Celeste review

As a person that plays many video games I can confirm this game really has stood out to me. For me what determines a game to be great is if the game is meaningful and quite often has good graphics. Celeste’s story is about a girl named Madeline who is struggling with depression and her past troubles that has overcome her problems and has learned how to deal with it. Overall I think Celeste is a great game the only reason that I have rated it 10+ was I thought that children under the age of 10 maybe wouldn’t understand the meaning well as it can be complex to learn but if your child would like to play I see nothing wrong about the game.
