Video game number twenty seven: Blood Bowl

Game review number twenty seven in my 365 Games in 365 Days project is "Blood Bowl".

This review could end after the following three words: This game blows.

For those of you that would like a little more....we're talking about a turn based D&D style football game with Orcs and Elves here. Why the hell did I play this? Oh yeah... I played it because I looked at the box and it seemed kind of cool. The back of the box described it as a football/strategy game, and apparently...you could actually kill the other players on the field. I assumed it was some sort of fantasy football game....little did I know it was essentially D&D. I suppose that will teach me not to read reviews online first.

I have been playing for the last two hours and I can't even beat the computer on easy. You roll dice to move, your player will miss the pass if you roll the wrong number on the dice...it's ridiculous. You can miss a pass to someone wide open a couple of feet in front of you. Aargh.

Overall Score: 0.0. I can't remember if I've ever hated a video game as much as I hate this one. I feel stupid for even booting it....because according to my rules, I'm supposed to get at least one achievement before I choose to never play it again. I slogged through two hours of this piece of dog shit trying to get even the most basic achievement so I could quit, but I struck out big time. I finally had to put it down.

Worst. Game. Ever.

Edit: 1:49am on Saturday night/Sunday morning. So, I gave this another try this evening...after I realized that there was one achievement I could grab in the campaign mode. All you have to do is get a superstar player on your team. I did that by spending all of the money in my bank (I figure I'll never need it for anything else anyway)...so now I'm really done with this horse shit game, forever.
