Top Critic Average
All in all, Hunter’s Legacy is a fantastic game with a lot to offer. The art style and music are top-notch and give this game a very interesting look and feel. I highly recommend Hunter’s Legacy for all you Metroidvania fans since it’s a very polished release you’ll certainly enjoy.
Hunter’s Legacy is a fun Metroidvania on PS4 that will give even experienced players a bit of a workout. Its difficulty is not overwhelming but more skilled players will have an easier time finding everything in the game. If you’re looking for a new Metroidvania to take on the PlayStation 4, Hunter’s Legacy is a good option.
All told, Hunter’s Legacy is a good game. It falls short of great by not offering any real innovation, but the smooth play and vibrant design keep it above average on all levels.
Music and art help set a strong atmosphere are very important for platformers, to help them stand out from the crowd, and I feel that's one area where Hunter's Legacy shines.
In general Hunter’s Legacy plays reasonably well, and may have an appeal for people who like things getting tough as it wears on, but it also suffers from being a bit too generic. Among more innovative titles that keep the hits coming on a consistent basis there’s quite a bit of excitement “dead time” along the way in Legacy where you’re going through the motions. Early on you do gain upgrades for your bow and arrows that help you get to new areas but there’s nothing quite as radical added to your arsenal as you see in other titles either, making even upgrades a bit less exciting than usual. If you’re down for challenging play and are willing to wait it out a bit to get to that point Hunter’s Legacy gets more exciting, it’s just a bit of a slog up until that point.
Hunter’s Legacy is another platformer in a sea of platformers. Some of the puzzles are clever, going beyond jumping around to involve intriguing elements, but otherwise not much about it stands out from the crowd.
Hunter’s Legacy is not a bad game by any stretch. In fact, there are a lot of games out there that wishes it could control as tight as this one. It’s just not going to blow anyone away with really anything it does. I never disliked my time with it, but the backtracking and lack of a decent map was a disappointment.
If this game sounds like a challenge, I can assure you that it is. If you’re looking for a difficult game and nothing else, Hunter’s Legacy delivers in the end. Parts of it are fun, but so much of the game feels like a missed opportunity, especially in terms of its plot, characterization, and world-building. The relentless gameplay near the end does nothing to redeem Hunter’s Legacy from what it’s ultimately missing.
Hunter's Legacy is an action-adventure game that offers a story that has been told over and over in many forms without offering much that is different. With different locations to explore and teleporters to help you get around, the game feels quite large. Ultimately, though, you'll end up annoyed, potentially lost and feeling defeated on a number of different occasions whilst playing it; this lets the game down. The appearance of the game is one of its strongest points, but while it is fun in parts and generally an enjoyable experience, Hunter's Legacy just isn't quite the cat's pyjamas.
In the end, Hunter's Legacy could use some improvements. Combat could certainly be tightened up, and the rewards for exploration could've been much more enticing. It also could've done better in the presentation department, since it doesn't stand out in this area, either. The title has the basics down well enough that it can remain enjoyable, and those who aren't too picky can have a good time with this, especially when you take into account the relatively low price of $6.99 on Steam.
Cats are incredible creatures. They can seemingly be let out of the house and have the ability to roam about before finding their way back home. They can land on their feet from great height, while also giving the Illusion of being all cute and cuddly. What cats are not usually known as are incredible warriors, however Hunter’s Legacy proves that cats can actually hold their own against the forces of evil.
Hunter's Legacy features a classic "metroidvania" style and excellent mapping. However, the poor character design and combat system contribute to a very frustrating experience.

Hunter’s Legacy is a good attempt for Mexican and Latin game development, but flaws in it's game mechanics, a poor level design and mediocre visuals, makes it a boring game that doesn't contribute in anyway.

Hunter's Legacy is by no means a terrible game but, it is by no means a great game either. For everything that Hunter's Legacy brings to the table its held back by such an average state in almost every area. Metroidvania is a very hard genre to develop for as the highs of the genre is almost impossible to achieve and Hunter's Legacy feels that struggle. It's nothing to write home about but for its price, if you are a lover of the genre then it may be worth your time.
Hunter’s Legacy is a game that clearly wanted to remind players of classic metroidvania gameplay, but the combination of a generic plot, uninspired visuals, and uneven and often frustrating gameplay make Hunter’s Legacy a game that offers little to its players.
While Hunter's Legacy has some nice qualities, too much of it is spent on laborious boss battles. The other elements such as exploration and puzzle-solving are competently handled, and the dealings with minor foes are appropriately brief. Unfortunately, these feelings of goodwill are eroded and then all but erased by encounters that rely too much on randomness, and don't provide enough of a legitimate challenge. If someone is willing to look past that, then they'll find Hunter's Legacy to be pretty enjoyable. Although, that's a contradiction, isn't it? It's impossible to look past something that has to be done.
