  • Blasphemous might be derivative, but it's one of the best, if not the best Metroid-like I've played this year. Not only is it downright gorgeous, but the gameplay is uniformly excellent and hunting for its many secrets make it a puzzle well worth exploring.

  • Blasphemous combines extreme difficulty, some religious elements and a beautiful pixel-art-world in a truly fascinating way. Recommended for everybody who does not only want to be entertained, but also challenged.

  • Blasphemous exudes quality throughout its entire playable and narrative proposal. A game taken care of to the smallest detail. A superb metroidvania.

  • Blasphemous is a twisted take on religion and Metroidvanias, providing great combat, fantastic visuals and a world that’s soaked in both blood and well-written lore.

  • Having a subtractive design at its core, Blasphemous doesn't fiddle with the tried-and-true Metroidvania formula. Instead, it keeps things simple and grabs the player's attention with its despondent imagery and its riveting atmosphere and world building.

  • You will hate this game and you will love it. It won’t stop torturing you and fraying your nerves, but at the same time, it’s glorious fun.

  • Just one more Metroidvania? Not really. Blasphemous has its own thing, with its grim, gloomy atmosphere and tight combats. We could have used some more save points though.

  • Despite being a bit tedious, Blasphemous offers many satisfying moments like being able to find a shortcut or a shrine when you most need it. Some of the quests are really interesting and even if they're not mandatory to finish the game, I would strongly recommend trying to finish as many of them as possible. The way the story is told (or rather discovered), the amazing artwork, and the fast-paced combat are aspects of the game that grabbed me throughout my playthrough. You'll indeed have to do a lot of backtracking if you want to complete as much as the game as possible, but the rewards are worth it.

  • Blasphemous is a Metroidvania with gorgeous pixelated graphics and simple, yet satisfying combat. Tedious sidequests and some minor design flaws hold back this 2D from shining even more.

  • All in all, I would have liked a bit more narrative narrative and a more level-focused skill design that would not let me search the needle in a haystack in the vast world alone.

  • You will enjoy with the epic battles from Blasphemous and its amazing retro art style, but this metroidvania action game doesn't reach its best version because a simple combat system and an irregular level design.

  • Blasphemous is a successful mix of two landmark series which already have previous and recent masterworks in common. Visually striking and delivering some of this year´s best pixel art, its shortcomings relate to both the combat and control schemes, which somewhat overshadow some really good sense of exploration in many of ithe game´s zones. Otherwise, this is a pretty good metroidvania / souls, very enjoyable from start to finish.

  • The beautiful depiction of the grotesque and nightmarish religious world of Cvstodia is a good enough reason to visit it. If only its simplistic gameplay and almost non-existent progression of the character could match the high quality of its detailed pixel art, then we could be talking about a truly original masterpiece of the genre.

  • Besides the astonishing art design and the rich and imaginative dark-fantasy world, Blasphemous doesn't know how to mix perfectly the different genres it belongs to.

  • Blasphemous is a truly unforgettable experience that stands out in the Metroidvania genre.

  • Blasphemous may be a case of style over substance, but that style still carries it a long way. It's very clear that a lot of time and effort went into making this game look and sound as good as possible. If you're craving a well-produced Soulslike or Metroidvania and you don't mind slower combat and a one-note narrative, then Blasphemous will give you an intense fix.

  • Lack of depth and variety, and some platforming missteps, stain an otherwise great, oppressive experience.

  • Though it can be frustrating that its core gameplay never evolves past the often one-note rhythm of hacking and jumping across different levels, keeping it from reaching greater heights, I still came away impressed with how much Blasphemous stuck close to its haunting, dark storyline. To that end, playing through this send-up to metroidvania games was a satisfying trial to overcome in its own right.

  • Visually striking and filled with a lot of interesting lore bits, Blasphemous is a competent action/platform with a pinch of souls-like and metroidvania mechanics. A brutal and well executed adventure with some flaws gameplaywise and a quality level with several ups and downs.

  • A gore-laden feast for the most barbaric among us, Blasphemous truly is a punishing game in the best possible way. I just wish it had a more gripping story to go with it.
