Soul Sacrifice Demo Impressions | STFUandPlay

Soul Sacrifice (ソウル・サクリファイス! pronounced Souru Sakurifaisu!) is an action role-playing video game developed by Marvelous AQL and Japan Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment exclusively for the PlayStation Vita. The game starts off telling a story of with slave that serves a powerful and cruel sorcerer. Now I’m not going to go in depth when it comes to the story I will save that for the review this is just my first impressions on what I though of this demo that was provided for us.

Extremely addictive game with awesome power customization.

The online component worked flawlessly for me since demo was released and was alot of fun.

Being able to still have a hand in combat even after death is an awesome idea.

Loved that mechanic. Tap your enemies to death! >:)

You know you don't do damage right?

If you end up in this situation you can do 2 things.

If you press on a enemy with your finger you lower their defense.

If you press on a teammate, you increase their attack.

There is a bar that always regenerates, this is how long you can use this after-death ability. You do not have to tap, you can also press and hold for as along as you want or are allowed.

@Rezzah you sir are correct. Oh but I hate being sacrificed only to realize the boss monster still has 75+% of its health.

Agree im addicted to it. The only thing I have to complain is that when running the camera rotation should've attach to the left stick (movement) because when im not running straight it's impossible to see where im going, I don't know if im running to a wall or a monster.

I have no problem with the camera after getting use to it. Try using lock-on more, it makes things a lot easier.

ThanatosDMC2009d ago

^There are spell in which you'll notice are odds with the camera. It's fairly annoying.

Th4Freak2009d ago (Edited 2009d ago )

@Kalowest That's not my problem, i'll give you an example. In the chapter 6, sometimes Sortiara uses a lightning sphere that chase so obviously i can't run to her because the sphere would hit me so i have to run to the opposite way, in that moment I have to keep A pressed because otherwise the sphere would catch me so in consequence i can't rotate the camera to see where im going.

ThanatosDMC2009d ago

Really damn good game. The story is solide and especially the lore. Sky vs Earth; Good vs Greed. The lore is so well done.

I hate the voice for the book though compared to the japanese version. It's not demonic or evil sounding enough. The other characters' voices are fine though.

Nicaragua2009d ago

Agreed, the book sounds like a right geezer. Not exactly what i would expect from a demonic scripture.
