Poll: As Hellblade 2 Draws Near, What Do You Think Of The First Game?

We're now just over a week away from the first Xbox Game Studios release of 2024 in Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, so as the May 21st release date draws near, we thought we'd take a quick look back at the original game in the series.

Arriving in 2017, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice was a huge success for Ninja Theory, racking up fantastic reviews with both critics and players - leading to a very impressive Metacritic rating of 88 for Xbox One. The game received a visual boost for Xbox Series X and S a few years ago, and Team Xbox even used the sequel to highlight the power of the Series X when the console was first announced at The Game Awards in 2019.

Yes, we've been waiting five whole years for Hellblade 2 to come to fruition, but in the meantime we've been getting plenty of enjoyment out of the original game across multiple playthroughs - it's still as good today as it was at launch!

That's what we think at least, but we're keen to find out your thoughts about Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. Have you enjoyed your time with it on Xbox Game Pass? Would you recommend it to others? Tell us in the poll and comments.
