This is a game that wears its Hollow Knight inspiration on its sleeve and joins the rank of the rare platforming-focused Metroidvanias. I've described it multiple times as "Kaizo Hollow Knight" and I think that's far from a flaw. It is excellent at following up on your mastery of HK mechanics, proposing a massive new world to explore and overall a way more challenging experience both in platforming and boss fights while keeping similar movement (it does also feature an easier difficulty that I've heard is closer to its inspiration).
Still Aeterna Noctis manages to be its own thing by switching up the level design frequently, introducing different physics and platforming elements depending on the biome, and introduces an important mechanic at around the midway point that changes how you approach platforming in a way that feels challenging and rewarding.
The game also features gorgeous hand draw environments and great use of lighting, although the MC does look a bit janky amongst them (probably for clarity reasons). The soundtrack is decent and while the story isn't anything special I found the dialogue pretty well written and funny at times.
Overall I had a fantastic experience with it and will look forward to what Aeternum studios has in store next for us metroidvania fans. Highly recommended for those who want more Hollow Knight and are not scared of challenging experiences.

A good time and a fun adventure. Takes a lot of inspiration from zelda (mostly gameplay-wise, plays pretty much exactly like the old top down zeldas) and Earthbound/Mother 3 (story-wise and visual style) so I'd recommend it to those who like the series. It's a game that's definitely more of a journey and you're better off trying to enjoy that instead of thinking too much about the whole thing because the larger plot confuses itself and the gameplay stays very simple.
The characters are fun, the soundtrack is an absolute banger and it has some of the best pixel art I've seen so I'll definitely take some of that with me, but the game isn't anything crazy overall.

Fantastic game, it feels like someone took the things I liked about breath of the wild and made a more focused experience about them.
It really is all about exploration, the world is vast and as you make your way around it you'll find places holding simple puzzles which reward you with emblems that allow you to unlock the next areas. Traversal is fast and fun which really helps with the usual boredom of moving across an open world (you go faster by hitting targets scattered across the map). The game also has overall straight amazing presentation (which was to be expected from the abzu devs) with epic spectacle bosses, great mongolian soundtrack and while the story is kept simple it still gets good emotional moments especially since it does such a great job of making you connect with your eagle companion (game has actual petting mechanics).
My only gripe with it really is that the puzzles can get pretty repetitive after a while, and I imagine that would be even worse if you go for 100% (although I believe the game isn't intended at all for that). Also the price tag seems a little high for a game that takes about ~6 hours to finish, so grab it on sale if you can.
I had a lot of fun with it and recommend it to pretty much anyone as long as you like open world exploration.
