Die Umstellung auf den Grafikkarten shadercache hat hier die Probleme behoben.

Ein Spiel mit wunderschöner Grafik!
Die Story ist gut! Das Puzzeln ist auch in Ordnung!
Das Kampfsystem manchmal verwirrend, da der Kamerawinkel oft blöd ist.

Das Making Of ist der Hammer!

Mehr kann man hierzu eigentlich nicht mehr sagen.

Bin gespannt auf den nächsten Teil.

Ich finde das Spiel (leider) nicht gut.

Es ist m.E. eben nicht eine atmosphärisch und psychologisch tiefgründige Reise einer Keltin in die Welt von Mythen und Wahn, sondern viel mehr im wesentlichen eine Aneinanderreihung von Arenakämpfen, aufgelockert durch Suchaufgaben und Sprints.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2112734549

Das sehr lange Intro ließ mich hoffen, eine interessante Reise miterleben zu dürfen. Von den Stimmen in Senuas (oder Senua's) Kopf habe ich ja schon gehört, so dass ich die Kopfhörer auf hatte wie empfohlen. Tatsächlich hört man die Stimmen von allen Seiten, was sehr gut gemacht ist.

Um verschlossene Tore aufzubekommen, muss Senua in den ansonsten eher schlauchartigen Leveln die Umgebung nach Formen absuchen, die vorgegebenen Runen gleichen. Erinnerte mich an The Witness und war nicht schlecht und nicht trivial.

Ab und an muss man auch etwas sprinten, um ein (vermutliches) Zeitlimit einzuhalten. Das war relativ nett und harmlos.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2112733350

Schlimm waren die Kämpfe. In der Hauptsache ist das Spiel eine Aneinanderreihung von Arenakämpfen. Ja, ich bin, was Kämpfe angeht, eher ein Freund von Shootern und hier muss man mit dem Schwert angreifen, blocken oder ausweichen und das immer und immer wieder. Ganz offen, es wurde mir bald zu schwer, aber auch zu repetitiv. Die Kämpfe sind auch eigenwillig, wirken wie choreografiert. Die Kamera ist dicht an Senua dran, man sieht also nicht viel und so wirklich frei bewegen, so schien mir, konnte ich mich dabei auch nicht. Man kann es gerne anders sehen und ich möchte mich darauf auch nicht versteifen, dass die Kämpfe schlecht sind, mir lagen sie aber schlicht ganz und gar nicht.

Und da nach einem Kampf vor einem Kampf ist, habe ich schnell die Lust verloren, mich nach einem Bildschirmtod nochmal ins Getümmel zu stürzen.

Da ist es fast nur noch eine Randnotiz, dass ich von einer tiefgründigen Story, soweit ich gekommen bin, nichts mitbekommen habe. Gut, die Runensteine erzählen wohl über Mythen, aber viel Tiefe sah ich darin nicht. Ich lief ohne Unterschied mit Senua einfach weiter von Tor zu Tor, von Arena zu Arena.

Dass Senua Stimmen im Kopf hört ist schön und gut, aber auch das war es dann damit. Ich hatte nicht den Eindruck, dass sie mit dem Problem ringt. Mir schien nicht, dass das Spiel irgendwie psychologische Tiefe aufweist. Nur hellseherisch sind manche Stimmen, was dem Spieler beim Kampf hilft.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2112736856

Die Grafik ist gut, wenn auch ab und an verschwommen. Senua wirkt sehr realistisch und ist nach meinem Dafürhalten mal keine absolute Schönheit sondern wirkt etwas eigenwillig unperfekt.

Auch der Sound ist sehr gut und das muss er ja wohl auch bei Stimmen im Kopf. Allerdings habe ich das Englisch nicht immer gut verstanden, auch weil es absichtlich etwas verzerrt wurde. Es gibt zwar deutsche Untertitel, aber in einem Spiel wie diesem finde ich das schon sehr ungünstig, wo man sich doch eher auf den Sound konzentrieren soll.

Ich habe mit Controller gespielt und das funktionierte an sich recht gut.

Zusammenfassung:

In Zahlen für mich persönlich ein Unterhaltungswert von etwa 4/10.

Die für mich unschönen, häufigen und nicht einfachen Kämpfe haben mir den Spaß an dem Spiel zu sehr getrübt.

Aber selbst wenn ich es weitergespielt hätte, mir erschien das Gameplay auf Dauer eher ähnlich eintönig wie das Leveldesign.

Senua's Sacrifice is a masterpiece. This game has cost me so much tears because it has reached me emotionally so deep that i will definitely play it more than once. The developers gave 1000%! On the journey through this game, Senua's thoughts, emotions, fears and hopes conveyed so well that i personally thought I was her. Can just say... 10/10! Thank you so much for this game! Looking forward for the next part <3

Ich finde dieses Spiel sehr gut. Es ist eins der besten Spiele die ich seit langem gespielt habe.

Positiv:
sehr gute Musik, super Atmosphäre, man fühlt mit Senua und man fühlt sich als Teil des Spiels und nicht als Spieler, die Rätsel werden zwar leichter jedoch wird dafür das Spielerlebnis intensiver gegen Ende, Super Bossfights die zwar nicht Dark Souls like sind jedoch auch ihren Anspruch haben,

Negative:
die Rätsel werden gefühlt leichter gegen Ende (leichte Kritik), gelegentliche Vsionprobleme bzw. Probleme beim Fokussieren,


Résumé:
Alles in allem ein exzellentes Spiel! Es brauch nicht immer ein AAA-Titel sein, oder ein riesiges Team. EInfach nur eine gute Idee und ein Team was mit Herzblut etwas für seine Spieler macht.
Ich freue mich auf den zweiten Teil und werde ihn mir definitiv holen.

Ein erzählerischer Meilenstein der basierend auf keltischer und nordischer Mythologie die Geschichte der jungen Senua erzählt.

Story:
Ihr erlebt die Geschichte von Senua, die ins nordische Reich der Toten reist, nach Helheim, um ihren von plündernden und brandschatzenden Nordmännern getöteten Geliebten wiederzubeleben. Das Problem dabei: Die junge Frau ist traumatisiert, leidet an einer schweren Psychose.

Die Psychose im Spiel:
Man trifft Senua erst kurz vor ihrer Ankunft in Helheim und bevor sie auch nur ein einziges Wort spricht, hören wir die Stimmen in ihrem Kopf. Die Stimmen tragen jedoch nicht nur zur Atmosphäre bei und werden als erzählerisches Element genutzt, um die Psychose Senuas umzusetzen, sie sind auch ein wichtiges Spielelement. Sie geben Ratschläge bei Rätseln sowie Kämpfen und offenbaren immer wieder Bruchstücke von Senuas Vergangenheit. Dennoch sollte man sich nie ganz auf sie verlassen. Oftmals verhöhnen sie Senua, lügen sie an, versuchen ihr Angst zu machen und Zweifel zu säen. Obwohl man die Hintergründe des Charakters erst später nach und nach erfährt, spürt man von Beginn an die Unsicherheit und innere Zerrissenheit des Charakters.
Neben den Stimmen in ihrem Kopf bekommt Senua auch immer Visionen und Flashbacks. Von einen auf den anderen Moment wird eine sonnige Lichtung mit Schatten überzogen, vormals kleine Schatten von Zweigen werden plötzlich zu den einzigen Lichtstrahlen.
Hellblade behandelt das Thema Psychose stets respektvoll, scheut aber auch niemals davor zurück, die ganz schlimmen Momente der Krankheit zu zeigen und somit ihre Protagonistin leiden zu lassen. Das Spiel ist unglaublich intensiv, fesselnd, teilweise sogar anstrengend. Es gelang wohl bislang noch keinem Videospiel so gut, den inneren Schmerz, die Verwirrung oder einfach die Gefühlswelt des Protagonisten so sehr auf den Spieler zu übertragen. Hellblade ist ein immersives Erlebnis, dass sich nicht scheut, den Spieler abzustoßen. Die Stimmen, die fehlenden Erklärungen, die Visionen - alles dient dazu, den Spieler noch mehr in Senuas Rolle schlüpfen zu lassen. Stellt man sich anfangs noch die Frage, ob das Abenteuer zumindest teilweise Realität ist oder doch alles nur in Senuas Kopf geschieht, ist dies schon bald egal. Für Senua ist dies die Realität und wir sind Senua.

Kampfsteuerung:
Die Kampfsteuerung selbst ist relativ simpel. Senua kann einen schnellen sowie einen harten Schwertschlag ausführen und mit Tritten die Deckung der Gegner durchbrechen. Natürlich sind so nicht allzu viele Kombos möglich, aber das ist auch nicht nötig. Die Kämpfe profitieren ganz klar davon, dass sie so geerdet und halbwegs realistisch sind. So ist die Bedrohung viel greifbarer. Das Kampfsystem an sich funktioniert gut, allerdings ist die Kamera nicht immer optimal. Gerade in engeren Gebieten, wenn von allen Seiten Gegner angreifen, geht schon mal etwas die Übersicht verloren.
Mit Maus und Tastatur Umsetzung ist gut, besser geht es aber mit einem Gamepad.

Rätsel und Geschicklichkeitspassagen:
Die Rätsel sind da schon viel gelungener. Anfangs muss man meist nur bestimmte Runen in der Umgebung suchen, hat man diese gefunden, öffnet sich die Tür zum nächsten Abschnitt. Dafür muss man geschickt die Gebiete aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln betrachten. Oftmals fehlt ein bestimmter Strich, geht ihr jedoch ein wenig zur Seite, fällt ein Schatten günstig und ergibt das gesuchte Symbol. Zudem findet ihr später Illusionstore, welche die Umgebung verändern. Müsst ihr beispielsweise einen Turm hinauf, aber eine Leiter fehlt, geht ihr durch eines der Tore und plötzlich gibt es eine Treppe. Meist müsst ihr hier die Effekte verschiedener Tore verbinden und euch so einen Weg zu eurem Ziel suchen.An einer anderen Stelle dürft ihr sogar zwischen zwei Welten hin und her wechseln, um euch so Zugang zu einem Gebäude zu verschaffen.
Die Geschicklichkeitspassagen bestehen entweder aus dem Balancieren auf dünnen Holzstegen über tödlichen Abgründen oder aus Fluchtsequenzen. Beim Flüchten hat sich jedoch eine kleine Design-Macke eingeschlichen. An zwei Stellen im Spiel kommt ihr nur mit Trial & Error aus. So sehr einen Hellblade auch die ganze Zeit fesselt, ja beinahe in das Spiel hineinzieht, so sehr wird man dann hier auch aus der Immersion gerissen.

Grafik:
Ähnlich eindrucksvoll gelingen Ninja Theory die Kulissen, in denen aufwändig gearbeitete Details an Gebäuden ebenso beeindrucken wie ein alles überragender Turm in der Ferne; das Ziel der Reise. Häufige Änderungen des Wetters, des Lichts sowie andere Kleinigkeiten spiegeln zudem auf eindringliche Weise Senuas wechselhaften Geisteszustand wider. Schade, dass sie nicht wenigstens hin und wieder ein Objekt anfasst, das nichts mit ihrem Vorankommen zu tun hat, oder einen Gegenstand in die Hand nimmt. Das hätte die Umgebung noch mehr zu einem plastischen Schauplatz werden lassen.

Musik und Synchronisierung:
Der Ton gehört ohnehin zu den Stärken der Inszenierung: Die akustische Gestaltung ist hervorragend und wird von einem ruhigen Soundtrack getragen, mit dem Combichrists Andy LaPlegua eine ebenso geheimnisvolle wie verstörende Atmosphäre erzeugt.
Zur Synchronisierung, es gibt keine deutsche Synchronisierung, nur Untertitel. Was im ersten Moment etwas Schade ist, aber auch wiederum gut, weil die englischen Sprecher einen hervoragenden Job machen.
Wäre das ins deutsche synchronisiert worden, wäre es an den deutschen Synchonsprechern gescheitert (weil die deutschen Sprecher das ganze warscheinlich nicht herüber bringen könnten).
Mein Tipp, unbeding mit Kopfhörern spielen.

Die Senua-Darstellerin:
Die Senua Darstellerin, macht einen hervoragenden Job und in einigen Momenten/Szenen schon fast beängstigend, wie die Szene auf einen wirkt. An die Darstellerin ein dickes Lob, hervoragend dargestellt.

Fazit:
Dass Hellblade mich so umhauen würde, hätte ich nicht gedacht. Ja, spielerisch macht der Titel nicht wirklich was neu und die relativ wenigen Gameplay-Bausteine sind nicht sonderlich komplex, aber das ist mir in diesem Fall vollkommen egal. Sie dienen hier als Vehikel für die Story und erzählerisch ist Senua’s Sacrifice einfach großartig. Das Thema psychische Erkrankung wird mit so viel Respekt und so akkurat behandelt und in die Geschichte verwoben, dass es teilweise beängstigen ist und ich nur meinen imaginären Hut ziehen kann. Jede Szene hat eine Bedeutung und Senuas Krankheit sowie das damit einhergehende Leid werden einem dank der grandiosen audiovisuellen Umsetzung so nah gebracht, wie es nur geht. Hellblade ist eines dieser Spiele, die zeigen, wozu das Medium tatsächlich fähig ist. Kein Buch, kein Film könnte mich so sehr in Senua hineinversetzen. Da ärgert es einen umso mehr, dass ein paar wenige nervige Stellen mich kurz aus der Immersion gerissen haben. Hellblade ist auf sein Gameplay
heruntergebrochen „nur“ ein gutes Action-Adventure (das ist aber in diesem Fall meckern auf hohem Niveau), für das Medium Videospiel ist der Titel jedoch ein Meilenstein.

Einer der größten Kritikpunkte aktueller Ubisoft Games ist es, dass sie ihre Spiele an die möglichst breiteste Masse von Gamern verkaufen wollen. Das heißt sie bringen so viele unterschiedlich Features wie möglich, damit auch jeder was hat woran er Spaß. Leider ist darum ein Großteil eben dieser Features nur halb durchdacht und erfüllen selten den Zweck den sie eigentlich erfüllen sollen. Im genauen Gegenteil steht dazu Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, welches genau einen Aspekt von Video Spielen perfektioniert hat, nämlich den Aspekt der Atmosphäre.

In Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice begleitet man Senua auf ihrem Weg die Seele ihres Liebsten Dillion rein zu waschen. Um das zu tun, muss sie nach Helheim reisen, da dort die Seele von Dillion gefangen ist. Sie selbst stellt sich als ihr größter Gegner heraus, da sie an Psychose leidet. Die Stimmen in ihrem Kopf kämpfen regelrecht gegen sie selbst an, sagen ihr was sie tun und lassen sollte oder reden ihr Angst ein. Das Zusammenspiel von Grafik, Musik und den Stimmen die permanent im Hintergrund zu hören sind führen zu einem einzigartigen Erlebnis.

Das Gameplay hingegen ist leider zu kurz gekommen. Die Rätsel sind meistens sehr einfach und werden schnell repetitiv. Die Kämpfe sind auf gleiche Weise repetitiv, es gibt wenig Abwechslung was Gegner angeht und da man wenige Optionen hat fühlt sich am Ende jeder Kampf gleich an. Besonders problematisch finde ich die Entscheidung einer automatisch im Kampf festgestellter Kamera. Für mich fühlt es sich an als wollte man hier den Schwierigkeitsgrad künstlich erhöhen, da man nicht sehen kann was um einen passiert was bei mir aber nur zu Frustration führte.

Ich glaube, wenn man in Hellblade 2 das behält was Hellblade so einzigartig gemacht hat und das Gameplay deutlich verbessert, kann es zum Xbox Äquivalent zu Playstations God of War werden. Ich bin auf jeden Fall gespannt, was Ninja Theory im zweiten Teil mit Senua vorhat. Spieler die Spaß dabei haben sich in eine Welt komplett hineinzuversetzen, machen mit Hellblade auf jeden Fall nichts falsch. Spieler die abwechslungsreiches Gameplay oder eine Herausforderung suchen sind hier fehl am Platz.

Soundtrack, Inszenierung und Kämpfe sind einfach überragend. Auch die Rätsel passen sehr gut ins Game, obwohl sie sich am Ende ein, zweimal zu oft wiederholen. Doch dies fällt kaum ins Gewicht, da dieses Spiel ohnehin eine kurze Spielzeit hat.

Kann Hellblade nur weiterempfehlen. Habe es mit Kopfhörern gespielt und hatte mehr als einmal Gänsehaut. Kann mich an kein Spiel erinnern bei dem ich so sehr mitgefühlt habe. Die ganze Atmosphäre hat mich richtig ins Game gezogen.

Ich liebe dieses Spiel einfach. Alles daran ist einfach fantastisch. Grafik, Mechaniken, Story und der Soundtrack. Wenn jemand eine Geschichte erleben will, die absolut zeitlos ist, dann sollte man sich diesen Titel nicht entgehen lassen.
Ich habe GameDesign studiert und sogar meine Bachelorarbeit über dieses Spiel geschrieben. Einfach nur ein Meisterwerk und ich kann die Fortsetzung nicht erwarten.
Danke Ninja Theory für dieses Spiel

- Excellent story, narrative and main character. Very good performances!
- Great art design!
- Great puzzles!
- The combat system is simple but great for this type of game! but...

CONS:

-...eventually the game feels repetitive because there's not enough enemy variety or new stuff in combat to justify the last hour of gameplay. The game should have been a bit shorter.

All in one a pretty good story based fight game.
In my opinion this game is also for guys that like the Zelda or Assassin's Creed titles.

Pros:
+nice graphics (far the best that I saw in a story game)
+good story (nice structured and realistically built)
+good puzzles
+good control

Contra:
-fighting techniques /situations could be a little more diverse. there's often only a situation where u push 20 times the same button which is tedious.
-walking could be a little bit more faster

All in all, i decide that this game gets a recommendation from me. ✅

Rating: 84/100 - Game completed!

[h1] Pros: [/h1]
  • Thematik des Spiels (Auseinandersetzung mit Psychosen)
  • Stimmung, Atmosphäre sowie Musik haben sehr gut zueinander gepasst
  • 3D-Audio mit den Stimmen im Kopf
  • die Kopfstimmen sind stetig verschiedener Meinung und man weiß nicht, in welchen Situationen man auf sie hören sollte oder nicht (lässt einem in gewisser Weise erkennen, wie Psychosen auf Personen einwirken können)
  • Vermischung der Realität mit Wahnvorstellungen
  • gute Kampfmechanik
  • simple Spielmechanik und Funktionen, die schnell erlernbar sind
  • die Rätsel zur Abwechslung (vor allem das Areal mit Valravn hat mir sehr gut gefallen)
  • Geschichten über die nordische Mythologie
  • ändernde Spielmechanik und Tastaturbelegung zwischen Kampfsituation und normalem Erkunden
  • düstere Grafik und Darstellung
  • Idee, dass man das Spiel erneut von Vorne anfangen muss, wenn man zu oft stirbt (bringt einem dazu, sehr konzentriert und möglichst ohne Tod bis zum Ende zu kommen)


[h1] Cons: [/h1]
  • keine richtige Möglichkeit sein Ziel bei mehreren Gegnern im Kampf zu ändern
  • Variation der Gegner (bis auf die Bossgegner nur wenige Gegnertypen, die im Laufe des Spiels lediglich in verschiedener Anzahl und Kombination auftauchen)
  • keine Hilfestellungen bei Steuerung und Fähigkeiten (aufgrund der simplen Mechanik und wenig benötigten Tasten allerdings nicht so schlimm)
  • teilweise Überschneidung der verschiedenen Audiospuren (Stimmen im Kopf, Erzählsteine, Hauptstory)
  • innerhalb der Kämpfe kann es passieren, dass man von den Gegnern am Rand kurz festgebugged wird und erst nach ein bis zwei eingesteckten Treffern wieder raus kommt
  • das Ende hat mir persönlich nicht ganz zugesagt


Habe noch nie ein Spiel mit dieser Thematik gespielt, die wirklich sehr gut rübergebracht wurde, sodass man selbst teilweise Probleme hatte, Entscheidungen zu treffen und den Personen oder Stimmen zu vertrauen. Echt gutes, fast schon zu kurzes Game. Würde voraussichtlich auch den zweiten Teil zocken, wenn er raus kommt.

Der Titel ist mir schon länger bekannt, konnte allerdings erst jetzt in den Genuss des Spiels kommen und ich bereue den Kauf nicht eine Sekunde lang. Würde ich jederzeit erneut und auch zum Vollpreis kaufen.

Wir begleiten Senua auf ihre Reise, geplagt von ihren Psychosen, mit dem Ziel ihren Geliebten Dillion wieder ins Reich der Lebenden zu bringen. Mit dem voranschreiten im Spiel stellt man sich mit Senua ihren Psychosen und denen damit verbundenen Ängsten. Es gibt auch einige Rätsel im Spiel, die nicht unbedingt immer sofort zu erkennen sind und gerade mit den Runen, welche zum öffnen von Bereichen benötigt werden, wird viel mit der Perspektive gespielt.
Geballt mit der unglaublich guten Atmosphäre, der zur Situation passenden Musik, der Spannenden Story und dem simplen und doch sehr spaßigen Kampfsystem ist Hellblade: Senuas Sacrifice eines der für mich besten Spiele in den letzten Jahren.

Im ersten Durchlauf habe ich auch nur wenige der Lorestones nicht gefunden, die nebenbei noch Geschichten der nordischen Mythologie erzählen.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice behandelt das Thema psychische Störungen und das sehr gut und Eindringlich, die Erfahrungen im Spiel und die Geschichte mit den Bildern dazu sind teilweise sehr intensiv und eindringlich.

Ich selber habe damit Persönlich nie etwas zutun gehabt und dieses Spiel vermittelt das ganze Thema unfassbar gut und intensiv, durch Bilder und Stimmen in Senuas Kopf.

Durch und durch hat mich das Spiel mit seinen Kämpfen, Rätseln und seinen Thema, sehr sehr gut unterhalten und das ganze auch etwas näher gebracht.

Eine ziemlich düstere Atmosphäre, ganz viel nordische Story allerdings macht auch Raytracing manche Texturen nicht hübsch. Intuitives Kampfsystem und gute Rätsel machen Hellblade dennoch echt gut!

[h2]Höllenritt mit Substanz[/h2]
Selten habe ich einen Charakter intensiver und häufiger leiden sehen, als Senua in Hellblade. Und das lag weniger an meinem Kampfgeschick, sondern vielmehr dem titelgebenden und die Geschichte definierenden Opfer, das die keltische Kriegerin auf ihrem Weg durch die nordische Sagenwelt bringen muss.

Auf der Suche nach unserem Geliebten stellen wir uns den Grauen dieser Mythologie, die gerade in den beiden ersten Spieldritteln audiovisuell beeindruckend in all ihrer Schönheit und Brutalität dargestellt wird. Dabei verschwimmen die Grenzen zwischen dem Kampf gegen die Abscheulichkeiten der Sagenwelt und dem Kampf mit uns selbst.
Essentiell für die Inszenierung dieser psychologischen Gratwanderung ist das absolut herausragend produzierte Sounddesign. Die streitenden Stimmen in Senuas Kopf. Der bis kurz vor die Ohnmacht reichende Stress, den die Gestalten teilweise in unserer Protagonistin verursachen. Der Soundtrack, der sich oft mit düsteren Ambient-Klängen im Schatten hält, aber zur rechten Zeit mit unheilvollen, dreckigen Wikinger-Gesängen auf die Pauke schlägt.

Und ganz zentral natürlich auch die Vertonung durch Melina Juergens, welche die Rolle von Senua ursprünglich nur zu Platzhalter-Zwecken ausgeführt hat. Es braucht nicht lange, um zu verstehen, warum nach ihrer Performance keine weitere Schauspielerin benötigt wurde.
Auch die Mimik hat die eigentlich als Video Editorin bei Entwickler Ninja Theroy arbeitende Juergens auf den Punkt getroffen, wobei natürlich ebenfalls die Technik dafür verantwortlich ist, dass die Emotionen in den Zwischensequenzen selbst Jahre nach Release so gut vermittelt werden können.

Technisches Update und zeitlose Themen
Mit dem vor wenigen Monaten erschienenen Grafik- und Accessibility-Update wurden unter anderem Raytracing-Reflektionen eingeführt und das Charakter-Modell von Senua leicht überarbeitet. Doch auch das technische Grundgerüst macht immer noch einen sehr guten Eindruck. Die Vielfalt der Umgebungen kann sich sehen lassen, was für einige schon alleine visuell äußerst erinnerungswürdige Sequenzen sorgt. Das Spiel setzt außerdem sehr stark auf Effektfilter, welche die Grenzen der optischen Darstellung geschickt kaschieren.
Auch interessant: Da das Motion Capture für den weiteren Cast neben Senua wohl zu kostspielig geworden wäre, wurden die weiteren Charaktere in den Cutscenes in Form von echten Videoaufnahmen eingebunden - was erstaunlich gut funktioniert.

Und wo Senua ihren Weg eigentlich als einsame Kriegerin antritt, sind diese (imaginären) Charaktere integraler Bestandteil der Geschichte. Nach und nach erfahren wir auch durch sie von Senuas Vergangenheit und den Ursprüngen ihrer Leiden. Man merkt, dass Ninja Theory mit Experten auf dem Gebiet der psychischen Erkrankungen zusammengearbeitet hat. Diese so schwierigen Themen werden glaubhaft ins Spiel eingebunden: Das Ringen Senuas mit sich selbst und ihrer belastenden Geschichte. Aber auch das Licht und die Orientierung, die ihr gespendet werden. Dem Spiel gelingt es so, mit einer ernsthaften Substanz starke Botschaften zu vermitteln.

Stärken und Grenzen des Gameplays
Stärker erkennbar war das limitierte Budget bei der Entwicklung, wenn wir auf die spielerische Seite von Hellblade blicken. In Form eines Action-Adventures müssen wir uns in vielen Kämpfen beweisen und dazu auch eine Menge Umgebungsrätsel lösen.
Die Kämpfe haben mir grundsätzlich sehr gut gefallen. Prinzipiell eher simpel gehalten reagiert Senau sehr präzise auf unsere Eingaben, wodurch sich das Parieren eines Angriffs im letzten Sekundenbruchteil oder die wuchtige Ausführung eines schweren Schwerthiebs genau richtig anfühlen. Wir haben zwei Angriffsarten, können treten, parieren, ausweichen und mit aufgeladenem Fokus in Raserei verfallen. Bei diesem gut funktionierenden Einmaleins bleibt es allerdings - keine Upgrades, keine Entwicklung. Auch die Gegnervielfalt ist eher überschaubar. Da das Abenteuer aber auch nur etwa acht Stunden lang ist, hat sich der Kampf für mich dennoch über weite Strecken des Spiels frisch und spaßig angefühlt.

Die Rätsel erfordern es oft, sich genau in der Spielwelt umzusehen. Es wird hautptsächlich mit Formen und Illusionen gearbeitet. Auch die exzellente Audiotechnik findet Verwendung. Der Anspruch ist für ein Action-Adventure teils schon etwas gehoben und die Rätselarten funktionieren prinzipiell gut. Man kann aber ein ähnliches Fazit wie beim Kampfsystem ziehen: Es fehlt ein wenig an der Entwicklung der Rätselmechaniken, wodurch die Abwechslung auf Dauer hin und wieder auf der Strecke bleiben kann.
Dadurch wirkt Hellblade aus spielerischer Sicht gerade im ersten Drittel etwas formelhaft. Später gelingt es dem Spiel aber durchaus, diesen Eindruck mit einigen Überraschungen und frischem Wind zu brechen.

Persönliches Rating: 82/100

Fazit
[h3]Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice gelingt ein sehr fundierter und erwachsener Umgang mit seinen mächtigen Themen.
Herausragendes Sounddesign, eine äußerst glaubhaft geschriebene und verkörperte Protagonistin sowie die emotionale Verschmelzung der Faszination nordischer Sagengeschichten mit dem realen Schrecken psychischer Erkrankungen lassen über das auf Dauer etwas dünne Gameplay hinwegsehen.[/h3]

Wenn dir mein Review gefallen hat, freue ich mich über eine Bewertung.

As a game, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is the cross between a puzzle-lite walking simulator and a brutal action-adventure. Despite some mild design and middling technical flaws, it balances both aspects rather well. As a narrative, this is one fantastic experience. It’s an honest, challenging look at battling mental illness that will stick with you long after the credits roll. It’s as beautiful as it is soul-crushing, making it a must play for anyone who still has a soul to crush.

What a masterpiece! it's not a game, this is art and i love every second of it. the most beautiful and terrifying/dark game that i'v ever played.
Before we talk this game isn't for everyone. it's for people who like story driven games. if you don't like that, then just stick to what you like. no harm in that.
the storyline and the voice acting is more than perfect. the voice acting make you feel you're inside the game.
the gameplay and the combat system i can describe it, like it's make you feel that Hellblade is more viking than the actual vikings xd.
in the end Hellblade was a surprise masterpiece that i'm happy to know.
buy it ffs

you know that...you know that some times living is worse than dying?
some times accepting reality is worse than asking questions and
some times it is worse to move on instead of holding on to the past,
some times you need to ask yourself: do I always have to do what makes sense and what's commonly agreed upon?
the dilemma when nothing makes sense, what happened nor whats happening, the only thing that makes sense is pain and sadness.

Hellblade Senua's sacrifice is an incredible, atmospheric, psychological journey that is fueled by love, anger, regret, remorse, pain and sadness .
Senua's sacrifice is you and me and everyone who plays this game in mythology, mysterious, dark and generally evil world, trying to resurrect her dead lover of yore, Senua takes us and herself where no man ever went before.

Hellblade Senua's sacrifice tells its story to us by listening to voices that are either the creation of Senua's mind based on her memories and emotions or the creation of the world that we travel in, the game is stunning visually, the game's music is remarkable, the game's combat system is incredibly satisfying and well done, the gameplay is simple, puzzles and combat that when you are not learning where are you or who are you or what happened or what's happening.
the game speaks to us using visuals and audio, there is no hud or meters either or anything like that to make it all feel genuine and realistic which was, to be honest very nice.

I didn't expect this depth in the story, the beautiful and interacting of a world or this smooth and satisfying and real fun of gameplay, it was great, I loved it.

this game's too good to be real!

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is a brilliant work of art that is heavily influenced by real and accurately portrayed mental disorders. You follow Senua, a young woman suffering from severe psychosis as she journeys into Helheim to find and recover the lost soul of her lover, Dillion.

This incredibly emotional psychological horror game has an amazing and fluid combat system that’s easy to pick up and play with, not to mention how engaging the storyline is! The graphics are exceptional and many times I felt as if I was watching a movie. Brilliant!

This game depicts mental illness in a terrifying and realistic way. Gameplay is sometimes a bit basic, then it has moments of great inspiration. Fights can be challenging but are very spectacular and never too tough. Senua, we are your friends and i really want to hug you. A must play.

Oh boy i guess this review is not going to win me any new friends but i dont think that Hellblade : Senua's Sacrifice is a good game.... Here i said it.

If you are still here and didint leave your home with axe in your hands to look for me let me explain why do i think so.

First of all credit where credit is due. I wouldnt dream of taking away from this game what it does right . Presentation in this title is just top notch . Everything from visual style to music and everything in between is a solid 10. Vistas are hauntingly beautiful and whispers send chills down your spine.

It's also clear that devs did their due diligence towards subject of schizophrenia and mental illness in general. I'm no expert but it sure feels heartfelt and genuine. But that's where one is forced to draw a line and talk about GAME part of this game.

And the game part is ... dull. I'm sorry it really is. You are stuck with single type of puzzle which for the most part is more annoying than it is actually challening or engaging. Yes i guess it's fun for first few sections to look around the environment for certain shapes but after 10th one i'm left with a wish for a skip button because it adds nothing to experience besides wasting your time.

Same can be said about combat. Dodge, attack,attack and repeat until all foes are dead . It's as shallow as a puddle of water and without any elements from RPG or Action games it doesnt get any better and again is there just to waste your time and you are left wanting a skip button to move on.

Hmm , you want to skip puzzles and you want to skip combat so you could move on through story ... so i'm left with a question why is this a game even? Obviously there's basically no game here, just a story , which is great and deep and i cant praise it enough , but that's it. It's a great story but not a great game. This could have been a movie or novela or maybe a comic book.

Believe me , i feel bad about not liking this as much as everyone else does . I had highest of hopes for this game as i'm a huge fan of Norse mythology and everyone was talking how amazing this is going to be and ... i dont know, it's just not. As a game , something you take your controller or keyboard with mouse and just PLAY this is boring.

Phew ...

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is a confusing experience that combines brilliant execution and lazy design. The cinematic atmosphere and superb acting makes for a psychotically thrilling adventure. The gameplay, on the other hand, can be as dull as a walking simulator. Unfortunately, the mediocrity outweighs any ounce of brilliance and makes for a disappointing end result.

Played with PlayStation 4 controller and my lovely partner

[h1]Positive:[/h1]
  • Absolutely brilliant from a cinematic and psychological horror perspective:[olist]
  • Dare I say that the graphics for this game is on par with the latest God of War (PS4). Even when presenting horrific scenes and landscapes, Senua’s Sacrifice is absolutely gorgeous. I was especially impressed by the handful of scenes that managed to juxtapose beautiful scenery with immensely cruel themes/events. In addition to the spectacular environments, it is clear that a lot was invested in capturing, designing and animating Senua’s face. The story revolves around Senua’s journey as she battles her way through Hel, both literally and metaphorically (fighting her own psychosis). Although I cannot recommend this game, the masterful depiction of her struggles and suffering is undoubtedly the shining centerpiece from beginning to end. I can’t praise Melina Juergens enough for her astonishing motion capture and voice acting performance.
  • Very few games are able to depict psychosis/madness as well as Senua’s Sacrifice has. The larger and more obvious features, such as the well designed atmosphere and storytelling (which again, is highly accentuated by Melina’s performance) held me captive in my own discomfort and anxiety throughout the game. The smaller details, such as the internal conflicting voices that plagued Senua, really convinced me of her madness. Slowly but surely the intensity of the game picks up momentum. More of the depressingly cruel backstory is presented and every subsequent area/challenge is increasingly terrifying, until you reach the climax in Hel. By the end I was left wondering how much of the brutal journey was “real” and how much took place in her own mind.
  • [/olist]
  • For a title that focuses on storytelling, it was surprising to discover that combat is very smooth and responsive. The controls are simple to learn but there are small nuances that add complexity and keep the flow of combat smooth. I also found that the parry and dash/dodge roll, arguably your most important tools, worked incredibly well. Both feel intuitive to use and cancel attack animations (big fan of this feature). Finally, combat is quite forgiving: missed parries will still block attacks (at least to some extent), your health regenerates (damage indicated by the redness of your screen), your inner voices warn you when you are about to be attacked, and you will only die if you take 3+ direct hits in quick succession.


[h1]Neutral:[/h1]
  • My favorite feature are the hidden collectables, lorestones. Each discovered lorestone unlocks a piece of Nordic mythology, with subsequent lorestones stringing together the complete story. Each piece is narrated expertly which adds to the already fascinating (and gruesome) lore. However, there are two reasons why this is listed as a neutral point: [1] lorestones are missable and there is no chapter select feature at the end of the game; and [2] there is no feature in the main menu to relisten to the unlocked lorestones (huge missed opportunity).


[h1]Negative:[/h1]
  • Sadly, most of the gameplay felt like an uninspired afterthought:[olist]
  • ~70% of gameplay is literally walking/jogging around at a slow pace. The only puzzle elements are: [1] walking through portals that add/remove obstacles, and [2] aligning your point of view to fix things and/or identify shapes. That’s it. No progressive difficulty or added mechanics. Just repetitive, mindless and tedious tasks that will cost you 4-5 hours of your life. The brilliant cutscenes could not make up for such boring gameplay.
  • Combat breaks the flow of the walking simulator but unfortunately also suffers from the lack of progressive complexity. Although well executed, there is no difference (in terms of mechanics) between your first fight and your final fight. There are a handful of enemies and a few interesting bosses but combat essentially boils down to parry or dodge and then attack. It also doesn’t help that practically every attack can be parried. Enemy kicks you? Parry. Large bull-like boss slams his body at you? Parry. It also seems like the developers lost inspiration half way and decided to ramp up difficulty by throwing more enemies/longer waves at you rather than putting some thought into innovation.
  • [/olist]
  • Cutscenes are central to Senua’s Sacrifice and are the pillars that drive the intensity of the story. Therefore it is severely disappointing that the audio and video falls out of sync so often. Out of the 4 gaming sessions it took for me to finish this game, the audio fell out of sync in 3 sessions. Needless to say, this diminished the impact of the cutscenes tremendously. Furthermore, I experienced many situations where audio lines overlapped each other, usually when I walked into a cutscene while Senua was still talking. Sadly both issues take away from the experience (massively) and I hope that they can be patched in future updates.
  • With the permanent game over in mind, I spent most of the game playing very carefully to avoid the progression of the curse. However, towards the end I found myself stuck in a maze with a sort of fire demon that chases and kills you. This segment is uncharacteristically unforgiving and is impossible to get through unscathed unless you are already familiar with the maze’s layout. From the moment you respawn, you are literally given 1 second to get a move on or burn up in flames. I must have died close to 10 times before I managed to escape the maze, rendering my earlier efforts futile. I have no idea why the developers thought it was a good idea to combine permanent game over with such an unfair segment.
  • All the effort put into building a progressively thrilling story was ruined by an ending that inappropriately flipped the tone of the game from psychological horror to bright optimism. The sudden uplifting conclusion, made worse with the addition of a generic pop song, felt like a slap to the face. I would compare it to having the Teletubbies share a motivational quote at the end of a Saw movie.


[h1]Verdict:[/h1]
[h1]★★★☆☆ Severely disappointing[/h1]
As you can probably tell from the praise given above, this game excels at artistic expression (with the exception of the tone-deaf ending).Unfortunately, only a fraction of the effort was invested into gameplay. The difficulty of puzzle and combat elements plateaued after an hour, which made the remainder of the experience tedious. Given how much effort was put into building the story and atmosphere, I found it shocking that the gameplay was neglected to this extent. Cutscenes only account for ~10% of the game, so obviously it could never make up for the monotone ~70% walking simulator and repetitive ~20% combat. I found myself longing to end the game 3 hours in (~7 hours to finish). It all boiled down to one simple question: did I have fun? Sadly, the answer is a resounding “No”. Do yourself a favor and watch a playthrough instead.

It's a well-done game. You will surely enjoy the sounds crawling inside your headphones.
Hack & Slash mechanics were enjoyable. It wasn't hard, but it wasn't easy either.

❤ Audience ❤
Hellblade is not for the faint of heart, nor the slow of Hand-Eye Coordination. I struggled for a long time to pick up the combat, and it's not a casual game in any way.

-- PC Requirements --
I listed the PC requirements as 'Better' because you'll need more resources to run the highest graphics. It's worth it. I mean that.

☼ Graphics / Artwork ☼
Graphics are literally transcendental. This is one of the more beautiful games I've encountered, and during the final boss fights, I was in awe. While streaming to my friends, one of them mentioned that it literally looks more like a trailer than gameplay. Yeah, it's THAT good IMO.

♬ Music ♬
The music is listed as beautiful solely for the last boss fight. It's a magical experience, and it's honestly worth the year that I spent trying to beat the game. I felt like a god amongst men while I was slashing enemies to pieces.

☠ Difficulty ☠
I would say the difficulty is hard. It was very hard to master the combat, but once you get the hang of it you can almost fly through the game. Furthermore, the game will very much play on your psyche and make you tense. It makes it a little more difficult.
The biggest kicker- if you die too many times in the game you will permanently lose your save.

§ Bugs §
There really aren't any problematic bugs in the game. Just a few where I couldn't open a door unless I clicked at the right angle. It was kinda annoying to spend 15 minutes trying to find out how to open a door, and then having to lookup the walk through to make sure I wasn't missing puzzle. It happens maybe twice in the game.

☯ Story ☯
**EXCELLENT**. The story had me in awe at the end, and it absolutely is not what I expected. I think the game devs worked really hard to make sure they made the visions and voices accurate the mental illnesses they were portraying. I think the actress for Senua did an excellent job creating realistic motion capture for the dialogue and story progression. When I completed the game, the final cut scene is what gave me my newfound appreciation for this piece, and it's what drives me to write this review.

⚔ Gameplay ⚔
The game play is very challenging in my opinion. Not only is the combat somewhat similar to Dark souls (lots of dodging and the occasional quick attacks), but there are puzzles all throughout the game. The puzzles can be quite complex, as they are often optical illusions that take near 15-20 minutes to solve. Additionally, they can be multiple step puzzles where you will have to teleport through time, or through versions of reality. You'll have combat stages in between, and honestly it's extremely engaging.

۞ Game time / Length ۞
The game time was actually pretty short. The majority of my reviews are after 100 or so hours of play, but I was able to finish this game in about 7 hours of straight game play. I listed it as a 11 because it can definitely take that long if you get stuck on a puzzle or on a certain boss fight. I do not let this detract from the game in ANY way, because if the game was too much longer, losing your save from deaths would become a much more daunting task. I think that because the game is short, it balances that factor out.

$ Price / Quality $
HellBlade currently shows as $29.99 USD on steam at the time I am writing this review. I do not recall what the price was when I purchased it shortly after launch, but if I remember correctly, it was about the same price. Honestly? I would pay that price again. However, because the game play is so short, if you can catch it on a sale (like $25) then totally go for it. It's worth it when you beat it.

Hellblade combines hack and slash action, puzzle solving and psychological horror elements to deliver a dark, deep and twisted story about Senua, a Celtic Warrior, based on Norse mythology. The combat is satisfying and the soundtrack matches the setting very nicely. The only con for me was that the game doesn't explain some mechanics well and it makes some segments stressful because of that. Kudos to Ninja Theory for making this AAA feeling game with a small dev team of only 15 members.

Just finished it yesterday and I can't believe I almost missed out on such a great game!
It's one of the most engaging and emotional narratives I've experienced in a game. it's just amazing how it can make you feel. Definitely a unique experience I won't soon forget...

Long story short, this game is a goddamn masterpiece and absolutely worth every penny.

I had left Hellblade sitting in my library for almost a year, neglected and alone, and quite frankly I should be locked up for such a crime! Hellblade is an absolutely incredible game! Dark, gloomy, haunting, and completely mesmerising from the very start! Ever since release I had only heard good things about Hellblade, but I still didn’t expect to be so captivated by it. I was though! I started and finished it in a single sitting/day. The game is simply wow! Quite honestly the most powerful experience and intense feelings I’ve ever had while playing a game!

I’m not going to go into too much detail. I managed to avoid spoilers until I played it, and I’m so thankful for it, so I’m not going to risk ruining such an impressive experience for anybody else.

First of all, the developers recommend playing the game with headphones for the 3D sound effects, and I completely agree! While I didn’t try without the headphones, I don’t imagine the experience would have been as amazing as it was without them. The sounds play a huge part in the game, and they’re what really make the whole experience so haunting! The story, the way it’s told and unfolds throughout the game is totally different to any other game, and it's pretty horrifying and incredible at the same time. There are some awesome quotes that will leave you thinking about different aspects of your life and how you see the world too.

I see the game mainly as a story driven walking simulator, with many puzzle elements and some fighting thrown in. There was no tutorial stage, so you’re just thrown into the game, but the general gameplay and fights aren’t really anything new, so it wasn’t a big issue. I also think it added to the experience with you being on your own adventure, having to figure things out on your own (the voices help too). The puzzle aspects play a nice part in how psychosis can affect people, something that the extra feature will help to understand some more. Most of them are pretty straight forward, while others can take a little longer to figure out. Others say they can be quite tedious, and while I agree with a couple of them, it will vary for everyone. I also think that's the whole part of the experience too. It shouldn't be a mad rush all the time, and having something like that to slow the pace a little helps vary my mood and enhance the other experiences. The fights are fun and challenging at times too, especially as you advance through the game (you can change the difficulty). The variety of enemies for the length of the game is decent too, and require different approaches to defeat them.

Personally, I would say the feature is a must watch, but I would definitely wait until after playing through the game to avoid spoilers and to not impact on your own understanding or interpretations of the game. It shows some of the people and processes involved with the creation of the game, from mental health and psychosis professionals to first hand insights from those who actually live with psychosis. This kind of research and input really shows in the game, and leaves one hell of an impression!

While the gameplay isn’t anything special, it doesn’t need to be for this game. You play for the experience, and more complex gameplay would likely detract from that experience. As I mentioned before, this is the most powerful and impressive experience I’ve ever had and felt in a game. Ninja Theory, and everyone involved in the development, have done an outstanding job of bringing Senua’s story to life and raising awareness of psychosis. I can’t recommend this game enough! If you’ve left this sitting in your library, or you’ve been sat contemplating buying it, just do it! You won’t regret it!

A magnificent blend of cinematic representations of psychoses and traumas, and mythological horror. It often feels purposely unsettling, artistically disturbing, and mentally triggering.

PROS:
+ Spectacular design!
+ Atmospheric and psychological to the max!
+ Good photo mode.
+ Mostly satisfying combat sequences.
+ Challenging puzzles to solve.

CONS:
- [WARNING] The auditory hallucinations are as realistically pervasive as they may be triggering for some.
- Intimidating absence of map, which forces you to use actual sense of direction.
- Fighting gameplay may appear repetitive for some.

SCORE: 9.5/10

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is an action-adventure game that takes you on a journey that follows the story of a warrior named Senua, a young woman with a troubled life, bothered by severe psychosis.

This could be described as a game with breathtaking visuals combined with mechanics that become very repetitive. The narrative moments are the ones when you travel through the linear world of Hellblade with relatively limited control. There are puzzles that become interesting, especially as they become increasingly difficult and fit into the entire tale.

This game is an interactive drama focused on the narrative and exploration of Norse mythology. It combines moments of limited control with puzzles and even includes combat. Hellblade is a game that does a lot of good but, unfortunately, makes too many flaws to express its personality.

OVERALL SCORE: 7.0

End of such an amazing game! A true masterpiece from Ninja Theory with only 20 developers!!

The sound effects of this game is different than any other games that I have played before and it is beyond amazing! Combat is cool with boss fights are challenging! Visuals are stunning! Voice acting is top notch!

Puzzles are tricky and sometimes makes you wander a bit! Some of the level designs are absolutely gorgeous! Like following the voices in the dark is really something that has barely been seen before and very challenging!

Senua's story is unbelievably good! It's groundbreaking portrayal of mental illness is something that has never been seen in a video game! The impact of it is really mesmerizing! And finally the Vikings setting is really beautiful!

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice - 9.3/10 from me!

Let me make one thing very clear about this game: it's not for everyone.

The story, graphics, and characterizations are all absolutely top notch. Senua is a truly sympathetic, tragic character, and the story deals with complex themes of psychosis/phobias, abuse, trauma, and dogmatism. It's also one of the greatest representations of mental illness (beyond anxiety and depression) I've seen in any piece of media. For all that, I do recommend the game on principle.

That said, what might turn a lot of people away from the game is the actual gameplay. It's basically an interactive story/walking simulator, with puzzles and hack and slash action sprinkled in.

Senua moves very slowly (even when running), and the puzzles range from fairly straightforward to needing a guide in order to progress. When I first started playing I almost dropped it completely because one puzzle was very difficult; I had to force myself to power through so I could get to the good stuff later.

There are also a lot of scenes that are very dependant on your sense of hearing and vision (and the subtitles are pretty poor quality and don't match what's being said all the time), so if you're Deaf/hard of hearing or visually impaired, forget it.

This is a game that will take some patience but when it gets good, it gets REALLY good and will make the experience absolutely worth it. Hopefully the sequel will improve on the gameplay and accessibility because I'm genuinely stoked for more.

10/10.

Hellblade is challenging, but not because of the difficulty of the gameplay. It has an immersive plot, accented by viking mythology, and based on love. It is a dark and gritty psychological thriller with a tragic, but beautiful, story.

On top of this, the game will show you what it is like to live with psychosis if you let yourself be fully immersed. You might need to take a periodic breaks to properly digest the experience. It is worth it.

The graphics, audio, and story are compelling and expertly produced. I haven't played this game in a few months, but I can still vividly remember the encounters, music, and emotions that I experienced. And the voices.

this is the second time i've played this game. Once before on console, and I have to say this isn't just a game but art. The game is incredible at telling telling the story of Senua and protraying her hardships and the internal battles she faces. The combat mixed with the amazing music and surroundings creates an atmosphere that pulled me in even on the second play through. The research and work gone into this game is outstanding and I can't wait for the next. I highly recommend this game to anyone. The game feels great, the story is heartbreaking but also uplifting and the lore pulls you in.

This is a hard game to review. It's a beautiful, in your head game that you have to relate to via your own psyche over the years. Because of the unique angle, I think that's why I recommend this game. Let me explain a little more...

As strange as it may be, I think I have to say that I have been depressed here and there, but I also haven't had major bouts of depression or mental illness. I get anxious plenty, and experience regular levels of stress. In Senua's Sacrifice, those experiences are brought to life through a video game which I find so ironically beautiful. There are moments all throughout the game where the voices in the main character's head feel very close to reality, and making smaller choices feels more monumental than it logically should be.

If you step away from the psychology of the game, the gameplay is pretty blah. My first few encounters were fun, but then they kept happening, over and over. Engrossed by the beauty of the game and repelled by the repititititition, I just wanted to power through the levels ASAP, and just experience this game as a movie instead of a game.

If you're okay with mediocre gameplay and looking for a game that gets in your brain, give this a whirl.

What an intense and captivating ride. I played through this game in one sitting and it had me hooked from start to finish.

You play as Senua, a female Pict warrior who deals with psychosis and you get to truly experience what that feels like, both physically and mentally as you fight your way through the Norse underworld of Helheim to try and save a lost soul.

This is a story focused game first and foremost, and the way the story is told is truly amazing. Incredible writing with beautiful and thought provoking dialogue that sticks with you after the journey. One take cutscenes with a haunting soundtrack and voice acting that feels truly natural, there are a few scenes that got me emotional which will definitely stick with me. The graphics and animations being top tier really enhance that experience, with the motion-capped facial expressions on Senua being some of the best I have ever seen which lets you get fully immersed and really feel what she feels.

Gameplay is solid and controls are responsive for those well timed actions. There are some very intense moments during and out of combat that gets your adrenaline going.

The minor things for me that I didn't like as much was the high amount of align symbol puzzles where you have to align certain symbols with the world around you to open gates, however you do figure them out eventually and it does feel nice when you do. There is also no option to turn off chromatic aberration, motion blur and film grain but this can be solved by editing the .ini files which I did.

All in all I highly recommend playing this amazing game if you like well crafted stories, it's a beautiful, haunting and emotional experience that I will not forget anytime soon.

Before I started playing this game, I had expectations. It had very good ratings and reviews, the screenshots were beautiful and mysterious,.. I was pretty sure I would like this game, I did not know why, just yet.

Sometimes I felt a little trapped, because it is not an open world, the story seemed quite linear and I couldn't jump over everything I wanted. But later I realised, that it is not a problem at all, because the game is very immersive and emotionally intensive. It forces you to think and look for patterns when solving puzzles and it also tests your inner warrior. Whatever the story lacks in non-linearity, it gains through richness of content and scenarios you have to go through.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice guides you through the dark and light side of human perception, challenges your inner demons and cuts deep into your soul, if your are using good headphones. Graphics of the game is well optimised, because even I can play it on very high details with my 2GB GeForce GPU.

A few times I found myself lost or looking for help on the internet, but the game is very intuitive most of the time, if you look at all the other things you still haven't done in the current area. Not to mention that the game offers many pleasant surprises as you progress through the tale.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is a dark fantasy action-adventure game inspired by Norse mythology and Celtic culture.
You play as Senua, a female Pict warrior who deals with psychosis. You fight your way through the Norse underworld of Helheim to try to save the soul of Senua's dead lover, Dillion.
The story is just wonderful. It is incredible written with beautiful and thought provoking dialogues.
Graphics of the character models and environments looks gorgeous.
The game is heavily story focused, so the combat is fun but simple. It consists of the typical light, heavy and block buttons.
It will take less than 10 hours to finish the game, which is totally okay.
Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is from my point of view a masterpiece in terms of atmosphere and storytelling.
I absolutely loved Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice and I can recommend this game to everyone, totally worth it!

Rating: 7.5/10
Genre: Action/Adventure

The Good:
+ The game looks gorgeous especially the character models and environments. I would have liked to see a bit more variety with environments between chapters but that is more of a nit pick. I would also would have liked more graphical options.

+ Celtic/Viking/horror atmosphere with really creative enemy and boss designs.

+ Well written and voiced story with some great cinematic scenes to really drive home the point of mental illness.

+ I like that the developers took mental illness very seriously and did a brilliant job incorporating it into both the story and gameplay


The Average:
+/- The combat is fun and well executed but also feels simple. You have the typical light, heavy and block buttons. You can only target one enemy at a time and the entire combat gameplay does not change throughout the course of the game. I think my main problem is how segregated combat is from the rest of the game. You will solve puzzles, and explore the environment only to go into a ‘combat arena’ fight hordes of enemies and then move on.

+/- The main puzzles consist of finding runes in the environment, almost like a hidden object game. Even though the game gives you hints as to where to locate certain runes, sometimes the game doesn’t always register when you zoom in on them which can be frustrating. I would have liked to have more variety with the puzzles.

Conclusion:
A fun short game that can feel repetitive at times but the atmosphere, subject matter, and story are good enough to carry the game through the end. I particularly like that the game never overstays its welcome and not bloated with filler like so many other games today.

This game is actually a masterpiece of gaming art.
It made me think a lot about psychological illnesses, and what this actually could mean to a person. It took me a long time to complete.
I simply could not process everything thrown at me, I needed some time to let it sink in.
Thank you Ninja Theory for taking that route, and delivering something this beautiful and dark at the same time.

Wow, possibly one if not the best fantasy dark horror games i've played. Love the mythos of the viking lore and the story is one of the best i've seen.

Graphics: 10 - PC graphics pushed, smooth on a GTX 1080ti at 1440p
Sound: 10 - The echos in her mind that talk to you are brilliantly done via stereo, put on those headphones
Music: - Great music, nice ending track
Gameplay: 8 - combination of solving illusions and combat, good but not quite great

Highly recommend and even better the sequel is coming out on next gen and pc

I know I know. Yes, the game does not tell you anything about fighting and you need to figure out your combos and there are not much. Yes, the game is focusing on the story too much and if you are here only for action you are gonna be disappointed. BUT, if you are someone who really likes novels with main characters that is evolving through the plot mostly mentally, or likes movies with lots of interesting settings and has a good lore, this game can be called as a movie game. You pretty much walk and watch in this game, so please do not buy this game and give it a bad review if you were expecting something like God of War. No, but I assure you Senua's story is a unique narrative story where you will amaze and scared, even hold your breath. Also, play with your headphones, not speakers. You will catch my drift when you play it :) 10/10

Stunning game, beautiful to look at and the audio work is fantastic. Steeped in lore and Norse mythology it's a game not just for action adventure fans but also fans of history and myth. A game that also deal with mental health which is a subject close to my heart and been a feature of my life for as long as i can remember. I feel duty bound to say that if you suffer from any mental health problems then please seek help be it through an organised charity, institution or even a good friend. It's something the vast majority of us will deal with at some point.

[h2]Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice Review[/h2]

(Headphones are highly recommended for the game, as it contains directional whispers, which are crucial for the representation of mental illness. The game is subjected to a mature audience as it contains gore and violence.)

Keeping the spoilers to a minimum, we can boldly say that- Hellblade is nothing comparative to your usual games. It operates with your mental health and grips you to the story. This story-rich experience is not only written cleverly but also presented effectively. The plot accented from Viking mythology is enriched with love, tragedy, and dark thriller. Astonishing audio segments making you feel uneasy with the ongoing story, honestly makes it worth the gameplay. Besides all this madness, impressive cinematics are just a cherry on the top. 7-9 hour official walkthrough will not only keep you entertained but will raise your anxiety levels to the roof. The game offers several fragments from visual delusion to out of the blue story turns, which will make you feel unrest and affect your mental health.

[h1]Gameplay:[/h1]
The gameplay starts with a long cinematic, showcasing credits and story build-up lines. You will feel confused in the beginning, but as the story progresses, you will unfold this eye-popping tale. Count it as a story-based puzzle game with psychological twists. There are not many controls to remember. Few interactions or activities to do. The game wants you to unfold the story in a restrictive way. Besides crazy interconnections, there are several fascinating combats too. The combat style is quite amusing and breathtaking. Most of the psychological games lose their charm during the action, as it doesn’t match the overall vibe, but Hellblade builds a perfect balance. Combat animations of respawning enemies along with attack blocking are spot on! Other gameplay aspects like unique runes, unlocking doors, and using delusion doorframes adds up to the game’s brilliance (minimal spoilers). Flexibility in control key bindings helps you to play with your comfortable control set, whether it’s a keyboard or controller. The game requires you to focus for a long time, but with everything going on, it’s hard to digest all of it. So better to take couple breaks throughout the gameplay, or else it will feel repetitive.

[h1]Graphics:[/h1]
Hellblade easily fulfills the new-gen graphic criteria. Every tiny detail is well-polished and well-focused. An underrated game that can compete with many big names in the market. The environmental graphics are realistic and blends perfectly with the story requirement. You will see a lot of luminant effects on doors, runes, and enemies as you will progress through the story. The moment you reach the main menu, you will see the elegance and creativity of the game. A simple UI with brilliant background animation shows the amount of hard work that went into this masterpiece. With every passing door, the surrounding structures change, but keeping the fear and psychological horror sustain its spot. Mentionable effects can be sparks from sword clashing, luminant segments, and most importantly, the expressions of the character. Even big-budget games fail with the effective execution of facial expressions. You will see many emotions running through her eyes. They will illustrate fear, terror, worry, and distress. Overall, a magnificent work put together by the graphic team and kudos to them.

[h1]Main Pros and Cons:[/h1]

Pros-
  • Immersive story.
  • Tremendous graphics.
  • Interesting dark theme gameplay.
  • Great audio work.
  • Brilliant work done on character designing and facial expression.
  • Amazing cutscenes.


Cons-
  • Can feel repetitive.
  • Mismatched subtitles with audio and visual.
  • Long intro.
  • Feels like a walking simulator.


[h1] Miscellaneous Information:[/h1]
Hellblade feature -
A lot of games fail to portray mental health and often represent them as a bad guy. So the team behind Hellblade made a 25 minute long documentary about Ninja Theory’s mental health research. Only watch this documentary after completing the game, as it contains vital spoilers. It is an efficient way to showcase the work and idea behind the game making.

Hellblade VR-
It provides a cool and unique virtual novel vibe, instead of gameplay. You will get motion sickness pretty soon. The gameplay is in Interactive VR, but the cutscenes are in 2D. Eventually, this is something you rarely experience. So it’s worth a try.

[h1] Honest Rating:[/h1]
Hands down the most delightful overall graphics and character modeling. A fascinating game with a brilliant plot. But the gameplay feels hectic and repetitive. Don’t play without headphones. It’s one of those games where the watcher has more fun instead of the player. This walking simulator is a low-key movie, injected with game controls. But overall, fresh experience with some exciting moments.

A GEM OF A GAME! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (Potential spoilers)

Having seen the opening credits, I got a hint that the game is definitely a roller coaster ride. I mean, a Mental Health Advisor for the game? Oh yes, I'm in. A lone wolf, on a seemingly impossible mission? Definitely, I'm in.

A visual depiction of acute psychosis, in the backdrop of Norse mythology, accompanied by stunning graphics, the game will have you hooked to it, as the plot unfolds itself in a steady manner. The game has a linear progression and a limited set of actions that can be performed. Though the combat in the game is repetitive, the overall experience of playing the game overwhelms this minor drawback. Though I'm tempted to rate the game 10/10, the game is, really, beyond ratings.

I've played a lot of horror games in my time. Silent Hill 2 and 3, SOMA, the Dead Space games, Alan Wake, Control, and while playing those games I felt afraid and anxious, as is normal to feel while playing a horror game. Some games even made me cry, like the suicide ending to Silent Hill 2. However with all those games, the suspension of disbelief was there enough to where after I shut the game down, It would take me mere minutes to relax because the events of the game are so fantastical that they simply cannot exist in real life.

Senua's Sacrifice is different. It's different because the suspension of disbelief isn't there. It's different because I've been there, I know how Senua feels. I've experienced and felt what she experiences and feels, and that is a whole other level of terrifying. I can't say that for any other horror game I've ever played. What makes this game different?

Senua is in a constant state of psychosis from the beginning of the game.

As the main menu loads, the game warns you that it was designed with the aid of actual psychiatrists and people who suffer from a psychotic disorder to make the experience of Senua's psychosis as accurate as possible to psychological definitions and patients' experiences and warns you that if you have ever suffered from or still suffer from a psychotic disorder to play at your own risk. I thought to myself dismissingly: how accurate can it be?

Turns out, it's accurate enough to where I can only play it in short bursts or I would suffer a panic attack. It's accurate enough to give me flashbacks of the more than ten years I spent in psychosis. I can't say that for any other game I've ever played. I can't say I've been through what James Sunderland or Heather Mason of the Silent Hill games have experienced, because I've never walked through a foggy abandoned town full of monsters. I've walked through the tunnels of my old university during a dust storm, and even then I was never in fear of a monster popping out, just a security guard showing up and telling me to leave the areas I was never meant to be in. I have however experienced severe psychosis.

I guess for that, the developers deserve a round of applause, because somehow they managed to replicate something that you can't understand unless you've experienced it yourself. No amount of description and psychological definition can give you the feeling of psychosis.

The game itself is tense, but I wouldn't call it scary. The fear comes from my experience with psychosis. As Senua descends deeper into the underworld to save her lover, her psychosis worsens, shadows grow taller, the voices in her head more intrusive, the world grows darker and the underworld generally continues to fuck with her head as her perception of reality becomes more warped. In my case, that happened the more sleep deprived I was, and I was always heavily sleep deprived.

For that I would recommend it, with the added bonus of brutal and satisfying combat. But if you have a friend or family member who suffers from a psychotic disorder and wondered what it feels like in their head, this could give you a rough understanding. My advice? Follow the recommendations of the developers: wear headphones, turn off the lights and turn down the gamma.

Wow, this game was quite an experience. It has a unique story telling. I made a small mistake by playing most of the game with speakers, definitely use headphones! Voice acting and soundtracks are really good, I really liked the final boss music. Lead actress done amazing job and we see the power of motion capture in games.
It has good implementation of perspective in puzzles. But sometimes it feels like they overused the same concept which makes it feel dull. I would say the same thing to combat mechanics, it feels dull. Most of the time I just wished there was no combat, but I also can't deny that it contributed to the immersive atmosphere in game.
I am excited for what's to come in Hellblade 2.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice (2017) | 18 January , 2021

Hats Off to Ninja Theory For Perfectly Executing Such Complicated StoryLine

Striking a balance between superb visuals, outstanding sound design, excellent character writing and a well-written story which spans wonderfully in a rich Celtic and Norse mythology.

The story is heartbreaking, the game play is difficult but doesn't punish you like say the Dark Souls series. The music and atmosphere are fantastic and it's a pretty dark heavy game if you're into that.

What a game!!...I mean if u r scrolling down to check the reviews what the heck r u doing. This game is a true masterpiece, the combat is awesome, the audio is mind-blowing( will give an experience that u never wud hav imagined) and the visuals are just amazing. The game truly is a psychological horror and the developers did a risky job on their part but delivered one of the best games of all time. Don't listen to the haters....just go for the game...it will blow ur mind.

Woah, nice game, I mean, story. As a game, I'd say is rather dull.

The puzzles are boring, easy and repetitive. The combat seems to have depth, but just doing the same combo over and over will be enough to win every battle.

Maybe they should've made the enemies force you to explore the combat system by making them a bit more challenging.

But I get it, that's not the game's selling point. What this game is all about is the story and setting. And that's fantastic.

From the way the game handles such things as mental health and its struggles to the way it presents us this Norse/Celtic mythology inspired story. The environments, the design is beautiful. The voice acting is great, the motion capture is one of the best i've seen in a videogame. Everything that's not strictly gameplay related screams triple A quality.

I guess there would be no difference if you watched all the cutscenes without playing the game. You'll only miss a bit of lore and dialog from the lorestones.

Anyways, I think its worth playing despite its flaws, overall its a great game, I only wish the gameplay elements would've been on par with the storytelling.

Another great job from Ninja Theory, recommended.

I would absolutely recommend this game. It's a unique and interesting experience. It's visceral, and there is a fair bit of gore and horror, but at it's core it's a game about hope and wading through darkness and inner turmoil. The puzzles were clever and challenging in ways that made me want to do more, most often requiring exploration which is my jam anyway.

As a game it made me think and feel, and I often found myself reflecting on my own life and experiences. That kind of personal engagement feels very rare these days with most games being churned out for the sole purpose of shooting off some proverbial fireworks and taking your money for the purposes of churning out more of the same. That kind of money-grab is not this game, and the care and thought that went into it shows.

After completing the game I kept thinking about it for several days after, and even considered immediately starting a second play through. I have not had THAT feeling about a game's story in literal decades. I would absolutely call this one my most favorite games ever.

Premise: Hellblade is about a girl named Senua on a quest to resurrect her dead lover by walking into the Norse version of Hell.

[h3]Psychosis.[/h3]
Hellblade purports to portray general psychosis through Senua. Though, in my layman's understanding of mental health, I would further suspect some level of paranoid schizophrenia due to her hearing voices as well as some level of disassociation.

I am not a mental health professional, nor an expert in the field. Everything I say is from my own experience in therapy and from casual internet research.

Narratively, these voices sound like they are inside her head, or that's what the game wants you to think. She occasionally will look directly into the camera as if mad at the voices. Giving the feeling that the player is causing her psychosis or that maybe perhaps it is the player's actions that impede Senua.

The voices seem to act as a method of player validation and exposition. Rather than depict psychosis from Senua's perspective one hundred percent of the time. Although, occasionally the voices do make fun of Senua — which, from my understanding of schizophrenia, is much more common. Often times the voices will both accurately depict psychosis and inform the player of her status. For instance: In battle, if Senua becomes low in health, the voices will say things like “Don't let them see you as weak!” — while another voice will just laugh.

[h1]Combat and gameplay loop:[/h1]
You'll control Senua as she cautiously examines the world of Helheim. This will be performed in general by examining a door with runes on, then finding those runes within the environment. These are perception puzzles, in that they're solved by viewing things from certain locations at certain angles. Which in and of themselves feel like an analogy... from my perspective.
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2473738656

Senua's default movement is egregiously slow, it's okay for story moments, but during puzzles it's obnoxious. There's an option to turn run into a toggle that I highly recommend using. The slow pace of movement creates a lot tension in the atmosphere. But when going back and forth and running around doing perspective puzzles trying to figure out what, if anything, has changed in the environment it's nice to not have to hold run down all the time.

[h3]Combat:[/h3]
It's relatively standard — you've got quick and strong attacks plus evade and block. A well timed block will parry/counter. There's also a melee attack to knock shielded enemies off balance. It vaguely reminded me of “Ryse: Son of Rome”. Although thematically it's probably closer to God of War. The combat is more compelling than I originally perceived before playing. You can also combine some things such as sprinting and then doing a lunge attack.

As mentioned, the voices help in battle — they'll call out attacks when enemies are behind her and have her surrounded or inform her when enemies have low health. Almost like an evolution of how Dead Space tried to integrate the HUD into in-game elements.

The combat can feel shallow. However, because the game has permadeath (with some retries) — juxtaposed to something like another Ninja Theory game in DMC where you're encouraged to try different fighting styles to increase your score. Hellblade's combat feels like it has more drive behind it. You don't want to try something new because it could result in your much more real death.
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2473768912

Senua also has a mirror on her belt that acts as a gauge for her focus. Out of combat, focused is used to examine things. However, in combat it's used to slow enemies down.

[h1]My take:[/h1]
Part of what irks me about religious or mythological tales is that they often involve characters that are fighting their own god or gods — they often tell a story with the idea of feeling abandoned by them in some way. Possibly betrayed. As an atheist, the concept of a god never enters into my framework of what is necessary for our own existence. The existence of a god would actually make things even more convoluted because you'd need to further provide reason and evidence for its own existence. In Hellblade, once again, it's difficult to to determine if Senua is exclusively dealing with her psychosis or if there are actual gods she's dealing with. As in, it's not really clear to me if this game is a very archaic but elaborate exposure therapy session to try and deal with her own grief or if narratively, she is literally fighting gods in an attempt to resurrect her lover. It could also just be an allegory for the struggle of dealing with loss and I'm just overthinking again.

Technical issues:
I died a few times because the camera got stuck behind a wall during combat and was unable to defend myself. I died another time during a chase sequence when I got stuck on the geometry of small vine in a tunnel.

[h3]The Gist:[/h3]
I think Hellblade is worth a playthrough. Though, it's far from a masterpiece. I do think it's the main reason why Microsoft wanted to acquire Ninja Theory. But for me, I feel the game would have been better suited without the meandering emotional guilt of a mentally unstable teenager while the perplexing question of — “is Senua even lucid throughout this? — is never really addressed. I'm not a fan of poetic imagery because it fails to provide a succinct message. Confusion or conveying the abstract is certainly a valid course for story-telling but I feel it's a bit overdone in this. I think it would have fared better if Senua was simply a warrior in a very difficult battle or war and struggled to cope after failing. In my eyes, that would have made a better, more cohesive tale.

[spoiler]For me, the message that I pulled out of this game is one that I discovered in my own life already — the real harm of religion is that it utterly robs people of the ability to cope with the actuality of death. Regardless of one's mental state.[/spoiler]

This game will take you on a emotional journey where everything is a reflection of what you thought of as real.

The game is littered with so many connections to ones own life and the story is so deep, you need a few days to decompress when you reach the ending.

Without a doubt this game falls in my masterpiece collection.

- What can I say about this game? The story is amazing, super inspiring and motivational. It gives us an insight into the perspective of those who suffer from a mental pathology. It even enters into us and, for a moment, it seems that we too are inside the history.
- Regarding the gameplay itself, I think they could make the puzzles and fights a little less boring. They become very repetitive and with few differences. In addition, they could increase Senua's running speed a little... She seems to run less than my grandmother...
- Finally, the game graphics are beautiful and super realistic. Nothing to point out in this field.
- As a final rating, I give it an 8/10.

This is my love letter to Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.

First of all I would like to say it was very hard for me to write this review and even harder to finish this game without having a panic attack or feeling exhausted after 2 hrs playing it.
Having said that I love this game and the way it tackles mental health issues. I knew what this game was about and I didn't want to play it because of my long term battle with depression and severe anxiety. After finishing it I can say I am stunned how good this game is and by that I mean that this game is pure quality in every way.I am not going to write much about stunning visuals, great audio and sound design and smart combat. all of these things add the the overall atmosphere in this game but at the end of the day this game is about everyday struggles with mental health.
While I was playing this game I was thinking - Am I interpreting all these things correctly? - After finishing the game I sat down and tried to think about all things that I went through in this game and I realized it is what it is...I am struggling with my demons for a very long time and I like/hate to believe that by now I think I hate them so much that I know them.
This game divides opinions and that is always good.People who live every day with mental illness will have a much better understanding of this game and probably will recognize parts of their struggles. People without these issues probably will not have the same experience and while I was reading negative reviews I saw that. There is no doubt that this game is an work of art but more importantly it does something no other game does, it tackles these themes straight on so that more people can try to understand how tough it is to wake up and get through the day.
I would like to thank the developers for such a bold move and well you made a stunning game guys. I hope people will look back at this masterpiece and say that this game changed some things in the industry and and whats more important in public perception of mental health issues.
I am going blind and my whole life that was and still is my biggest fear(demon) so I am glad I played this game,once again thanks and.... well that it.

I enjoyed the story and the focus on awareness of mental health issues, but the puzzles are just horrible. AND SLOW. Even running I felt like I was covering every square inch of the maps multiple times and it became an exercise in frustration. Combat when it occurs was entertaining, but the complexity and time consuming nature of the puzzles killed it for me.

One of the most outstanding and captivating video game experiences I have ever had the pleasure of playing. Their depiction of Schizophrenia is about as accurate as you can get in a video game, from the pattern recognition to the visual and audio hallucinations. I really like that there isn't anything on the screen besides Senua-- no minimap, no waypoints, no health bar, just voices in your head. This makes it incredibly immersive. Using good headphones is an absolute must to get the full effect of the binaural audio. This game is so incredible, one of the best games I've ever played , a masterpiece!

An impressive interactive story driven game with visual and perceptual distortion puzzles and combat. Great graphics and sound, it's not the longest game, but a thoroughly recommended experience for anyone that enjoys narrative/experience driven games.

Hellblade Senua's sacrifice pits you as Senua, a Celtic warrior dealing with the loss of their beloved and their quest to retrieve them from viking Hell. What follows is a compelling mind bending journey steeped in Norse mythology and rich visuals. The narration and the whispered voices all complete the experience she goes through. However, it isn't the longest game (I have completed it in less than 10 hours and I generally take my time with games). With that said I am very glad I went through the experience. It's more on a level with a film with it's forced perspective and narration of events, it's clearly telling a very specific story here. However, with everything noted this is not a game I can see myself returning to often, rather perhaps returning after time to relive the experience.

Pros: haunting narrative combined with visual and audio that create a disturbingly compelling vision of Senua's reality. Great visuals and fluid loading.

Cons: Short game, forced perspective/camera. Combat whilst good can seem a little repetitive.

Overall this is something I would recommend to almost everyone, if only as a one of experience. Not a game with endless replay but a fascinating game nonetheless.

This game has been an amazing experience. I will not talk to much about it other then to say that I highly recommend it. I will talk positively about something in the game mechanics. The game uses an auto-save feature. The auto-save happens regularly at the right moment, and sufficiently that it does not cause a player to have to replay significant portions of the game. If you decide you want to quit you will be back relatively close to where you were. Likewise if you are defeated in combat or other obstacle. This prevents that horrible sense of having to replay significant portions of game over and over again - which makes for a boring and repetitive experience that is also frustrating. That is NOT the case in this game. The creators of this game deserve every award they have received and many more. A fantastic experience and I all I can say is Thank you for bringing this to me.

I got this on sale, as though beautifully done, it only took me 6 hours to complete... I may attempt again for ONE SİNGLE LORESTONE but I definitely recommend this game.

This game was so well done. Whilst combat became slightly repetitive, the movement and style was great. Dodge dodge dodge but it definitely has a nice fighting style.

But this game wasn't hack and slash. It had such a beautiful and haunting narrative. You can bet I'm gonna be finding people to talk their ear off about this game, hidden meanings and reveals.

I'm a scaredy cat okay? And this game didn't use jump scares or an entity. Instead it used the enviroment and though sometimes yes there was a physical enemy but it dove into mental illness, the fears and self-doubt.

The puzzles and obstacles were well done and I enjoyed solving them. Couple of frustrating moments but ya find a way.

The voices ''furies'' were excellent addition to the game's plot and even the combat. Whether they were friend, foe or even something else was always in the back of the mind.

TIP: Psychosis is not a mental condition. It is a SYMPTOM of a mental condition, for example, schizophrenia. Please be aware of this. Don't hesitate to see a psychiatrist/therapist if you have any doubts on what you are experiencing in your mind. It's okay to ask for help. You are not weak. You are not alone. You are loved. You deserve happiness. You deserve a fulfilling life. Be gentle on yourself. It is never too late. Tell a trustworthy friend so they can watch over so you don't have to bear the burden alone.

Take your medications on time and be consistent. For the first two months of taking them, nothing will happen (any side effects will subside as your body adjusts). So don't give up. Changes will come when you are patient.

Other than that, this gorgeous looking game is a fantastic inter-personal journey that can educate players, build empathy and foster understanding towards those that live with a mental illness in an interactive way. Players and the gaming industry can benefit with more stories such as this. This is the power of video games. Anything is possible.

Remember in Celeste when the story was about Madeline climbing up a difficult mountain ? What is the player doing in the game ? Climbing up a difficult mountain.

Remember in Life is Strange when the story was about time travelling to make meaningful choices ? What is the player doing in the game ? Time travelling to make meaningful choices.

Remember in Psychonauts where the story was about using psychic power into people's mind to find out how to help them ? What is the player doing in the game ? Using psychic power into people's mind to find out how to help them.

And now we have Hellblade, where the story is about a woman fighting her own traumas inside her head plagued with psychosis. What is the player doing in the game ? Dumb puzzles and boring combat.

Seriously, this game has been amazing. To watch. But not only that the gameplay is bad, it is also so disconnected from the story it is telling. I have no clue about what having psychosis is like after beating it, except if looking for pareidolia all over magically cures it.

In a videogame, most of the story should come from the gameplay. Otherwise just make a show.

Hellblade is a uniquely atmospheric game with stunning sound design and visuals with adequately serviceable gameplay to hold it all together. The unique premise of a Pict warrior woman heading deep into the Norse underworld to save her lover from Hel herself. Senua suffers from psychosis however and from the beginning to the end is afflicted with voices in her head, either doubting, criticising and tormenting or supportive and praising Senua, sometimes all at the same time, as she and therefore you commit to her quest. Headphones are highly recommended to get the most out of the voices that add a lot of this experience. The sound design in this game can't be praised enough. The combat is simple but enjoyable. Visual puzzles that fit with Senuas unique psychological condition punctuate the progress. This is a stylish and sometime breath taking game which I can whole heartedly recommend to player who can enjoy atmosphere and in depth character study over elaborate gameplay.

This game is very atmospheric and creepy at times, as there is no HUD and you constantly have multiple voices whispering into your ears from multiple directions.

I felt like I was tripping whilst playing this, overall an enjoyable expereince and a good short story.
Some issues i did have was stuttering and frame drops despite running a 3080 ti with a 5950x.
Also I feel like the camera is zoomed in too close to Senua, which caused me a bit of motion sickness at times.

A phenomenal game. The game is quite short, only 10 hrs, BUT ... this game gives you a whole new experience ... AND ... watch out as voices may not stop when you turn off the game xD. I'm really looking forward to the second part. It's worth buying. graphics-8/10, gameplay 6/10, logic puzzles 4/10, story 8/10.

If you're interested in decoding the game, or if you're not put off by the whispers that run through it, or if you're comfortable with the religious elements and the oppressive atmosphere, or if you want to see the world through the eyes of a mentally ill protagonist, this is a great game to watch. The author's thoughts on life, religion and death are reflected in senua's growth, which is also conveyed to the players through this novel and resonates with them. Meanwhile, the ending is thought-provoking.
But if you think of the game as an action game, or if you don't have the psychological ability, this game may not be for you. Five minutes of fighting, two hours of deciphering. At the same time, the whole process of the game feel heavy depression, may cause discomfort in a part of the crowd.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is easily one of my favorite games I've ever played. I cannot recommend it enough, though please read my disclaimer at bottom as well before taking me up on my recommendation.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice is an amazing mix of interesting and unique puzzles, satisfying melee combat, and psychological exploration, all packaged in a stunning world with graphics that really only a AAA game studio can provide. The game follows you, a schizophrenic woman named Senua, who must travel to Hel to fight for the soul of her dead lover. The entire game, from story, atmosphere, combat, narration (voices in your head?), and even the mechanics of the puzzles, all tie in to this theme of the dark thoughts of a schizophrenic woman, desperate to save her lover. This level of thought, care, and love that clearly has been poured into the game creates both a world and main character that feel as real and immersive as anything I have experienced.

- Puzzles are unique, satisfying to figure out, and mind-bending. While occasionally you can miss a mechanic, leaving you walking around for a while, this is rare, and solving those puzzles are still very satisfying.
- Combat is also satisfying but not so unique. Combat consists of swords / melee encounters, with rolling and parrying akin to dark souls. Combat never gets terribly difficult, but is always an enjoyable encounter.
- Story is once again satisfying, unique, and deep. Expect the story to play heavily into what you are experiencing in the moment, but don't expect it to play out like a movie or walking sim. Instead, expect more Norse lore and obstacles towards your goal.

My only main complaint is that I have seen some nearly game-breaking, very immersion breaking bugs occur in the PC version of this game. Unfortunately when this happens, there don't seem to be any easily available fixes, and you simply have to get past that part, with potentially impaired vision, movement, etc.. This doesn't happen to everyone, but does certainly affect your experience if it does happen to you.

Disclaimer: Schizophrenia plays a central theme in Hellblade, and the game truly makes you feel that theme as though you or a close friend were to suffer from the condition. The creators worked closely with psychologists to get this feeling correct, and while I personally don't have firsthand experience with Schizophrenia, Hellblade certainly makes you feel it. The game is quite dark, and you will feel this as you play it. I do not recommend playing this game if you are not in the right state of mind to handle that.

There is something hauntingly real and terrifying about Hellblade

Face your demons on a journey to make the ultimate sacrifice. But will you ever be the same?

Hellblade is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that is best played completely spoiler-free in one sitting. Are you looking for a thematic story-rich experience? Then this game is a must-play.

The sound design is the most innovative part of the game. Highly recommend using surround sound speakers or headset for the ultimate experience.
Hellblade has some of the best voice actings I have ever experienced in a game. Without spoiling I will say that you will get an experience beyond anything any game has yet to offer.
The music is a modernization of ancient Nordic folk music and merges with the game's Viking thematics.

Hellblade's gameplay suffers from repetitive combat. You will be facing the same base enemy types for the whole game. That would not necessarily be a terrible thing if it wasn't for that enemies feel like annoying combat sponges made as obstacles to make the game longer. However, the combat animations are impressively fluent and well animated. Besides the base enemy types, you will be fighting some memorable bosses that will challenge your combat flow.
Except for the combat, you will be solving puzzles. The puzzles make sense thematically, but they are too easy to actually be called puzzles.
Excluding all the gameplay flaws, Hellblade has something nearly no game has or hasn't. There are no out-of-game indicators like health bars or stamina. Everything you need to know is displayed by showing it in-game rather than out of the game, which makes it truly immersive.

Hellblade has such impressive storytelling that I would not be surprised to see it analyzed in an academic setting.

Hellbladeis is an experience. Treat it like one and you will be amazed.

1 st game i installed on my new PC in the beginning of the pandemic.

captivating story, also educational (didn't know much about picts, made me curious and read about them), great atmosphere and voice acting.

gameplay is simple but satisfying.

only gripes is the puzzles that are a bit annoying, but can be easily overlooked imo.

An awkward mix of game mechanics and storytelling with an excellent pov on psychosis. Though before you buy it lets keep this in mind:

* Miscellaneous:
- Game is linear, but I was still able to miss stuff (about 5 lorestones).
- Roughly 8 hours of gameplay for me. I'd give it about 6ish though.
- Play with headphones. It makes a difference.
- The game is not hard, but do expect to be overwhelmed in combat.
- Permadeath is real. Believe in me. Also give me 5 bucks for this info.
- Its an AAA game made by an indie company that put a lot of work to represent a mental disorder (psychosis) in a game. Kuddos!

* Pros:
- Art wise the game is gorgeous.
- Roleplaying from actors are on spot.
- The Furies are your best friend/enemy. Specially in combat. See ***. A very interesting mechanic.
- Combat mechanics are really good. See *.
- Puzzles are interesting. See **.
- Storytelling is awesome.
- Their take on psychosis in overwhelmingly good.

* Cons:
- * But sadly it needs a bit of polishing. Mechanic wise is good, but it's repetitive and simple. The way the game puts you at a disadvantage is to put you fighting at least 3+ enemies. You have to tactically position yourself in a way so you're not surrounded. And they will spawn randomly anyway.
- Combat AI is not exactly the best. And the fights rely way to much on mobbing to put you at a disadvantage.
- ** They're perspective based. So its difficulty is either 8 or 80. Meaning if you don't get it you'll get stuck and fed up. And if you get it they'll be dumb as hell.
- Game vacuum is filled with endless battles and puzzles. After a while it does gets boring. And if not cutscenes you're in a walking simulator.
- *** Camera angle is over the shoulder and feels awkward. Its not bad, but definitely not the best either. Specially when fighting (which is good and bad as if you were fighting with blind spots).
