Game Reviewers Stunned by Hellblade Photo Mode 

Many game reviewers and analysts are stunned by what Hellblade offers in their photo mode.

Semir Omerovic, while writing at AltChar, said he was impressed with certain features, such as the lighting tool within the photo mode.

One thing that did leave me impressed is the lighting tool, which allows players to place manual light sources in the scene to light nearby objects, characters like Senua and the brute she's fighting in the video,” he said.

Furthermore, he mentioned that virtual photographers could now change the position of the characters by rotating or moving them.

“A bunch of filters are also available, so you'll get to choose from the original game look, black and white, horror, and many, many other filters,” he added.
