Sundered Review - Rogue Legacy Meets Super Metroid

The Metroidvania genre is one that if you've ever gotten into it will no doubt hold a special place in your heart. RPG-lite progression in an action platformer where exploration is key to finding new areas and bosses to battle. Sundered, from Thunder Lotus Games, certainly fits the bill. And with its gorgeous hand-drawn art and animation, plus randomly generated environments and Rogue mechanics, it's also quite unlike any Metroidvania title we've played.

If you’re a fan of the Metroidvania experience then really, one look at Sundered should be enough to get you interested. The hand-drawn art and animation is often beautiful to look at, and the way in which it blends the industrial and gothic with fantasy and horror makes it all look quite unlike anything else currently available to play. The word Lovecraftian has been thrown around by some, and if I truly knew what that meant I’d probably be inclined to agree. Some of the creature designs are down-right creepy, as is the overall story that deals with themes of power and the sort of dark and evil corruption that feels otherworldly.
