    Sundered takes the indie, Metroidvania genre to new heights while showing just how good these types of experiences can be. Great gameplay could have carried this game far enough, but Thunder Lotus once again went for hand drawn art and the result is truly remarkable.

    If you’re looking for a Metroidvania-style slash-fest that won’t make your eyes weary, you’ve gotta check out Sundered.

    Sundered is a great metroid-vania. It doesn´t innovate a classic gameplay formula, but with its visual, atmosphere and technical quality, it can catch and hold you. [Issue#277]

    With its smooth combat, rewarding exploration, and pulse-pounding battles, Sundered is worth a look from fans of Metroid and Castlevania. Though technical issues muddled my enjoyment and the punishing difficulty can lead to fits of frustration, Sundered brings an exciting and noteworthy experience to a crowded genre.

    Sundered is beautiful, tense, and frustrating enough to make you want to throw your controller. If you can make your way through it’s overwhelming combat encounters, you’ll find a platformer that’s well worth the madness.

    Solid mix of Metroidvania and roguelike with epic boss battles, but often very conservative and sometimes slow-moving.

    A game with interesting ideas that is let down by frustrating, repetitive gameplay.

    This games art is amazing to look at, hand drawn aesthetics look awesome. When I read that the levels where going to be procedurally createdThis games art is amazing to look at, hand drawn aesthetics look awesome. When I read that the levels where going to be procedurally created I was definitely skeptical but honestly it adds more of a challenge. The waves of baddies that storm onto to screen and attack you can get intense, but it keeps the platforming interesting. I have only played a few hours and in those hours I was put my gaming skills to the test, I am playing on normal and it is pretty brutal. The only way to upgrade your skills via skill tree is to collect orbs from dead baddies and once you die you can spend those orbs to upgrade your skills. So in a way you get rewarded for dieing because you become stronger. Only thing missing is a heavy metal sound track. All in all pretty fun game, you should check it out. Im playing on PC runs really smooth. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. El juego posee un apartado gráfico y sonoro bellísimo junto a unos combates sencillos.
    La dinámica de la horda es bastante interesante y aporta variedad al juego.
    Comienza con buen pies para luego ir torciéndose : Los combates pasan a ser un caos en el que golpeas y esquivas sin apreciar mucho los ataques.
    La difcultad de este juego radica en tirar legiones de esbirros a la cara y en cuanto a los jefes los primeros tienen mecánicas divertidas pero luego pasan a ser tediosos y aburridos de hacer.
    He jugado con la ventaja de que los jefes son más difíciles y la he acabado quitando por puro aburrimiento y ganas de acabar.
    El mapa de la catedral es frustrante y muchas muertes seran porque caes al vacío, se siente injusto en gran parte de las ocasiones.
    El final siguiendo el camino de destruir las esquirlas es bastante soso y decepcionante.
    En conclusión, los gráficos no son todo

    D'habitude, nous commençons par la phrase rituelle "la daube indé du jour est évidemment un étron en 4, 16 ou éventuellement 256 couleursD'habitude, nous commençons par la phrase rituelle "la daube indé du jour est évidemment un étron en 4, 16 ou éventuellement 256 couleurs -mais pas plus" mais une fois n'est pas coutume, nous ferons un peu de publicité (gratuite).

    En effet, nous tenons à remercier l'Epic Game Store pour filer régulièrement autant d'étrons de ce (mauvais) genre -comme Sundered- et cela gratuitement ! de quoi "apprécier" ainsi à leur juste sous-valeur tous ces étrons bricolés par les merveilleux **** développeurs indépendants !

    Et quelle "fraîcheur" encore une fois ici... bah tiens, un jeu de plate-formes (oh dis donc !) en 2D bien sûr et... 256 couleurs -à vue de nez. Avec des ennemis, des tas d'ennemis, des boss (oh la la !) et une difficulté très élevée afin de recommencer souvent (pour les "vrais" qui ont trop de temps à perdre sur des merdes de cet acabit !).

    Donc voilà, inutile d'en rajouter : on ne tire pas (davantage) sur une ambulance, une épave et un tel sous-produit boulotté par quelques stagiaires pas doués (une équipe d'autistes peut-être, qui sait ?). On fait comme d'habitude, on tire la chasse. Et on remercie l'EGS en attendant le "prochain".
