A tough, well-wrought action-platformer distinguished by some toe-curling portrayals of sin.

Blasphemous is an eery Metroidvania with gorgeous animations and combat that's just a tad too one-dimensional.

An accomplished attempt to create a mix of Dark Souls and traditional Metroidvania, but its bizarre visual style ultimately overshadows its other virtues.

Blasphemous is unforgiving, brutal, and at times, unfair. Beneath the drudgery is a compelling and dark tale waiting to be uncovered. If you are willing to endure its frustrations, you’ll be rewarded with grim and spectacular visuals that’ll be forever burned into your mind, and an equally twisted story to match them.
