Great 100%

Great 100%

Hollow Knight is the game that changed my view of videogames as something much more than one single piece of entertainment.

The game is incredible in the majority of its aspects:

The gameplay is very precise and smooth;
The visuals are astounding;
The difficulty is very balanced and interesting;
The sound design and soundtrack are awesome and beautiful.
