Tamashii is one of the most disturbing experiences I have ever had. With intense horror and gore-laden imagery, this is a title that will stay with me for a while. Even with all the positives with the setting and art style, at the end of the day, this game is a poor platformer, with pretty solid puzzles to work through.
Take away all the disturbing and horrific imagery, and Tamashii becomes a run-of-the-mill, trial-by-error indie platformer. It will test one's patience and frustrate to no end, thanks to its design and structure. It is much too rigid to allow anyone to get immersed in, and the tedium of having to memorize a new level only fills the soul with regret. The horror flourishes are what save this otherwise subpar title.
Tamashii is a truly challenging puzzle-platformer that will often have you stumped as the game’s mechanics stretch your mind like it may never have been stretched before. Couple that with its ominous and disconcerting themes of religious cults and the dark side of deities feeding off and manipulating faith, Tamashii is sure to leave an impression. However, that impression may be short lived as the game’s short length limits its opportunities to flesh out its world, themes and game mechanics.
