This Is Not A Review: My Beautiful Paper Smile

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: My Beautiful Paper Smile, developed by Two Star Games and published by V Publishing.


Stela Review

Distant Encounter Of A Third Kind

HIGH Great integration of 3D cinematography in a 2D game.

LOW A horrendous final section.

WTF The Dutch translation is horrible.
