    The animations are visceral, and the buildup of suspense knowing that any hit could remove your player from the game, or remove him from existence, keeps you on edge.

    A good digital version of the tabletop classic, Blood Bowl 2 mixes good humor with tactical depth.

    All in all if you are looking for a fun strategy sports themed game with a multiplayer focus, this one might be worth taking a look at.

    With its dice rolling it lacks the dynamics of modern videogames and the lowgrade AI might kill all the fun in offline play. But if you compete online this is a faithful recreation of the tabletop game.

    While the superb atmosphere and the sheer (and surprising) tactical depth easily manage to engage anyone somewhat interested in strategy and/or Warhammer games, this one of a kind symbiosis of fantasy football, over-the-top bloody humour and smart gameplay does struggle with console hardware, loading times, rather mediocre graphics and an annoying DLC species roster.

    An improvement over its predecessor, but falters just enough to stop it from becoming an integral strategy title. [Issue#167, p.96]

    Blood Bowl 2 is the flashiest iteration of the game so far, but its dice rolls are frustrating, and its amble ruleset isn't introduced well to newcomers.

    The core mechanics of Blood Bowl 2 are still solid. No surprise considering they haven't changed since the board game came out. UpdatedThe core mechanics of Blood Bowl 2 are still solid. No surprise considering they haven't changed since the board game came out. Updated graphics are nice. Presentation is pretty good, but like any sports game, the commentary is limited to generic comments and gets repetitive fairly quickly. The league play is a nice addition, making online tournaments and friendly leagues simple to organize. The biggest issues I have with the game are that it is missing many of the races from the previous game (which will be coming out as DLC at an unknown price point) and it is missing a lot of the little things that gave the previous iteration flavor. The stands are filled with mostly humans, and the monstrous races don't get their own cheerleaders. I was hoping to see flavor enhancements along with the graphics update, but it actually regressed slightly in that respect. As an updated version of digital Blood Bowl, it is a fine game that is still fun to play, but it is almost certainly overpriced for what little improvement it offers over Chaos Edition. Expand

    It also needs more polish. I really advise you wait for the inevitable 'complete' pack (look what they did with Blood Bowl 1).
