5.0 out of 5 stars A gem January 19, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Overblood is a sci-fi adventure with a taste of horror. The scares aren't laid on thick. Instead the horror in the game comes mostly from an eerie mood that being alone in a large, abandoned facility creates. There's not the kind of tension you find in Clock Tower or Hellnight, where there's something constantly stalking you. So the mood depends mostly on the story, and the game really has a great story. It's not long, but I can appreciate that. The puzzles in the game are pretty good too. Of course, the graphics are not great by today's standards, but if you're looking for a solid game that may have slipped under your radar back when the PSone was in its heydey, you should definitely give Overblood a chance. I played this game for the first time about two years ago when I was on a search like that, and I still thought it was great. It truly deserves to be played.

Don't be fooled by any past claims about this game falling under the title of Survival Horror or being horrific in anyway; despite its name, there is very little horrific about OverBlood. However, just because it doesn't live up to false claims, doesn't mean it's bad. In fact, it's actually quite a good Adventure game and it has some fun moments. It does have a double-edged blade however and while the adventuring and narrative are sharp, at times they're a little too sharp.

For one, you have to use almost everything within your humanly power to avoid dying as every event, enemy and puzzle means your life. The only problem is if you don't know what to do, what items you need or where to go when the crap hits the fan, then you will end up making a quick acquaintance with the Grim Reaper in this game.

One aspect about the game that bugged me was the simple fact that your main nemesis in the game are natural disasters that happen almost randomly. I guess natural disasters isn't the right word as you are accosted by deadly sewer water at one point, but the sheer, unbridled randomness of such encounters gets exasperating after awhile, especially when you have to escape from a crumbling cave on a jet ski (something that Resident Evil 4 unknowingly ripped off and made more infuriating and unnecessary).

The enemies you do encounter in the game are few and far between which breaks up the adventure aspects so you can punch or shoot your way to victory, but there's really no atmosphere or consistency with it and considering it's the only moment in which you have a life bar, it makes the instant death 'you vs. mother nature' aspect unfair in comparison.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bringing a basic veteran gamer review May 5, 2010
By Unit543
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Now I never wrote a full review for any game and this would be the first..So please do not discriminate. That being said I have seen too many bad reviews for this game by AMATEUR writers. This game came out in PS1's prime,also something new for everybody since 96 I believe. This came out only a few months after RE1. (March-August) The graphics were not great obvious but for it's time it exceeded many feats. The sound and vocal casting sets the mood around every corner. An odd twisted story just getting more weird,a game where it takes more skill than brawn. The story is deep and part 2 only released overseas because of poor sales in the West. It never completed itself and it's story took many twists apart from this one. This is a great price for a classic ORIGINAL(because we don't get many of those now)factory sealed game. Pick up a copy and give it a chance,you won't be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Clunky yet sincere- November 25, 2012
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Overblood is a game that is often criticized pretty harshly, and often fairly, for being a clunky, slow-moving mess of a survival horror game. To be sure, it is a B-title. There are some factors in it's favor, but you have to be willing to adjust your expectations to account for the time the game was made. You may not come away with a deep appreciation for it, but you may end up, like it's small cult following, enjoying it despite it's shortcomings.
To be clear, Overblood isn't a survival horror game. It is a sci-fi survival/adventure game. It is most similar to the title 'Disaster Report'. It is not an action title. It is about exploration, puzzle solving, and escape. The protagonist, Raz, wakes with amnesia in a cryogenic vault in an underground research facility where an earthquake has occurred. Like Disaster Report, aftershocks continue as the game progresses, making for some dangerous situations. Movement and character animations are definitely clunky. Collision detection is not very good, and it can be difficult to tell where to activate certain items. Hand to hand combat is laughable. On the other hand, the base is rendered in 3d polygons, not pre-rendered backgrounds, and this was an innovation for it's time. The game has several different cameras you can access, and 2 different playable characters at any given time. It's important to remember that before titles like Tomb Raider and Super Mario 64 hit the market, in-game 3D cameras were notoriously wonky. Years of experimenting had to be done before the subtle movements we take for granted these days were standardized. You have to accept that when you play Overblood. It's an early 3d title, but it does not have grievously unforgivable camera movements like say, Rascal.
