    Just completed the Hellblade thanks to it being added to Game Pass. I could write an essay on, not just how incredible this game is, but also how important it is. What an experience – up there with the greatest games I’ve ever played. Thanks, Ninja Theory.

      Anthony, I felt the same way too. Played on the Xbox One and X. Experienced an odd dashboard bug and 4k/enhanced visuals result in more fan noise than I’d like from a consumer device on the X but, overall, this game is a masterpiece.

    Got this on Game Pass because I wasn’t sure if I’d like it or not as I am pretty particular when it comes to games (don’t like many triple-A games, not because I’m pretentious but they just don’t… do it for me). I didn’t follow the website or read reviews or anything. I am writing a review right now that I’ll be posting to a site I frequent because I have never experienced a game that had me weeping like a baby before.
    By the end of the game, I was exhausted. Mentally taxed to my limit. There were so many parallels to my own life, and with my husband on deployment and finally accepting that I have my own “issues” recently… I couldn’t stop crying. I’m even getting a little choked up now looking back on it. That battle is one I’ve had a number of times in the past with my own monsters, right down to the cathartic battle where I’m using all of my strength to just destroy the things causing me pain (As a boxer and swordfighter, kinda literally). Obviously, I never tried to make these journeys with psychosis, I couldn’t imagine how difficult it would be to deal with that on a daily basis. But everything else I felt a connection with. With my own father, and my own loss. Senua captured the blackness that those things can leave in your mind and how badly they can affect you through your life.
    I got to the end out of desperation, and when I experienced it, I was happy it turned out the way that it did. I would do the same for my own husband if it were possible especially in his situation. But that’s just fantasy and the desperate internal reach for some kind of relief from an idea I’m too terrified to truly accept yet.
    I could write a book on all of the elements that absolutely has made this game my number one favorite even though I will never be able to play it again. You guys deserve praise for everything. The creature and character design, the sound and music (I could listen to someone play through this game over and over, you guys absolutely killed it as far as soundscape goes), the combat elements, the decisions you made on mechanics, your wonderful actress and how well she captured and expressed those emotions… I am stunned. Every single game developer could look at every aspect of this game for inspiration on how to approach their own games because everything contributed to the story and the ideas that you were trying to convey.
    This isn’t a video game, it’s an experience. And I’m glad I could make the journey with you. Thank you for making this.
