The Redress of Mira is the latest first-person/third-person journey from eastasiasoft and Tonguç Bodur to make its way to PlayStation. We previously got others on PlayStation 5, such as the surreal journey Lucid Cycle, narrative-driven Drizzlepath: Déjà vu, soul-searching journey The Dead Tree of Ranchiuna, and story-driven medieval quest The Soul Orb. For The Redress of Mira, you’ll be playing as the titular character, who is in search of inner peace. You’ll explore the medieval-inspired locations during the day as you try to overcome the dark nightmares that haunt Mira at night. There are magical crystal barriers that you need to break that will show you some scenes that present to you the game’s story.
You’ll control Mira with the left analog stick as you look around with the right one. You can run by pressing and holding down the L1 button or can toggle run by pressing in on the left analog stick. You can fire with your staff with the R2 button as long as you have enough mana. To absorb mana, press the L2 button. You can interact with objects with the Square button. The game changes from a first-person perspective to a third-person perspective at various times, such as when climbing ladders or pushing blocks.
While there are some action segments, the overall focus of The Redress of Mira is on first-person exploration and lite puzzle solving. These include pushing down a tree to use as a platform to reach higher ground, pulling a lever to move a giant Cerberus statue, pushing a huge heavy block so that you can climb on top of it to reach some plants that you can then use to climb, pulling levers to complete images, or interacting with some gargoyle statues in the right order so that you can open a door.
The Redress of Mira has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy. The list includes 6 Bronze trophies, 10 Silver trophies, and 7 Gold trophies. Most of those trophies have the same objective and just count up, so you’ll have to “Shoo away the X pack of crows” during your journey. There are also two endings to experience during your trophy run. If you’re having trouble, you could always go into the settings menu and activate God Mode. Since the trophies are missable, you might want to use this The Redress of Mira Trophy Guide to help you along the way.
While I’ve enjoyed other releases from indie Tonguç Bodur, this one just didn’t click with me. The story didn’t manage to grab my attention, the switch from first-person to third-person didn’t add anything, and Mira’s 3D model moves in a weird way while climbing around. The Redress of Mira is available as a Cross-Buy title, so your $9.99 purchase will give you access to both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost.
This The Redress of Mira Review is based on a PlayStation 5 copy provided by eastasiasoft.
