    fixed camera movement and unpredictable framings strike down Soulstice tragically. Exploration is hard with that unpredictable and unfriendly behaviour and you lose interest very soon in the game. Really horrible

    it's just a flat imitation of Bayonetta and Devil May Cry with no soul, nothing new to the table, flat narration, messy combats and especially poor fixed camera choice

    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!

    Camera is really annoying because most of the areas oblige you to play with fixed visual. The framings are from high distance most of the time and change quickly as soon as you reach the edge of the screen, so the result is constant headache! I don't recommend playing it, unless they solve the issue

    Ich kann nicht verstehen, warum sie sich entschieden haben, die Kamera festzuhalten! Diese Entscheidung zerstörte die ganze Schönheit dieses Spiels. Sie können nur auf dem Bildschirm sehen, was diese dumme Kamera entscheidet! Sie verpassen schöne Details, Sie verpassen auch sehr häufig Beute wegen dieser albernen Kamera. Andere Dinge sind gut: Kampfstil, Grafik, Sounds, Gameplay. AberIch kann nicht verstehen, warum sie sich entschieden haben, die Kamera festzuhalten!

    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

    Acho impossível brincar com aquela câmera que não se move. É muito desconfortável e a cabeça dói. Uma atualização é urgentemente necessária para resolver o problema

    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

    La caméra fixe a beaucoup gâché l'expérience de jeu. Non seulement cela rend très difficile l'exploration des scénarios de jeu, mais cela vous fera gravement mal à la tête. Vraiment dommage qu'ils ne s'en soient pas rendu compte avant de sortir le jeu

    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.

    Personaggi ed ambientazioni ottimamente caratterizzati così come la storia che saprà conquistarvi. Gameplay divertente e solido con l'unica pecca delle inquadrature che a volte possono causare problemi. Stile anime spettacolare.

    The year is 2022 and the crappy fixed camera system doesn't suit this game at all. I condemn the company for choosing such a promising game as stupidly camera pain

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

    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.

The camera is also one of the worst I've seen in an action game in recent years. Hope they can get these things fixed. Expand

    Offsetting complaints about the camera. Fixed Cameras allow for a lot more art direction that a smaller studio can handle.

    Soulstice has great old school vibes but it may fall short of what it was trying to achieve. It can be frustrating at times and after a while I found it more frustrating than fun. For those who love DMC/Bayonetta, I’d definitely say give it a go, but beware that you will be sinking hours into the game.

    Soulstice feels like it is from another generation but it is still a good looking, modern game that plays well. The combat is fluid and challenging, the backdrops are amazing at times and the story is intriguing. However, Soulstice does get a bit 'cut and paste' after a while and getting to grips with the camera is always a hassle.

    Soulstice is a classic hack’n slash, a solid technical section with some bugs, a frantic and dynamic combat and an interesting story. But with an excessive duration.
