Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice PC Performance Review

4K Screenshot Graphical Comparison

Looking at low-quality settings we can see that Hellblade's texture work can simply look awful, with the game seeing a sizable upgrade in texture resolution when moving to medium. For the sake of your eyes, we recommend that nobody plays Hellblade with Low texture, especially given the low VRAM requirements of the medium preset. 

Moving from Medium to high we can see a huge increase in distant details, especially around the distant fire which becomes much more detailed when viewed from a distance. Here we can also see a depth of field and chromatic aberration effects come into play, which will likely annoy some users given their lack of graphical options within the game. Both of these effects can be disabled with .ini file changes. 

At very high the two main graphical changes are with ambient occlusion and foliage density, which are both notably changed when moving from high to very high. These changes can be hard to notice outside of a side-by-side comparison, so we would recommend that players play at lower graphical settings if they want a higher/steadier framerate.

Not surprising it favors Nvidia. Most Unreal Engine 4 games do because of how closely Nvidia and that engine team work togetherQuote

The only thing keeping me away is the controls on PC. I've already heard they're awkward, game is better suited to a controller, etc. Same thing I heard about the Witcher 3 and that turned out to be bang on, so I'd be hesitant to buy this. God how I hate console ports! Too bad though, this one looks like it's EXCEPTIONALLY well done, with a great (and unique) story / setting / character.Quote

Witcher 3 is fine without a controller. It plays better without one. I used a controller and it was setup nice but I prefer the keyboard.Quote

If I am playing a console designed game I usually use the controller. Well, for stuff like Fallout 4 etc any way. If it's a FPS I use the KBM. IIRC I used my Xbone controller for Witcher 3 too.Quote
