Celeste Switch Gameplay - First 9 Minutes
Autoplay On Off
Feb 6, 2018Celeste’s optimism is refreshing, especially since it comes from within. It’s a call-and-response, a game that says Keep going! and waits for your next button press as confirmation, I will! You’re learning! and with every death, every obstacle stumbled against and overcome, you say I am! It’s a marriage of theme and mechanics so pure, so confident. And one hell of a platformer, too.
Jan 31, 2018Celeste is special, because not only does it serve up a delight in precise platforming and environmental puzzle-solving, it also tells an emotional story of a girl trying to overcome her depression. While there are times where it feels like the mountain drains you of your will, it’s important to never stop pushing.
Games Master UKFeb 22, 2018An expertly designed, tough-as-nails platformer that rarely stumbles on its march to the summit. [March 2018, p.79]

Feb 20, 2018“They cannot be serious!” became my mantra with Celeste. I like a steep challenge, but this is way too much. While the retro platformer shows off some interesting ideas the fun largely depends on your capacity for suffering as well as patience. This is one of the hardest games out there. They cannot be serious.

One of the best games I've played to date. First off, the visuals and music are so polished and beautiful. I just want every screen of this game as my background (the backgrounds are incredibly detailed and help make the game feel very polished) and I could listen to this music for hours. I mean, each level has it's own death transition! That should give you a taste of how much love the developers put into this game. The dialogue is incredibly charming and tells a story about complicated feelings so elegantly and with so much honesty (I mean, you can feel it through the dialogue). The gameplay is incredibly fluid and its difficulty curve is perfect (However, I am a platformer afficiando, so take that with a grain of salt). I mean, seriously. Just jumping around and dashing in an empty space feels amazing, and there are so many collectibles to find using these amazing controls! You can choose to play on assist mode, or complete the game 100% and have an outstanding time no matter what. This game simply gets everything right: from skippable cutscenes to counters that help see what you missed in a level. The B-sides are just as fun as the main story and there's secrets hiding in every corner. No secret makes you want to use a walkthrough; they are well-hidden, but also well telegraphed with fun little mini-challenges in them. There are so many cool, inventive mechanics to come across while traversing through in this game... and the level design... Oh, the level design! It's absolutely perfect. This game is incredible and a great start if you want to start playing hardcore platformers.… Expand

I like hard games; dark souls, hotline miami and hollow knight come to my mind. But I've never really could get into a hard platformer. Super meat boy is a great game, yes. But I didn't felt motivated to keep playing despite dying over and over.
Then, it came this game. In the first level I died like 300 times (I like hard games, but I'm not good at them). But the difficulty curve, how it adds new challenges as it goes on, how it teaches you a new mechanic and then plays with it, changing it until it becomes something completely new; there's where the brilliance of this game resides.
This game pushed me to the edge of my skills, teaching me in every step, making me improve. That's why it's the best platformer I have ever played. And if you add the beautiful story, the cute visuals and the immersing music, you have a work of art right there.… Expand

It has TONS of content - I've played for 33 hours by now and still am only through about 2/3 of the game. A word of warning though - after the first third, it gets really, really tough.
I wanted to criticize some elements like blocks that make you bounce in somewhat unpredictable ways and the fact that some mechanics aren't introduced to the player but you'll most likely have to see in a video on Youtube or something but... in the end... playing it is just so much fun.
The only thing I don't forgive is the awful story about a whiny brat and the occasionally appearing douchy dude. In my life, I've met a number of people actually struggling with psychological issues (myself included - struggling, not having met myself...) as well as shallow, whiny ones who wallow in self pity while not recognizing all the things "fate" (or chance - whatever) simply handed to them. And even though there isn't enough context to truly judge whether Madeline is one or the other, the way she expresses herself and behaves makes it seem like she belongs in the latter category. Which is why I started skipping cut scenes about halfway through.
Still... overall... controls are tight, challenges very varied (and sometimes feel more like a combination of puzzle game and platformer), art and music are fantastic and it's obviously incredibly addictive if you enjoy platforming challenges.… Expand
