The first EA Original to hit the scene, that being an indie title published and distributed by the giant publisher, was the charming Unravel. A game that kind of crept up on us and reminded us why we love indies. Today we bring you our review of the latest game released under the EA Originals banner - Fe. A meditative exploration of life, balance, and singing to other animals.
So then, how does it fare? Not that great.
Perhaps the main reason why Fe falls short of its ambition comes with the somewhat bland 3D platforming elements throughout. Reaching a higher platform usually happens one way only, with experimentation on the player’s part resulting in some nice visual motifs but not much else. On the flip side to that where Fe excels and feels like its own thing, comes with the use of sound to bond and interact with other animals and creatures. You get the feeling that Fe doesn’t want to hold your hand and instead let you absorb the game in full. But having the helpful navigation bird tied to singing without aiming at an animal or object, is strange.
