Metal: Hellsinger takes you on a journey by means of Hell as you blast your method by means of waves of demons to the beat of a steel soundtrack. We already know this system works – in any case, Doom Eternal was our Game of the Year in 2020 – however Metal: Hellsinger provides a musical twist to the combination. Similarly to BPM: Bullets Per Minute, you’re incentivised to time your actions to the beat of the tune – the extra in sync you’re with the music, the extra harm you deal. But does this mechanic do sufficient to separate Metal: Hellsinger from its influences?
Narrated by Troy Baker, Metal: Hellsinger tells the story of the Unknown, a demon on a quest to reclaim her voice from the Red Judge, ruler of the Hells. Though Baker’s cowboy impression is incredible, it’s not sufficient to make the story fascinating. To reduce a protracted story quick, Unknown is an unstoppable drive who goes to nice lengths to get what she needs.
