  • Player The Messenger when Game Pass PC released. I had heard good things. I couldn't get past the gameplay, too simple NES platforming. I already played NES games in the time and frankly most were crap compared to today's games. I fail to see the point in this fake nostalgia movement. Platformers are good, and a bit of retro graphics is nice, but a stiff, ugly looking jumping game like that one? I'd rather play Ori or any other modern platformer.
