Blood Bowl 2 smashes Warhammer and American football together, in an explosive cocktail of turn-based strategy, humour and brutality, adapted from Games Workshop's famous boardgame. Blood Bowl 2's new graphics engine and high-flying realization makes for a faithful portrayal of the fury and intensity of classic Blood Bowl matches. The solo game mode will have you lead the famous Reikland Reavers. Former star team of Blood Bowl you are tasked with bringing them back to glory, following a full story campaign supported by the hilarious commentators Jim & Bob from Cabalvision. Each match of the campaign is unique, with unexpected and surprising events constantly renewing the experience! The multiplayer modes are bigger and richer than ever. In the persistent online mode, create and manage your own team comprised of one of eight races from the Warhammer world – Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, High Elves, Dark Elves, Chaos, and the Bretonnia newcomers. You will develop your team, gaining XP and unlocking new skills. But beware! On the pitch, all losses are permanent... Organize entirely customisable championships, from qualifications to finale, and use the new Transfer Market to buy and sell your players, and build your Blood Bowl dream-team!
This game has the wonderful quality to make even quiet people a hobby choleric at some point. In no other game have I had such an extreme need to throw the mouse and keyboard against the wall and the computer out of the window. I don't want to...
start with hate speeches lasting minutes and despite the fact that I'm at least once close to playing this. . . game. . . from my hard drive and my environment enjoys colorful curses, BloodBowl is somehow enough fun to continue playing.
BloodBowl is in my opinion a challenging, turn-based strategy game in which sometimes luck can decide on a victory or a defeat, after all most actions are diced out and there is therefore always a probability to set the move completely in the sand and thus serve his opponent an unwanted advantage. At the same time, you sometimes have the obscure luck (or bad luck) that the game turns completely again in the last moves and urges you to pure acts of despair. And if these crazy desperate acts are successful and really exciting matches result from them, then the bad luck throws, the ones, the dead and injured players are only half as bad.
What is most fun to watch, however, when all this crap flies around other people's ears and you know exactly that he or she is biting into the edge of the table. . . .
BloodBowl is not a game I would recommend to anyone, but I would not strongly advise against it. If you tend to get frustrated quickly, then you should let BloodBowl stay. If you don't have a problem with having bad luck, kicking your leveled team in the barrel and getting your bell really ringing, you will have fun with BloodBowl.
