Mixing different genres and mechanics, ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights is perhaps one of the lesser-known, albeit one of the best Metroidvania titles released in the last ten years. From start to finish, with very few caveats, the game excels in everything it does.

ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights brings together several elements that pique my interest in metroidvania games: vast map full of secret locations, well-developed characters, a striking plot and, to top it off, a neat visual and a pleasant soundtrack that, together, contribute to a formidable ambiance. Although the title does not add great originality to the style, it knows very well how to use the inspiration of established franchises without sounding like something cliché or excessive, making it easily one of the best recommendations for those looking for an experience worthy of the best games of the genre.

ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights is an excellent game, a fantastic metroidvania, and a great work of design and art. Inspirations and similarities, with their own personality, combats, a lot of exploration, pitfalls and possibilities. A title that cannot be missed unless the reader has a minimum taste for 2D games of this genre, here represented by a very complete, rich title with a commendable artistic invoice.

‎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 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 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.

ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights is a gorgeously haunting game, in both visuals and sounds. A few oddities in controls but overall a wonderful, tear-jerking and somewhat eerie experience.
