  • While its retro looks and funky gameplay style are unique there's not much meat here

    Considering the fact that I love retro throwbacks AND games that have something unusual or creative about the way they play, the character-possessing run-n-gun-ish platforming of Avenging Spirit would seem to be a great fit for me. I love the challenge of understanding which enemy types are the best to possess and why under what circumstances, and I love the “this is what I’ve got, and I’m going to have to make it work” nature of how much of the game is played where you can’t control when you’re going to need to possess someone new. All that said, there’s something about the general construction of the levels and many of their elements which doesn’t match up to the quality of the idea itself so the play experience comes out as undoubtedly novel but not necessarily compelling for any length of time. If you’re game for something that simply does things its own way this is a great title to give a look as it undoubtedly forges its own path, just be warned that there’s an unpolished quality to the experience that is a bit of a letdown.
