Bloodforge review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The “God of War clone” descriptor gets thrown around too liberally these days, often haphazardly used to classify any third-person combat game not involving guns. We understand how diluted its meaning has become, and yet, we can’t help apply it to Bloodforge (though to be fair, Bloodforge is based...
  • Pros: How gore-geous it is, You can get 400 Achievement points instead of 200, Never being confused by the simple plot
  • Cons: Unforgivably clunky combat, A manic camera, The squandered potential

Bloodforge (X360) - Review

VGChartz
5 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Here at gamrReview, we have a very strict 'we don't review it until we've completed it' clause; it's a motto that all game reviewers should abide by, but there are some very rare instances when an exception can be made.

Expert Review

GameSpot
26 April 2012
  • Summary: Crom is angry. He has murdered his family, apparently tricked into the act by the god known as Arawn; and he wants vengeance. It's a familiar setup to put it mildly, and a certain other enraged hero has famously charted a brutal and satisfying course to revenge against the gods.
  • Pros: A few memorably hideous character designs
  • Cons: Tedious combat, Terrible, protracted boss battles, Underdeveloped world and characters, Distractingly wobbly camera, A number of minor technical problems

Review - Bloodforge

6 June 2012
  • Conclusion: It's all well and good producing a game that looks as good as any retail offering, but when that same game fails to stand up and deliver on the fundamentals - controls, character growth, gameplay - you can't help but feel anything other than disillusioned and dissatisfied.

  • Conclusion: Don't be tempted into giving this a try. As a free game, it would be overpriced, but for 1200 MS Points, you'll feel like a right mug. Bloodforge is a dated, boring, uninspiring, unimaginative offering that has no place in the frankly stunning line-up of games now available for the Xbox 360 - both...

Bloodforge Xbox 360 Review

DarkZero
2 May 2012
  • Excerpt: They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and there’s no doubt that development studio Climax has been inspired by Sony’s God of War series for Bloodforge . It’s not just the gameplay that’s strikingly familiar; even the story is reminiscent of Kratos’ revenge against the gods.

  • Excerpt: Rapakon takana tavataan sanoa, että imitointi on imartelun vilpittömin muoto. Jos tämä pitäisi paikkansa, olisivat Sonyn Santa Monica Studion pojat ja tytöt varmasti pakahtumaisillaan ylpeydestä, sillä taannoinen Xbox Live Arcade -julkaisu, Bloodforge, on God of War -imitaatiota puhtaimmillaan.
  • Pros: + Graafiset tehosteet miellyttävät silmää
  • Cons: - Temppuileva kamera, - Taistelu liian yksitoikkoista, - Tympeä tasosuunnittelu, - Rytmityksessä menty metsään

  • Conclusion: On serait tenté de dire que Bloodforge n'est qu'un petit jeu d'action mais ce serait clairement injuste pour d'autres titres ayant reçu ce genre d'appellation tout en étant bien meilleur.
