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.Read more ›
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.
Long story short, it's a good game with a challenging element. Some people may find it addictive, but this is the type of game you can "overplay." If you get in a groove that's fine, but don't play for hours upon hours and you'll get the most enjoyment out of this game.

Never played the previous ones so can't comment from that side. Anyways, the game is fun. You set up weird traps to kill or capture your enemies. Read morePublished 7 months ago by bman
I had to choose between this version and vita version. They are identical I'd recommend the vita version because it plays on vita and ps tv. It doesn't take much disk space either. Read morePublished 9 months ago by animefan9231
They should have described game play, not happy with purchasePublished 11 months ago by knuckles magilacutty
Nice graphics, but very repetitive. There are no options to customize traps (Like in the last game). You can only buy them the way they are.Published 12 months ago by Paulo Ricardo Koronfli
I've never really played puzzle games like this one but after the first 5mins I can say I'm hooked and plan to play the rest of them and even stream themPublished 12 months ago by TrophyDoctor
