As a retelling of three of Franz Kafka’s best-known works, Metamorphosis has a lot to live up to and it does so quite well. It will leave you wanting a little more after your playthrough, but the gameplay, visuals and genuine attention to detail are extremely impressive nonetheless.

Metamorphosis is a fascinating look into the life of a man who desperately tries to save his friend from uncertain peril. It parallels the life of a man who wrote pieces that are present in this video game. Though the storytelling of our world through the eyes of a beetle is intriguing, the ending falls a little flat - through no fault of the developers. My entire experience in Metamorphosis was filled with wonder and awe as I climbed walls, scurried through holes, and dodged obstacles.

Metamorphosis has a great premise and a very intelligent story. I’m not gonna lie, playing as a bug in a first-person perspective was impressive at first. Too bad this one of the most unpolished games I have ever played in my life.

Metamorphosis isn’t an easy game to complete. Not quite because it’s challenging, but because it feels heavy and repetitive. Despite these problems, the game is still a great experience, really giving the player the feeling they’re reading Kafka’s book.

In the end, Metamorphosis is a good game despite issues with NPC animation and dialogue. Although intentionally creepy and psychologically thrilling, which some may be off-put by especially if they despise insects of any kind. Metamorphosis offers excellent gameplay, controls, graphics and music that makes you feel like a bug. For good or bad, depending on your perspective. Nevertheless, the game objectively achieves what it sets out to do with fantastic gameplay, musical and graphical elements. For this, it deserves credit.

This bug-filled game transforms you into a bug set right in a Frank Kafka novel. It's creepy-crawly, surreal adventure game fun. The visual, voice acting, and music put you in a magical insect world you will enjoy from start to finish.
