HunterX is an action-adventure game full of spirited battles. Use various styles of weapons and magic to experience your own fighting style and explore a great world. If you enjoy semi-challenging metroidvanias this may be for you. The controls are tight and the bosses aren’t complete pushovers. Normal enemies can even get the better of you if you don’t respect them. The music ranges from good to great. The English translation is not the best at release but it’s passable. A full playthrough took me about 11 hours and I had no major bugs or crashes, rare these days. Overall, a hidden gem among the pile of indie trash. For 15 bucks you could do worse. But, you could also do significantly better. I was snagged by a lot of early reviews comparing this game to Castlevania. Having grown up playing the games for an ungodly amount of hours on the NES and migrating to the “metroidvania” genre when the series did, I’ll clear up the air that anybody making a comparison to this game and Castlevania are severely mistaken. The closest similarity in every bit of the game that I had played that were anything more than surface level were ironically the floating skulls which had patterns similar to Medusa heads. Enemies that both games have, such as a warewolf are also massively different. Where in Castlevania it is an extremely agile enemy, in Hunter X it’s merely a hulking brute.
Hard to describe but it feels like a lost classic ps2 game, in a very good way. I love it. Soundtrack is great, it pulls no punches. A fine peice of art that manages to capture that feel that the certain PS2 games have flawlessly. I am constantly questioning if this was some hidden old gem of a game that some big publisher decided to release on steam, but it actually was made and released this year! Congrats on the team for making such a fun game that really feels like nothing I have played before but feels like a classic I missed out on growing up. 10/10 a must try. The attack and movement is obviously a big difference. No jump diagonal attacking to be found here. The weapons are all near universally the same. Picking up a mace does not give you a mace’s moveset as it would in Castlevania, it uses the same bog standard attack animation. Enemy attacks and boss damage eventually enter a territory to which no amount of health upgrades will enable you to survive a combo if you can’t escape the juggle state due to depleted stamina. The game draws extremely heavy inspiration from the souls series of games. The combat and exploration are massively underwhelming for a metroidvania. Teleport locations are sparsely placed throughout the zones that make the game a chore to backtrack. A feature mercifully kept lightweight due to the limited exploration in the first place. The maps are unimaginative slogs through gauntlets of enemies which themselves almost exclusively exist to be killed and all of which take slightly more damage than they should.
