Feel free to add more to this score if you’re a big metal head. The soundtrack by Two Feathers and a series of metal artists, like System of a Down’s Serj Tankian, will undoubtedly delight fans of the genre.
A bit like a metal album cover brought to life, Hellsinger’s hand-painted cutscenes look cool, and its rendition of the eight Hells is suitably dark and grim, and there’s a decent variety of fiery environments to explore and demonic enemies to slay.
It may take you a little while to master shooting in time with Metal: Hellsinger’s rhythm, but once you get the hang of it, there’s a great deal of gratification to be had, as your multiplier rises and more of the music kicks in.
Eight stages of Hell, three Torments for seven of those levels, and plenty of loadout options to experiment with. You’ll probably rip through Metal: Hellsinger in about 4-5 hours, but there’s a fair old dose of replay value.
Much of the list is connected to merely completing the game, but there are a handful of objectives here that encourage different approaches. That said, there’s an achievement for completing one of the Hells without missing a single beat. What madness is this?
