  1. AceGamez
    Offers a wonderfully enjoyable narrative with slick controls and an absence of any significant problems. Where it falls down is its particularly ordinary presentation, which given the stylish nature of many titles in the genre, won't do it any favours.
  2. Overall, there’s no doubt about it, for original thinking, sheer enjoyability and taking steps that any developer would do well to follow, Blood Will Tell gets a comfortable must-buy rating.
  3. Play Magazine
    One of the richest, well-laid and detailed action games to come outu of Japan in years. [Nov 2004, p.68]
  4. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    Though absurd, the story is one of Blood Will Tell's best features. [Dec 2004, p.114]
  5. GMR Magazine
    If you're looking for something original, BWT fits the bill. [Dec 2004, p.129]
  6. While nowhere near as pretty and interactive, Blood Will Tell is the closest PS2 owners will get to having "Otogi" on their machines. It's a slick hack-and-slash adventure with a great story, beautiful art work, and intense combat.
  7. A game that will keep anime fans very happy, and offers enough little features to keep gamers happy too.
  8. At the end of the day it's best to simply grit your teeth and fight through the odd annoyance in order to gain a better look at the wider picture on offer. It seems that Blood Will Tell is hardly a classic, but it spins a gripping yarn none the less.
  9. Pelit (Finland)
    A decent samurai and sword action game based on Tezuka Osamu's Dororo manga. It is a little bit repetitive and the dated gameplay is disappointing. A few fun monsters, though. [Apr. 05]
  10. PSM Magazine
    It has a lot of polish, solid control, and nice attention to detail - it's a solid game. [Dec 2004, p.90]
  11. It’s a shame as there is a really good adaptation of the adamantium infused one’s story here and a little more of that X factor could have elevated Hyakkimaru into the ranks of legend.
