Review: Oure (PlayStation 4)

As a unique child born with the powers of the ancient dragons, your parents cast you from the stricken surface into the land above the skies.

Pros:

  • Charming graphics.
  • 2.08gb download size.
  • Platinum trophy.
  • Controller options- Invert axis and sensitivity slider.
  • Gallery area.
  • Beginning tutorial with ongoing pop-ups.
  • Autosaves regularly.
  • Massive open world.
  • Exploration gameplay with puzzle/platform areas.
  • Transform from a little girl into a Dagon!
  • Tatoo on your Dragon is your stamina bar. You use stamina by flying up or down and using the boost.
  • Replenish stamina by flying through the clouds.
  • Blue orbs- 100s of them to collect around the world.
  • Nothing is really explained in great detail so you can interpret the experience.
  • Red orbs are rarer but once collected increase your pick up the radius of orbs.
  • Hidden collectibles contain lore excerpts.
  • Land on bright squares usually on platforms to turn back into a human.
  • An orchestral soundtrack that is both chilled and impactful.
  • Dragon- You can roll, fly up or down and do circling. Circling is where once you have done a circle you reveal orb locations for a short time.
  • Chilled out gameplay.
  • A lot of fun.
  • Full of wonder and adventure.
  • Spend blue orbs in terminals to trigger puzzles or open gates or interact with the world.
  • Can upgrade your abilities like circling to show other orbs.
  • Puzzle variety for both Dragon and human puzzles.
  • Gallery images unlock after you collect certain orbs from certain places and fill the square.
  • Clouds also form cave and tunnel systems.
  • No loading once in the game.
  • Collectible counter.

Cons:

  • Controls are really hard to grasp at first.
  • Camera sometimes has a mind of its own.
  • Hard to see/judge platforms as the game does a lot of darkness.
  • Orbs don’t stay up that long at all in the beginning.
  • Can have moments of feeling lost or stuck.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
