We enjoyed Grimvalor more than we thought, even if it doesn't reinvent the wheel in any field. A good choice if you're looking for a solid metroidvania with soulslike elements.

Grimvalor might not be the prettiest or most complicated game on the Switch, but the fun factor is hard to argue with. It's a pretty standard, simple hack and slash platformer, but it knows exactly what it is, and does it well. It's not the most challenging game in the world, but it's enjoyable from start to finish.

I can heartily recommend this game to any Metroidvania-fan looking for a new challenge.

Grimvalor is a side-scrolling platformer for people who love the challenge that the Dark Souls series entails, but hate the punishing gameplay that comes along with it. Despite its lacklustre story, the gameplay is fast, fluid and constantly evolving to keep things engaging until the very end.
