Easy Allies
by Michael Damiani
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”
IGN

8 / 10
“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.”
