Hello and today I am back (hopefully) from my hiatus and I’m going to do a review on Hollow Knight. I’m keeping this nice and simple and just going right in.
Hollow Knight is a metroidvania esc game where you play as the Knight on a quest like none other. The main game mechanics is jumping and using the nails. If you look at the controls you might wonder what’s the dream nail, and what’s spells and dashing. To that I say just be a patient person and you’ll get those moves eventually. You can technically focus from straight off the bat if you have soul, but it’s to heal. One thing to note is when traversing the area, spikes almost always win, with the exception of using your nail against it.Now onto plot. I am just going to say you find out the plot by exploring. This is a truly phenomenal plot. I was hooked straight from the get go. There is very rare situation where I don’t elaborate on a plot and this is it. I love the plot, and go experience it for yourself. ‘Nuff said.
The audio and visuals for this game is, simply put, amazing. How this game handles everything is flipping awesome. When the developers wanted to set an unnerving scene, they put in a little violen and made freaking creepy visuals. When they wanted a tranquil feel they made a gloomy image with a soothing melody. This is hands down impressive work.
In summary I would give this game a 9.9 out of ten. The point one is me being petty and wanting more. I also want a plushie or something of some of the games things. That would be nice. But realistically I give this game a 10/10. I can’t be petty. I would recommend this for kids, for adults, for teens, for elderly, heck, for any one. That is all for now-
