Soulstice does an exceptional job of keeping the player engaged throughout its entirety. The amount of content just within the combat is jaw-dropping, so much so that it feels like Reply Game Studios aren’t saving anything for a sequel. There’s a lot to discover (and a lot to master) as you slowly trek through its massive world and uncover one of the most enjoyable detective-style stories that I’ve come to experience.
Soulstice is a truly great action game, which despite taking many cues from stylish action titles of the past, carves out enough of an identity to stand out on its own. The system of controlling both sisters and maintaining auras while slashing through foes is intuitive and simple to master. Although the plot leaves many threads hanging, the development of the central sibling relationship and setting were enough to draw me into Soulstice’s world and want to see more. If you’re a fan of challenging action games and can forgive a slightly annoying camera, Soulstice is definitely worth checking out.
Do not play this game if you are not into dmc. The story is great, the voice acting and characters are memorable. The whole combo system is a tad too combo based since you can perform way better if you are not getting hit and are playing stylishly. Overall I thouroughly enjoyed my time with this from start to finish. I hope there ll be a sequel.
Soulstice from Reply Game Studios brings a strong story, a good amount of action, and paints a perfectly drab world to tie it all together. The backend gameplay design helps to add more value to the experience while motivating the player to keep exploring and pushing forward. The only caveat to the experience is the locked camera that will frustrate and hinder the gameplay at times. Overall, it’s a fun game, but it could use a fully controllable camera to make it even better.
The developers responsible for ‘Soulstice’ took a good look at the ‘Devil May Cry’ series. The dark, sinister atmosphere in the desolate world from the game is spot on, and you almost effortlessly conjure smooth and flashy battles from the controller. So where does it go wrong? In the way the camera works. It is mostly fixed, but jumps between scenes, suddenly taking you in completely the wrong direction. The clumsy and awkward way the game handles this is your most difficult opponent.
Soulstice does itself no favours by borrowing heavily from Bayonetta, and then falls short of its inspiration in every area. At best this is a functional but uninspired character action game. At worst it's a poor appreciation of the genre's finer points, stacking up systems that detract from the purity of exhilarating combat.
Heavily underrated. Who ever criticise it comparing it to DMC hasn’t beat the game. It’s a masterpiece and people are acting as if is a bland copy. The first 2 hours might be a bit stiff if you want every move immediately, but when it picks up it’s a blast. Must. Buy.
Characters and story is fantastic. Gets boring in the middle where the scenery and enemies are very repetitive with the game having you fight in the same town from start to finish. Combat is mediocre but at least the animations are cool. Music is not memorable but does fit the situations you are in to give a good atmosphere. Despite the flaws, it does an excellent job setting up a sequel and I do expect that one to improve on combat and enemy variety. Probably just wait for that to come out if you didn't get this game free on Epic Games.
Be careful with this game, which enters through the eyes and at first contact manages to entertain; but after a short time it becomes very monotonous and repetitive. Soulstice is a mediocre hack'n slash. I only recommend it for about €10
Blank, repetitive, wavy quality.
It's like the 100th version of the same story you usaly see in animes. Hot(?) girl gets inhuman powers to fight universal forces of evil, also her kind is being despised by others.
The level designs are so repetitive, I had the constant feeling of seeing the same map ower and ower again.
Animations are like a low budget disney series.
The characters also to be honest.
Even Stefanie Joosten's voice is somehow irritating after a while
Fight system is borring
Sabit kamera bu oyunun en büyük hatasıdır. Oynarken kendinizi kötü hissettiriyor, kusmanız gerekiyor gibi görünüyor. Güzel dünyaya ve renkli seviyelere bakmanıza izin vermez. Gelecekteki bir güncelleme ile düzeltilmesi gerekiyor
