Dec 14, 2020Morbid follows the Dark Souls formula pretty closely despite it having a retro charm, but the boss fights are an undeniable highlight of the game. Disturbing bouts of danger that will snuff your flame out with a single lucky blow, these encounters boast an incredible art direction, fascinating gameplay quirks, and a challenge that’ll leave your controller moist with hand sweat.
Dec 21, 2020Morbid: The Seven Acolytes is an indie adventure full of ambitions… too many ambitions! Despite the Bloodborne-style inspirations, the game is full of personality, a clear reflection of an extremely passionate vision, with very strong artworks and sound design, but everything else is simply pretty weak. The low difficulty, boss fights aside, along with a very basic gameplay devoid of any challenge, hinders what could have been something truly interesting.
Jan 12, 2021Morbid: The Seven Acolytes could have been a highly enjoyable foray into the 2D side of Souls-like action. It features a compelling world, presented through stylish pixel art and good sound design, and really nails the highly entertaining bits of lore sprinkled throughout the world to make it come alive. However, some rather important missteps with the combat make the experience far too toothless, annulling the sense of fast-paced action and dramatically lowering stakes upon defeat. Rather than rising to the level of its loft inspiration, it instead feels buried alive, flatlining into a state of rigor mortis due to its plodding combat.

Played 8 hours now. Somehow the playstyle reminds me on Salt and Sactuary. Good Bosses and MiniBosses, never felt unfair. Progress-System is minimalistic but works fine. Unfortunately No Maps, but I think this is intentionally chosen so. All in all a great one, when you Like those Kind of Games.… Expand

Graphics & Presentation: 8
This is a pixel art style game so there of much graphics to talk about, however, the art style of the environment is intriguing and very atmospheric. The enemies are very well-designed Lovecraftian monsters.
Sound Effects, Voice & Music: 7
The sound effects and music are fitting for the dark theme. There is no voice.
The world of Morbid has very intriguing lore I felt compelled to read and take in. The story is said in a very Souls-like fashion through lore tabs earned through exploration and combat.
Combat and exploration is exquisite. Combat is challenging but fair. The RPG elements and weapon unlocks make the game more fun and engaging.
Exceptionally well balanced game with minimum load times even on the base PS4.
Morbid: The Seven Acolytes is an exceptional indie souls-like that manages to find the perfect balance between challenging, fair and fun gameplay with intriguing story and presentation. I highly recommend it to both fans of Souls-likes and casual players alike.… Expand
