Mindseize is a solid metroidvania that lacks spark and memorable characters.

MindSeize it's a modest game, both in aspirations and budget, and you can feel it in the execution. The plot and scenes are bland, a very well known gameplay circle that don't surprise... A game that moves in a well known terrain and don't risk a little... but can entertain you if classic 2D metroidvania it's your thing.

Mindseize has great combat and weapon variety, but the uninspired movement abilities and a plethora of bugs make it hard to recommend among its peers

A pacey, exciting game, MindSeize excels when it pits you one-on-one against one of its varied, aggressive bosses, but there are no elements of this little gem that aren't up to scratch. You're constantly moving forward and getting better at it, and the level design is good stuff. We don't feel like the Metroidvania backtracking really adds much to the experience, but it didn't spoil our fun. What we have here, ultimately, is a fantastic action game that's been forced into the shape of a markedly less brilliant Metroidvania, a format that doesn't play to the game's strengths. So, very good indeed, but could definitely have been a classic with a little more structure.
