"The biggest shortcoming of this FF game is that it has basically no character customization. No class selection like we had in 1 and 3, so the only customization options really come in deciding which equipment to use, but most items you find are straight upgrades over the previous ones. I recommend playing the "easytype" or regular English-translated version, because the initial Japanese release required far too much grinding, which would pad the game to probably 2-3 times its length."

"I like that this game removed 100%-block shields like the Souls games, because it gives the combat a very different, more fast-paced feel. But it still has some typical Fromsoft shortcomings, like a couple of player attributes being near useless, and in the base game, I felt that the weapon variety was pretty lacking. The weapons that are there function very differently from each other, but it's not like a Souls game where you get lots of different weapons with small variations."

"Come for the beautifully animated artwork and fun combat, and stay for the surprisingly extensive customization options and lore. I put nearly 50 hours into this game in one playthrough, working toward 100% completion. A really great aspect of this game is that you can sort of choose how challenging you want the game to get. Getting to 100% was a big challenge for me, but there was still a lot more I could have taken on if I'd wanted an even more difficult experience. The game makes it worth it."

"This is a really nice game to pick up if you want something to scratch a nagging Metroidvania itch. Not too long (I finished it near 100% in 2-3 sittings) but with gorgeous artwork and music, plus a unique satisfying midair ricochet/jump ability I'd never really seen before. Several of the abilities reminded me of Hollow Knight, but this game is much shorter, with more emphasis on platforming and puzzle-solving than on combat."

"This was one of the better games in the "My mom won't let me buy GTA" genre."

"Protip: You get the bad ending if you don't beat the game in co-op. I hot-seated all 100 levels with a friend one day because we only had one controller, and we got the bad ending because of that."

"Part Zelda, part God of War, part... Portal? I guess? Decent, but not as good as any of its obvious inspirations"

"Overall, I think they made something even better than Brawl, and close to Melee's quality level. The actual fighting feels as good as ever, but this game's adventure mode is one of the worst. World of Light is a slog, and the implementation of spirits means you effectively decide the difficulty of each fight, except the hardest ones which basically boil down to luck and cheesing the AI. But Classic mode and regular ol' Versus modes are all you need."
