RiME 

 

I am grateful to Team Grey Box for sending Family Friendly Gaming a couple of codes for RiME. We gave one away. We also had a reader request come in for a review of RiME. This game is meant to be an emotional journey of dealing with the loss of a loved one. SPOILER ALERT! A father loses his son out to sea, and the spirit of the little boy will not move on until his father forgives himself.

Most of RiME I had no clue what was going on. I am still not sure about quite a bit of this game. Why do I have to go through all of these puzzles to help the father? If I am a ghost, how come I can not go through objects? If I am a ghost why can't I just fly over obstacles? If you play RiME, and can make it to the ending then you will probably wonder these things too.

RiME is maddeningly frustrating and difficult. Do not expect this game to help you. I mean that. I mean it in any way. RiME expects players to figure it out. That is everything in this video game. If you are stuck in RiME, then you are stuck. I had to consult game guides over and over again in RiME. So many solutions to these puzzles are too vague. Very few things in RiME made much sense to me.

RiME has vibrant colors, and nice music. The graphics are neat too. The breezes and fox creature are neat. There is violent content and peril in RiME. The controls in RiME are a bit stiff and the boy we play has the strangest run I have ever seen. Like there is something misaligned in his hip region. Those that worship at the altar of political correctness will appreciate non-white characters in RiME.

The loading screens in RiME are long. There is no talking in RiME. I will warn you that RiME can generate a wealth of emotions. I felt anger, rage, frustration, aggravation, irritation, and futility at trying to solve the puzzles. I found no tips or hints in the game when I was stuck. I quit playing games when I can't figure them out. Since this was a review I used a game guide to help me. Otherwise I would not have played this game beyond the first place I got stuck.
