    You owe it to yourself to give Hyper Light Drifter a go. It’s an incredible game with a wonderful look and feel to every part of it. It’s beautiful, looking great on the Switch’s screen, and can be surprisingly enveloping as an experience even as you take it to louder, crowded public areas. Every new area and experience was a delight to me, and I kept taking screenshots all the way through. It’s a challenge, but every moment was worth it.

    Hyper Light Drifter: Special Edition finally puts Heart Machine’s obtuse yet engaging throwback where it belongs - in portable Nintendo form - and it makes for the definitive version. With a handful of exclusive features, a two-year-old game suddenly feels new and fresh - and with a silky smooth frame rate and every boss, secret and upgrade from the original here for you to experience, the Nintendo Switch’s indie library just got even better.

    Hyper Light Drifter is an exciting and challenging action RPG game closer to Dark Souls than to The Legend of Zelda.

    With stunning visuals and music, Hyper Light Drifter: Special Edition is a delight to play - even if it means overcoming overwhelming odds.

    Hyper Light Drifter: Special Edition is fantastic–one of the best games on Switch indie or otherwise. You are doing yourself a disservice by not playing it. A wonderfully unique and ensnaring world boasting beautiful sounds and imagery is complemented perfectly by the incredibly smooth combat. On top of the portability and smooth performance, the special edition tune-up offers some peripheral new content for returning players such as new items and outfits. Abylight should be commended for this marvelous porting job, and Heart Machine deserves all of the praise they have received for this magnificent game.

    Indie games don't get much more memorable than Hyper Light Drifter and this Special Edition acts as a good excuse to finally play it if you haven't already. Just make sure you're ready for an intense challenge before taking the plunge.

    its racefully paced in combat and its a contemplative experience when exploring or encounter new things.

    i've never experienced a game that says so much but there is not a single word written in this game. You never read or hear someone speaking to you. You have to figure it out by yourself.
    I have goose bump just writing this short review.

    Wow, what a great game. I was a little afraid that it's one of those "Hipster graphic look" games that don't amount to much of a game, but IWow, what a great game. I was a little afraid that it's one of those "Hipster graphic look" games that don't amount to much of a game, but I was wrong. Great gameplay, great graphics, interesting worlds to explore... I love the "no words" approach, it doesn't make things easier, but hey...makes it all the more mysterious. Love it! Expand

You traverse through a world filled with new items and enemies to discover and the lack of hand holding really pushes the atmosphere and amplifies the feeling of discovering something new. However, where this game really falls short is its difficulty. I love challenging games, but Hyper Light Drifters challenge seems to be artificial and unfair. There were many points in the game where i had no idea why i died or what i died too which was really frustrating after dying multiple times on a given area having no idea what to do differently. After being hit you character is also stunned for a short period by certain attacks leaving him opened to get pummeled and essentially die in one hit. This type of difficulty is only made worse by the lack of tools you have to make quick in puts. After attacking with your sword, your character has serious lag before being able to attack or dash out of the way of an incoming attack. Furthermore, the difficulty spikes seem completely random. The first part of the game can contain areas much more difficult than the proceeding areas. It feels random whether the next room or boss will be difficult or not. (spoilers) An example of this is that the first boss of the game was very challenging compared to the second boss of the game which can easily be beaten on the first attempt. Overall, the atmosphere and theme of the game saves it from its lack of fair, fast paced gameplay Expand

    I really love this game - I played through the whole thing on PS4 and was excited to try the Switch version as it was advertised (and oftenI really love this game - I played through the whole thing on PS4 and was excited to try the Switch version as it was advertised (and often reviewed) as smooth 60FPS. This is very much not the case. Even walking around with no enemies on the screen is slightly jerky and in combat with lots going on the slowdowns are awful. I'm very disappointed. I've tried restarting my Switch as some have mentioned but it made no difference. I find it very odd that some people report no slowdowns at all and a lot of other people say it's stuttering all over the place. I would avoid this version. Expand
