack is perhaps the most compelling we've heard from Ubisoft Montreal to date, and it stays within the flow of the action, whether you're somberly visiting a village or jumping head-first into battle. The art style is wonderful, with a beauteous hand-drawn quality in both the backdrops and characters. The little comic nuances are a nice touch too, particularly the drunk birds at the bar. One side note, the dialogue is... interesting, to say the least. The writers of the game felt that everything needed to rhyme. As a result, it presents choices that aren't always the greatest. Still, its effect is better than most. Child of Light is a magnificently balanced role-playing adventure. It has everything most players are looking for: a battle system that won't drive you mad, a gorgeous presentation, and a decent challenge (especially at higher difficulty settings). This could easily be one of Ubisoft's best games of the year.

Child of Light ist ein charmantes Abenteuer, das Elemente von Plattformern, Rollenspiel und Rundentaktik verknüpft. Und wenn man seine liebenswerten Gefährten um sich schart, fühlt sich das fast an wie beim Zauberer von Oz. Aber Ubisoft Montreal hat den ersten Teil von „modernes Märchen“ etwas überstrapaziert: Das relativ gefahrlose Cruisen durch die Bilderbuchkulisse bei Dauerpflückerei von Schätzen, Tränken und ständiger Heilmöglichkeit raubt die Spannung. Man vermisst das Urige, Gefahrvolle und Rätselhafte eines Märchens, während man in relativer Sicherheit das hübsch illustrierte Königreich erkundet.

As visually resplendent and periodically fun as Child of Light can be, it too often buckles under the weight of its own aspirations.
