take the role of a former member of the Chosen,
elite servants of the god Tchernobog, cast down
without reason and stripped of power and
identity. The game's four episodes are a quest
for vengeance and understanding. Players first
seek out the other three chosen, then make their
way to Tchernobog's domain for a final
Multiplayer mode the player has the choice of
either cooperative play and BloodBath, which pits
players against each other in a fast-paced frenzy
that lives up to its name.
is Bitchin. I for one, really like the Duke Nukem
Game engine, because it is really fast, it is
almost too fast if that is possible. Blood is based on
the Build 3d engine, the same engine that was
used for Duke Nukem 3D. In fact the original
developer of the engine, Ken Silverman, is
credited in the manual.
you put yourself in Night of the Living
Dead that is what Blood is like.
The cultists are truly psychotic and the zombies
only want your brains, once you progress to the
other episodes it gets really tough there are
rats, bats, spiders, bloated butchers, fanatics
(meaner cultists), gargoyles, Hell Hounds, and
phantasms. And those don't even cover the real
bad guys. Don't think that you are going to be
able to jump into the water to save yourself,
because the waters of Blood are home to several
varieties of nasties including Bone Eels, and
Gill Beasts. The monsters in Blood are inventive
and nasty, you marvel at the genius of the
monsters as they are chewing on your recently
beginning weapon is a pitch fork, but you pick up
a flare gun and dynamite, machine gun, shotguns,
incinerators, and the powerful Tesla Cannon. Once
you have killed the zombie you can kick his head
around providing there is anything left (Soccer
anyone?). When you have the incinerator, blowing
zombies to bits is a riot. The Flare gun kills
the zombie but then the zombie erupts into flame
(think of the Torch from the Fantastic Four --
Flame On!) and runs straight towards you.
game play is really good, it is very similar to
Duke Nukem but better. Because the game plays
faster, the imagery is darker, and the rendering is better.
Duke Nukem felt very flat, but Blood does not
have the same problem. Blood incorporates a great
story, and immersive imagery and sound.
connectivity has not been left out of Blood, in
fact you can connect to most major online
services, through your modem or across the LAN.
You can have up to 8 players, playing in either
cooperative mode or in the BloodBath mode. In
Blood Bath, the objective is to destroy as many
of the enemy as possible. You haven't bathed
until you've had a BloodBath.
Blood team has made several enhancements to the
Build engine, one of those is that you can change
your key configuration in the game, and not
through a separate application.
is a very cool game, everybody should spill some.
If you like 3D shooters then Blood should be a
part of your collection. Buy it you won't regret
you are a concerned parent, Blood does have a
violence Lock out.
