This is what gaming is all about. There are words to describe how great this game is but I'll try. First of all it's beautiful to look at. As you traverse all the areas of the kingdom you'll be taken aback by the beautiful backgrounds and the diversity of the characters for small to big. The Lore and stories of hollownest just envelope you into it. The challenges are many and some are easy while many are not. I find myself coming back to this game on a daily basis determined to beat it. I can't hello it as I've been so drawn into it. One of the best things about this game is the cost. Now I'm one that feels the price of games on the gaming world is a bit rediculous. I normally wait for prices to go WAY down or I buy games second hand. I purchased this game at its everyday price of $16.99 (???)The funny thing is i feel this game is worth SOOOO MUCH more. I truly hope whom so ever reads this review invests a few dollars for this game. It gets the highest recommendation! You cannot go wrong!
Hollow Knight is really a long adventure; if you like exploring huge beautiful caverns and trying to defeat enemies, within a nice soundtrack, you will love this game too. :)
The graphics are unique and excellent. Hollow Knight is so much fun! :D There are so many helpful items that can be found or bought with in-game currency. Your Hollow Knight will get more effective at defeating enemies as you progress, new skills, in-game maps, and equip-able items. And if you find certain creatures you can travel to and from those locations quickly.
This switch bundle comes with the 4 dlc upgrades, an interesting instruction manual, a map, and a 15% off of all Hollow Knight products promo code.
Note: when you get close to perishing press the + button and select the third lowest menu item, something about saving and quitting. If you do that: all progress will be saved, you won't lose all of your Geo coins collected and have to fight your shadow to get them back, and you will start sitting on the last bench you sat on. (This is also very easy to do bc the game is made extremely well; almost instantaneous loading time.)
Simply put this game is amazing. I love absolutely everything about it. Easily my favorite metroidvania type game. The music, the environments, the challenging boss fights. Plus all available DLC comes on the cart which is hugh! If you are a fan of games in the metroidvania style you owe it to yourself to play this game!
Metroidvania games are some of the best game genre games to come back this generation kicking harder then ever. The Nintendo switch feels right at home with how many are coming out.
Hollow knight is one of the best ones anyone can recommend to anyone for the switch.
If you like side scroller platformers. Don't pass this one up!
so far having fun with this game. Im not too far into it yet, only because I play multiple games and work a full time job with 3 kids.
the only thing I thought was kinda lame was you collect a form a currency by killing enemies and then use the currency to purchase items in the shop. well I was lost and was trying to find out where i was on the map, which i only was able to see a small portion of. come to find out i actually had to buy map identifiers from the shop. so to show my characters location on the map i had to purchase that, to show where save benches were, i had to purchase that.
I enjoy the grind to collect and purchase items for your quest, but something like the map i think would be a default part of the game.
Excellent game for metroidvania fans or gamers new to the genre. Great platforming and smooth mechanics. Explore a dark and mysterious insect kingdom while being challenged with new bosses with every new unlocked area.
You have to discover the story bit by bit throughout the game but is a solid metroidvania with tight controls. In addition the developers have included several free DLC that increase the base game to provide even tougher challenges.
A:AnswerNo the Best Buy version only contains the first 3 DLC while Godmaster is a 1.7 GB download. If you want the full DLC on cart you’ll have to wait for the next batch of games from Fangsmer to arrive. The new sequel isn’t out and no clue on how they’ll handle the physical release of that.
A:AnswerDigital copy is where you download it directly from the Nintendo E-shop. Physical copy is an actual physical cartridge you buy in-store. If you buy the digital copy, what you get is a code you type into E-shop to download it.
A:AnswerReleasing a game physically has more associated costs - cartridges, order management, shipping, etc. This is even more true for smaller independent developers who have more of a niche game (low production run) and aren't connected with big publishers with established distribution channels.
A:AnswerNot sure if this was answered, but I'd reach out to their support.
My cashier did not place an Email down when I asked for an email receipt. So, my code was planned to be sent to "EMAIL". Yes just Email, not my actual email, but the word EMAIL.
For anyone having issues like this, your receipt (digital or physical) should state where your code is going to. If it doesn't list your email, then you gotta go back and ask for that code!! (or call their support...the store won't be able to give you the code)
