How to NOT make a Metroidvania - Sundered Review

This is my review of Sundered. As you can guess by the title, I don't think it's very good, but it DOES have a lot of really good ideas. In the end though, in spite of the good ideas and the beautiful art style, I'm convinced that this is how to NOT make a Metroidvania.

Resist or Embrace
Sundered is a horrifying fight for survival and sanity, a hand­-drawn epic from the ​creators of ​​Jotun. It is a replayable metroidvania where you resist or embrace ancient eldritch powers. You play Eshe, a wanderer in a ruined world, trapped in ever-­changing caverns filled with hordes of terrifying enemies. Harness the power of corrupted relics to defeat gigantic bosses, at the cost of your humanity. Resist or embrace.

Key Features
- Beautiful hand­-drawn art and animation
- Terrifyingly epic boss fights
- Unique abilities that may be powerfully corrupted… at a cost
- Hundreds of upgrades and multiple character builds
- Dynamic encounters against hordes of enemies
- A mix of hand-crafted & procedural levels
- Multiple endings and over 15 hours of gameplay

Core Gameplay
Explore.
Delve into a procedurally generated dungeon at the heart of a beautiful hand-drawn world. Classic Metroidvania elements such as backtracking, secrets and unlocking new abilities that open new regions are at the core of the exploration experience.

Fight.
Confront hordes of dynamically spawned eldritch monsters. Put your skills and reflexes to the test through furious melee combat and epic boss fights against uniquely designed enemies. All monster spawns are dynamic, constantly keeping you on your toes.

Die.
Designed as a challenging adventure for seasoned gamers, frequent deaths are part of the Sundered experience. But taking our inspiration from our favorite rogue-like games, death in Sundered is only the beginning.

Upgrade.
When you die, you respawn in the Hub, where you level up and customize your character. Equip and upgrade a host of unique Perks, stats and special Abilities hidden throughout the world.

A Re-Review of Sundered Two Years Later - STILL Not How to Make a Metroidvania

So I played Sundered again. And this time I beat it. This review is a little informal... but procedural metroidvanias are still not very good.

Sundered - All Bosses [No HP Damage]

Sundered on Steam:

Difficulty: Hard (2/3)

Bosses in video:

[00:00] 1. Model LutherX09 - Deviant Meteoroid
[01:45] 2. Arlie Waylon - Fallen Valkyrie Panzer
[03:48] 3. Dominion
[09:06] 4. Phaztu Othaloth - Fallen Eschaton Priest
[10:37] 5. Quietus Ternion - Eschaton Devotees
[12:37] 6. Hysteria
[18:13] 7. Itacha Chol & Bhaloli Sael-Yot - Fallen Echaton Priestesses
[19:34] 8. Llaeyea Yi-Bot - Fallen Eschaton High Priest
[20:27] 9. Herald of Ruin - Corrupted Sentinel
[21:46] 10. Cnidaria - Valkyrie Overseer
[24:03] 11. Hiram Macias - Fallen Valkyrie Hunter
[27:16] 12. Legion & Salvation
[32:32] 13. Eshe
[33:21] 14. Humanity
[38:21] 15. Nyarlathotep
[42:48] 16. Nyarlathotep & The Shining Trapezohedron

So in Sundered you have a shield which absorbs damage and regenerates after some time. If it takes too much damage, it will break and you're going to be vulnerable. In this video I'm trying to keep the shield up instead of avoiding everything like usual. Some of the attacks will break it with one hit, so I still have to be careful.

Sundered’s 3 Hidden Elder Shard Fragment Locations

I completed Sundered before learning there were hidden elder shard fragments, which are required to upgrade all 7 skills and for some of the achievements.

Map screenshots for the shard locations can be found here:

In the first region below the main hub, before the area’s boss and Sundered’s first main boss (not the minibosses) in the room with tons of lasers, in the top left corner is the first hidden elder shard fragment.

In the second region to the left of the main hub, go to the top of the extremely tall large cervase and slide down the right wall. You will go through a hidden wall to find the second hidden elder shard fragment.

In the third region to the right of the main hub, take the elevator all the way straight up, and just outside to the left of the top elevator stop is a hook. Follow that hook upwards to find the third hidden elder shard fragment.

Quick and Dirty SUNDERED ELDRITCH EDITION Review

Sundered Eldritch Edition Quick and Dirty Review by Frank
#Sundered #QuickAndDirty #UGS
A metroidvania platformer which is light on the puzzles but heavy on the action. Features skill trees, impressive and challenging bosses, lots of secrets, and an interesting upgrade system which culminates in three distinct endings with three unique end battles. Since the maps are procedurally generated every time you leave base and since dying respawns you back at base, get ready to repeat a lot of the early areas often as you level up. But once you gain some proficiency with movement/fighting and obtain some key upgrades, you will be treated to a large and challenging world to overcome.

There are also some conveniences which make 100 percenting the game a lot easier, like the upgrade which shows secret locations and treasure and passages that when unlocked will greatly shorten your path to your destination.

Lastly, the game also features local co-op for up to 4 players which smartly balances aspects of having more than one player on the map.

4.5/5
Pros
-Visuals, story telling, boss battles, secrets, unique gameplay, local co-op option, and multiple endings
Cons
-Obtuse loading screen tips and spartan map

Sundered [Full Corruption/Embrace Path] Final Boss

Played the fight against my shadow self (One with white cannon shots) rather safe, & the fight against Humanity a bit recklessly at the start, trying to do quick damage and figure out his patterns. but in the end scraped by. Rather overwhelming 2nd phase I've not quite figured yet.

Perks are of course very important, this was my third time facing the boss and was toying with different sets, this one being non-ideal but nonetheless effective in the end.

Shields are pretty much a necessity, so look into those perks, in particular Shield converter coupled with Shield flasks. Shield overdrive also, but not as necessary and better replaced with a melee perk, ie. Sharp Edge (+30 melee damage). Boss can be beaten perk free if skilled enough, these are simply my personal findings and there are many available builds for one to tailor for their play-style. For anyone wondering equipped perks are:
Shield overcharge- Constant shield regeneration at a loss of 60% regen. speed
Tough Skin- +14 Armor, reduces Cannon power by 35%
Sharp Edge- +30 melee dmg, at cost of 30% health.
