    Sinner is totally anonymous from the point of view of the lore and "is inspired" excessively to the design of the most famous bosses of the soulsborne saga.

    A series of interesting boss fights clashes with the general treatment of the Chinese indie game, lowering the quality to the point of not doing it justice. Nevertheless the challenge offered brings with it great intuitions.

    The problem is that I couldn't connect enough to the game to care about the fight and was only rewarded with frustration in defeating the bosses.

    Sinner does what it sets out to do and looks fine enough while doing it, but it just doesn’t feel like its own product, and given how unique the premise is, that should speak volumes on how forgettable Sinner’s core battles actually are. I love the concept, but I hope someone eventually does something more interesting with it.

    What Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption ultimately lacks is the kind of flexibility and variety that makes the Souls games so engaging. I actually think that Sinner’s bosses are interesting, well-designed and sort of terrifying, and in the context of a game with a fleshed out story, character-defining progression and better pacing, those bosses could be memorable level-ending encounters. In its present form, Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption feels like a proof of concept tech demo that badly needs to have a real game built around it.

    Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is an ambitious game that brings something new to an increasingly popular style of action game.

    Not only is Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption a shameless rip-off of the Souls series, it also manages to be a downright irritating game with very little payoff. Unless you want to show off your boss fighting skills on Twitch or something, I suggest avoiding this game entirely.

Inspired by some of the best game already in the market and religion. It take all the good point and make it in a little good game. It's a dark soul-like, every mistake is a punishment. Boss are memorable and have special fight mechanics. It's not an hard game at all, 6 hr and it's done. So why everyone think it's a hard game? Because everytime you kill a boss you'll do a sacrifice, that mean you'll get a malus, like less damage, less defence etc. And you'll keep these malus the entire game.

    This game have some good idea, but too short.

    Hey guys, just go play dark souls again, it'd be more worth your time then this. The boss design is the only thing i can compliment about thisHey guys, just go play dark souls again, it'd be more worth your time then this. The boss design is the only thing i can compliment about this game, but everything else from the combat to graphics and story just lack. the background is always a blurry mess and the controls seem kind of unresponsive times. My biggest gripe with the game is how the aim system and camera works, you have 0 control of the camera at all times, even when not locked on, and your character wont swing at what your locked onto unless you manually turn around at the enemy. For certain bosses the camera needs to be better, for the greed boss fight I didn't know there was an OFF SCREEN HOUSE that you can rest on to avoid getting poisoned, i only discovered this when trying to throw myself off the map, and apparently that house is detrimental to the fight, thank god its off screen though. its a shame to see a good concept go to such waste.

    The artificial difficulty, lack of customization and items, lack of character depth, brutally unforgiving camera angles, lack of engagingThe artificial difficulty, lack of customization and items, lack of character depth, brutally unforgiving camera angles, lack of engaging story, questionable hitboxes, lack of reward system, arena pitfalls everywhere, snail-like pacing of the protagonist, and lack of character poise --just to name a "few" problems with the game-- make for an evanescently enjoyable experience that sadly leaves you wondering, "Why am I even trying to beat this game again?"

    Given more effort and time from the devs, even for a Soulsesque title, this could have been a winner, but its potential is ultimately adumbrated by its egregious ignoring of critical details. A future patch could improve things, but right now, the biggest sin in this game is not to be found by any of its unfair Alighierian bosses; the sinner is not even you, as Adam or the player yourself; the biggest sin is in this game's hurried, unpolished execution.

Just like every chineze product this game is just as fake and bad as it could be. Horrible camera, horrible controlers, And dont get me started on the parry. This game was made by amateurs for a quick cash grab. Believe me you dont even want to bother trying this buggy game not even worth a penny. Expand
