Crossing Souls has a bunch of elements that should be right up my alley, but some flat writing and uninspired design really keeps it from hitting the desired marks. There’s a good idea here, and I have no doubt that a teen adventure starring ghosts and Egyptian Gods could be really dope, but a cool concept doesn’t make a great game. Instead, it just makes the end result all the more disappointing.
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.
