Hollow Knight is a big, beautiful, forbidding Metroidvania that's absolutely thick with detail. From its punchy combat system to its charming art and sound design, this is one of the finest adventures you can have on Nintendo Switch.
Very challenging; Well-balanced difficulty that never feels unfair; Amazing boss battles; Excellent, varied enemy design; Precise controls for combat and platforming make the moment-to-moment gameplay a blast; Keeps adding new layers to progressively make combat and platforming more complex; Charms add an extra layer of depth and nuance to the proceedings; Vast, layered, interconnected, intertwining map.
It’s deep and rewarding, but also brooding and destructive. It’s a shame that, very occasionally, the precise platforming is ruined with a random push of the jump button registering a second too late; resulting in damage from spikes, but you can’t have it all, I suppose.
