‎Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights is, in short, a masterpiece within the metroidvanias... and outside of them. Finesterra brings us one of the most memorable epics of the whole year, offering us a decadent universe as tragic as beautiful that perfectly adorns a precise, complex and fun gameplay. In short, an essential acquisition for fans of the genre, for non-followers of the genre and for anyone who wants to give a gift to themselves. Absolute recommendation.‎

A classic new metroidvania inspired by Hollow Knight. It brings nothing new in the genre, but it makes no errors resulting in a very solid game with well crafted and various mechanics. It will lead you for more than 25 hours through an interesting realm hiding a fine story in it. A gem that simply deserves a place in the Olympus of metroidvanias.

Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights is a compelling, surprisingly charming little adventure. It may look dark and oppressive, but Lily is a likeable heroine.

Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights is a charming and melancholy Metroidvania that doesn't stray far from its roots and inspirations.

Ender Lilies is undoubtedly a very good Metroidvania. Carried by a sublime OST and a high-flying artistic direction, the app makes practically a faultless at all levels.

Ender Lilies: Quietus Of The Knights is a gorgeous and a fun to explore metroidvania, that sadly is dragged down by an awful map, limited equipment sets, and wonky difficulty balancing.

Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights has been in early access on Steam for quite some time, where it has garnered significant praise, and rightly so. Now coming to consoles and in full release on PC, any fan of games like Hollow Knight, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night or the Dark Souls franchise will enjoy Ender Lilies for its incredible art, mysterious story and action combat. Although it can be a little frustrating, Ender Lilies combat-by-proxy is an interesting and generally successful twist on familiar action mechanics, and the game hits the sweet spot between challenge and accessibility most of the time.

Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights does have a few issues. Overall, though, it more than delivers thanks to vibrant visuals, top-notch Metroidvania platforming, and challenging Souls-like combat.

‎Elder Lilies: Quietus of the Knight looks like a chapter taken from a book that could well be titled "The Art of Making a ‎‎Metroidvania‎‎ Correctly." A production that has caught me from the first moment and that I have no doubt that it will do the same with anyone who has enjoyed with ‎‎Hollow Knight‎‎ a game from which he drinks a lot but not to the point of being considered a copy or a veiled "homage". As a good work of manual, it follows the correct steps already written, but it does not contribute anything at a revolutionary level for the genre, something that does not have to be negative.‎

ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights has a structure that is certainly classic and recognizable for fans of the metroidvania genre, but at the same time manages to amaze thanks to an impeccable execution and a storyline that blooms hand and hand that continues in the adventure.

Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights is one of the strongest Metroidvanias of 2021, and easily one of the best examples of the genre on Switch to date. It boasts excellent visuals throughout, with bursts of colour lighting up the otherwise dreary kingdom, and a wonderful soundtrack that we guarantee will live rent-free in your head for hours. All of this is held together by strong gameplay, with a particular focus on customisable load-outs via the spirit abilities. It's a tough game at times, and the minor frame rate dips hold it back from true greatness, but with a respectable playtime of roughly 15 hours this is an experience you'll be glad to try out.

A gorgeous dark horse of a game with stellar art, writing, and gameplay that allow it to cut a path through the impossibly large mountain of Metroidvanias.
