Morbid: The Seven Acolytes is a great top-down Soulslike with the right mix of challenge and reward. It makes good use of the systems and mechanics it borrows from the genre staples and combines this with a darkly beautiful aesthetic and some memorable boss fights. It's not always clear how or the best way to progress, but if you've got a hankering for a bloody good time then you won't go too far wrong with Morbid.

Morbid: The Seven Acolytes is an enjoyable adventure if you're after a steep challenge, but the lack of certain elements limits the amount of options you have.

Morbid: The Seven Acolytes certainly isn’t a game you should pick up for its gameplay. The combat is just shallow, but in no way unplayable. If you are intrigued by the game’s world and aesthetics—and you aren’t much of a stickler for gameplay—I’d happily recommend it.

Sprawling level design, thrilling combat, and great storytelling.

Morbid follows the Dark Souls formula pretty closely despite it having a retro charm, but the boss fights are an undeniable highlight of the game. Disturbing bouts of danger that will snuff your flame out with a single lucky blow, these encounters boast an incredible art direction, fascinating gameplay quirks, and a challenge that'll leave your controller moist with hand sweat.

Morbid is a nice first attempt at the genre by the people at Still Running and a good alternative for who is starving for a new soulslike game, but it can be improved in many areas and it's consistently lacking in originality.

Morbid struggles with an identity crisis of sorts. Trying to find its own place among the rising tide of souls-like games of recent times.

While still a bit rough around the edges, Morbid: The Seven Acolytes is a solid entry with excellent developer support that shows great potential.
