  • Effie isn’t going to blow any minds, but its tried-and-true action and 3D platforming design makes for a delightful callback to yesteryear.

  • Its reliance on the past instantly makes it seem older than it is. And, like a young man suddenly cursed with old age, it can get stiff and clumsy from time to time. But just like its jolly old protagonist, who never stops smiling and who flashes a thumbs-up at the concept of grape juice, Effie has charm for days.

  • All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my time playing Effie. With a colorful world, creative story, and the witty dialogue from Galand narrating his own adventure, it turned out to be a fun and pleasant experience. Though the progression and combat system left me wanting, it wasn't enough to make me dislike the game. The problems that arose from combat led to feelings of boredom and monotony, that usually abated with the storytelling and visuals.

  • Effie has a lot going on, but without any real direction. It evokes vague senses of nostalgia from games with clear visions, but fails to do much with the inspirations it draws from. The open world’s visuals are somewhat of a treat synergized well with the impressive shield-surfing gameplay. Mechanically unfocused, the game is ultimately hindered by an overly ambitious approach to the design. Effie might be worth looking for those who are okay with a simple, shallow platforming experience.
