Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice is based around a young celtic female warrior quest to free the soul of her lover from the grips of Hela, queen of underworld. During the entire game, we are presented with a person who suffers from a psychosis, and is at the mercy of the voices in her head. Many helping her along the way, some making her doubt herself, and the entire experience of this is best enjoyed with headphones.
This being said, the voices, and the atmosphere give this game a very atmospheric horror feel that will make your heart beat fast as you attempt to win every battle, and avoid darkness at every turn. With entire parts of the game dedicated to solving puzzles that can only be understood from her point of view. And, combined with the danger of permadeath, we get a very real sensation of urgency and panic. Die too many times, and you have to restart the entire game.
How you feel about this quest, is up to you. I personally took 7 to 8 hours to nearly complete the game, finishing the entire story. And, if there is one thing I have to say about it, your mind will have trouble wrapping itself around the gameplay in some instances. Having to be burned, and die in some cases just to continue the game. Where that occurs, is for you to experience. Have fun!
