Soul Sacrifice Delta Review
More of the same?
Soul Sacrifice was released last year to the PS Vita and was well received by most. It was a unique game that was similar to Capcom’s Monster Hunter series. Soul Sacrifice Delta comes out this year, although it’s not a sequel. It’s like a director’s cut that adds and improves in some ways compared to the original game.
First off, Soul Sacrifice Delta starts off exactly the same as the original game. For returning players, you don’t have to go through this as your save file can be transferred into this game. For all newcomers though, you will have to play from scratch and familiarize yourself with the game first before you can get access to the new levels added in Delta.
Soul Sacrifice Delta begins in not a nice way and is pretty gruesome. Players will be introduced to an evil demonic type character called Magusar. Magusar imprisons mortal men and usually kills them off in brutal fashion. Many have tried to slay him, but nothing has ever worked. That is until the player discovers a book named Librom who hold the secrets to Magusar’s past.
Librom is a talking book and will be the player’s guide for the entire game. He will give you tips on how to play the game, and also a little more insight into Magusar himself. The overall premise of the entire game is to get stronger and know more about Magusar. By doing lots of quests and reading more about Magusar, you will then be ready to fight the man himself. You can even choose to fight Magusar near the beginning of the game, but this is just suicide as you will never defeat him without leveling up first.
One of the best things I liked most about Soul Sacrifice Delta is that you are free to create the look for your character whenever you want. In most other games, you create your character at the start and you’re unable to change their look any further. In this game however, I could create a female character and then change into a male character on the next mission. This is pretty cool if you’re like me and like to change things often.
