Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice – Review

Game Review – Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is a dark, fantasy, single-player, adventure game based on a character, known as Senua, who is a Celtic warrior that also suffers from a mental disability known as psychosis. The game was developed by a game development studio called Ninja Theory, which consists of approximately twenty developers. It was released on August 8th 2017 and has won awards such as, Best Audio Design, Games for Impact and more.

The game itself looks beautiful visually, also as you walk through forests, beaches and various ruins of tribal/Celtic like villages and castles with large mountains in the background, as well as using a mix of real life characters for cut scenes and animated ones which gives a perfect blend and never really looks out of place. I really like the combination of story-telling and gameplay. It gives the player a big moment of suspense and then a long cutscene as a bit of breather. When you launch the game, a message pops up and suggest you to play with headphones for the full experience. I think the audio is a big part of the game and would really recommend to play with headphones as it really helps immerse you into the game world.
