Nothing was rushed here, instead it’s a fully realized game that was meant for the PlayStation Vita. Severed is one of the best reasons to own a PlayStation Vita. It’s specifically designed around the system’s strengths, and the graphics truly shine on the Vita’s OLED screen. DrinkBox has really outdone themselves, and have made an absolute classic.
Severed presents a grim tale of grief and vengeance that offers deceptively deep combat. This is a great example of touch controls done right and the presentation is top-notch. This is a must-own Vita title.
Overall, Severed does a lot of good with its excellent and challenging combat, intricate dungeon maps full of collectibles, unique and visceral upgrade system, and a fantastic presentation. Its biggest shortcoming is its lack of opportunities to engage with its world and Sasha’s history, but with everything that works so well about the game, I can mostly forgive this slight.
