Hades has all the ingredients of an unforgettable indie masterpiece. It's all crafted so well on a technical scale too, and is without a doubt one of the most refined and well-designed action games out there. Hades is an engrossing Greek mythology tale gradually told throughout each escape attempt through the underworld. People have said this is one game that even players who hate roguelikes could get into, and now that I've been playing it for myself I know they were right, partly thanks to an optional accessibility feature that makes dying less stressful. Hades is one roguelike I'll always be happy to do another run at...or two, or ten. It's an endlessly replayable addiction.… Expand

Dec 28, 2021An amazing game that won me totally over. It is an action RPG / rouge-like game. You are playing Zagreus who is the son of Hades the Greek godAn amazing game that won me totally over. It is an action RPG / rouge-like game. You are playing Zagreus who is the son of Hades the Greek god of the underworld. Zagreus tries to escape his fathers realm. He is supported by his mother Nyx who even informed the other Greek gods that will help him. However there is far more to the story than it seems at first. You will discover secrets, reveals, twists and know your family, friends, acquaintances and other gods better. I must praise the characters and writing. The Greek legends are full of conflicts between the gods and those are all related to each other. This is transferred well into the game. They are like a family with a lot of problems. The game even won the literary Hugo Award to give you some perspective how good it is. For me this was amazing and I continued even after obtaining the platinum trophy to see the outcomes of some stories. It is well written, enjoyable and gives you always something to kept your interest. The gameplay is like I said a rouge-like RPG. You start each escape run with no abilities and advance through the rooms of the underworld. Each room has rewards like abilities, benefits, items or currencies. Sometimes you can chose between options. This was something I was worried about but it is not the weakness I thought. It is a true strength. In approx 100 runs I never encounter a truly weak set up. I discovered instead some amazing abilities, combinations and different options. Even some abilities I avoided first were good, some even worth reversing my opinion. For example: My least liked weapon became my favorite and the weapon I thought was best became my least used (The game has an interesting system in teasing you to chose different weapons). I admit that I use some abilities or better said set up more often but the different set ups keep it fresh. The next strength are the things you can unlock. There are so many helpful things. Be it new weapons, helpful rooms, appearing treasures, cosmetic set ups, abilities and bonuses. You always have new stuff to do or unlock. Rarely ever have I encounter a game that succeeds in keeping everything this fresh and enjoyable. Then there is the graphic. The art style is excellent and I like the hand draw graphics. For games like this I would always buy an artbook. The music is even better. You will encounter many awesome tracks and there are 2 characters who maybe give you some of the best songs in the game. To round up this experience I did not encounter a single serious bug or glitch. Overall this is my favorite game of the year and deserves my full praise. Never have I encountered a game that keeps being this refreshing from start to finish. Be it the story or gameplay everything is excellent and well thought out. Even the difficulty is correctly balanced as god mode gives you more resistance with each death until you don't die easily. A well thought out system. An easy 10/10 for me.… Expand

This one is pretty much perfect for what it wanna do, with a different ways to approach a run and an interesting story, something that is often forgotten in these kind of games. One thing that this game lacks is the real synergies party that could have been, but overall is a solid game and one of my favorites of the last years and I'm gonna keep enjoying this game for a long time.… Expand
