So I am absolutely LOVING this game right now.
I’ve put way too much time into it (I won’t say exactly how much as my wife reads this) and have loved every second of it. At first hearing that it was like a ‘metroidvania‘ I was thrilled. Symphony of the Night is still one of my favorite games of all time and any chance I get to play one similar to it is a bonus for me. After I downloaded it and realized that it heavily incorporated ideas from the Dark Souls I never thought I would play a more perfect game for me.
Between the leveling and skill system to the extensive equipment and magic choices to the challenging monsters and epic boss fights and branching open map and even the deep story and lore, this game has it all.
If you are in any way a fan of metroidvanias or dark souls I recommend this game 100%
Bonus for anyone who needs some tips:
Video I did of the fastest salt farming in the game.
And here is a spreadsheet I compiled of all the armor stats in the game, to make it easier to compare and contrast sets.
Hope you enjoy it!
