    Quite a god game in all regards. Not quite as good as the main entries in the series, but the game looks good and plays well. Hours of fun, highly recommended.

    While it does some things well, namely its exploring and parts of its combat, almost everything seems like the “lite” version of what they should be.

    It has its moments. But there are too few and they are not spectacular enough. The one-dimensional action seems even more inappropriate on the big screen. It just is not interesting.

    Not a vast improvement over the Vita version, but it plays better on the PC and looks a little crisper too. Deluxe oder not, Blackgate is a fairly solid metroidvania experience that never reaches its full potential.
