Ultros

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Ultros wows with its trippy visuals and unique gardening mechanics, but opinions split on its repetitive gameplay and easy difficulty. A visually stunning and unconventional Metroidvania, it may not click for everyone seeking classic depth.

Game Info

You wake up stranded, after seemingly crashing your ship on The Sarcophagus — a giant, space-drifting, cosmic uterus holding an ancient demonic being known as ULTROS. Trapped in the eternal loop of a black hole, you will have to explore The Sarcophagus and meet its inhabitants to understand the part you play. Are you the gruesome breaker of this cycle, or can you become a link from destruction to rebirth?

9/10

Ultros is a kaleidoscope game. It takes a handful of ordinary things, shakes them up and sticks the pieces together, and then spins it all around. It’s just a different version of what we’ve seen dozens of times before, sure. But it feels special, and it sure does look good.

8/10

Expect to be confused, bewildered, and visually seduced by Ultros, but don’t expect to be too surprised by what simmers beneath the surface.

4.5/5 stars

Just when you thought Ultros couldn’t get any more outlandish, it has its own gardening system.
