I think the most impressive thing I can say about Celeste is that out of it and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, I prefer Celeste. It is my favourite 2D platformer and (I worked this out) my eleventh favourite game of all time.

I feel a need to do a big Celeste post somewhere else...

Bashed out the Mirror Temple last night and I'm about to settle into the next chapter once I've had a jaunt around the forum.

I did like that level - more so than the windy mess prior - but I'm still yet to be properly blown away like you guys beyond being very impressed by how smooth the platforming feels. More to come.

EDIT: Beaten Chapter 6. Absolute cracker. I got a little bit in to Chapter 7 but I'm leaving the rest till tomorrow. Top marks. Thumbs Up!

I can't say I'm too surprised to learn it doesn't live up to the insane hype it received online, including around these parts. I am very glad you're enjoying it though.

We definitely didn't help, did we? Embarrassed That said, those two levels are, to my mind, the weakest the game has. Glad you're enjoying it, anyhow.

The last couple of levels were brilliant, and I'm keen to go and tackle some of the trickier stuff down the line, but I'm done for the time being.

I find it tricky to get overwhelmingly hyped about a platformer, hence why I've been a bit reserved on it compared to most of the gang here, but it's an easy 9/10 for me thanks to the fluidity of the platforming, the heartwarming story and banging tunes. Thumbs Up!

So am I, normally! 2D platformers anyway. But I'm glad you liked it, Jay - that's the important thing. Thumbs Up!

The greatest achievement of Celeste is the near perfect marriage of narrative theme to gameplay - the only other game I can really think of that achieves similar is Papers Please.
