Cultured Vultures: Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is undoubtedly one of the best games of the generation. Ryan is here to explain why.
I platinumed it. Combat: Boring, bland and basic Gameplay: Basic and bare bones This game was always supposed to be about Character and story. That is where this game shined. It's the story and the struggle of Senua with her inner Demons, that's what made the game great.
Agree with everything you said about the combat and gameplay, the story was the only thing that kept me playing. I wouldnt say its anywhere near one of tue top games of the generation but i enjoyed it for what it was.
I agree on all points too. The premise was interesting though and the way they explored her mental health. It was very shallow but I'm glad I ran through it anyway, because it was a cool experience, just not much of a game.
I too platinumed it, I turned the combat to easy to get through it do I could see the story, which was quite interesting. I wouldn't go so far as to call it 'one of the best games of the generation' though. It was alright though.
Yeah no, it was decent at best
The standout things in this game were its story, and it's development process of experimenting new techniques to try and get AAA results on an indy budget which i think is a very useful example for future indy and lower budget developers.
Still not played this looks an excellent story game. The new game on xbox really is a decent exclusive imo
combat was lacking but not too boring just very simplistic , but as others have stated you played this more for the story.
Is this a joke?
Absolutely not a game of the generation.
What I liked: The story, the ambiance, the overall theme. The combat was okay, but it wasn't a big focus. They were going for the puzzle solving, mental illness thing. The combat was filler. Hopefully, this time around (with a bigger budget) this will be an AAA and not an AA.
Interesting indie+ game for the subject it address, and nice graphics, but no contender for Game of the gen by far. I have the feeling a lot of people discussing this game never played it and believe it is some kind of Horizon like ARPG just based on its graphics. I only hope Ninja Theory didn’t burn its wings with the marketing BS they have been involved on SX, and that Hellblade 2 will have more than graphics to proposed. First game didn’t felt like a sequel was pertinent.
This game was really special
I finished the game and I like it because of the story but the combat and game play is very basic. While it was a good game no way I consider it to be one of the best games of the generation.
To each his/her own i guess!? I could agree with the article. What made the game great for me was the immersion of sound throughout the game. Senua's inner thoughts throughout the whole game. From fear, to confidence (I loved countering and deflecting moves and hearing Senua's thoughts saying the opponent was no match for us) ,to torment when running towards the light to not have the darkness consume you. I am excited to see what a bigger budget and a larger team will do in the sequel.
I downloaded it on game pass on my pc, played for like 2hrs, got bored and just uninstalled the game.. (graphics where nice, but felt boring to play)
It was a cool game. But, I wouldn't call it a game of the generation.
n4g never disappoints
Good game for $10 but not higher.
The game was great until it reach Microsoft
