    Terrible fixed camera completely ruins the game. It makes it impossible to play comfortably

    I had awful frustration in playing the game with that foolish fixed camera. I literally felt nausea and vomit stimulus. Stopped playing it after just half hour

    it's a generic action-adventure game with no inspiration at all, flat levels, boring dialogues and boring characters

    If you like the old style of god of war and the playstyle of devil may cry this is your game, very fun game.

    Great game! Missed old fashioned hack n slash vibes. Combat it's so fluid and weapons feel great to use. Of course it has its flaws but for me is 10/10. Brave team!

    camera is locked and you lose sense of exploration, reducing so much the fun factor of moving freely around your character. The game is clone of Devil May Cry but it doesnt' succeed because it lacks charm, plot and design. The result is a poor representation of an action game with strong limitations (camera, stuttering during battles, poor upgrades) and recycled ideas

    Reply Game Studios you should fire the person in your team who implemented that stupid fixed camera in Soulstice. It would have been truly a masterpiece without that cancer. Unfortunately, it's only a game to forget, one of the most annoying in gaming history

    ärligt talat, Soulstice är ett banalt spel. Den kan inte fånga dig, strid är rörig, dialoger är tråkiga. Men det största problemet är fasta kamerarörelser. Det begränsar mycket utforskningen av nivåer och huvudet gör ont!

    Poor camera motion affects this game. You're not allowed to move the visual when roaming around, which is a bothering factor due to levels complexity and enemies getting stronger and stronger as long as you progress. Unfortunately this aspect jeopardizes all other aspects because gameplay gets troublesome all the time

    Amazing title. Love it so much. If you love dmc and bayonetta you’ll love this game

    ¡Jugarlo durante 40 minutos fue suficiente para darme un terrible dolor de estómago con esa horrible cámara fija! ¡No se lo recomiendo a ningún jugador!

    A very solid entry in the hack and slash arena. Gorgeous character design, tense combat, and a great story to boot. Soulstice also features a really cool dual-character mechanic with a fairly robust skill tree for one of the characters with no respec penalties, which is pretty nice when it comes to combat experimentation. Fans of the genre will not want to pass this up!

    Great, surprisingly deep combat, very dark and detailed atmosphere, nice voice acting, interesting plot and dialogues, meaty content with many missions. All that for 40 euros. We get full priced ""triple A"" garbage games for double the price. For me it's a masterpiece. The only slight hic up its the locked camera but it is way overblown out of proportion ,it ain't that bad as people say.Great, surprisingly deep combat, very dark and detailed atmosphere, nice voice acting, interesting plot and dialogues, meaty content with many missions.

Also the facial details could be a bit better but for the price its a very minor complain. I bet people who bash this game have never played the game more than the demo or something. 9/10 . Absolutely steal of a game. Expand

    c'est une mauvaise imitation de Bayonetta et DMC. La caméra est inconfortable et fixe, lorsque le personnage bouge, vous avez la nausée. Les visuels sont incohérents et irritants, donc déplacer Briar et Lute est un cauchemar. De plus, l'interaction avec les autres personnages est basique et plate.

    Great art style and amazing cinematics, it's a spectacles for eyes!
    Combat pace and camera management can be improved, but it's really satisfying slashing everything.

    The game, for how much it costs and what it offers (It is not made from a triple A and I don't remember they ever compared it to triple A games) it works, it is entertaining and it is visually beautiful. Clear has flaws but I don't think it's something that ruins the game.
    I liked it

    Camera is fine, game is fine. Nowhere near deserving of this negative review bombing. Bringing balance to the Force.

    I really wanted to like this game, I love DmC type games. But the game just isn’t that good. The combat is enjoyable and that’s about it, the level design is bland and repetitive, story isn’t good, camera angle I don’t think is as bad as other people are saying but it does feel outdated. This game would be worth on PS Plus maybe.

    Some people compare this game to the Devil May Cry series, however it is very far from that. The main characters are arguably the worst part. They have no charisma and are written very poorly. The combat is repetitive and the graphics are merely serviceable. Sound is ok as is the enemy designs. However the game feels rushed with a some bugs. Perhaps this can be fixed with a patch.

    +Grafik ist gut
    -Feste Kamera ist schrecklich!
    -Level-Design ist gut, aber durch schreckliche Kamera ruiniert
    -Schlachten sind verwirrt und chaotisch
    ~Erzählung ist meh mit langweiligen Dialogen
    -Moves sind schwierig mit zwei Charakteren gleichzeitig auszuführen
    - Originalitätsfaktor ist null, Spiel kopiert von Bayonetta fast alles und es kopiert schlecht!

    People complaining about camera should stop playing hack n slash and go for casual puzzle games. Soulstice is super fun and reminds me of DMC. Visuals are stunning and audio's lit af

    Soulstice is a beautiful hack ‘n slash that falls short in areas such as world building, pacing, level design, and art direction. However, it establishes a shared combat and exploration system between two characters in one that, by itself, makes it surprising and challenging.

    With Soulstice, the developers at Reply Game Studios have probably created their most ambitious game. Nervous beat'em up set in a universe reminiscent of the Claymore manga, it plays on the duality of force fields (evocation, banishment) and a mix of exploration, puzzles and action for lovers of the genre. Unfortunately, the lack of means is felt over the length and we very often complain about a badly adjusted camera and obvious technical problems (slowdowns, excessive copy-paste, textures from another time, etc.). Not to mention this permanent juggling at the level of the side keys of the controller. In the end, Soulstice is a game far from being uninteresting, but which is reserved for fans of the genre and amateurs of scoring.

    Soulstice feels – in a good way - like an action game of the past thanks to its brutal and intense action. As this continues to develop well, it manages to keep you playing. The downside, however, are the puzzles, as they are uninteresting and the level design feels a bit odd at times, which disrupts the flow. Some things to keep in mind, but the overall package is definitely to be appreciated.
