Critic Reviews for Blasphemous

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

Lack of depth and variety, and some platforming missteps, stain an otherwise great, oppressive experience.

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

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 an exciting dark-fantasy adventure with religious undertones, yet it struggles to maintain its poise throughout.

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.
