so many people on here have this and Klonoa 2 in their top 5 that I was too curious. I had played this when I was younger and liked it a whole lot, but perfect top 5 game?

Yeah actually. Turns out the consensus on things can be totally correct!

Klonoa is a smart, fun, creative and clever platformer that has genuine poignancy and themes that resonate in ways most other platformers don't bother to do, or modern ones that overdo it to the point of seeming disingenious.

Klonoa is the real fucking deal. It's borderline perfect, a must play for platformer fans but it will spoil you on the genre, because when one doesn't have the same passion Klonoa does you'll just come back to replay it again.
