    Morbid: The Seven Acolytes is a Horrorpunk Action RPG filled with Lovecraftian horrors and Cronenbergian gore, making it the most gruesome take on the isometric Souls-like genre yet!

    You are the last surviving Striver of Dibrom. Your duty, for which you have trained your whole life, is to defeat the Seven Acolytes, accursed and powerful beings, possessed by malevolent deities called Gahars.

    Challenging foes, mini-bosses, and memorable large-scale boss fights with fully orchestrated music, are central to the world of Morbid. To overcome these obstacles you must master the combat, as well as improve your character and gear through a wealth of elements such as Quests, Perks, Runes, Upgrades, and Looting.

    The Gahars have bound their twisted minds to the flesh of the Seven Acolytes, for without hosts they cannot survive. You must slay the Acolytes, thus ridding the Gahars of their flesh. Succeed, and you'll free the kingdom from the heavy yoke of their terror. Fail, and the malicious gods rule on, as the Acolytes rise anew, and madness prevails.

    -Experience epic, brutal boss encounters and explore a diverse array of environments
    -Perk levelling system with multiple ways to build your character
    -Deep, immersive lore with NPC's to meet throughout the world
    -Health, Stamina and Sanity management is important as you traverse the world

    Morbid: The Seven Acolytes is an enjoyable adventure if you’re after a steep challenge, but the lack of certain elements limits the amount of options you have.

I like stamina-based combat in that game, there is quick and strong attack, dodge roll, run, riposte, everything that is needed for souls-borne fans. Game not very long and it is also good point. It is awesome work at Switch no drawbacks found. Thanks to developers! Expand

    *This review will share some parts with my review of the same game for switch which I own for my switch lite*
    Phenomenal game through n through! I bought this game initially on my switch lite. I loved it so much I got it for my Xbox one and I can’t get enough of it! It’s an incredibly challenging, isometric souls like aRPG...the progression system is based on skill points you acquire by killing enemies n completing objectives. You hack n slash your way through the levels trying to find alters, which act as checkpoints. Here you can “meditate” which essentially refills your health/ammo etc. There are tons of weapons, everything from swords n axes to rifles n greathammers. You can find power ups such as healing/buffs scattered throughout the world and also runes, which provide amazing buffs to weapons when they’re slotted into them. The lore and story are DEEEEP!! I like how they placed all the lore and storytelling into a section you can access at the various alters between play times. It’s an intense grind of a game but so amazingly dark n atmospheric thanks to the sound n visuals!
    I gave it 8/10 on Xbox one and 9/10 on switch strictly because of the handheld ability. If you’re a hardcore gamer n enjoy dark stories n atmospheres AND pixel art, this game is outstanding!
    I have the switch version 9 because I only own a switch lite and I’m telling ya, this game, played in handheld mode really brings back memories of old school gameboy type enjoyment!

    I think it is a nice and beautiful game but no more than that. As a Dark souls veteran, it wasn't really hard. The games gives you too muchI think it is a nice and beautiful game but no more than that. As a Dark souls veteran, it wasn't really hard. The games gives you too much resources to make bosses easy. I was able to beat many of the main bosses and final boss first try. The parry damage is broken. I finished the game in 5 hours only and i see no replayability. It is lacking personality and not memorable. Expand
