    Although the PC version is a faithful depiction of the board game, Blood Bowl was not a fair and balanced game from the start. Some races are pathetic (read goblins) and the AI seems to only have two tactics: cage the ball carrier or throw a long pass. Even on hardest difficulty, it is easy to play an entire season without conceding a single touchdown.

The graphics belong to a game from 2001, the sound is truly awful, the interface is ugly and clunky, the RTS mode is completely flawed and the matchmaking is completely hopeless. If you love the warhammer world and enjoyed playing tabletop bloodbowl, this game is for you. If not, steer clear of this ugly, repetitive game. Expand

    An over-priced, faithful interpretation of the original boardgame. With lackluster tutorials and inconsistent feedback from the game interface, this really is for Blood Bowl fans only. This is only compounded by the awful real-time mode which is if anything, a step back from Cyanide's previous title Chaos League.

  1. Blood Bowl features some interesting ideas, like introducing a real-time component to the universe of the board game. Furthermore, it really achieves the look and feel of the miniature game, providing a experience that resembles the original product without any doubt. Despite the fact that this is a product that fit good the fans liking, it can be interesting for every kind of gamer. Only the real time mode, that quickly become a nonsense melee is a visible drawback for a good planned and constructed game.
  2. The game can be quite challenging, especially in the round-bases game mode, but after one week you've seen all the game has to offer. Nonetheless it's the perfect game for small tournaments from time to time and to give elves a good thrashing.
  3. In conclusion, the version of Blood Bowl we played was rather impressive, however if you despise American Football but love the universe, we do suggest you take a look at the game due to the Warhammer references and items.
