From Ninja Theory, the developers of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and Heavenly Sword, comes a game that is nothing like those previous titles. Hellblade follows Senua as she fights her way through a nightmarish landscape in an intense and personal journey. Focusing more on the titular character’s story, rather than combat, makes for a far deeper and more terrifying game.
Critics praised Hellblade primarily for its creepy atmosphere and for the world it presents its story in. It is stunning to look at and Senua’s struggle with mental health is captivating. The compelling story is also strengthened by the inclusion of challenging puzzles and strong combat. For more on Hellblade, you can read our review here.
