Gorgeously presented and cleverly designed, this impressively realised Metroidvania excels in every area except originality.

Hollow Knight is the metroidvania you are looking for: epic, challenging, clever and so wide. Its mechanics borrowed from Souls are perfectly fit in this beautiful product.

Hollow Knight will stick with me for a while. It blends a Metroidvania and Dark Souls in near-perfect fashion. Its tight gameplay as well as its fantastic look and music immersed me into caring about a mysterious civilization of bugs. If "Soulsvainia" is a new sub-genre, then count me in. Also, count me in for the next thing that Team Cherry releases.
