I have never played Blood Bowl, the classic board game from Games Workshop, but I've always wanted to. I've read and heard countless times that Blood Bowl is the best game GW ever produced, and playing in a tournament league always sounded like the most fun that could be had in the miniature hobby by the way people talked about it. Anxious to try to game, I picked up Blood Bowl Legendary Edition PC game when it was recently on sale.

The PC game plays exactly as the board game, and is simply a digital adaptation. Blood Bowl is a turn-based strategy game inspired by American Football and the Warhammer Fantasy universe (I've still yet to figure out if Blood Bowl takes place within the Warhammer setting or is an in-house parody of it). The objective of the game is to score as many touchdowns as possible, playing through 8-turn halves. Teams usually consist of a handful of different positions, a combination of muscle and speed. The Legendary Edition includes nearly all of the playable races featured in the board game, notably excluding Chaos Dwarfs. Because the computer does the calculations and dice rolls, the digital Blood Bowl allows players to focus more on strategy, anticipating opponent movements and preparing your own offensive and defensive tactics, as opposed to additionally cycling through charts or chucking dice. Blood Bowl also includes a real-time mode (which I believe is called "Blitz")--but its not what you might expect. Rather than being like Madden with fantasy characters, real-time is essentially a real-time tactics mode in which everyone is constantly in motion. It's barely playable, very difficult, and feels like it was tacked on simply as an advertising scheme.

The game is extremely difficult.

This game allows you to play a deadly version of rugby with a variety of mythical creatures common to "Tolkein" novels as well as more gothic horror creatures like vampires, mummies, skeletons, and wights. Every race has different strengths and weaknesses which creates variety to each match and insures replayability. Half the challenge of the game is scoring touchdowns on the pitch, while the other is managing your player roster and using your treasury to purchase gear, star players, and dirty tricks to give yourself a game winning advantage. This is the sequel to the first Blood Bowl video game and has nearly twice as many fantasy races available for teams. Blood Bowl works best as a turn based tactical board game, is not a NFL football simulator. It's tons of fun with a current-gen PC, but takes about 40 to 60 minutes to complete a match. It can be played against a decent AI opponent or online with a decent internet connection against a fellow human (for free, yea!).

I had known about the board game long before this game came out for the PC. I even had the old DOS based version of this game that came out some 15 year ago.

That did not prepare me for the sheer fun of this game. The original story had some dwarves and orcs stumbling on a stadium and finding some old footballers equipment. Thanks to a wise dwarf who managed to decipher an old "Nuffle" NFL) rule book and who declared that this stadium was used for some kind of religious ceremony for the high priest Roz-el. The orcs and dwarves decided to try a football game, only with some very modified rules.

The game itself plays more like rugby than football with a fast paced feel as both teams bash each other attempting to carry the ball into the end zone. The original rules are turn based, and the programmers have one version that holds true to those rules. For those wanting even more of a challenge, there is real-time play as well.

The graphics are solid, and although the voiceovers do become very repetitive, they are quite amusing at first. A lot of well considered effort went into making this game fun and challenging. It definitely delivers on that promise.

I'm biased. There's a nostalgia factor involved here that simply cannot be impressed upon those who never played the board game. This edition includes some of the more oddball races but it's still great fun. Irreverent sports commentators, semi-adult jokes, just plain bad humor with some good mixed in? Again, just great fun and tremendous replay value.

Love Bloodbowl, your American style football played by fantasy races violent/supernatural game. Very replay-able and fun game.

But you'd think after somewhere around half a dozen iteration/expansions of the game they'd fix some of the bugs/software glitches. The two most annoying are: When trying to save a 'formation' the game can leave a player off the field (without you doing so) that then gets randomly placed back on the field (annoying) because you can't place them from the sideline as you should be able to (annoying) even though it forgets to. The worst part about that is you really can't fix it once it's happened to a team until an undetermined amount of time (it fixed itself after either a full season had elapsed or I had to replace enough players that it corrected itself somehow). The other issue is the game simply crashes once in a while, maybe once every 3-4 games. So, save often if you want to avoid that becoming OVERLY annoying.
