Kena: Bridge of Spirits

I started this game today and so far I like it a lot. Runs well on PS5. My only beef is the 24 fps cutscenes are kind of stuttery. If you like action/adventure games with some Pixar vibes, you’ll probably like this one.

Pretty good, fun and cute game, tried the “torrent demo”. It is a bit stuttery on PC as well, but that could be my old setup. At least the cutscenes are not locked.

The gameplay itself on PS5 isn’t stuttery at all, just the cinematic cutscenes. I played a few hours today. It’s a good time! Gets better as you get new abilities and weapons.

I forgot I was playing this sort of and started it again. The cutscenes aren’t quite as bad now so maybe they patched it. The boss fights are getting really fun on hard mode. Decent challenge!

The 30 FPS cutscenes were sad.

I finally got around to beating this one. Took about 10 hours, which isn’t bad for $30 MSRP.

Pros:

  • Very pretty.
  • Good sound and music.
  • Surprisingly fun, yet simple combat - especially the boss fights.
  • A lot of boss fights, and again, they were a lot of fun and a decent challenge.
  • The combat abilities you get make for some fun combinations.

Cons:

  • The story was pretty shallow and basically the equivalent of bad anime filler. It seemed like wasted potential because the world seemed like it had potential.
  • None of the characters were particularly likeable or developed. The main character seemed cool and I am hoping if they make another one it will be more about her.
  • The platforming and puzzles were way too basic compared to how good the combat was.
  • The skill tree was pretty simple.
  • 30 FPS (if that) cutscenes are the worst; at least the game engine cutscenes were good.

I’d say 6/10 overall. I had fun playing it because of the pros but I wouldn’t play it again because of the cons. If they made a sequel I would play it.

I really want to buy this but you kinda made it sound like the game is not worth the time or money haha
