Though it did have some flaws I easily put more than 100 hours in the game. When Delta was localized I was very excited. I've played so far about 5 hours and let me tell you this.
If you enjoyed Soul Sacrifice, you will LOVE Delta. Its improves in every single way of SS.
First thing you'll notice is a bump up in resolution. It's still not native but its a really big graphical upgrade. No more rough edges it all looks really clean. The game is absolutely gorgeuous.
Next thing you'll notice is way more depth to offerings. Now you can combine attacks offering way more methods of tackling enemys and just improves the fun ten fold. Not only that but there is also new offerings like the spear! Hard to master weapons but very satisfying to use.
The new monster designs based on Grimm Fairy tales Characters are amazing. Soul Sacrifice never dissapoints in that matter. You will never look at little red riding hood again in the same way. The new level designs are just amazing and now there are more variety of smaller creatures, so no more demon cats and rats everywhere
They now added a new faction to the game called Grim that appeases to those that like to stay neutral. Depending on which faction you are in you will get different offerings meaning everybody is going to have a different inventory of offerings.
The story is still relatively the same, but now you have to do some grim , avalon and Sanctuary sidequest before being allowed to play Magusars arc. These sidequest actually act as a bridgepoint between Sortiara's and Magusars arc, expanding a bit more on the Sorcerer and his interaction with the world and other NEW sorcerers only found in Delta.
Delta is a major improvement over SS in every way. If you got SS free from PS+ and loved it buy Delta now and support the devs
If you bought SS and just liked it not loved it, then wait for price drop. Since its nots a full blown sequel more like a relaunch with a buttload of tweaks and improvements, making it the True SS experience.
For the love of god people ignore ArioX and especially WIzard4en "review". The former probably thought Delta was Soul Sacrifice 2 when Inafune said many many many times it was more lik Soul Sacrifice 1.8 and the latter is just a Monster hunter fanboy enough said.… Full Review »

May 19, 2014Soul Sacrifice Delta is much more than just an update/expansion to Soul Sacrifice (SS).
It adds some much content to the original game andSoul Sacrifice Delta is much more than just an update/expansion to Soul Sacrifice (SS).
It adds some much content to the original game and improves so much stuff that it catapults the game
to the top entries on PS Vita. (I would say second best after Killzone.)

It is just awesome! And in my opinion, a lot better than Monster Hunter.
Well worth the money, even if you already have SS.… Full Review »
