It's been a while since I review any games. Mostly because there was just not that many games for me to play. Some games I simply won't buy until I get my hands on my own PS5. Yea, it's still impossible to buy a PS5 for me where I live and for the gazillionth time, I won't buy it from scalpers. Sony take note!


Back to Hades. It took me 16 runs to beat Megaera which is the first boss and I died not long after that and I was shock to find out that I had to do it all over again from the beginning. Obviously I never played a rogue-like games before.


Most games that are too difficult will turn me off and it usually hard for me to come back and keep trying (talking to you Sekiro) but Hades keeps me coming back purely because the variety of ways you can play. In fact, every run will be different and you will eventually find a way to beat a certain level. You have a certain degree of choice, in terms of what perks you choose and weapon but even those can be varied.


I have 'beat' the game twice so far but there are more stories and secrets to uncover. Basically, you never actually finished the story until you beat this game over and over and over again in so many different ways.


Perhaps the best thing about it for me is the fast paced action packed combat. Never felt repetitive and they managed to weave in the story with just dialogues between Zagreus (your character) and the other Greek mythology gods and creatures. These characters are very memorable and 'fun' personalities. I love the lighthearted take on the mythology that have been so overused.


I'll keep playing and I'm going to try to complete as many trophies as possible. Also making sure I pet Cerberus at least once each run. He's such a good boi!

Sure, Hades is not quite perfect. If you hate roguelikes, the narrative won't be enough to sway you, and personally, I’m not a huge fan of games that make you wait for waves of enemies to spawn in, but it's damn close. I’ve grown wary of difficult games and roguelikes as I’ve got older, but Hades manages to ensure you feel like you’re always making progress, be that narratively or mechanically.

Hades is an excellent action game that allows players to find progression even in death. Roguelikes are normally known for their high level of difficulty, but in Hades, the greatest challenge you’ll face is trying to put it down.

Ha sido creado por un equipo muy pequeño de apenas unos pocos creativos pero la calidad de Hades es inmensa. Emulando la historia de David contra Goliath, lo nuevo de Supergiant es capaz de plantar cara incluso a los más grandes con su fantástica acción hack'n slash, su inteligente diseño de juego y fascinante estética.
