This is one of the Xbox masterpieces. I love everything about this game, especially the 3D audio feature. This gives me chills more than any horror games I've played. The immersion is too strong. Not focused on jump scares or anything but will simply make your spine chill due to its compelling narration and the psychological warfare Senua is battling. Hoping to play the sequel of this game.!

Aside from it being quite lineal; one of the best games ever made. I love how the use of a headset is used to make a completely different hands experience.

Hellblade is a screenshot-worthy game through and through. The environments are beautifully macabre and the character models are simply stunning. The facial emotions Senua displays are downright eerie at times.Hellblade is an amazing achievement in game design. It is something I think everyone should play.

Hellblade's most notable achievement is the handling of an incredibly sensitive subject matter within an engaging and well-crafted action/adventure game. At its heart, the story is about Senua's struggle to come to terms with her illness. In the process, she learns to find the strength within herself to endure, and to make peace with her past. And in a profound and physical way, we go through those same struggles with her, and come away with a better understanding of a piece of something that many people in the world struggle with.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice’s most riveting achievement isn’t how well it functions, nor how well it’s written and voiced, nor how well it looks, but how well all of that unifies into such a dark and compelling experience. The constant tension throughout the entirety of this unique and engaging journey will disturb you, intrigue you and stay with you, long after the credits roll.
