RIME Review (PS4)

Grey Box and Tequila Works has released RIME for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

The puzzle adventure game RIME released on May 26th and offers gamers an adventure like no other. The single-player title allows gamers to take on the role of a young boy named Enu who finds himself on a mysterious island. The boy's mysterious appearance on the Mediterranean island after a storm is full of secrets and it is up to you to uncover the truth.

RIME takes place in a huge, beautiful world that is fun to explore and experience. Gamers will come across wild animals and have the guidance of a fox as they make their way to a massive tower in the distance. Why does the young boy feel drawn to the tower and what secrets lie inside? That is the entire premise of RIME.

RIME allows gamers to explore the island at their own pace while they search every crevice for hidden items and secrets. In order to make your way through the world of RIME, players will have to solve intrinsic puzzles that involve sounds, lights, shadows, perspective, platforming and time manipulation. The puzzles are varied enough throughout RIME that they never get too repetitive or frustrating.

The most intriguing aspect of RIME is that it allows you to experience this new world through the eyes of a child. RIME had around 10 hours of gameplay full of hidden spaces and secrets to uncover. The game does have a high degree of replayability since you can venture through the world many times to retry challenges and find collectibles.

RIME has an immaculate soundtrack to accompany the game's fantastic visuals. I believe the developers spent a lot of time on these two components, because the narrative is wordless and depends heavily on visuals and music. The story slowly evolves as you progress and you soon learn how the boy became shipwrecked on the island. The controls in RIME are tight and responsive allowing for a more immersive gameplay experience.

In the end, RIME was a beautiful story that unfolded like a dream on consoles. RIME manages to draw players into its exquisite world with its visuals and music and keeps them there with its immersive gameplay. To learn more, visit the official RIME website.
