Underneath the 80’s veneer is a wonderfully crafted action-adventure game that could very much stand on its own. It’s elevated by its rich world and characters and strong narrative themes that continually surprised me. Whatever your reason — whether it be the obvious nostalgia grabs or love of action games — Crossing Souls is a thrill ride worth taking.
Ultimately, Crossing Souls will appeal to anyone who wants a wackier and interactive version of Stand By Me with some unique gameplay quirks to keep things relatively fresh throughout, or at least until its mediocre closing stages. The stream of references may be worth the low price of admission on their own, but I found that too much of it fell flat for me to fall completely in love with it.
With its debut project, Fourattic has serviceably captured and recreated a period, with nostalgia and passion bursting through every seam. The 80’s was a helluva an era, and Crossing Souls is a lovely, familiar slice of it. But like the era itself, there are some lows. Crossing Souls’ amount of greatness is balanced by an equally abundant amount of mediocrity, for a final product that comes out somewhere in-between.
