SINNER: Sacrifice for Redemption does possibly everything wrong that every soulslike game before already mastered with ease and delivers no surprises or any gameplay achievements worth mentioning. Besides the solid idea behind the boss rush this game doesn't really offer anything.

Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is without mercy. Instead of getting stronger you get weaker, taking on deadly enemies to rid the world of sin. It's a challenging and sometimes infuriating gauntlet that requires you to think twice about your actions.

Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption makes dying interesting. The level down system puts a fun twist to the Souls-like action RPG genre

Sinner steals ideas and art design from From Software and also fails on almost all other levels with a sluggish, delayed combat system, a miserable camera and bad technology. Nobody needs this cheap copy.

Regardless of its minimal shortcomings, Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is a hugely fun injection of hardcore combat, and well worth the time of those looking for something fresh.

Overall, Sinner will start you off without knowing what to do, and it will continue to push you through harder and harder challenges while still not really knowing what it's all for. The game is currently available on Discord, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for $18.99 USD. Is it worth even that? Maybe it is for someone who wants to play a Dark Souls type game with no levels to go through. It isn't a big cost so it is a little bit more palatable than say a sixty dollar game.

In short then we can say that we are facing a Hamlet doubt about the final. On the one hand we have in fact a game with excellent premises, which has many interesting features, first of all the combat system. The way in which it is structured and the care of the bosses, in fact, make us on the one hand hope for a total success of the game. On the other hand, however, we find some untreated features, which needed very little to succeed, like a little care of the environments and a story left a bit 'so. From this title we would have expected a little more on this front, in order to be able to live a complete experience that, so, remains little more than mentioned.

7.8 / 10.0

Overall though, Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption was a pleasure and a breath of fresh air for the style. While I absolutely love the Souls Series, Bloodborne and The Surge, not having to deal with the environments and instead having all of the effort put into epic boss fights made for a lot of fun and frustration that comes with having to learn and adapt that quickly to rapidly changing situations.

What’s depressing is that the game has so much untapped potential. I have no doubt that it would have been something amazing if there was more time to polish or add to what it already has. Sadly, we’re stuck with what we’re given with.
