I think Microsoft saw we are playing this, and added it to the game pass

It's been on there at least since around E3 when I subscribed. That's what put the game on my radar. But yeah, good way to play it for free this month if you are a subscriber.

I started the game yesterday. So far I like the story but the walk, fight and open door puzzle, rinse repeat. Style is kind of repetitive. I hope it gets a little more game play as I get further into it, but right now not thrilled with the game play.

Well, I hate to tell you this...

I was not a huge fan of the puzzles but I loved the combat. It seems like a lot of people like one and not the other. The good thing is the game is pretty short and does introduce new minor gameplay elements as you go along.

Honestly I don't really consider "find the Rune(s) to unlock the door" a puzzle, I think its more in line with forced exploration. This wouldn't be too bad if there was more to find instead of just the shrine's you can focus on to hear stories from your dead lover. The combat is okay, however I absolutely hate the shield enemies, as they are currently the bane of my existence.

For the shield guys, have you tried doing the melee attack? It momentarily knocks them back and leaves them open for a sword attack. Even with that they can be a pain.

I have not tried that. Iíve been dodging to the left/right and taking a swipe at them. They just seem too resilient.

I really want to join you guys. Been striking out finding a cheap copy up here though and international shipping is kind of a deal breaker. Hope I luck into one shortly so I don't miss this month.

Digital version is still full price. More than I'd like to spend unfortunately.

I got back to the game yesterday, I just finished the 4 trials. I have very mixed feelings about Hellblade. It looks and sounds fantastic. The voices in Senua's head are so well done and playing it with headphones is great... however, I wear headphones all day at work, when I'm walking outside, when I'm commuting, at my computer. The last thing I want to do is put on headphones when I'm relaxing and playing a game on the couch or in bed. That's the biggest reason I put the game down for months. Without the headphone experience everything's a little less good.

I really like the combat. I generally don't enjoy very deliberate, parry based combat but for some reason it works for me here. But again, the full sound experience is really needed to know where attacks are coming from.

The puzzles are initially interesting. I like the idea of perspective puzzles, but they all seem to overstay their welcome. My interest in doing the puzzles wanes the further I go into the game.
