Every once in a while, a game comes along that relies heavily on religious iconography for its story telling. Usually, these games also come bundled with some degree of controversy (whether intentional or not), and they run the risk of scaring off gamers who see the use of their beloved beliefs as nothing more than mythological fantasy exploited for entertainment purposes. Party of Sin doesn’t appear to have an anti-religious agenda behind it. More likely, it seeks to marry old school platformers with the modern gaming conventions we have come to expect from action puzzlers.
There is both some good and bad to report about Party of Sin. The controls are stiff and combat is simplistic and boring. Fortunately there is a whole lot of interesting puzzle gameplay that redeems Party of Sin from the Hell it would otherwise deserve.
