Hippo Penny, folks! It's your pal here, back with another review that's sure to make you laugh, cry, and maybe even roll your eyes (in a good way... or not).

Today, I'm tackling the beautiful Child of Light, a JRPG that has captured the hearts of many, including yours truly. Now, before we get into the nitty-gritty, let me just say that I've got some serious props for Gamereactor Denmark, who gave this game a perfect score. I mean, who wouldn't want to give 100% to something as stunningly lovely as Child of Light?

But enough about those Danish folks (no offense, guys!). Let's get down to business and see what the rest of the critics have to say.

First off, DarkStation is basically begging you to play this game. Like, come on, go buy it now! And I can see why - the world is just so... whimsical. You know, like a fairy tale come true (which, coincidentally, is exactly what Child of Light is).

PSX Extreme is all about balance and pacing in this review, saying that the game has "superior" balancing and pacing. Now, I'm not sure what's superior about it (I mean, I think I do), but hey, who am I to argue with experts?

Pelit (Finland) just gives it a solid thumbs up, saying it looks "pretty nice" and plays "pretty nice too." Yeah, no kidding - this game is like looking at a work of art (which, again, it kinda is).

Games Master UK gives Child of Light an 81%, calling it "a beautiful and heartfelt testament to the JRPG formula." Um, yeah... because JRPGs are all about being heartwarming and pretty.

And then there's Eurogamer, who loves this game almost as much as they love using big words. They say it's a "wonderfully realised venture into unfamiliar territory" - basically, they're saying it's like discovering a hidden treasure chest of JRPG goodness (which, let's be real, is exactly what happens when you play Child of Light).

And finally, we have Edge Magazine, who... well, actually, they kind of hate this game. They say it "feels oddly empty," which, honestly, doesn't even make sense - there are like, so many characters and things to do! Maybe they just didn't understand the art of JRPGing?

Anyway, that's my review in a nutshell (or rather, a hippo shell). Child of Light is an amazing game that will capture your heart, your imagination, and maybe even make you laugh (if you're as goofy as me).

So go ahead, give it a try - I promise you won't regret it!
