An interesting visual style helps to compensate, at least to some degree, for play that’s not bad but perhaps a bit too familiar
With its distinct stained-glass-styled visuals, medieval setting, and decent platforming action there’s no question that Saga of Sins is capable of making quite an impression. Looking to rid your local populace of the sins that have taken them over, you’ll play the part of a cleric who has returned from the Crusades and is able to enter their minds to purge the temptations that have afflicted them. Taking one of a handful of forms, each with its own style of play and powers, you’ll take on generally old-school platforming action, looking to collect coins that will help you unlock new abilities and discover the secrets people are hiding. The fact that you’re able to also enter the minds of the innocent opens doorways to different and often more puzzle-oriented challenges, and who you choose to work on will also influence the flow of the story and what endings you’re able to discover. If you find the premise intriguing that should go a long way towards making the experience more worth it, but if you’re just looking to satisfy your action platforming fix the play may feel a bit on the generic side, with better potential options available out there to you.
