When I got my hands into this game, at first, I couldn’t believe that what my friends told me was true. I told them nah…you are exaggerating. However, after playing only a few hours, I couldn’t be happier not only that we have the opportunity to review it but also that we are going to present why this title is unique! But what is this game? Is it worth the hype? Should you pick it up when available? Stick around and you will find out now. Let’s start by mentioning a few things about the game itself.
Beneath the fading town of Dirtmouth sleeps an ancient, ruined kingdom. Many are drawn below the surface, searching for riches, or glory, or answers to old secrets. Hollow Knight is a classically styled 2D action adventure across a vast interconnected world. Explore twisting caverns, ancient cities and deadly wastes; battle tainted creatures and befriend bizarre bugs; and solve ancient mysteries at the kingdom's heart. To begin with, the very first aspect that really surprised me is the graphics and in general the art work of the title.
They are really sharp, unique and create an amazing atmosphere for even the most demanding players. The world is really well created full of details and an amazing soundtrack as well. Everything is hand drown as well. This title combines the classic aspects of 2D games we all loved with new elements that makes it even challenging. The world is vast, gloomy, full of twists and new enemies to face. New challenges emerge around every corner. As far as the enemies are concerned, there are over 130 enemies! 30 epic bosses! Face ferocious beasts and vanquish ancient knights on your quest through the kingdom.
Track down every last twisted foe and add them to your Hunter's Journal! You will face make new friends, discover a lot of different stories, new shops with various items and charms that will help you get stronger and develop your skill further. The soundtrack is also amazing as well! As far as the negatives aspects are concerned, I tried really hard but I couldn’t find any. The game is ideal for everyone that wants an unforgettable adventure.
To sum up, after playing the game for some time, I am really impressed with Hollow Knight. It is honestly AMAZING and worth checking out. If you want to support the best indie game of 2017 well…buy it instantly... this is the one.
