    I need to leave this for a while. After losing my save data I have no motivation what so ever to start again. Really annoyed.

    That new DLC looks really tough - I think I'll park it for a while, but I did discover the other Forgotten Avalon Pacts - mostly decent fun, but I'm less keen on the Archfiend fights against the clock :|

    I've just about finished the 3rd (?) Magusar chapter (The one where the Author thinks Illecebra could be his mother).

    A small gripe is when some of the Avalon Pacts/Other Sorcerer Quests remain locked, and there's no indication as to what you have to do to unlock 'em.

    This game is *much* tougher than I thought it would be. Haven't played beyond chapter 1 yet as I've not beaten Sortiara yet! That said, I've got too much to play which leaves me spending my gaming time confused as to what I should be playing rather than just getting on with it!

    I've finished all the way up to Magusar and have about four Avelon Pacts to do. It is now getting unbelievably difficult, although I am now getting some fairly hefty weapons/magic.

    Brilliant game.

    Just tried the demo. Not really liking the graphical style or combat right now...

    FCUTA!

    After a 2 week holiday (virtually no gaming), I returned to SS this morning. I'm kinda lacking motivation to push on at the moment. I did a few easy missions, but I've got a bastard of a Werewolf archfiend mission, plus a couple more nasty ones.

    Think I might play something else ( Velocity Ultra?) and hope I regain my gaming mojo :)

    @Flying_Pig

    I don't think your mojo is lacking dood, I think it's just the game. Seems pretty quiet on this thread at the moment. I desperately wanted this to be amazing but for all its good ideas and awesome visual style it falls short of MH for me in almost every category. Back to Gods Eater and MH3U for me I think.

    You might be right. I guess I've just run out of steam on it, and the same-y missions and repetition haven't helped.

    I might return in a few weeks...

    I was recently gonna buy this as I thought I might give it a second chance, because after playing the demo I wasn't impressed, I knew it would be too samey to sustain a full game, enter-arena-battle-monster-defeat-monster and repeat over and over. But reading people's comments now the dust has settled just further confirms my initial fears.

    Sad face. I really wanted to like this

    Dunno mate, last time I expressed my concerns they were strongly disagreed with so maybe those people are still playing but not posting?

    @PeacockDreams - just to put some context around my comments - I hasve clocked up about 20 hours of game time, and the game does open up a lot after the initial (demo) missions.

    I am quite enjoying the demo of this but I'm at what I assume is the final level of the demo and can't beat it. Everything is so confusing, I'm not sure what the difference is between sacrificing or not, I don't understand how to recharge weapons either. Does the full game explain things a bit better? And how long is it? Just trying to work out if its worth getting.

    @AaronTurner - the demo is the beginning section of the main game. While it's not really explained better, the details of using and recharging offerings becomes clear over time.

    Essentially, you an recharge them in battle by sacrificing fiends or finding places to recharge them in the arena (glowing white when using Mind's Eye). But if you exhaust an offering completely, it cannot be recharged until after the battle has finished.

    Sacrificing in battle recharges your offerings and goes towards increasing the power of your magic. Saving recovers some lost health and goes towards increasing your overall health.

    I'm 20 hours in to the main game and am about half way through, but I do tend to play these things quite slowly. How much you'll enjoy the whole game depends on how much to like the battles and whether you can look past the inevitable repetition.

    Thanks mate, Ive picked it up even though I'm enjoying Gods Eater at the moment, PSP games like this are really good on the PS vita because you can remap the camera to the right control stick. Should have plenty to keep me going for a while anyway!

    Played the demo of this for the first time at the weekend. I thought it was good, although there's a lot to digest and the plot was a bit bizarre. Worth persevering with? I've very little experience of Monster Hunter or other games of that ilk.

    If I had the chance again I wouldn't buy it. I'd like to progress having bought it digitally but have not enjoyed it all that much. Didn't really like the demo either - more fool me I guess.

    Once you get past the demo section (i.e. the introduction) the game really opens up and the confusing elements start t make sense.

    My main gripe is the lack of variety and a very uneven level of difficulty. But then I did put 20 hours in, before putting it on hold...

    Edit: @Triggerhappytel - tell you what - how about I lend you my copy?

    @Flying_Pig
    I'm sorry about my late reply; I hadn't checked back in this topic. Thank you very much for the offer, but to be completely honest I will respectfully decline for the time being as I've got a huge backlog at the moment. Thanks again though; a very kind offer.

    A somewhat random question..

    Is there anyone who would consider themselves the biggest fan going of Soul Sacrifice?

    I'm a big fan. Love this game, it has great depth. I wish the Black Rites were more powerful though.
  • Deleted user 5 September 2013 12:15:10
    Thanks - will PM you.

    I picked this up again last night after a break and reading up some things online about it. Apparently there's a way of stunning bosses with combinations of attacks. putting them into 'hell mode' (i'm guessing that's the equivalent of freezing them with ice attacks) and then using the counter element to that to stun them.

    I couldn't get this to work though. Anyone had any success with it?
  • Deleted user 21 September 2013 14:13:11
    Started playing this again after a long break, managed to get into a co-op game which was good fun even though i was severely under-levelled. Any of you guys still playing it at the moment? Seems theres still a few people playing which is good.
