Fans hoping for a positive RiME review won’t be disappointed, as the beautiful looking puzzle/adventure game has done well. This should please anyone that is excited to play the game, since we’re only a few days away from release. Expect more reviews for the game soon, which might be of the positive variety, if this one is any indication.
Nintendo Everything has confirmed that Edge Magazine gave the game a 9 out of 10, which is a stellar score. Interestingly enough, Open Critic states that the game only has a day left before the review embargo is lifted, specifically on May 25. Depending on how well it does, Sony might end up kicking themselves for not making this a PS4 exclusive.
RiME and Reason
The positive RiME review could be an indication of its future success, which is really interesting given the gaming climate. Focusing more on exploration and puzzles, it also has no violence, so that might turn off some testosterone filled gamers. Still, the game could end up being a critical darling, so gamers might want to keep this in their radar.
RiME isn’t the only game to not feature violence, with Sony exclusives like Journey and Flower having similar gameplay. Granted, the latter two are mostly art games, while RiME actually has puzzles to solve and areas to explore around. If the adventure game gets even better reviews tomorrow, it will prove that 2017 is an excellent video game year.
Fox on the Run
Having a positive RiME review from the get go is great, since the title is available on so many systems. It’s going to be released on every relevant game system, including the Nintendo Switch later this year, so that’s good. Gamers with a PC, Xbox One or PS4 will be able to pick it up in a few days.
Judging from the trailers, this could have some of the best art direction in 2017 gaming, which is worth noting. That’s saying a lot since the PS4 has the gorgeous Persona 5 on it, but the game looks wonderful. It’s actually similar to Zelda: Breath of the Wild, though it won’t be as open as the Nintendo Switch wonder.
RiME will be available on May 26 for the PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC, so fans can get ready. The Nintendo Switch version doesn’t have a release date just yet, but it will supposedly come out this year.
