Conclusion: This Has no right to be called a GAME. A rough out line, a work in progress; at best. 12+ Who are they kidding there is no Adult content, nor blood for that matter. The gun points in an approximate direction and the enemy falls down. Sneak attacks are a total JOKE!
Conclusion: Definitely check it out -- it's a very good action game. I don't think it's Twisted Metal on water, but that's because it's a different game. If you're not good at these things in general, though, make sure you have friends to play the game with, because the campaign can be merciless.
Pros: The graphics are terrific, and the action is fast, yet strategic enough so that it's not plain button mashing. Multiplayer is fun, and the campaign -- after level 7 -- is pretty good. Frame rate is always fast, even in four player mode, which is a huge plus.
Cons: Unbalanced difficulty -- some missions are impossible, even on the easiest setting, while others are quite easy on any setting. The first seven missions are pretty dull, too, which can be pretty deceiving since they get better quickly after mission 7.
A decent game, and would make for a decent week's entertainment. It isn't great by any stretch mind.

Excerpt: One of the first Xbox games, Bloodwake wasn't treated to well by the critics or the general public. Not that it got much attention mind, near enough everyone was too busy with classic games like Halo and Dead or Alive 3 to really give it much time of day. I was pretty sceptical about it.
Summary: This may sound like a rant, but every single word of it is true. 1. My mate gave this game to me. 2. It was so bad I gave it back. That is how rubbish it is. The camera is twitchy, the characters say annoying things like 'wow look at that wave... cooool'.
Excerpt: Blood Wake is a definite twist on the vehicular combat sub-genre and the "Story Mode" makes the game worth playing. To begin, you play the role of Shao Kai, a war vet pirate-type guy set on avenging the death of his ex-comrades. There are two modes by which you can play: Story Mode and Battle Mode.
Summary: It's a fun game so long as you are not looking to usse your brain much. Just go around and shoot anything that moves, and some buildings tooo! The game can get hard at times put there are plenty of cheats on the net that you can use, if you can't find them, just get in touch with me.
Summary: Make no mistakes, the concepts behind this game are VERY simple. Pick a boat, choose which guns to put on the boat, shoot other boats. If that description puts you off, don't buy the game - it's a simple as that. If you're still reading however, I'll assume that that didn't put you off TOO much!
