    A brilliantly realized, brutal and bloody Metroidvania that is the next best thing to reading up on Catholic Martyrs while you whip yourself with a barbed cat-o-nine-tails.

    Blasphemous is hands down one of my favourite games of 2019. I wasn’t expecting it to be, but it’s one of those unexpected surprises; a gift that you didn’t think that you wanted but quickly becomes to be loved.

    Blasphemous treats the player mercilessly, but it's solid controls and mechanics, in addition to it's absolutely stunning aesthetics and complex and vast lore turns the game into fascinating (yet not flawless) experience.

    Blasphemous may not have the best combat, but its intriguing premise and visuals elevate it.

    Just one more Metroidvania? Not really. Blasphemous has its own thing, with its grim, gloomy atmosphere and tight combats. We could have used some more save points though.

    Praise be to Blasphemous, for it’s an impressive game that has truly joined together the peanut-butter-and-chocolate-style union that is souls-likes and metroidvania games. While certain levels and enemies could benefit from a bit more polish, the end result is still a sinful delight filled with heavily-enjoyable combat, tons of areas to explore and secrets to uncover, and some jaw-dropping (if brutal) sights. It may be a game filled with countless unholy terrors, but it also oddly has a lot of love put into it as well, so don’t miss out on it (if you don’t mind the occasional nightmare).

    Blasphemous is an absolutely stunning game everyone should see in motion. I loved it for the first 10 or so hours, but then it just continues to stay the course throughout. With a little more variety this could have been a true classic. Still this developer has some talent and I would love a follow-up with a little more flavor and a lot less bulk. On a purely visual scale this game has few equals and for that I can recommend it easily, just be aware that not much changes as far as game play goes throughout the entire journey.

    Genial juego, la ambientación tétrica me encanta, la música y la jugabilidad también. Es un juego difícil pero satisfactorio al final.

    This game has some of the most pretentious art direction I've ever come across in a game.

    It offers nothing new to the 2D Souls-Borne nor the Metroidvania style game, on top of having some irredeemably terrible controls and platforming mechanics.

    It's Blasphemous that this is a game that exists.
