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 is a beautifully haunting game. The mechanics are solid but they bring very little new to the table. At the same time, the world is interesting and the theme is pretty intriguing. If you’re into Metroidvania and the prospect of exploring a world of profanity, blasphemy, and violence fascinates you, Blasphemous will be up your alley.
Blasphemous walks that tightest of ropes between goddamnit-I-hate-this-game frustration and oh-my-god-I’m-so-proud-of-myself bliss we all love. When you’re running low on health you’ll have to decide whether to push on or return to a shrine to freshen up, because all the enemies you just beat will be back when you turn around. That means you may well end up worse off if you make a mistake.
