290

I've heard good things about the game so I'm excited to play it.

Discussions about the game from previous posts.

Game Description

  • From the makers of Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and DmC: Devil May Cry, comes a warrior’s brutal journey into myth and madness.

  • Set in the Viking age, a broken Celtic warrior embarks on a haunting vision quest into Viking Hell to fight for the soul of her dead lover.

  • Created in collaboration with neuroscientists and people who experience psychosis, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will pull you deep into the melancholic fury of Senua’s shattered mind.

    For better immersion, playing with headphones is a must!

    Played it through on Switch out of curiousity when it launched there and can say that this is one of my favourite games ever.

    Although it's not a game for everyone. A lot of walking, listening and trying to figure out some puzzles that don't tend to explain themselves very clearly.

      Doesn't sound that great tbh

        Hence, not for everyone. For me, this was great. A fine artistic look at the life of someone suffering with psychosis, but also an enjoyable journey through audio with great fight scenes and a true sense of accomplishment.

    One of my favourite games this gen.

    At best, is describe it as a basic hack and slash with an amazing story and acting.

    At worst, a walking simulator with basic fighting and an amazing story and acting.

    Some of the best audio design ever.

    Will also be the last time you see this developer on PlayStation as Microsoft bought them.

      They still ported this game to the Switch after the Microsoft acquisition so not necessarily the last time on Playstation

    Played Enjoyed and Finished.

    Good Story! but the gameplay might be a bit too bland for some, as the actual gameplay is simple

    if you are after something that will last 10 hours with a linear story to breakup open world games, this might be it.

    No leveling up, Simple combat Block/attack/heavy attack, No equipping items or weapons

      7-8 hours tops

      In other words, all the basic elements that used to make games a fun activity before the scourge of grinding, micro transactions, milking as much cash as possible out of gamers and getting them addicted to a product became the status quo.

    Bought this yesterday at 6pm, next thing I know it’s 2am.
    Great game and some AAA titles need to rethink their quality because this puts them to shame
    Under $18 is not a bargain but a complete steal

    It's pretty, but that's about it. Combat is weaker than other combat games, puzzles are weaker than other puzzle games. It's a mix of both, for the casual gamer (or one that doesn't have much time, and wants to be able to drop in and out for a 30 minute session).

    •  

      so with you on that.

      If you went in thinking it was going to be a combat or puzzle game, it's no wonder you were disappointed, because it is neither of those things. Sure, it has combat and puzzle elements, but at it's core it's an atmospheric, psychological, story rich adventure. It's more an experience than a game.

        More an experience than a game is a good way to sum it up.

        A nice way to test out a new 4k screen and GPU without having to try very hard is another way, and what I appreciated the "game" for.

        Until I got stuck on some bridge building part towards the end and idgaf anymore.

        •  

          Those bridge puzzles really weren't that difficult

          SPOILERS

          You approach the bridges from certain angles to make them appear. If you can't find the correct angle, use the archways that have already been established earlier in the game to change perspectives.

    For $18 this is an absolute STEAL. You will remember playing this game long after you have forgotten many others.

    Looks like a good game

    For those who have played it, how does the PS4 Pro Version stack up against the XBOX ONE X version?

    Haven't played this game for a long time.
