F.I.S.T. Review - If You Love Metroidvanias, You Owe This Game a Chance | Zyro-EG

Jason says, "I’ll put this as simple as possible: if you love Metroidvanias, you owe this game a chance. I think there might be some anti-China subtleties to how people view this game, but I ignore politics around here. If you do, you’ll find this game has a competent brawler-fighter hybrid combat system that just aches for you to get better at it, challenging platforming that nets you that single drop of sweat, and keeps you applying your skills dynamically. And while its campaign lacks any replayability, it’s definitely a solid length for the price. It’s unfortunate, then, that it makes no use of the PS5, and is held back by its budget when it comes to animations and environmental diversity. That didn’t keep me from thoroughly enjoying it, though."

This game is awesome! I platinum’d both the PS5 and PS4 versions since there’s two separate lists. By far one of the best MetroidVanias out there in recent times. It’s also not a rogue or soulslike which I prefer in an MV.

Nice I've been waiting for this game. Definitely giving it a chance.

Loved this game although that last boss fight nearly killed the experience for me. I must have died 30 times.

There aren't any games coming out yet, even third party? That being a weak lineup is just reflecting on the quiet summer we about to have.
