Just fantastic. From start to finish. It’s definitely one of the best soundtracks I’ve heard in quite some time – and the voice acting was pretty stellar too. So chock full of emotion!
If you’re playing on PS5, like we did, the game looks utterly fantastic, and it’s hard not to get lost in developer Ember Lab’s transcendent world or get swept up by its wondrous visual style. The game actually looks great on the PS4 and PS4 Pro too, so Ember Lab must be commended for that.
Incredibly simple, with not a lot of depth; but credit where it’s due, even with those limitations, Kena hardly ever gets boring. The platforming is a little underwhelming and finicky, though.
The game is definitely far too formulaic, and unfortunately littered with some pretty major, potentially game-breaking bugs.
Considering that Ember Lab is a former animation studio, it doesn’t show when it comes to its trophies! There’s great variety and balance here, but if you want that Platinum, I can already foresee the hardest difficulty being an absolute pain in the arse!
