    The game had some good ideals but.

    This game for all the rewards it won was a let down. Not only does the cut scenes far out last the amount of time you spend playing the game. The final boss fight the game take over controlling what part you get to fight. I was fighting and noticed thay she was not doing what I pushed the buttons for. I put the controller down and she was still fighting. That not me playing. It was a story that aloud you to think you were playing parts of it. That doesn't make a game. The good ideal was the lack of quest marker and the use of sound to move you along. The puzzles which was a big part of this was not that good at all. No I would not tell anyone to get this...What makes this even more of a slap in the face is they put it on free play. I could not but resell it for $9.

    Nothing like it

    Though this game will be available on XBOX Gamepass, I wanted to own the physical copy as I do nearly all my titles as a collector. This game visually is stunning. It’s very intense and is not for children. It’s about a Viking warrior dealing with her loved ones passing. The combat is not as frequent as I expected. Which isn’t a bad thing. It’s atory based driven. There are however plenty of puzzles. I for one didn’t have the patience so I YouTube most of them. The game is a satisfying action adventure. If you like puzzles it’s definitely for you. I would recommend Hellblade. There’s no game out there like it.

    Brilliant, haunting

    As others have mentioned, the games approach to the subject of mental health disorders such as schizophrenia and psychosis is thoughtfully researched and implemented. This was reason enough for me to take a chance on the game. On the XBox 1, the graphics are stunning. Gameplay wise, the swordplay is compelling but challenging, though some of the games puzzles get maddeningly frustrating. Every bit worth your time, more of a Silent Hill/psychological horror title than a Resident Evil/action horror title. Even still, there’s nothing quite like it on the market.

    This game I picked up on a whim, After playing it for a few days I can say I like the game. The graphics are awesome as is the atmosphere of the game. Best played with good surround sound or higher end gaming headphones as the audio in this game is very creepy and is very much a part of the game you must experience. It’s a Viking story game so it may not be for all. I personally have not played any games related to Vikings but this game has me wanting to keep playing it.

    The game is beautiful and engrossing. The only problem that I have is that the game case was damaged with a blade, I guess trying to get the box open they dug way too deep while opening the box and damaging the game cases in the process. Unfortunately it was the last game. But they should be more careful because I didn’t get a discount for it.

    An Emotional Journey Into Mental Illness

    Hellblade is a tale of a woman who suffers from a mental illness. While it would've been easy for Ninja Theory to create a game that stigmatizes this illness, they handled it with care, taking the player on an emotional journey through the mind of Senua. Along with the superb storytelling, you'll explore beautiful, sometimes dark & mysterious, landscapes that truly push the Xbox One. If you have an Xbox One X, this looks glorious in 4K/HDR.

    Short, But Sweet Action Game

    Hellblade was originally released digitally by Ninja Theory (makers of Heavenly Sword and DmC), but now there's a physical release at a nice budget price. It's one of those games you don't really want to say too much about for fear of spoiling the experience, but I highly recommend picking it up if you're a fan of Ninja Theory's other games. I also recommend wearing headphones.

    A very spooky atmosphere surrounds this game but after all the main character is going insane. Play this wearing headphones to get the full affect. This game is different in a good way. The puzzles can be a bit frustrating but not horribly difficult. The battles are a lot of fun while all of Senua's voice are jabbering in your head. Buy this!

    This game is a different type of play, be forwarned. I like that it just takes me along, I don't like that if I can't pass a certain area I lose and have to start all over again as it doesn't have a save right before. Creepy, suggests headphones for listening to the voices in my err.. her head so you can hear them for clues.

    One of the most moving experiences I’ve ever had in a game. Make sure to use headphones for full auditory experience as it’s VERY important to listen to voices/cues your tv won’t provide. Play this game blind without knowing anything. Combat is good, puzzles have their purpose and story is forever in my soul.

    This game is one of the best I've ever played. I have purchased it for PS4, Xbox (2x), and Steam. And I can't wait for it to come out on Switch where I'll be purchasing for a 5th time. I love this game and am throwing as much money at the developers as I can.

    The developer's care to bring the real life issue of mental illness into the Senua's character raises this game into a must play experience. A truly indie game, self funded and published, the passion of the developers really shines through here. An experience you must have.

    Am surprised this game didn't get more press. This game is a departure from others in its genre, but a welcome alternative. Emotionally stirring, good concept, and experience that's out of the ordinary from other gaming experiences.

    Fantastic story, fun gameplay, and a team Microsoft believes in to the point they’ve added them as a first party developer going forward. Really though, this is the best game from Ninja Theory yet, and I’m excited to see where they go next.

    The game recommends wearing headphones and you better do it!! The graphics are stunning, the story is interesting, and the voices all over will mess you up. Plus the permadeath makes the game wonderfully scary, too.

    This is more of a story driven game and headphones are absolutely recommend. intense and somewhat horror with all the voices. Combat is very simple but smooth and the enemy’s become harder throughout the game.

    Main character dealing with obvious mental health issues, and the struggle for mental health was as much a component of the battle as the fights, weapons and action are. Societal issues should be incorporated into more games.
