Klonoa: Door to Phantomile review
Exceptional
by XV

I didn't know anything about Klonoa before I played Door to Phantomile, but it sure was a great surprise. I enjoyed my time so much even when is roughly 5 hours long, it's kind of easy but has some difficulty spikes here and there that maintains you well entertained, the platforming is very good and simple, you don't have powerups so it's only you and the gameplay but there is a lot of versatility to Klonoa's movements that keep things fresh, even by the last level. Aside from the platforming, there are 2 other things that make this an amazing game, one is the music which is gorgeous and adds a lot of depth to the dreamy mood of the game, and second is the story, I didn't know that by the end I will be so moved by the characters and everything, also the writing is very good and charming, even the "voice acting" which is very similar to Banjo Kazooie (I know that Banjo came after but is just for reference) has a lot of heart, it's like a grandma fairytale but with some stakes. I recommend Klonoa Door to Phantomile to anybody, is a very fast and enjoyable ride that can give you more than you think.
