"Soul Sacrifice, or “Keiji Inafune’s nightmarish fantasy” as it might as well have been called, promised to bring the wrath of 1000 demons to your software-starved PlayStation Vita. The creator of the colorful blue bomber has turned Gothic teenager with Soul Sacrifice, creating a game with a narrative so dark that it’s wonderful in its own poetically evil way.
In Soul Sacrifice, you play as a prisoner of the mad sorcerer Magusar after the world has come to an end. While there, Librom, a sentient book that possesses the knowledge of sorcery, comes into your possession and shares with you the knowledge and strength of sorcerers.
The story that’s held within Librom’s pages chronicles the memories of a sorcerer that was a great friend of Magusar before he went crazy, and through “Phantom Quests,” you will learn of their fate and how the world came to an end. Librom serves as a method to tell a dark story that I really enjoyed. Watching the game’s characters go from mildly crazy to... 7.5/10
