The Story

The plot of the game is very extensive and well thought out. Hellblade tells the story of Senua, a Celtic warrior who despairs after the death of her beloved. Desperate, she sets off on a journey to reach the hell of the Vikings and fight for her man’s soul in a deadly battle. During her expedition, she hears voices that scoff at her, but sometimes also suggest good solutions.

The game world matches the dark atmosphere of the game, which is full of anguish and depression. Hellblade’s physics are also a plus. You can see it during fights. The creators of the game will have you fight but you will also need to solve puzzles. You observe the game from behind the back of the protagonist although you can also turn the camera to see her face. The world is not open, so you have to follow the path the devs prepared for you. The lack of freedom is compensated with an interesting plot that emanates pain and fear.

The developers from Cambridge have created their work in a professional manner. During the development, the title was overseen by doctors, neurologists, psychologists, and, strangely enough, people with psychosis to reflect the atmosphere of the game in the most faithful way possible.
