Everything about this game is amazing, the pixel-perfect art, awesome gameplay, the heartwarming story and most of all the 10/10 music. The game starts easy, teaching you simple controls and as you progress, the game knows it and challenges you by adding more mechanics with ever increasing level of complexity...

The platforming in this game is a puzzle in of itself, challenging you to find ways on how to overcome a certain room without giving hints or clues. While it is hard you can always change the difficulty with "assist mode" to fit your own needs.

My favorite thing about this game is the music, it's phenomenal, I really like how the music changes through each level, it starts soft and as the game progress it becomes more and more upbeat raising your stress levels. There are times when the game really gets challenging and pushes you to the verge of quitting, however the music compels me to completion every single time. I just can't give up, it's just that good.

Celeste is a game you'd never expect to impact you the way it does, the story is great and evokes various emotions. I never really paid attention to it at first, it was just there sitting alongside all the backlogged games in my library. Tried it once, and what came next was fascinating. It quickly became one of my favorite games. I rarely come across games as well designed and as well thought out as Celeste, I highly recommend it, it's a masterpiece!

It’s ironic that a platforming game’s greatest, most innovative elements lie not in the platforming itself, but around it. Yet perhaps that’s the point. Matt Thorson, the game’s designer, is clearly a master of platforming mechanics, as evidenced by his work on TowerFall and some truly insane Super Mario Maker levels. Celeste reaches beyond, showing that tricky, well-designed platforming challenges are really just the tip of the iceberg. There’s far more underneath the surface. And maybe that’s worth dying for.

Celeste is special, because not only does it serve up a delight in precise platforming and environmental puzzle-solving, it also tells an emotional story of a girl trying to overcome her depression. While there are times where it feels like the mountain drains you of your will, it’s important to never stop pushing.

For the first time in ages, I have absolutely nothing to complain about. Celeste was everything I’d hoped for and then some. I’m not saying this is the best video game I’ve ever played. It’s much too early to start declaring things like that. What I am saying is that this is an essential gaming experience. Everything this team set out to do they accomplished. If you have any love for indie games, you’re about to fall head over heels. These people have created something very close to perfection.
