4.0 out of 5 stars Deceptively Complex March 29, 2014
Format:Video Game
"Don't judge a book by its cover," is the old axiom, but to some extent, its hard not to do that for video games. Games aren't like books, really, as they're far more expensive and much more of an investment of time than your average novel. So aside from review scores and some gameplay footage, it can difficult to not judge a game based upon what it says right on the tin, because you want every little scrap of information you can gather before you take the monetary plunge of purchasing a new game.

And yet with "Deception IV: Blood Ties," I can't help but warn consumers against judging this game by its sexual trailers and glossy cover art. This is not your average "otaku-bait" game, with moronic fan service and a pedantic plot. Staying true to its namesake, this game deceives audiences into thinking it's just that, when in reality, it's one of the most complex, challenging, and entertaining games on the market.

Players step into the high heels of Laegrinna, a part of the Devil that has been broken off and given physical form. Or, to make things less complicated, she's the Devil's daughter. And seeing as her father was banished thousands of years ago by twelve saints, she wants to bring him back in order to spread evil across the land, or so it seems initially. With the help of three Daemons that represent Elaborate death, Sadistic death, and Humiliating death, she lures people into various lairs in order to get 12 pieces of a seal that, once reconstructed, will help bring big poppa Lucifer back into existence.

Yes, just like the other "Deception" games, this title puts you in the role of a villain and expects you to revel in it. However, it must be said that "Blood Ties" does a very good job of helping you empathize with the characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Mix of Challenge, Strategy, and Depravity. March 26, 2014
By K.S.
Format:Video Game
As a first time player of this series, I am genuinely impressed with what I've seen so far. The game has you play as Laegrinna, a fragment of the devil's soul. Your job is to lure enemies into your demonic lair, and guide them into your intricate chain of traps and devices. The traps come in three categories; sadistic, elaborate, and humiliating.

The main story consists of 12 chapters that so far seem a little on the short side. They also feature no breaks between each chapter, so the save state function of the vita is very beneficial. Each level has several enemy types that are weak or strong to different trap types. Each level also features a wide variety of demonic challenges that can net extra xp depending on their difficulty. These features can add a lot of challenge for those who wish to complete all of them.

Besides story mode there is also Free Battle and Mission Mode. Free Battle can be useful for practice and to help clean up trophies if that's your thing. Mission Mode on the other hand features many challenging levels that can really up the play time of this title and add two new costumes for completionists.

Overall Deception is a neat little title that definitely stands out from a lot of other games currently offered on the vita. It's niche presentation may not be for everyone, but if the gore, depravity, and dark mode seem interesting, this game deserves a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging, fun, unique gameplay April 16, 2014
Format:Video Game
Have you ever wanted to do more than just eliminate your enemies in a video game? Have you ever wanted to torture your adversaries by making them walk through bear traps and humiliate them with a pie to the face? Well, do I have the game for you and your oddly specific and disturbing desires. Deception IV Blood Ties for the PS3/PS Vita is a sort of real time strategy game in which you defeat your enemies utilizing a variety of traps and environmental hazards throughout the levels. This game is FUN. It's very unique and original compared to any other title out there that's been released recently.

Story
The story follows Laegrinna (who is the spawn of Satan) and her three companion witches. Each of the witches represents one of the category of traps in the game, Humiliating, Sadistic and Elaborate. The four of them are after the pieces of some kind of ancient relic that when put together can be used to bring their master, the devil himself, back to power. Countless soldiers and heroes try to thwart the protagonists by marching like lemmings into deathtraps. I give them an “A” for effort but that's the best I can do.

Gameplay
The gameplay consists of placing traps throughout the levels on a grid. The three witches also give you optional challenges that reward you with extra points. There are multiple rooms to each level and each room has it's own hazards or traps you can set off as well. The most effective way to dispatch your enemies is to use traps in combination with each other. You rack up more points and experience if you can successfully land hits on enemies with trap combos. For example, you put a bear trap in front of a door. When some unsuspecting fool walks through the door BAM he's stuck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, fun. April 14, 2014
By Fred
Format:Video Game
I'm a huge fan of the Deception series of games and own them all. I just bought this and followed up with the PS3 version and they are basically the same, but I have to say the Vita version looks smoother and plays better overall which I found surprising. These games have you take on a dark personality in the main characters and you must kill your pursuers by using various devious traps to pummel them to death in combos which earn ARK points etc, it's addictive and fun since there are almost endless variations in how you kill the victims. I've already beaten this game about 7 times so I know it's playable and fun.

In all honesty I'm just glad they made another game, but I'm also disappointed that apparently the Kagero Deception games will never go further in realism regarding gore and graphics. This game is far behind modern graphics capabilities and relies on the classic addicting gameplay mechanics to sustain interest in the game. The traps are more basic, and you can only upgrade them once indicated by a star, but I don't actually no what that means since it doesn't upgrade the power/performance stats? anyway...

As a fan I had to add this to my collection and hope they keep the franchise alive, but It doesn't look like they will ever evolve the game graphics to the next level. Even the camera for setting traps still moves in a clunky way lol.
