Rise from the depths a crumbling kingdom and to the challenge of defeating increasingly difficult demonic bosses. Choose aspects of yourself to weaken before defeating the avatars of Sin in the action-RPG Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption.

A lone warrior stands on a strange shore, his mind clouded and his past forgotten, but an unstoppable force drives him on. He is Adam, guilty of a great sin and drawn to this place by powers as secret as they are terrifying. As his home, the Kingdom of Cavanis, languishes in blasphemy, Adam must face a series of trials in a desperate quest for redemption.

Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption has a few clever new ideas, but it doesn't quite feel like a complete package.

6 / 10

Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is a bonafide boss rush buffet with an inventive twist, though its aesthetic presentation quickly grows dull.

4 / 10

Unfortunately, it is let down by some of the design choices and difficulty that will you feeling unfulfilled. There will be some who love this game despite this, but it crosses over the line from challenging to unfair and sets up shop there. It is hard to recommend a game that doesn't even feel like it wants to be played.

5.5 / 10.0

A weak try to get a "Souls" style that doesn't work in many senses. A game in which we face eight enormous enemies, hard and cruel... and basically, that's all. Technically poor and with a unstable playability.
