My good friend @gamingwithdaughters posted about this game a little while ago and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since so I wanted to replay it and post about it. I played Hellblade on the day of its release as I couldn’t wait for it to come out! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I watched the trailer for it. A horror/action game, in a Norse/Viking setting...I was hooked instantly. But I honestly didn’t expect it to be as good as it was! This game is a solid 10/10 in every aspect. I don’t really want to give too much away but I do want to discuss some reasons why I loved it! Senua is a fantastic character and she is very well written. The motion capture and performance from @melinajuergensofficial is just incredible! She is just so human in the way that you really feel when she’s scared, when she’s angry and when she’s heartbroken. There was one particular scene that before a fight, she’s scared, but she’s also angry and she just gives off this Viking kind of scream/growl to psych herself up and I was on the edge of my seat full of adrenaline. There are so many scenes in this game that made my hairs stand up and that honestly rarely happens to me and my desensitised mind. Legitimate research went into mental health and how it can affect you as a person and you can clearly see that in the game. You’re prompted to put on headphones for the 360 sound as all the voices in your head are there to mock you and question your every move. The combat is smooth and fun, the Viking enemies are terrifying and the boss fights are honestly breathtaking! One thing that’s extremely important to me is the soundtrack, by @andylapleguaofficial it’s such a scary soundtrack and it sounds like something a Viking would listen to in battle. I could go on and on and I haven’t even talked about the story of the game yet but I feel like that would be a spoiler! I’d urge anyone to play this game...Anyone! It’s an absolute masterpiece. Can’t wait for the sequel!
