Product Description

DECEPTION IV: BLOOD TIES follows the story of Laegrinna, an animated fragment of an imprisoned Devil's soul, as she battles her enemies by mischievously luring them into strategically placed traps. From rolling boulders and spiked walls to spring boards, iron maidens, human cannons, falling bathtubs and banana peels, the player can choose from a multitude of dramatic, sadistic, and comical traps in order to finish off an enemy. However, simply setting traps is not enough, as they need to be activated in turn. Timing also plays an important role, as an untimely activation could result in Laegrinna falling into her own trap or allowing her rivals to catch her. Depending on the manner in which an enemy is killed or captured, the Devil's three servants - Veruza, Caelea and Lilia (each representing a different aspect of cruelty: Sadistic Torment, Elaborate Death and Humiliating Demise) - reward points and upgraded traps.

"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.

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.

Tried to love it, but just couldn't get into this series. After reaching the 2nd chapter I gave up on this game, the difficulty was a little too much for me, especially due to long-range enemies...And, did you know that the game doesn't save in between missions? This means if your on the 2nd section of a mission & you die, you'll need to start from the beginning of the mission. I found this to be too extreme, in the JP version they have mid saves, yet in the NA version they removed this...

This is one of those games that you really have to be in the mood to play, but that isn't to say that you won't have fun. This is a game where you set traps for the unfortunate souls that dare to attack you, all while you're running around the same area. In the beginning (as in a lot of Japanese games) a great many concepts are tossed at you and it will feel overwhelming. However, there is a tutorial if you find yourself needing assistance and you will most likely learn a lot through trial and error. You'll also quickly find out that you aren't invincible, and even your own and the stage traps can hurt you. Of course, through experimentation you'll know just how to use the stage to your advantage. Early on you are limited in the type and how many traps you can have out at once, so you have to plan a bit ahead although the game starts you off with some weak enemies with little to no resistances. Through fulfilling requests you gain specific experience and more cash that can be used to buy new traps and powers. I know, this sounds disconnected, but stick with me. There are three types of traps: Elaborate, Sadistic, and Humiliation. Each has advantages and disadvantages, and it is up to you, the player, to combine them in ways to crush your enemies (or just get a good laugh).

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.
