Blood Will Tell

Thunderbolt Games
2 February 2007
  • Excerpt: Meet Hyakkimaru. He’s the epitome of the generic video game samurai hero. He has the stoic attitude befitting of an ancient Japanese warrior, a stylish robe that flows along with his smooth moves, and a single katana that can cut through just about anything. He quietly traverses the countryside, fighting injustice in its various forms, saving innocent people from the morally corrupt and certain death, and trying to figure out his place in the world.

  • Excerpt: Whilst looking for a title to compare Sega’s Blood Will Tell with, I couldn’t really come up with very much. Of course, there are your third person hack-and-slash titles such as the excellent Dynasty Warriors series and a sea of lesser-known bog-standard releases, but the title that I finally settled on – no matter how tenuous the link – was the Megadrive edition of Shadow Dancer from 1990.

Blood Will Tell Review

VideoGamer.com

  • Excerpt: This is one of those games that make it damn near impossible to flesh out a cohesive and well-structured review, thanks to the fact that it's so mind-numbingly mediocre. It's just there . Unlikely to change the world in any way, shape or form, but thoroughly inoffensive - it would be cruel to slag Blood Will Tell off within an inch of its life, but it would be ridiculous to hail it as anything special. Can you see the dilemma?

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Sure there are some flaws with the camera, and platform sections can be slightly irritating, but the bulk of the hack and slash play is enjoyable enough. Character design is top notch; it's just a shame that the script and English voiceover sap your interest in the story. There are better games similar to this, but the hook of killing demons to regain your humanity is at least an interesting one, enough to keep you playing.

Blood Will Tell Review

GameSpot
21 September 2004
  • Excerpt: Inspired by the Dororo anime series that dates back to the '60s, Blood Will Tell is a third-person action game in which you assume the role of an unusual samurai named Hyakkimaru. "Unusual" is something of an understatement, actually, given that the focus of the game's intriguing storyline is Hyakkimaru's quest to regain 48 body parts that were stolen from him by demons (known as fiends) as an infant.
  • Pros: N/A

  • Conclusion: Blood Will Tell follows the story of a young warrior, whose name is Hyakkimaru . As a child, his father was a real meanie to him. Not like a normal father, making him play football on a December morning when it’s minus fifty outside, with grass harder than a diamond, then making him scrape the mud off of his football boots afterwards, oh no. To Hyakkimaru, minus fifty degree football is heaven.
  • Pros: Lots of action., Enjoyable to play., Many moves and upgrades.
  • Cons: Doesn’t really do anything new., The camera system., Constant loading.

Blood Will Tell PS2 Review

DarkZero
2 November 2005
  • Conclusion: This is a game that I enjoyed very much, despite the terrible main camera and the average graphics, the charms of story and the uniqueness of the characters make it a different game from most on the market. It can get a little repetitive early on, and you are doing the same thing throughout, battling one boss to get a body part, but once you gain some new abilities the game can change considerably for the better.

  • Summary: Sega tackles a new samurai title, but this time our hero has swords for arms and a bazooka for legs… Confused? So were we.

  • Summary: With some more work Blood Will Tell could have been a ripper. Instead it is only average when stacked up against some stiff opposition in the genre.
