Whispering Willows review

The Good:
  • Poignant story of human foibles spanning centuries and generations
  • Supernatural aspect is well-integrated into the plot
  • Ability to swap between human and spirit forms to solve quests
  • Excellent writing
  • Apt soundtrack
  • Attractive art
The Bad:
  • Few and often banal quests with dull, tiresome gameplay
  • hours of avoidable backtracking
  • Some areas are confusing due to repeated use of same art
  • Long stretches where nothing noteworthy happens
  • No sense of tension or peril

Our Verdict:

Whispering Willows has an engaging story and superlative production quality, but fails to build on its strengths, eventually becoming an exercise in drudgery due to its insipid quests and irritating game design.
