Paradox Soul is a Metroidvania that manages to keep the spirit of the genre despite being smaller in scope. Mix in some decent collectibles and combat scenarios, this is a great title any fan of the genre should try.

Overall Paradox Soul delivers on what it intends on being, a competent Metroidvania with an interesting atmosphere and a bit of intrigue. I do wish the game was a bit more expansive in scope, but all the other pieces are there from the artwork down to the music. If you've got a few hours to kill I'd suggest picking it up.

On its own, Paradox Soul is an average Metroidvania that will keep you reasonably entertained throughout its fairly short duration thanks to its creepy art direction and atmospheric soundtrack. But when you look at it next to some of the more accomplished examples of the genre on Switch, its repetitive nature and uninspired cover-shooting mechanics hold it back from being truly recommendable.
