A puzzle platformer

Battle between heaven and hell was aways a good theme for video games. Such games as Messiah, Bayonetta and DmC are good examples of such titles.

Party of Sin, however is quite a different take on this genre. Most of the previous titles set in such themes were action games, but Party of Sin is a platformer with a lot of logical elements. You are controlling a group of sins, and you have to get through many different levels - hell, purgatory and heaven. Each sin has unique abilities - think about it as characters from Trine. To pass each level, you will have to use the abilities in certain situations. It also features some action elements, for example fighting with enemies, jumping on platforms and stuff.

The graphics and sounds could be better, but nevertheless I had fun playing it. For few bucks it is worth it.

A good game for a couch coop evening with friends.

This game supports couch coop for up to 4players and I can't stress enough how much this game benefits from being played in multiplayer.

The Good: It has fun mechanics every sin plays mostly differently and you will soon have a favorite. The puzzles can be very tricky alone, but in coop there are lots of fun solutions for a given puzzle. You can buy upgrades for the different sins.

The Bad: Its animations are very choppy and the models have a very low poly count. The combat isn't too much fun until you figured out and mesmorized how to switch quickly between sins. The game is very short and it is completed in about 4hours, so it is a perfect match for a couch coop evening. There are sadly only two upgrades per sin.

Summary: All in all a friend of mine and me had a blast playing it, because we had lots of fun situations, where we did something stupid and just laughed. If you can see over its technical flaws in animation and graphics, this should be on your list for a couch coop evening.

Classic platformer, on a budget.

If you’re a fan of Trine and games like Super Smash Bros. then you’re going to love Party of Sin! It is a fun beat-em-up 3D platformer with a fair unique art style, which is slightly cartoon based but has a charming and rustic feel to it.

Party of Sin has a lot of replayability to it and the many different characters (or Sin’s) are all unique and you will love every single last one. Each with their own unique abilities and style you need to master to use them, it makes it far more interesting.

The multiplayer aspect of the game is possibly the best and most enjoyable way to play, rather than solo, as working together and using the different Sin’s abilities together is a lot of fun and works well. Would certainly recommend this game, and is an absolute must-have for Trine and Super Smash Bros. fans if on sale!

Good game

This game is a sort of Trine. You can use and switch between different characters (or Sin), each with its own powers. to solve puzzles and advance on the level. Since swap thing can be boring, you can play with a friend on coop and make your life easier. The graphic is pretty good but doesn't reach the magnificent of Trine 2 one, and the soundtrack is nothing special, but the game really worth the price. It's not too long (canonical ten hours), but it is a very funny experience.
