Review: EA’s Tales of Kenzera: ZAU is a challenging, poignant Metroidvania

Tales of Kenzera: ZAU feels like a studio stretching its legs for the first time. Visually inventive, and full of great platforming, average combat and exploration lets it down.

  • Afrofuturism aesthetic makes for a unique setting
  • Challenging platforming
  • Enjoyable soundtrack
  • Average combat
  • Limited exploration
3 / 5
