Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice might not have the best combat or puzzles in the genre, but it is hard to beat in terms of storytelling and immersion. There are not many other games on the market that can hold a candle to it when it comes to visuals and animation, while the way it realistically portrays psychosis is also groundbreaking. The game still features plenty of combat, but it is not the primary focus, so players expecting something closer to previous Ninja Theory titles will probably be a little disappointed. However, if you can appreciate something with a strong narrative focus and willingness to tackle subjects that few others dare, then Hellblade is your game.
Gameplay: The combat and puzzles are a bit weak, but the overall experience is superb.
Graphics: Although the game is very bleak overall, the detail and animations are top notch.
Sound: This is definitely a game that must be played with headphones thanks to the awesome binaural sounds
