Hippo Penny Game Reviews

Outstanding Experience
Hippo Penny! It's your boy, back with a review that's gonna make you wanna shout it from the rooftops - or at least, scroll down and read what I have to say about this remade masterpiece, Riven!

Now, before we dive in, let me just say that I'm no stranger to poking fun at myself. After all, who needs self-seriousness when you can have Hippo Penny's brand of humor? So, bear with me as I tackle the critics and give you my take on this puzzle game.

First off, let's get the easy ones out of the way - or should I say, the high-flying ones? GamingTrend gave Riven a perfect 100! That's right, folks, they're talking about a "majestic piece of art" that will blow your mind (and not just because it's from 1997). Try Hard Guides and PCGamesN also chimed in with their own 90s - praise for the game. And don't even get me started on Gamer Escape, who said Riven is an "unforgettable ride." I mean, what more can you ask for?

Now, let's talk about the ones that didn't quite reach the same heights (pun intended). God is a Geek gave it an 80, saying while it was difficult, Cyan Worlds did a great job remaking this classic. And Shacknews? Same score, same praise - beautiful game, beautiful upgrade. The only one who didn't quite join the party was The New York Times with their 75. Sorry, NYT, but your three-year-old video card is just gonna have to step up its graphics game.

All joking aside (for now), Riven's remake is a true masterpiece that deserves all the praise it's gotten. It's like stepping into another world - and not just because of the mind-bending puzzles! Cyan Worlds really outdid themselves bringing this classic back to life in 2024. So, if you're a fan of deep puzzles, exploration, or just wanna experience something new, Riven is definitely worth your time.

That's it for now, folks! Hippo Penny signing off - see you next review!
