Action so intense it'll leave you jittery and hopped-up on adrenaline, and characters to come back for.
Hades is a one-of-a-kind rogue-lite that does a brilliant job of marrying its fast-paced action with its persistent, progressing story through a vividly reimagined Greek mythological underworld.
Greek gods bring family charm to this glittering headlong pelt through the underworld
A hell of a good roguelike, supported by a surprisingly strong narrative that provides just as much motivation to persevere as the excellent combat system.
Supergiant has crafted another beautiful game, this time a story-laden roguelite that demands dozens of hours to fully experience.
Try as I might, I cannot find fault in Hades. It’s even created a calm in me that no other similar game has. Loss isn’t a frustrating experience met with loud swear words and the sounds of scrambling feet made by my previously sleeping cats. Failure is just another step on a long adventure with one of my favorite games, years in the making and well-worth the wait.
Hades' varied combat and progression make it a great action roguelike, but its novel approach to storytelling is what makes it stand out in the genre.
A multifaceted story that unfolds based on how you play, sublime combat that rewards experimentation, challenges that are only as difficult as you want them to be, all the good feelings of roguelikes without a lot of the hassle.
Hades takes the hated cycle of retrying the same checkpoint over and over again, flips it on its head with rewarding progression, and makes the player genuinely look forward to starting anew. Gods, it’s impressive!
Hades had the unenviable task of bridging a well-established action-roguelike format with impactful character-driven storytelling, and neither element feels like an afterthought. They lift each other to new heights. The finer details – all those little artistic touches that add up over time – really seal the deal.
Hades was already one of the best games of 2020 and the best work of Supergiant Games, and this new version for Microsoft's and Sony's consoles is just another proof of it.

To put it simply: Hades is Supergiant's best work to date and one of the best games of 2020. Top level gameplay, story, design, art, and soundtrack come together to form the most addictive roguelite ever. You can escape from the Underworld, but not from this game.

Hades is one of the best roguelites of all-time. It's a phenomenal achievement in story telling, gameplay, and an absolute treat for both your eyes and ears. It's astounding, and it's always been fairly astounding through Early Access, but this final release cements it as one of the greats. If you like roguelites, and even if you don't, you should probably get in on this as soon as you can.
Whether you’re looking for a challenging action game or just want to enjoy a beautifully illustrated and orchestrated story, Hades might be my preferred recommendation for romps through Hell.
Hades is a contender for one of the best roguelike in recent years. The extraordinary magnetism that surrounds him, the desire that instills in the player to try relentlessly, maybe even just to read the umpteenth sarcastic comment of the deity on duty, are very valuable features. Supergiant Games' tricks in outlining every little detail of his creature are children of a true and palpable passion. Rare merchandise these days, which no player should miss,

One of the best games of the last few years comes to next-gen consoles. Hades is a great ride on PS5, and well worth your time.
Whatever you like games for, graphics, gameplay, fun factor, Hades has this all in spades with equally exceptional quality wherever you choose to play it.
Hades is a fantastic experience regardless of platform. An addictive, accessible, and charming roguelike adventure.
Only time will tell if Hades joins the pantheon of roguelike greats alongside The Binding of Isaac and Dead Cells, but it makes an incredibly strong impression. Hades succeeds as both a narrative-driven adventure and an addicting roguelike, and that's a pretty tough combination to pull off.
