Many people didn't like it, I wasn't one of them.

I've been playing this one for a bit in handheld, and yeah, performance is a bit shit.
I hope they manage to patch it because it really deserves it : I'm hooked despite the stuttering!
It has that sense of mystery and danger that many Souls clones lack.
Here's hoping they make a sequel with a bigger budget, it's good stuff.

Another complete shambles of a Switch port. Four years and Doom Eternal later, you would think they would have figured it out

The notorious difficulty of Dark Souls HAS put me off buying it for Switch
(I felt pretty bad-ass when I beat New Super Mario Bros!)
So I reckon there's a market for this.
Interested…

Is this game better or worse than Mortal Shell,? I've finished that game as with most souls-like games, but this is the only one I didn't like at all.

Did they fix the game breaking glitches and the fact that one of the weapon paths is OP and basically destroys the game?

It's so hard to not be at least a little interested. Huge fan of the souls series as well as the dead space series. Have to add this to my wish list. So that I can later add it to my backlog.

Interesting, I probably will get the physical edition, since while I don't mind digital copies, there is just the satisfaction of having the case

I'm sorry to say but I'm going to have to say this is probs your channels only bad review, I bought this game as I'm a die hard souls fan, but soon after booting up the game, defeating a boss and getting to the second area (sohn district) I find myself unable to play due to frame rate dropping in the single digits, that's not the only problem I can deal with bad frame rate, but what I can't deal with is all of my moves completely phasing through enemies not dealing damage at all this is consistent btw I literally cannot do a thing and I'm constantly battered with completely all blacked out textures, as soon as I reached the observatory I expected to see the glorious black hole and how it would hold up on switch but nope got hit with that blank texture again. Sorry for the long comment but as someone who is on NG+8 on dark souls I'm finding it hard not to completely dump on this game.

I've been waiting for another souls-like game that I can play portable, but unfortunately I'm going to pass on this title even though I've been waiting for it the cuts that have been made to this port unfortunately destroy the atmosphere of the space station

The gameplay footage looks like an early ps3 game, hard pass.

Or Ashen but more sci-fi.

got this on release day along with mortal shell , these 2 games are so alike and yet so different, to be honest, i loved this game and did finish it, it has amazing charm and a lot of mood in it, and it is a good playthrough , just i recommend one thing, get it cheap, i managed to score it for a very low price thanks to preorder discount and a $10 code , so it was worth it , but that was on pc and it looked great , good game, good ideas, a bit cluncky , also it helped a lot that they had a very well made demo for it so u could try before u buy, i am just not too sure about it on switch.

This game is first class in metroidvania exploration/secrets, with some awe inspiring environments. The combat is visceral and tight, and I like the dedicated jump button for some platforming weird at first but you get used to it.

The story is cryptic, but most of it is done environmentally, with bits of juicy lore scattered everywhere. I pirated this at first but loved it so much (some jank and all) that I bought two copies for a friend and I. There are three endings to find, so play once alone and master it in NG+ with a buddy. I cant wait for DLC

It's worth it if yiu can only play docked for now. The devs are very helpful on reddit page and discord.

I don't hate the look of the character but i also don't care for the look either reminds me to much of the alien thing from prometheus the alien type robot from star trek and one of the monsters from mass effect 1.

Its seems pretty interesting but right now my list of games is too long (I still have to play Breath of the Wild xD) and the handheld perfomance issue for now is a big NO-NO. As always, great video!

We need a remaster of ALL the Legacy of Kain games on Switch. And I’m actually loving Hellpoint. Only bad thing about it is the frame rate drops in handheld
Edit: there is no physical of the game over here in the US. The file size is 3.1 GB, came out Feb 25th and runs approx $35 US. Rating info: it got a whimpy PEGI 12 while getting an ESRB Mature 17+ rating, but it easily could’ve gotten away with a Teen rating

Graphics seem decent, I like the title, I prefer to play off the dock so update needed but I do want to keep an eye on it. Taking a chance on Pine worked out decently.

Soul Reaver on switch would be amazing. As for Hellpoint, I can't figure out what I am doing wrong on the Couerl boss.

Unique visual design but had major gameplay flaws imo. I played the PC version and the killer for me so far is the health upgrade system. You always start off with 2 charges even if you upgrade to 4 – you HAVE to wipe out enemies again to get it full again. Just makes the game feel so repetitive after a while, clearing monsters and backtracking to the breach for health.
