Soul Sacrifice Review | RPGamer

RPGamer: "Soul Sacrifice is a noble first effort from Inafune and company to fill the Monster Hunter void, but it can't quite match the addictive depth of that series. The combat is fun and challenging, but a lack of variety hurts it a great deal. The story is engrossing and paints a fascinating world, but often feels disconnected from the actual gameplay. The game doesn't provide much incentive to grind through lots of battles, but a sharp difficulty curve in single player necessitates just this to level up. This is a game of contradictions, about sacrificing and saving, but unfortunately this extends to the very core of the game itself. Every great element of the game is hampered in some way, as if the developers had to sacrifice some potential to make the game happen. Soul Sacrifice is a fine game, but it could have been brilliant." (PS Vita, Soul Sacrifice) 3.5/5
