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.
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 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.
