Pro-tip: Hold forwards, Tap the controller randomly. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Exactly this... always push forward, if nothing happens, press a button to maybe move something that is in your path.

In combat, close your eyes and press X and Y from time to time and you'll be fine.

I never played through a more boring game.
Really hopes something would evolve or happen throughout the 5 hours I spent, but damn it's hollow.

Agreed, the game was a slog!!

I finished it just to experience the visuals, that's the only stand out, everything else fell flat.

It's even worse when you know it's been in development for 7 years. It's like what were they doing in all those years

Indeed, pushing forward is excellent advice for a walking simulator.

Why do the edges of the characters look smeared or something?

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.

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.

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.

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