Review: Kena: Bridge of Spirits is a PS2 throwback, for better and worse

Excellent visuals elevate an inoffensive and generic action-adventure

Creative director
Mike Grier
Key Credits
Hunter Schmidt (Animation director)

Kena: Bridge of Spirits is a completely inoffensive, if somewhat bland adventure that will mildly entertain for the duration of its runtime, but won’t live long in the memory.

  • Stunning cutscenes
  • Enjoyable, if simple combat
  • The Rot
  • Narrative sentimentality doesn’t land.
  • Incredibly dated game design
3 / 5
Version tested
PlayStation 5
