Guacamelee! Review (Chomp on This Gaming)

"When Metroid was released back on the NES, it introduced a different style of side scrolling platforming. There was a large focus on navigating left, right, up and down the screen and exploring to acquire new abilities to reach even more places. Later Castlevania adopted this same style of game for the 2D titles. The name “Metroidvania” was given to this type of game. These games were generally large with a lot to find and are known for back tracking to previously visited locations. Guacamelee! is a game that approaches this style of game, and well, it just seems to fall short when compared to Metroid. Though it is enjoyable, the game just isn’t that great." - Scott Fawcett (Guacamelee, PC, PS Vita, PS3) 7.2/10

Yeah, any website that says this game "isn't that great" and rates it less than an 8 out of 10 just loses all credibility with me...
