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.

Freshness in the metroidvania genre with minor flaws in its gameplay.

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.

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.

With its weak game world, Hunter's Legacy doesn't deliver on its MetroidVania promise, but it does provide for a solid platformer with some really fun puzzles.

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.

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 competent enough, but doesn’t do enough to stand out in a crowded market.

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.
