I am very jaded when it comes to Metroidvania titles, I feel there is a supreme over-saturation of them on the market. Though I can respect the ones that truly stand out against the backdrop, titles such as Dead Cells or Ori and the Blind Forest. Though one game struck me and stayed with me, a title so simple yet elegant; this title was Hollow Knight.
The stunning visual style mixed with a simple, yet very refined combat system; this combination has put Hollow Knight head and shoulders above all other Metroidvania games for me personally. The games haunting tones and the eerie soundtrack give off a wave of oppression and sorrow. This is a beautifully crafted game that should be experienced by as many people as possible.
This charming game is now available on Xbox One, if you are going to do yourself a favour then buy this. I previously bought this on my Nintendo Switch and tempted to purchase once again.
You can pick up from the Microsoft Store now. The title has an introduction price of £9.99, though the title it normally priced £12.49.
The game comes with all previous DLC packs included in the games price, so no need to screw the fan base over for extra cash here.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts on this gem of a game that we can not praise enough.
