Wonderful Zelda-like action-adventure game for people who don't own a console and can't play Zelda. Spiced up with some DarkSouls gameplay elements and a main character which looks like Hallow Knight. With the main focus definitely on platforming. Well, that's a lot mixed into, but it works perfectly fine. Not without it flaws ofc. But what game is? I would give it a solid 6/10.
1.) Level design and overall gameworld
2.) Soundtrack and sound effects
3.) A lot of -fun to use- movement abilities
4.) Great and challenging platforming parts, especially in the DLC
5.) Free, big, DLCs and upgrades! You can't mention something like that often enough these days with all those absolutely trash and useless micro-DLCs or cut-out content DLCs in most of the games
1.) The story is very generic and i think the lost a lot of potential there
2.) Because the main focus is on platforming, combat falls a bit short. Don'T get me wrong, combat is kind of fun. You can parry, dodge and use your movement abilities. But there aren't many parts where you really have to fight and a lot of monsters are just lurking over abit, where you can't use anything from the above. That sucks.
1.) Boss fights. Meh. Just meh. The first ones are extremley easy and the later ones all over a bit, so you can't use all of your awesome fighting abilities. Really weird gamedesign.
2.) Platforming would be sooooo great, but the camara just makes it akward too many times. Just give us the option to put the camara more in the back, so you actually can see where you are jumping. One of the most important things in any platformer is the camara. Yikes!
So overall, a great Zelda clone with just enough uniqueness to separate it. If it weren't for this terrible camera at times, it would have jumped onto my top tier list of platformer games. So it's just a little bit bellow that. If you can get your hands on it and like the genre, you can't go wrong here. At full price and definitely on sale.
