This game would've done better as a VR exclusive.

A small team of people slaved for so many years making a single player story game with no micro transactions or multiplayer (thank god) as a sequel to an indie passion project and y'all just roast it without playing it because it's on the XBox. The N4G hated of this game is one of the lamest and saddest things I've seen on here this generation, honestly

If HB2 was multi plat, y'all would be swooning over this game arguing about which console looks and plays better. Buncha cringe children on here

It is the same as the first game. You don't need to have played it to judge it.

"If HB2 was multi plat, y'all would be swooning over this game arguing about which console looks and plays better. Buncha cringe children on here"

I'm being optimistic that this part of your comment is intentional irony. The adjectives and emotion make it a bit comical.

Next, I'm being sincere. It would have done better as a VR exclusive.

Now, you are that people that work years on VR games is irrelevant because it's VR, which is what you are angry about.

Microsoft will bring it to PlayStation later but they will find that emulating Sony's PC strategy won't work on consoles. You have a window of hype for consoles and if you are out of that window it effects sales massively. As can be evidenced with games like Hi-Fi Rush. That would have sold a boat load more had it launched at the same time.

Y’know, this game would make my eyes melt and head explode Raiders of the Lost Ark style if I could play this in VR.

ChasterMies30d ago

This will be great when it comes to PSVR2.

Played the whole game in VR in a 6 hour sitting with the UEVR PC mod and it worked very well! The graphic fidelity with the cinematic experience made it magical like when I played VR for the first time!

They can learn not to do boring games 🫢

jznrpg8d ago (Edited 8d ago )

If you go for a graphic type game you better have a great story like Heavy Rain or have some good gameplay. Can’t make a game with amazing graphics but nothing to make you want to continue playing it.

PrinceOfAnger8d ago

What good gameplay in Death stranding , Detroit , heavy rain, until dawn ? you call press X to continue " cutscenes" fun games? I am sorry these are movie games or "tech-demos" too!

But i know some like this type of games.
Maybe Hellblade is not for you?

Every game you mentioned with the exception of Until Dawn I played to the very end & enjoyed them. I can't say that about Hellblade 2. I only played 2 hours which I forced myself to & I haven't gone back to it since & that was 2 weeks ago.

MrNinosan8d ago

You obviously didn't play Death Stranding.
And even Detroit, Heavy Rain, Beyond two Souls and Until Dawn is far more gameplay than Hellblade.

mkis0078d ago

You just mentioned a goty winner...are you only able to see the surface of things. Not capable of looking deeper?

P_Bomb8d ago

All those games had more gameplay or story than Hellblade 2. I’m still in ch.4 where I stalled out of boredom.

repsahj8d ago

I platinumed Detroit because of engaging story and gameplay dude.

andy858d ago

Detroit was outstanding storywise. How can you compare that? I played through it 4 times for different story paths

isarai8d ago

Good lord u made yourself look stupid, painfully obvious you haven't played any of those games.

Good game design and designers are important.

Reaper22_8d ago

Hellblade 2 was good. I enjoyed the story and it's a real looker. Best looking game I've ever played.
