Hellblade: this was Senua’s initial sacrifice
We must go back to August 16, 2017 to see our final take on the title, where it achieved a rating of 9 out of 10. In the analysis we said that it is “a unique journey to the deepest darkness, where the toughest battles are fought: in the mind of a Celtic war with a serious psychotic disorder.”
“Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice is a unique and special proposal whose core is in the treatment of psychosis and its masterful recreation. Setting in the Viking era with very interesting history and mythological legends, a more than remarkable graphic aspect and excellent sound effects and music, recreating the voices that the protagonist hears in her head in a chilling way ”, we underlined.
Of course, in the conclusions we warned that “It is not a game for everyone”, although “it will like and surprise those willing to live a different story.” Among the negative points we alluded to “certain moments” in which it could become “repetitive”, in addition to missing “a greater variety of enemies. The analysis was done based on the PS4 version.
