Embers of Mirrim is a nice surprise that seemingly came out of nowhere. It doesn’t feel like a “me-too” platformer, establishing a unique identity with its crazy dual-movement sequences and zen-like platforming. It just needs to hold your hand less when introducing new things, which sadly affects the experience from start to finish.
For a game with so many creative mechanics and unique concepts, it’s unfortunate that Creative Bytes couldn’t get them to gel more cohesively. In those moments, when these disparate elements are at odds with each other, Embers of Mirrim can feel like a bit of a chore. But when it works, Embers is a delight to play, even if it never becomes more than the sum of its parts.
Embers of Mirrim came out of nowhere to be one of the best platformers in any console generation. It will give the player the sense they can do things they never thought possible, and the feeling of self-satisfaction upon beating that boss, finally crossing that tricky section, or reaching a new area is so profound here, it's stunning. Even if you aren't a fan of platformers, this one is a must-try.
