The en­dear­ingly barmy and dis­gust­ing Soul Sac­ri­fice re­turns, with added con­tent, im­proved game-play and other wel­come tweaks. Its le­gions of fans will know that it fol­lows a hum­ble pris­oner who finds a liv­ing, talk­ing, fleshy, sen­tient book called Li­brom. By leaf­ing through its pages, you can re­live and re­write a story of us­ing spells, fight­ing mon­sters and choos­ing to “sac­ri­fice” or “save” their souls. Soul Sac­ri­fice Delta has the den­sity of menus, weapons and char­ac­ter aug­men­ta­tions of a role-play­ing game, but it’s mainly fo­cused on third­per­son com­bat. The brawl­ing is zip­pier and more user-friendly this time, with in­tu­itive com­mands and spells. And like be­fore, the ar­se­nal is var­ied and vast. You can also play co-op­er­a­tive mul­ti­player on­line. The graph­ics and sound ef­fects are as lav­ish as they are amus­ingly re­pul­sive and the story is over­wrought and fun.
