I loved Hollow Knight with its Metroidvania layout and utterly unique art style, but Christopher Larkin's incredible soundtrack elevates to truly top tier videogame perfection.
Haunting, melancholic, beautiful, and powerful, it really pushes the atmosphere, with some tracks being all bombast and bluster for boss fights, whereas others create a sombre ambience designed to tug at the heartstrings. Resting Grounds and City of Tears being prime examples of this.
Wonderful stuff. Mark Bartholomew
