    With frantic action, Bloodstroke manages to perfectly evoke John Woo's explosively entertaining take on Hong Kong cinema.

    A fast-paced action-packed on the rails shooter, John Woo's Bloodstroke is a commendable work of art.

    At its core, Bloodstroke is an unapologetic and noirish journey through Woo’s universe. Its streets may be bathed in black and white, but after a few rounds as Lotus, all you’ll be seeing is red.

    There's precious little substance. [Apr 2014, p.78]

    Aside from some stylish visuals, John Woo’s debut on mobile gaming feels like a big disappointment: Bloodstroke is a repetitive and uninspired action game, flawed by some really incoherent design.

    Bloodstroke is promising on the surface, but is much too shallow to recommend making it one to skip as it never evolves beyond the mindless simplicities. In the end, it’s a simplified version of Samurai II, which is a much better game to pick-up.

    Bloodstroke is a stylized collection of half-realized ideas that don't quite live up to their potential.
