    Hollow is a good horror game inspired by great games like Alien: Isolation and Resident Evil Revelations. However, the game sins by executing mechanics like melee combat, for example. Although the graphics are excellent and it has an excellent atmosphere, the weird movement of the enemies makes the game look odd at times. The game is frightening at times when you walk alone on the ship listening to voices succumbing to the dark, you do get some scares, but it is not frequent. The gameplay is within the standards of the current horror games. Despite its problems, Hollow is a highly recommended game for horror fans and games like Resident Evil Revelations and Alien: Isolation.

    A horror game with good ideas that comes up short in many aspects: while its history is addictive and progressively improves, its short duration brings us back to reality, and while its setting and sound put us in a tense mood with some jump scares mixed in, its technical side takes us out of that mood with a significant range of defects to be cleaned up.

    Hollow could have gone further and cemented itself as a good proposal in the growing horror genre within the Nintendo Switch and it gets the ambiance right, including the good use of sound effects. It does not succeed at all it could, unfortunately, as its heavy and cumbersome gameplay, losses of fluidity and several technical issues end up plaguing the experience, whose plot is also too generic and unremarkable to make this a memorable horror game.

    Hollow is an incredibly ugly game with the kind of plentiful technical issues that make it actively difficult to play. Those with a masochistic streak might derive some pleasure from its abrasiveness and its downbeat tone, but most Switch-owning horror fans would be much better served playing through Resident Evil Revelations and its sequel for the umpteenth time.

    As far as space-set survival horror games go, Hollow sets the standard for a new low.

    Hollow, as a game, is an effective horror experience plagued by some poor goal communication with the player. It has clear issues but at its core, Hollow is a technically impressive game built on generally good gameplay. As a port to Switch, this game is unfortunately an abysmal mess.

    It's a B-grade Dead Space clone that follows the "rules" of horror without actually understanding any of them. Sure, it's a good thing that developers want to continue that "horror in space" tradition of Dead Space, but this team simply wasn't up to the task. On any level.

    a lot of hate for a game that's soundwise perfect and atmospheric its not as awful hands on hey I liked for what it is and I loved Elex soa lot of hate for a game that's soundwise perfect and atmospheric its not as awful hands on hey I liked for what it is and I loved Elex so there you go its movement grates you move way to slow theres little ammo the map is hard to follow at times but exploring is fun to do and the puzzles good once you work them out
    the story well... the story is not bad at all I liked it
    it ran smooth played well and the gunplay wasn't too bad sure could've been worse but some gripes
    cant outweigh the fact I had fun and that's where it counts
    its not overpriced a good thing id recommend it
    it gets an 8 because above all it was fun to play once I got used to it

    I think Hollow is the perfect example of a game that can divide opinions. It's a horror game about a guy exploring a ship going through a bitI think Hollow is the perfect example of a game that can divide opinions. It's a horror game about a guy exploring a ship going through a bit of a crisis. It's not a perfect game, and while I was turned off the first 10 or 15 minutes I started playing it, I eventually got used to the mechanics and ended up enjoying it. The biggest con in my book is that the movement is slow. You can click the left analog stick to run, and by run, I mean move at a decent walking pace. Thankfully, you can "run" indefinitely, although when the main character speaks, the speed reverts to "slow as a crawl" until the dialog is completed. Also, they use a lot of screen effects that while sometimes cool, can also be a bit distracting, and overdone. Unlike most indie horror titles, you actually can fight back in this game, and that is a big plus for me. Yes, ammo is limited, but a well placed headshot will take out the more common enemies. Aiming to get that headshot is a bit clunky, and definitely takes some getting used to. Really, that's the main thing I experienced with this game, and it is also why I liked it the longer I played it. Once you get good at managing the movement, and combat, Hollow can be an enjoyable game. I heard that the game suffered framerate dips for some people, but I didn't have any (in docked or handheld mode), and if they did happen, I didn't notice them. I will state the disclaimer that I have no problem with games that run at 30FPS, So maybe that has something to do with how I perceived the experience. All in all, Hollow is an OK horror game for the Switch, and if you have already played Resident Evil Revelations, and are looking for another horror game where you don't have to constantly run and hide, maybe check this one out. In full disclosure, I picked this game up for under $10 during a sale, and I feel like I got my moneys worth. At it's full price of $20, it's a much harder sell. Expand

    It's suspicious that the 10/10 reviews are from the same day, anyway, this game is awful, it has so much film grain that it's hard to seeIt's suspicious that the 10/10 reviews are from the same day, anyway, this game is awful, it has so much film grain that it's hard to see whats interactive and whats part of the decoration, the puzzles are bad and frustrating, movement is uber slow, ammo is extremely scarse, if you combine that with the fact that you can barely see stuff on the ground to pick up and that the melee attack doesn't kill enemies and you can't outrun them.
    Worst part of this game: there are no refunds on the nintendo eshop.
