Over the weekend I got the chance to play Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice and all I can say is WOW... This game is a true masterpiece in VR!

Hellblade has everything that I look for in a great game. The graphics are absolutely beautiful, the sound engineering is some of the best I have heard in a long time and the gameplay and combat are solid. Playing this game I just couldn't believe that it was not built from the ground up for VR!

I played it on 2 different PC's and I'm happy to say both performed well in this game. My main rig is an I7 7700k, 16gb ram and a GTX1070 and at the highest settings it ran butter smooth. My other rig is an older i5 4670K, 16gb ram and a GTX980 ti FTW edition and with this rig at the same settings the game did seem to struggle a bit in certain scenes but these hiccups were very few and far between.

So if you are looking for an awesome new game to play in VR and love the third person adventure titles then you owe it to yourself to give Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice a look!

    It can be quite a tough game - like Dark Souls 3 - not sure it's a great game for casual players; did you find time to check out all the combos?
    Intel i7 7700K (4.5 GHz); MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Gaming X (oc 2100 MHz boost, 11 Ghz ram); 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 MHz; MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon AC (VR-Ready) mainboard; Samsung 960 Evo M.2 SSD + Toshiba P300 HD; Windows 10 OS; Oculus Rift CV1 - nearly always using super sampling 2.0.

    It's good that such games are being released. Not my thing, but I'm sure it will be popular - especially with younger VR gamers.
