    Hollow Knight is the metroidvania you are looking for: epic, challenging, clever and so wide. Some souls-like mechanics perfectly fit in this beautiful game.

    Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition shines bright, which is ironic considering its solemn presentation and challenging gameplay. Offering a plethora of collectibles and content to explore as well as unrelenting confrontations, the game delivers a sensational, mysterious journey which will undoubtedly test your platforming skills.

    Visually stunning, mechanically rewarding – Hollow Knight is a game that works on just about every level. It presents challenge, but always fairly, with plentiful options to explore new pathways. [Issue#155, p.92]

    The question of how important originality is to any new game is largely a question of personal taste, but Hollow Knight offers some compelling mitigation for its lack of innovation: the gorgeous presentation and the insanely low asking price. There’s no question that Hollow Knight is hugely enjoyable and great value for money. But if its gameplay had been as imaginative as its visuals it could have been a genuine classic.

    Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition shakes up the MetroidVania space with excellent worldbuilding and the challenge to match. Though the game does not hold your hand, those willing to face the world of Hallownest will find a game with a lot of “Soul.”

Traversing and exploring HK map is a treat, each district is distinct in their own ways and the 2d environments look hand crafted with such artistry. Searching every book and cranny for collectibles and upgrades is rewarding more then annoying. Not much direction on your journey and there will be lots of back tracking which can sometimes be tedious. Upgrading your knight and finding charms to make you stronger can be challenging but rewarding. Enemies are abundant and difficult. Bosses are each unique and challenging, just like in bloodborne you will die a lot and is advantageous to learn got enemies moves. Hollow Knight is a beautifully dreary game with lots of character. Took me around 30 hours to finish the game with 80% completion. Expand
