The Forbidden Arts is a game that feels like a relic from the past. If someone had told me this was a budget title on Gamecube and somehow got the HD treatment, I would believe them. It just lacks polish and interesting content to keep players interested. I doubt many people have heard of this title and even fewer will remember it. It is just a plain adventure title that never steps outside the boundaries of mediocrity.
The Forbidden Arts is a beautiful, vibrant and fun game for the whole family. Side scrolling action at its best, it also brings a tiny bit of nostalgia along for the ride. Challenging puzzles make this game addictive, while great design keeps you looking at the screen.
The Forbidden Arts presenta uno stile molto simpatico e diverse idee buone, ma la realizzazione lascia decisamente a desiderare. Comandi imprecisi, un frame-rate incostante, tanti bug ed alcune scelte di design inconsistenti non permettono al titolo di esprimere il pieno potenziale, risultando così purtroppo in un'esperienza più frustrante che affascinante. Occasione persa.
