Alright 80%

I would say that this game is my perfect 'difficulty' for exploration in a metroidvania. There were quite a lot of times where I hit dead ends but the beautiful art always left an impression reminding me where secrets could be. There are a couple of problems with the game that culminate at the ending with a large difficulty spike into a different genre, which I can't imagine many people have completed without cheesing with the help of some charm...

I loved this game very much. The game pulls off the metroidvania genre so well. I loved the way the story was fed to the player.

Hands down one of the best metroidvania's I've ever played! The art style is amazing, the atmosphere is both cute and creepy, combat is tight and responsive and story is souls-like, which is perfectly done.

Hollow knight succeeded to beat Ori in my heart. It is the best game I played these last years. It starts quit slowly but little but little I was astonished by the gameplay, the animation and how the game started to become beautiful. Before buying I thought I would not like the arts that much but the animation looked great on the trailer so I tried it. I ended up to love the art, the music, the gameplay, the atmosphere. The first negative point... Read More
