Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is a gore packed adventure game that will keep players on their toes. The main hero, Celtic Senua, is charged with slashing her way to victory and there are plenty of bad guys to slice and dice in imaginative and often very graphic ways.
Get Ready for a Dark Adventure
However, anyone who has a dark sense of humour will quickly discover that Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is not all doom and gloom. There are plenty of quirky touches thrown into the mix, while the artwork is simply stunning and really helps to bring the game to life. the storyline is very detailed and helps to put players into the protagonists shoes and make this game much more than simply hacking and slashing. The combat sequences can feel very satisfying and completing them can bring on a real sense of achievement, although once gamers have figured out the puzzle structure it can feel rather repetitive and even a bit flat in the long run.
Making the Sacrifice
Although some gamers may find Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice to be a bit too dark and gruesome, other types of gamers are sure to be on the edge of their seats. There is plenty of dark imagery and innovative touches to get gamers hooked and help them overlook the fact that beneath the glitz and glamour there is not really very much substance.
