I haven't played a Ninja Theory game before but after this i will buy every single game they release. How freakin awesome is this developer? this game is by far the most intense and best storytelling and gaming experience in my whole life. And i have been there since Atari 2600. I bow before you.
I fully agree. If you'd like to have another amazing storytelling and gaming experience (but with less action), I recommend you check out SOMA. It has the same level of immersion, and a story that blew me away just as much as Hellblade's, just differently.
Russian poetry translation:
Русский перевод стихов трейлера Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice:
В этом ожившем кошмаре,
Где сбываются страшные сны,
Ты упорно ищешь выход.
Из непроглядной тьмы.
Ты пролила из его очей
Чтоб утолить свои бури
И смыть кошмары ночей
Но темные воды извергли врага
Опустошили твои берега
Обрушились пламенем в темной ночи
Ты все еще слышишь, как он кричит?
И вот ты вернулась,
Его душу унес звон мечей
К тем богам, что не станут слушать
Твоих жарких молитв и речей
Пусть сгинет тело, но не обещанье
Твоя смерть не стоит гроша
Ты пробьешься сквозь тьму и страданье
В твоем мече еще бьется душа.
Ты дралась за любовь бесстрашно
Со своей непроглядной тьмой
Ты сражалась за то, что важно
Но победа осталась мечтой.
В этом хрупком сосуде, что прежде
Был заполнен его душой
Еще теплится твоя надежда
Возвратить его домой.
Finished the game a couple of days ago and I highly recommend it to anybody thinking about getting it. Hellblade features probably the best combat I have ever seen in a game. It starts out quite easily, but trust me, it will get very challenging. The story and the narration are great, the emotions carried by Senuas journey are unbelieveable. I have never played something quite like it. Only if you don't enjoy horror games, this might not be for you as the second half of the game features lots of horror elements.
Ironic how Ninja Theory's Heavenly Sword was at the time hailed as a God of War-ripoff (wich I've personally always found really unfair), their DMC-reboot has been blamed along with everything else for making the series too much like God of War and now that God of War itself is going to do a soft-reboot of sorts and placing next chapter of Kratos' bombastic adventures into setting from Norse-mythology with a more character driven narrative, the original hack 'n' slash-gameplay revamped in favor of more cinematic walkaton-experience (from the looks of it anyway) and adding a third-person-shooter-esque over-the-shoulder-camera, Ninja Theory's newest game is a Norse-mythology inspired cinematic character piece told from over-the-shoulder-camera-angle.
Obviously this isn't intentional, nor does it make two games overall remotely the same thing and I sincerely hope they don't get the same type of backslash for similarities as they did with Heavenly Sword, since I'm really interested in this game and applaud what they are doing and attempting to do with it, but it's an amusing coincidence nonetheless.
Now these are what I call epic trailers! The graphics are breathtaking, the narration rivets you with every word and Senua's journey is utterly captivating. "Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice" is truly one of the greatest games I've ever seen.
I'm a girl and if you think that female protagonists are a rare thing and thus we need "more of them" then you're blind as a bat. They're everywhere. Actually I wish there were less of them because it was their rarity that made them something special. What you're doing is trying to make them common but make them still have the same "wow" factor they had when they were rare. Ain't going to work.
The thing u just described is not healthy at all. I will not ask u whats wrong with "celtic warrior"(bcz I think it's ok with that anyway , can't see SJW in here , only sick, poisoned with political bullshit mind would) . I'll ask did u ever created anything? These ppl, from ninja theory made a fantasy story with such love of details. Great animation , great work on sound, and I'm sure - wonderful story . So disliking this - is a disliking a result of work of many ppl, that created smth on very high lvl.
You know, it's funny how you talk about low standards and one comment later boast about one view "pumping your statistic." Hey, I just put a dislike on that vid, now you have one like, presumably your own, and three dislikes, one o which is mine, how's that for statistics? Maybe Risk will feel sorry for you and like your video. Now be a good boy and behave or I might put another dislike on one of your videos.
These are called cinematic trailers.
Also, this game is all about the story and it's narrative is not a linear one, it is, like Senua, shattered and displaced. We only have glimpses of her past live though her hallucinations and some flashbacks.
Purchase of this is dependent on the reviews. If there's one thing these current trailers have taught me it's not to trust the trailers. Remember it's a download. You won't get your money back if it's shit. Guess that's why it's so cheap.
You get this game through Steam so use Steam refunds if you need to. Its cheap because of the length (6-8 hours). Remember this team that made this is comprised of only 16 people though. Extremely independent studio. What they've done with this small of a team looks pretty incredible.
In this waking nightmare, where all things come true. We searched for control, a way to pull through. When your in love, you left him in tears, to smother your furys and banish your fears. That in darkness they can, through stormy black seas they raided these shores. Do you still hear these screams? And now, that your own(?), he's so far away, they've taken his soul.. to these gods you cannot pray. They can break you, but need your promise even death can't keep you apart. Through his darkness you will find him in your soul still beats, a heart. He fought for love and spoiled by your darkness within, he fought for your dreams and now there is no way to win. In the head of his corpse lies the seat of his soul. So he must carry his vessel to bring him back home.
Best guest effort.. hard to hear but creepy as hell.
In this waking nightmare
Where all dreams come true
You searched to control
A way to pull through
When you're in love you left him in tears
To smother your furies and banish your fears
But in darkness they came through storm and black seas they raided these shores
Do you still hear his screams?
And now that you're home
He's so far away
They've taken his soul
To these gods you cannot pray
They can break you but made you promise
Even death won't keep you apart
Through his darkness you will find him, in your sword still beats a heart
You fought for love and spoilt
By your darkness within
You fought for your dreams, now there's no way to win
In the head of his corpse lies the seat of his soul
So you must carry his vessel to bring him back home
Once again Hell is reaching deep inside of her
Stormy seas and lost souls
She's dreamt of this before
They say dreams are visions of our memories, thoughts and fears as seen by our inner eye
And what if each one of us is always dreaming, even when awake
And we only see what our inner eye creates for us
Is this what Hell is? A world shaped by Senua's nightmares?
Maybe that's why people fear seeing the world through her eyes
Because if you believe that Senua's reality is twisted, you must accept that yours might be too
seltsam das man das Spiel nur als digitalen download kaufen kann und es keine Disc Version davon geben soll.
Ob das heißt das es sehr kurz sein wird und man es schnell durchspielen kann? Ich werde es mir trotzdem holen denke ich, weil mich das was ich sehe richtig hart flasht ; )
Weil Ninja Theory das alleine ohne Investitionsgelder machen, deshalb versuchen die alles Geld, was denen zur Verfügung steht in das Spiel selbst reinzupumpen. Und die Devs sagen, dass "rein digitaler Vertrieb" für die etwas günstiger ist.
They said they made it a triple A title with half the length, they expect it to last 6-8 hours of gameplay, but that's why the price is only $30, I think it's a fair trade off, and if they want to offer more game for more money, I'll gladly pay if it's worth it.
Those demons killed her lover, and now she carries a sword with his heart captured within, and his skull around her waist where his soul lies. And now she seeks revenge! Its going to be brutal game as f!
"A feminist is one who seeks equality."
Hahaha... no. You 'd be hard pressed to find any feminist who isn't a massive sexist or to find any feminist campaign that has anything to do with equality.
Senua is definitely not a feminist. She's brave, she's tough and she is willing to make sacrifices.
