Beautiful picture, outdated gameplay: Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 ratings

Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2

Alongside the game’s release, online reviews for the adventure action game Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II from the talented team at Ninja Theory have surfaced. The game has received a range of reviews from the press, with some praising it and others offering criticism.

The game has received high praise for its exceptional visuals, sound, and acting. However, some reviewers have expressed disappointment with the gameplay, puzzles, combat, and storytelling, which they feel are lacking innovation and depth.

VGC reviewer Jordan Middler observed that while Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II may have initially been met with excitement, it now feels more like a mere continuation rather than a fully realized sequel that expands upon the concepts of the original.


A joyless brawler that lacks interactive entertainment and a murky understanding of mental illness… but it also happens to have some of the best graphics ever seen on consoles.
