Sometimes the task of reviewing certain games falls into a difficult space. Objectivity is key and you need to remember that flaws can’t simply be overlooked just because a game is fun. On the other hand, depending on the type of game in question the fun level can be one of it’s most important facets. Soul Sacrifice falls into this category. This game has many… many flaws but stick with it and underneath you will find one of the Vita’s most addictive and enjoyable games to date.
Soul Sacrifice is huge. We are talking Monster Hunter levels of huge. At a guess I would say there are over 150 missions in the game. It’s worth noting that unlike Monster Hunter the missions in Soul Sacrifice are not quite as varied. While Monster Hunter offers up hunts, fetch quests, captures and exploration based missions most of Soul Sacrifice’s quests boil down to “Go kill shit…”. This is not necessarily a bad thing, when killing monsters is this much fun. I’ve talked at length about the games mechanics in a previous post so I’ll won’t be diving into them again… -
