Easy Allies

8.5 / 10
More than a tribute to a single retro franchise, The Messenger mixes amazing action platforming with the unique ability to jump between 8-bit and 16-bit worlds.

The Messenger is a terrific throwback to action platformers like Ninja Gaiden with welcome twists. While a mid-game identity crisis detracts from the experience, it's still an adventure worth taking

When you're fully geared up and The Messenger is hitting you with brand new stages and challenges that you haven't seen before, The Messenger is an amazing, must-play experience. Taken as a whole, it's brought down only by fetch quests that make The Messenger last several hours longer than it feels like it should.
