Axiom Verge is a metroidvania inspired by the first Metroid. It's quite ugly, and graphics are very repetitive, music is agressive, there are too many weapons, and bosses are absolutely uninteresting.

But the level design is really good through and through, you're never lost long, and the levels are full of secrets. The gameplay is good, very tight and precise, the enemies are varied, the story is interesting, and the "glitch gun" is a very good and original idea. The game is not very hard on normal difficulty.

If you can go past the ugliness and the agressive soundtrack, Axiom Verge is a very good metroidvania.
