About Soul Sacrifice

Soul Sacrifice sees gamers reliving the memories of a sorcerer via a demonic book named Librom. Using items known as Offerings, gamers can conjure powerful weapons to aid them in combat against grotesque creatures, as well as sacrificing foes to feed the game's levelling system. Unique to Soul Sacrifice is the ability to sacrifice your own body parts to unleash devastating attacks against your enemies; however, you must pay the price by limiting your defense, sight and other aspects of your character.

Summary

Soul Sacrifice is a dark, addictive and brutal action-RPG that excels in aesthetics and rewarding combat. Poor A.I., repetitive foes and steep learning curve prevent it from reaching triple-A heights, however.

We like

  • Gorgeous level and creature design
  • Addictive, rewarding combat
  • Sacrifice mechanic is unique and adds strategy

We dislike

  • Lack of enemy variety
  • Poor A.I.
  • Steep learning curve

The brainchild of Keiji Inafune, who is perhaps best known as the creator o...
