ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights
Top Critic Average
Nothing new but there's some lovely texture in this dark fable.
Ender Lilies may be standard Metroidvania through and through, but it rises above most of its peers with an engrossing sense of progression and entertaining combat, all presented in a beautiful package
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 is easily one of my most pleasant surprises this year. The game has fantastic visuals, challenging and satisfying gameplay, and an amazing soundtrack. If you're a fan of Metroidvania games, I implore you to give this game a shot as you'll no doubt be left feeling as satisfied as I am.
Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights is a charming and melancholy Metroidvania that doesn't stray far from its roots and inspirations.
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.
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 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.
