A stern yet scintillating 2D adventure that makes a point of not holding your hand.

9.4 / 10.0

Hollow Knight is a Metroidvania with a well of content to discover that's as deep as its labyrinthine caves. The world of Hallownest is compelling and rich, full of story that's left for you to discover on your own, and built with branching paths that offer an absurd amount of choice in how you go about discovering it. With such a high density of secrets to find and fun, challenging enemies to face, it's worth spending every moment you can in Hollow Knight.

Gorgeously presented and cleverly designed, this impressively realised Metroidvania excels in every area except originality.
