Available digitally through the PlayStation Store, and physically at GameStop/EB Games, Song of the Deep received a 7.5 from us and we said, “On the surface, everything about Merryn’s adventure is absolutely charming. The deeper you and Merryn go, the game loses its luster, but it’s still worth undertaking the journey if this style of adventure game sings to you. Just be aware it may not be a complete pleasure cruise.”
