Blasphemous requires a lot of patience and practice because you have to get really good at the combat. If you like challenging platformers, then this a must-have due to its unique story and art style. However, it may not be for everyone due to its steep difficulty and focus on constant death.

Blasphemous is a Metroidvania with gorgeous pixelated graphics and simple, yet satisfying combat. Tedious sidequests and some minor design flaws hold back this 2D from shining even more.

A tough, well-wrought action-platformer distinguished by some toe-curling portrayals of sin.

Blasphemous is a perfectly competent "Souls-like" game, but while it's high on stark beauty and vicious violence, it comes up short on substance.

There are better ways to get rid of your sins (and spend more quality time). Console version has some technical bugs that undermines the otherwise brilliant experience.

A formulaic Metroidvania with satisfying combat and a thick mood in the air, Blasphemous uses its pixel art style and fixation on religious iconography to establish a powerful vision of a forsaken world.

It is able to give an interesting experience, especially to those who will have the patience to carefully explore the game world, in search of the many secrets that lie in its dark depths

If you’re skilled, you can speed through in a little over ten hours, though exploring every nook and cranny of the map and finding all of the collectables can take upwards of double that, especially considering there are two endings to experience. At any rate, Blasphemous is torturously fun, and one of the best the genre has to offer.

Blasphemous might be derivative, but it's one of the best, if not the best Metroid-like I've played this year. Not only is it downright gorgeous, but the gameplay is uniformly excellent and hunting for its many secrets make it a puzzle well worth exploring.

Blasphemous is unforgiving, brutal, and at times, unfair. Beneath the drudgery is a compelling and dark tale waiting to be uncovered. If you are willing to endure its frustrations, you’ll be rewarded with grim and spectacular visuals that’ll be forever burned into your mind, and an equally twisted story to match them.

Blasphemous is a fantastic souls-like Metroidvania, featuring an exceptional aesthetic design that adds to what is one of the most macabre worlds in gaming today. In addition to this, outstanding combat and a range of interesting enemies, bosses and more - supported by some great level design (with some issues in navigation), this is a game that I can do nothing but recommend to anybody and everybody. It's difficult, challenging and most of all, fun.

If you love SNES platformers and aren't concerned by the possibility of an angry god pressing its "smite" button to rain lightning upon you, Blasphemous is simply a must-play.

An accomplished attempt to create a mix of Dark Souls and traditional Metroidvania, but its bizarre visual style ultimately overshadows its other virtues.

Blasphemous is a great little 2D Souls-like which will definitely appeal to fans of dark and difficult games. It doesn't have the polish of the likes of Dead Cells and is more linear than true Metroidvanias like Hollow Knight, but follows in the bloodied footsteps of titles like Death's Gambit and Slain: Back From Hell.

Blasphemous is an eery Metroidvania with gorgeous animations and combat that's just a tad too one-dimensional.

I can't get Blasphemous off my mind. I may never fully grasp the opaque story even with the inevitable community-led theories and explainers lending a hand, but that's okay. Even taken as a fanatical fever-dream, this game delivers. Some aspects aren't as fine-tuned or ambitious as they could've been, leading to unevenness, but there's so much for metroidvania fans to latch onto here.

Blasphemous is a metroidvania game that is just good in terms of gameplay, but manages to be outstanding with its art and setting. A folkloric piece of art in the shape of a videogame that results in one of the most attractive indies of 2019 so far.

A "Soulsvania" game with its own character, that draws artistic inspiration from the spanish Easter imagery and Goya's paintings las pinturas, both in the visual and the narrative. In gameplay terms, it's a superb and hard adventure that mixes with intelligence ideas from the lesser linear Castlevanias with Dark Souls mechanics.
