Review – 4 out of 5
The minute you load up the game, you get carried in a sea of beautiful – yet simple – graphics. The story is told without any narrative speech but once you find the fox, she will serve as your guide to help you find where next you need to be going. You have so much to explore and find on the islands. Unlock special content such as new outfits, lullabies and a gallery of breathtaking artwork from the game. Rime’s control is pretty straightforward so anyone in the family will be able to play it without any problem.
Rime is the kind of game that makes you think and relax at the same time. The sounds of nature accompanied by piano are the perfect mix to help you go through the puzzles and unwind.
I’d recommend Rime to anyone that is looking for a bit of a challenge and a beautiful story.
