Pros
Cons
Relaxing atmosphere.
Some thought-provoking questions.
You can play a guitar.
Philosophical questions and pretentious poems are in abundance.
A lack of incentive to explore the islands.
Side-quests just feel like brief time-wasters.
Bland puzzles requiring box-carrying.
Doesn’t run as smoothly in handheld mode.

Verdict:

Love-struck gamers with a pendancy for artsy games may feel at home with a title like this, mostly thanks to its soothing atmosphere and colourful visuals, but it’s just so difficult to find reasons to love this game.
