It’s a perfectly proportioned, well packaged, beautiful escape into a foreign world with compelling music, art, and narration. There’s no real added benefits to playing it on the Xbox One besides a few more achievements, but then again, it doesn’t really need any upgrades. It’s fairly perfect as it stands.
The combat might never feel as clever as the visuals and narration but this is still an engrossing and distinctive action role-player. Gorgeous artwork and the narrator is spookily accurate in his comments. Excellent customisation options and an intriguing story. There’s some variety to the combat, or at least the weapons, but little real depth. Disappointing enemies and boss battles.
