It's been called a spiritual successor, but I really don't see much that translates other than Kai's non-traditional mental state and the fact that there's a sword.

Despite the trailers and development diaries, I'm still not sure what exactly to expect, but I don't expect combat to be the primary focus, and it's certainly not an action-based hack-and-slash. It looks a lot more narrative driven and atmospheric, and I expected it to rely more heavily on puzzle elements.

But, I don't think anyone really has a good idea, and we won't know until reviews start to come in.

Im colourblind and cant read it at all lol. Im sure its great though. Looks like a good idea of a game, wonder if it will be good. I work in the mental health field and am interested to see how they handle this.

I'm still a little bit on the fence so I'll wait for reviews to see if they push me over. I will say I dig what the game is going for and like what it represents in the industry.

So stereo headphones would be the best? Honestly been confused with my playstation headphones with virtual surround sound as to what would be the best bet.

The development diaries Ninja Theory has done for the game have been great. I feel like I've learned a lot about game development just from watching them.

Is it irrational to have some doubt on the game due to the review embargo being on the release date? Every time I see this kind of thing happen it makes me think that the publisher has little faith in it and with this being self published, it makes me even more worried.

I really hope it's good though. The concept is right up my alley and the last trailer was fantastic. It's also great to see the sound being hyped up. I'm a sucker for some good sound design.

We don't know. Yet in my opinion since they're advertising the great PS4 pro support i'll just go ahead and say that it'll be 30fps on OG PS4

Following how the game plays and feels and the review embargo, which is basically lifted when it's already released, have me worried.

Edit: Great OT though!

Definitely suspicious especially for an indie game but TN always review around 8-9 so I expect the same here.

Not irrational at all. Waiting for reviews and feedback from game critics you trust is always a good idea =) It's such a shame when that feedback is forcibly delayed until post release, because it means I can never justify buying a game on day one in those situations, and I love helping out with day one sales figures for great games, especially when they're self published like this.

Beautiful OT.

This is my most anticipated game for the rest of the year so I'm day 1 no matter what, but I'm also really interested in how it reviews. Focus seems to be on story and subject matter rather than combat, something that doesn't always bode well with reviewers. Expecting divisive scores here.

no advance reviews? ok I'll watch them tomorrow. it's a shame I went crazy and bought 2 games this weekend. Anyways, here's hoping that Ninja Theory's take on schizophrenia is actually as involving a story as Heavenly Sword or Enslaved.

Yup been thinking the same.

You can look at it both ways.
Or the game is not great and don't want reviews to hit while it's not released.
Or they are using it as a marketing tool to get more sales. When reviews hit, you have a lot of eyes on your game and it's a good thing to have it available.

We'll see, hope it's the latter.

No. It doesn't really play like any of their previous games. It's very grounded in comparison. You have a dodge for all four directions, a few combos, and a couple of special attacks. There's no jumping AFAIK.

I this case (self-published) its more they were working on polishing right up to the absolute last second.

either that or not wanting streamers to reveal the whole game's story before people had a chance to play it.

Either way, this is next for me after splatoon 2

I have it preordered.

Been following this game for a very long time and it's exciting to finally get the chance to play it. I don't know a lot about how it actually plays in its final form, despite watching many of the early dev diaries, but I love the look and concept.

I'm anticipating a shorter game, probably 4-6 hours, and that'd be fine for the price. I hope it's great!

Really hope this is good. Ninja Theory have done right by me their past two games, and I'd love to see them make it a hat trick.

As an aside, since we're so far along since the game was revealed now, this early concept art is still the best design of Senua...

It's a shame they didn't quite capture the greatness of that original image (imo).

i like this concept the most too, and i liked the original 3D model more than what they have now as well. there's something that annoys me about the new face.
