Blasphemous - 25 Minutes Of Gameplay
Positive: 21 out of 27
Mixed: 6 out of 27
Negative: 0 out of 27
Apr 1, 2020Blasphemous is a gothic horror masterpiece that can't be missed.
Sep 17, 2019Blasphemous takes a few well trodden genres and mashes them into something that is fun, rewarding and downright beautiful. Its story, themes and macabre nature will not suit everyone but I could not get enough of it. Its difficulty is near-perfect, not too hard but enough of a challenge to please most players. Metroidvania fans, Souls-like fans and gamers who want a challenge will revel in this games gorgeously crafted world. Its a brilliantly crafted experience that needs to be played.
Sep 30, 2019Blasphemous is one of the most interesting metroidvanias recently. It offers a great gameplay and exquisite visual presentation. A simple sound production and several technical errors can be annoying, but they do not prevent you from appreciating the great quality of this game.
Sep 9, 2019Blasphemous is a great mix between Dark Souls and Castlevania. what we loved about it the most is how welcoming it was to its sorrowful world, it is simple but well designed. The pace can be slow though, as the moment to moment gameplay is less engaging than Castlevania's tight game design.
Sep 20, 2019It’s probably one of the best looking indie games of the year, accompanied by incredibly effective notes of religious horror. More importantly, minus a few small gripes, it’s still a very enjoyable game to play through. Definitely one to sink into when the clocks go back in time for the dawn of All Hallows Eve.
Sep 16, 2019As it stands in its current form, I will say that if Blasphemous’ aesthetic interests you even a little, or if you’re a fan of metroidvania-style games, then it’s absolutely worth checking out in its current form. I will also say though that despite how good the performance is on the Switch version, there are bugs and animations/interactions that could use more tuning. Blasphemous in its current state is a strong entry in the genre, and definitely stands close to the top, but with further refinement, it could turn from an interesting title to a true must-play experience.
Sep 17, 2019Unfortunately the game is too bogged down with a high difficulty level that is more tedious than challenging, dragging the entire experience down into something I can hardly bring myself to play. Blasphemous is a beautiful game that I wish I could enjoy more, but the extremely high difficulty of combat and platforming simply does not mesh well with the amount of exploration and backtracking needed from a world as expansive as this one.

Jun 24, 2021This game is a masterwork action RPG/platformer metroid-whateveria. Despite all it's similarities to say Dark Souls or Castlevania itThis game is a masterwork action RPG/platformer metroid-whateveria. Despite all it's similarities to say Dark Souls or Castlevania it absolutely stands out and up on it's own merit as a deeply stylish, haunting world and narrative. PSA as well: If you have trouble with the controls, switch to the d-pad for movement. It makes all your inputs much more exacting and really helps you finesse say some of the more difficult trick platforming in the added Bloodstained content.
I triple recommend the game if you've ever had a brush with hardcore faith or Catholicism in your life. As an ex-catholic it felt sublimely cathartic to experience themes all too familiar with a new coat of paint, underscoring both the grotesquely but also grace and elegance of faith.
This game is perma-downloaded on my system and it has so much replayability that even after three runs I can absolutely see myself coming back on a rainy day.… Expand

- The sword play was satisfying
- Enjoyed the boss fights

50% metroidvania 50% soulslike, with a lore that really got me hooked in and searching for YouTube videos to explain it.
The overall experience is a 8/10 imo, it would've been a 9 but the platforming and backtranking can ruin the pace and fun of the game sometime.… Expand
Feb 6, 2020Started off loving this game but ended up stop playing after 13 hours.
The controls is the biggest issue,its sluggish. Movement is slow, iStarted off loving this game but ended up stop playing after 13 hours.
The controls is the biggest issue,its sluggish. Movement is slow, i think there is a bug when you jump and turn around to face an enemy the character freezes for 1 second and then BAM!!! Enemy hits you.
Its a hard game but not that hard,starts off fun then precedes to be repetitive .
The upgrade system is the most useless i have seen in any game,the only upgrade worth using is lunging with your sword.
Then the Miracles (Powers) does next to no damage and this takes about 2 seconds to power up.
Pros- Game looks stunning,lore is weird and creepy.
Cons- Horrid controls

Oct 20, 2021This is actually a fantastic game, but not on the underpowered switch. The switch version is virtually unplayable due to the input lag.This is actually a fantastic game, but not on the underpowered switch. The switch version is virtually unplayable due to the input lag. There’s a good half-second delay to everything you do, and in a game that demands as much precision as this one, that makes it unplayable. If you’re thinking about buying this version, be sure to try the demo first. I have a feeling they only added that just so you could see how bad it is on switch before buying; no other version of this game on other systems has a demo.… Expand
