guip1408's Sundered (PC) review

A messy but fun metroidvania

Sundered is a 2D Metroidvania that came out around the same time as games like Hollow Knight and Dead Cells, making it be quickly forgettable by the community. I first saw Dan playing it on a Quick Look and thought it didn't look great. But then the game became available on Origin Access and decided to give it a shot. I ended up liking the game quite alot, had a lot of fun with it.

The game has some combat problems, the number of enemies you can have on screen is absurd and it can quickly just become a "spam button without seeing what's happening" type of thing, what makes it frustating some times. But that's it, that's the only negative point I can make about the game. I loved the abilities, they are all useful and the game has a ton of them, a really nice variety. The upgrade system is good enough, at around the last third of the game it becomes kind of hard to feel you're becoming stronger, it's more a mechanical improvement you have to have.

I really like the size of the bosses also, the enemy variety is also pretty decent. It's not a game that you be lost and don't know where to go, what sometimes can become frustating in a metroivania for me, you have a pretty clear map to see where to go next. The game runs perfectly and looks beautiful. I hope more people can try this game and see what they think, it feels really underrated. If you are a Metroidvania fan, check it out.
