    This game provides unforgiving boss fights with nothing to depend on but your skill, those fights are intense and perfect for anyone who is looking for a Souls like experience.

    Sinner draws inspiration from several existing titles, but stands apart with its unique approach to development by incentivizing the player to become better, instead of merely improving a character’s skill set.

    Even with its very short length, Dark Souls vets will find some entertainment here with its unique bosses and increasingly difficult gameplay. If you’ve been shy to try the genre because of its difficulty, this may be a good first step into it, as you’re not weighed down by hours of gameplay and exploration, and simply get to experience the best portions back to back, even if that does make for a slightly shallow experience with little payoff.

    It's clearly derivative but Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is not just a copycat. There are good boss fights, with the right atmosphere, but there's also an evident lack of connective tissue between the fights.

    While the comparison with Dark Souls is inevitable, this Sinner is a different proposition. Anyone hoping to come across a game like Miyazaki's will be disappointed.

    While it seems like it's missing a lick of paint to make sure that its aesthetics are as strong as its mechanics, it's still a smart step forward and a good example of how we can pay homage to the beloved works of others with originality.

    Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is built around an interesting gameplay concept, but it fails to add enough elements to make it interesting and deep enough. Moreover, an imprecise gameplay makes it feel more frustrating than really challenging.

It's a good new and interesting indiegame worth giving a shot! And it's free with game pass!! Expand

    I fell in love with the combat in this game right from the get go because it never failed to disappoint and it always felt satisfying when inI fell in love with the combat in this game right from the get go because it never failed to disappoint and it always felt satisfying when in full flow. The presentation side of the game has lots of little details included in both the visuals and sound design and this did make the gameplay very immersive. Each boss in the game has been extremely well done and defeating them always felt rewarding making them some of the best bosses I’ve ever faced. There isn’t a huge amount of content for you to get to grips with the content that’s here has been done well and the story is unique and interesting. Sometimes the gameplay can be really challenging but for me I think they have got the right balance of being fair and challenging at the same time.Every now and then the game suffers with a few technichal issues and these issues do take the gloss of the game a little. There isn’t a great deal of content available to you which means it is a little on the short side. All in all the Dark Souls series is a series that is loved by many and there’s been an array of different game’s that have tried to recapture the Dark Souls formula and ultimately failed. Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption thankfully isn’t one of them game’s though and whilst it successfully captures the Dark Souls feel it is far from being a carbon copy because it has its own unique and interesting mechanics included. Without a doubt my favourite thing about this game was the combat. The combat always felt satisfying and exhilarating and the sense of achievement when defeating one of the excellently designed bosses was off the chain. In face the gameplay on the whole was rewarding full stop and even though there isn’t a huge amount of content for you to get to grips with the nice balance of being fair and challenging at the same time will no doubt make you impressed with the content that is available to you. At the end of the day then even though Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption has a few technical issues here and there it still doesn’t hold the game back very much because the story and different elements of the game deliver to you an experience that is not only immersive but also very fun and enjoyable as well.

    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.

    Ils ont ajouté cependant une option pour avoir... moins de vie et moins d'endurance avant les combats de boss ! au cas où les masos en voudraient encore un peu plus... Evidemment, l'endurance se vide en 3 coups et l'interface est mal faite, contraire à toute notion d'ergonomie.

    Graphiquement, c'est plutôt moche (comme un Dark soûle) mais toujours fluide (encore heureux vu la pauvreté des décors). D'affreuses cinématiques en noir et blanc avec une voix off qui raconte n'imp' viennent ponctuer cette "aventure" à deux yuans, vide, plate et sans autre intérêt (?) que se faire chier après avoir payé. Car cette daube n'est pas gratuite !
