Metal: Hellsinger Demo (Gamer Without Sight Review)

The Metal: Hellsinger game is coming out very soon, and it has many people excited to play. It’s a rhythm FPS game which has you beatmatching to some incredible metal music in order to slay your demonic enemies. The more successful you are, the more metal the music gets.

More musical layers are added, including vocals, and the song advances as the level does. Thankfully, they gave us a free demo so we could get a taste of what the game was going to be like on release. As a fan of rhythm games myself, I decided to give it a shot as a gamer without sight. Here’s how it went. Let me just say right away that I didn’t have much luck with this game. I was unfortunately unable to get very far with what little I had to go on. I was able to defeat only one enemy, and I did unlock a path, but then I got stuck after that. The demons won the day.

Here are my pros: Fun metal music, voiced dialog, subtitles are available on default, we can hear where our enemies are, and our performed actions have their own sound. Not to mention if on a controller, it vibrates to the beat if and it seems like keyboard navigation is present.

Cons: No text to speech, no idea where to go without sighted assistance, not knowing what actions we’re supposed to perform. I still think this would be a great game if more accessibility were to be included and if the particular audience playing was a fan of Metal music.

For now, though, I’ll have my fingers crossed in hopes they make a patch with some accessibility features that would allow gamers without sight and other disabilities the ability to play.
