KOI is without question a game that relies more on its look and sound than its gameplay, as the overall design is a perfect fit for such a game, but the gameplay is very lacking. Even though the experience of going through the levels can be somewhat enjoyable the first time, the overall lack of difficulty and the shortness of KOI really makes it hard to justify buying for most PS4 owners.
Koi is a really short game. You can complete the game’s story in about an hour or so. Aside from the story there are puzzles pieces that can be collected in each level and there are also different character skins you can play with. There isn’t much else beyond that. Koi’s simplistic approach is ultimately its downfall. The game offers little to no challenge, is fairly shallow and is way too short even by today’s standards. It feels like so much more could have been done with this game.
KOI is a game that knows how to push your buttons. It draws you in with its beautiful soundscape and enchanting premise, but then takes you through an often shallow experience with some frustrating moments that discord with its otherwise serene exterior. It's a game which seems far more suited to mobile play than console, where longer play sessions highlight its lack of depth.
