    Bloodborne takes the best of Dark Souls and builds the unrelenting gaming challenge on a prefect foundation - it will test your abilities to the max. The first true must-have exclusive for PS4 is here. [Issue#252]

    I want to keep playing, I want to discover its secrets, I want to fight every monster, try every weapon, discuss theories and explore as many of the community dungeons as possible. To put it bluntly, I want to bleed the game dry.

    FromSoftware has a unique style when creating incredibly well-designed worlds. The new offensive combat system gives a fresh start to the series, and while it is more direct in its conception, it doesn’t lose an ounce of depth.

    A dark and engaging adventure, with an excellent combat system, an ideal dose of innovation and fascinating exploration.

    Bloodborne is an incredible game; tight in its mechanics, logical in its systems, rewarding, intense, gloriously frustrating and exciting in equal measure. The PS4 has its first absolutely essential game. As if there was ever any doubt.

    In its current state, it feels like it caters too much to the twitch experts, and doesn't bend for the rest of us. A challenge that feels like a learning experience is welcome, but Bloodborne too often felt like it was kicking me in the balls and leaving me helpless to do anything about it.

    This game is smart in all aspects, I fell in love with the bloodborne from the first second of the game,
    Best soundtrack, EXCELLENT lvl design, all locations are somehow connected to each other, bosses in the game, as in all souls games, as a separate art form.
    This game is absolutely worth your money and your time invested in it

It's extraordinary and exquisite and a huge cut above your average game but it isn't a better souls game. It's much on par with DS2. Long load times and frame rate drops along with an easier NG than most souls series games (Although an extremely difficult NG+) it boasts a wide array of enemies and is really good but it falls short of DS1.

    As with many Souls games this is yet another flawed masterpiece.
