    Meh

    I tried to get into it, but I couldn't. It's just plain boring. Its tone is pretentious, but it fails to say anything of substance; the surroundings are uninspiring; the combat is simplistic, if flashy; the puzzles slow ... Read Full Review

    Why is this a game?

    I tried to play this game for an hour and I couldn't make to the one hour mark. Played for about 40 minutes. The first section of the game is one long and particular boring boat ride where you can control the camera mid... Read Full Review

    Great atmosphere and acting, but combat is subpar

    The good: Very nice audio creating the creepy atmosphere with horror undertones. Acting of the main character is good.The bad: Combat is extremely repetitive with very few types of enemies. Their combat style is the sam... Read Full Review

    Relentlessly grim and depressing

    Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is a relentlessly grim and depressing look into psychosis/schizophrenia of a viking girl as she descends toward madness following the death of her lover (I think that's the general jist of it... Read Full Review
