Soul Sacrifice is cranky. Soul Sacrifice is surly poetry, like what you’d find in an angsty high-schooler’s Moleskine. Soul Sacrifice doesn’t trust you. Y’know, man, do what you want… but Soul Sacrifice really wishes you cared more.
These are the things that blew through my mind while coming to grips with the new game for the PlayStation Vita. Playing Soul Sacrifice made me wonder what’s rattling inside of the brains of the men who made the recently released title. The vibe that SS gives off is so bleak and nihilistic that it actually makes me concerned for Keiji Inafune and the people who worked with him to make the game.
