Legend of Kay Anniversary PS4 Review

This week we had the opportunity to take a look at Legend of Kay Anniversary edition for the PS4. The game was released only July 28th 2015, merely 10 years after its release for the PlayStation 2. The game had some significant improvements such as high-resolution textures, a new interface with 60 FPS, and improved polygonal models as well. Needless to say the game actually was pretty good.

In this action-adventure you start out on Yenching, a peaceful island where cats, rabbits, frogs and pandas all lived in harmony and peace. Until one day Gorillas and Mice invade the island and take over and run a harsh dictatorship. This is where Kay, a cat who belonged to a tribe on the island and studies martial arts, steps in and is determined to defeat the dictatorship instilled by the invaders.

During the early stages of the game progress is rather slow as you become familiar with the actions by going through some training as well as being introduced to most of the characters. The game does pick up pace as you move past the early stages and explore forests, swamps and dungeons, while trying to complete the games primary and secondary missions. Make sure you don’t skip out on some of the minigames while playing through, those are some of the best parts and some are actually pretty hard.

The combat system is alright, it’s fairly easy to use and the combos aren’t that hard to perform, but this was expected before we even turned the game on. While trying to “combo”  within the game you must press Triangle, this will allow you to move quickly between targets and can even be used to reach higher platforms by hitting targets and moving in midair. It almost reminded us of the Batman Arkham city combat how you can move from target to target quickly as you perform your combos.

Legend of Kay has a good balance between exploration/action and the controls felt natural and had some good movement. The story is sub-par, it didn’t really grab us and have us dying to find out what’s next and wasn’t all that original either. Despite being 10 years old the remastered version did look good (a lot better than Godzilla which was just released) but you can still tell the game is dated by the way the characters talk and move within the game.

For our rating, we will go with a 6.4/10 yes a 6.4..
