I liked SotN but coming to it after having played several other Metroidvanias it didn't have the full impact it should have. The sense of scale is something unrivaled in the others but the balance is a bit wonky. I suppose I should replay it under some special conditions, even if they have to be self imposed.

The Metroidvanias get flack for being easy and mindless compared to the classics but playing on hard mode with level caps in the games that have it makes me think not all of that criticism is justified.
