Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice Review

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is an action-adventure game filled with dark fantasy. It hard to believe they developed the game with 20 developers. The game is published and developed by Ninja theory which has done a damn good job.

Reborngamers Review :

Hellblade Senua's sacrifice is awesome. This game is not your traditional horror stuff, but it will play with your mind, its target is to mingle with the human psychology which will be more terrifying. That makes the game creepy and amazing.

The title of the game pretty much tells the story of the game.The plot of the game will start as Senua (Celtic Warrior). The Vikings have destroyed her village and sacrificed her lover to the Norse Gods. The quest for Senua is to get her lovers soul back from the goddess Hela.During her duration through hell Senua has her mental breakdown, visions, hallucinations everything there is related to psychology. Ninja theory has consulted with A professor of the Cambridge University to implement the theory. It is absolutely creepy it will touch your mind, it's just that good. The voices are constant, they will advise, warn, make you panic and will be heard.

The visual effects in this game are terrific. The close third person view will make the players hear the voices in their minds.The mystical land revolves around the Norse legend. The game's visuals and lighting are good in a creepy way. The audio design just complements the previous two. The game has puzzles to open doors or to track down a god of tricks, it will not bog you down, whereas these are the times when the creepy fear creeps into your mind.

The combat of this game is just spectacular, the variety of enemies to face and the bosses just amazes us. Ninja Theory has given us a game which is powerful in combat. The enemies will be tough, it will not be a cakewalk. The AI is consistent and intelligent. It will taunt you and you will respect it. The bosses are even harder with spectacular variety.  The focus system in this game is amazing, considering you have to figure it first, then it's just really fun.

But we felt the lack of tutorials in this game, it's not only the combat the whole game doesn’t have a tutorial so the player has to figure it themselves. But once the player figures the combat combos and the puzzles this game turns to be a visual treat. There is no way of the player knowing how many health bars they have lost or remaining, but the distortions of the screen will let you know the health bar as you begin to familiarize with it. The duration of the game will be short but we can expect more from the development team in the future.

Verdict :

A game which has a powerful character and storyline to back it up. Its creepy, elegant combat, beautiful visuals, and lightings complimented with its sound make this game A Unique experience.It is one of the best games of 2017. Senua's sacrifice is worth it.
