    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.”

    Fantastic, wonderful adventure. 2d platformer which is strongly connected with Dark Souls spirit and weird bugs world. Amazing experience.

The graphics do not have enough variety, soundtrack forgettable, not much fun. Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams is way better than this and cheaper at the moment. Platform games have had some great entries over the years. Mario, Sonic and Rayman are all better by miles. I have to question the scores on these reviews. This game is just hugely out classed in its genre by old and new games. I just don't thiink there is a reason to buy this game unless you are really in to platformers and have exhausted your other options. It is just completely uninspiring and boring. I gave it 1 for the nice controls but responsive controls won't make me play a game that isn't fun. Expand
