    After pain, you will feel a sense of achievement.

    I LOVED this game. Yes, it is an incredibly hard Metroidvania style game. There were some bosses that took me 20 tries (or more) to beat. If you’re not a fan of incredibly hard boss fights, then I’d probably pass on this one. To be honest there are a couple bosses in the DLC that I never beat because they were just too hard, but overall, this game is spectacular. It has crazy smooth controls and beautiful graphics.

    I quit at least 4 different times after starting little 15 minute starting sessions and kept scratching my head: What the hell is this difficult crap of a game, and why is it SERIOUSLY overrated?
    Well, after finally sticking with it for two hours I started to get it. And man, it is still insanely brutal at times while being beautiful, rewarding, and one of my favorite experiences of 2018. Big learning curve to start but worth staying with it!

    I've found it really hard to stay interested in this one. Not sure if i will ever be able to finish it as it doesn't grab me like the hype would expect. Game plays and looks superb.

    Excellent game the more you play the more you like it.
