    With an exceptional heavy metal presentation thanks to a brilliant soundtrack and uniquely detailed visuals, Valfaris is as metal as gaming gets.

    Valfaris isn’t so much full of surprises as much as full of bad guys. No matter which way you face you will have some enemies coming at you – though you’l also have piles of enemies at your feet before too long! I did however find it really tough, it’s punishing difficulty almost too much at times. If you like a challenge then you’ll be right at home here, but those after a more serene experience will do good to look elsewhere.

    While Valfaris is in many ways an excellent game, it's held back by some significant design flaws and technical problems.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Valfaris is a game that can surprise you right away and can keep the excitement throughout your narrative. The theme, soundtrack and gameplay style are very common to the genre and here you would think we have nothing new, but the merge of these elements in the title are very well executed, showing a maturing development team and a great title of the shoot games. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves classic games and / or who likes a challenge the old fashioned way. He's not flawless, but can deliver a few hours of fun. Expand
