Best of 2021: The most impressive audiovisual style

Today’s category is likely to provoke wild discussion, because evaluating the audiovisual side of video games is always a bit of a hassle. The objective scale may work in terms of technical processing, but in terms of artistic value, we are beginning to enter the waters of subjective feelings and interpretations.

In any case, there are plenty of candidates who deserve to be mentioned in today’s rankings this year, whether it’s retro Deathloop, the psychedelic The Artful Escape, or perhaps the technically well-crafted Resident Evil Village. But we could only choose three. Here you have them!

3rd place: Returnal

Returnal in a number of other game polls suffers a bit from the classic problem that it came out at the beginning of the year, so it is often forgotten. Not in our case! The original world, which invites you to explore, boasts a distinctive and completely unmistakable style that remains stuck in our brains. And by that we mean both the design of the enemy and the environment.

In addition, the visual show does not interfere with the gameplay and manages to communicate everything essential that the player needs in a clean and understandable way. Add to that the great work with licensed music, but also the dramatic use of the organ, which turns the duel with the main boss into something you will remember years later. You’re probably quite clear why Returnal is taking home the well-deserved bronze!

2. místo: Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is one of those rare games where everything went exactly where it should be. No wonder she received a full review in Pavel’s review.

Audiovisual is exactly one of those categories in which Ratchet can hardly be blamed. Color design is constantly throwing something new at you, so you can’t get bored for a moment. The music perfectly underlines the action on stage and at the same time refers to the previous episodes in the series, so you will feel at home. I wish more high-budget projects would get such precise processing!

1st place: Kenya: Bridge of Spirits

Kena: Bridge of Spirits

If we were to compare games to culinary delights, Kena would be a hot cup of cocoa with an extra dose of marshmallows on top. This is largely due to the audiovisual processing, which most of all resembles modern animated fairy tales for children.

There’s everything you’d expect: The animals, the heroes of the Disney movie, look cute, all accompanied by magical music that you enjoy playing outside, ideally during some meditation or yoga practice.

Kena just got us the way she looks and sounds. Maybe also because if we need something in the coming year, it’s peace and quiet. And a good cup of good cocoa.
