There are very few mistakes made by Hollow Knight, even though the platforming might be frustrating at times and its gigantic map may overwhelm you, the combat, visuals, and soundtrack make this game an unforgettable experience and a new standard on the Metroidvania genre.

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.

Hollow Knight knows well how to blend it's main influences. On one side the classic 2D Metroid and Castlevania games, and the Souls franchise, with their over the top difficulty lowkey frustrating.
