    With silly, zany, over-the-top gore and, well, blood abundant, this classic PC FPS takes the formula of Doom and sets it in an ersatz Evil Dead world with one-liners and elements clearly inspired by zombie horror slasher flicks. Blood is not groundbreaking or technically amazing, but it is enormous fun.

    The most outstanding shooter of 1997.

    This game was awesome, it's not nostalgia, the game was real cool, the train level was just pure awesome, a jewel of the past, back when developers knew how to make games.

    I WILL LIVE AGAIN!!
    That incredibly classic quote reminds me OF this game!! Despite how hard a couple of the chapters are--even on the easiest difficulty--although it really builds strong the Survival/Horror genre!--fighting you way through these maps, trying not get to be killed before you get to lay the shots, getting to pitch dead heads on the ground... just such piece-fullness!!
    The
    story is great, the sound effects are spine-tingling, and the action might just scare the crap outta you!

    This game is difficulty, but it is still at least worth the play! How about a bloody 7.5 to go with THAT head!! You can also find this review at http://s-me.weebly.com/blood.html!

  1. If Monolith could have tied the level design and action more closely to a real storyline, worked to smooth the engine a little, and created a few new types of monsters, Blood might have risen another notch or two up the 3D food chain. As it stands, the game is a little too uneven to be successful.
  2. By far the most extraordinary feature of Blood has to be its sound effects. They are nothing short of incredible. 'Manamax and spear books,' the cultists shriek, alongside something not dissimilar to the word 'bollocks'. The zombies endlessly crow about 'Brainssssss'. Set a fanatic on fire and he screams like a girl: 'It burns! Oh god it burns,' before melting into a heap of steaming entrails accompanied by the appropriate popping and sizzling effects.
  3. Blood is everything "Quake" should have been. It offers unparalleled single player gameplay, dozens of beautiful visual effects, tons of new weapons, and killer multiplay. I've had more fun playing Blood in the past day than I have playing any other game in the past year.
