Playing as Shao Kai, you are betrayed by your brother and left for dead. After being rescued by a rival warlord, you swear allegiance to that warlord and join forces with him. The story and setting are pretty original for an action game, but the animated cutscenes aren't as engaging as they should have been; after watching the first few, you'll find yourself skipping them and jumping straight to the missions.
Thankfully, Blood Wake scores big in this area. The missions run a wide gamut and will have you defending convoys, attacking enemy cargo ships, and collecting "payments." And though the missions are well designed, occasionally combat can degenerate into you and the enemy turning in circles in an effort to gain the best firing angle.
Over the course of the game you'll have access to over 10 gunboat variations, each armed to the gills with a wide variety of weapons. Though you can't choose which gunboat you'll use before a mission, the game does a nice job of giving you the boat that will best serve your purposes. Controlling the gunboats is fairly straightforward; but, since you need to contend with the physics of the water, some gamers may find the controls a little frustrating at first, especially when turning and moving forward after being stopped. Fortunately, after a few missions gamers will get their sea hands and the controls will become second nature.
Graphically, Blood Wake is extremely impressive. The gunboats feature lots of little details like cannons ejecting shells, the pilot moving in his seat, and the wood of the gunboat splintering damage as you take hits. The most impressive thing about Blood Wake, however, is its depiction of water. Waves crash over your gunboat, wakes impact how you steer, and torpedoes will send up a massive wave that will toss you into the air. It's not just fancy special effects; the water actually dictates how combat unfolds. When fighting in choppy seas you need to make sure you fire when you're at the top of a wave, otherwise your bullets will simply hit a wave in front of you. This is a nice touch and really show the amount of thought that went into Blood Wake's development.
Because of its fun gameplay and solid multiplayer component (four multiplayer games are included), fans of vehicle combat games owe it to themselves to try out Blood Wake. --William Harms

I don't find this game at all monotonous like a few claim. It's a mission based combat game. It's a dog fighting game in water. If you like Star Wars Starfighter or Star Wars: Rogue Leader you will love this game. Plus, It has advantages over those game due to it's great multiplayer and battle mode features. Tons of stuff to do in this game!
I find it disappointing that people who haven't even touched this game come up with clearly false reviews. This game is not Twisted Metal or a Boat Racing game. This game is a mission based combat/ dog fighting game in water.
-challenging and interesting missions
-pretty good AI
-nice variety of weapons
-fun and competitive
-really funky controls
-takes to many shots to blow up a boat
-sudden change of difficulty
On this occasion I feel an injustice has been done by some to this game, giving less than avaerage marks in some areas.
What you see is what you get on the box, the water effects, which set this game apart in the graphical sense, are spectacular. It is worth getting a copy of this game to see what an X-box is capable of doing. The game plays like a dream, the water dynamics rock! See your boat pile up on rocks and two others pile onto your craft, has to be seen! The sound effects are a little weak, but the music a great soother with 'choons' from China!
Order sea sickness pills when playing as you will need them!
Track down a used copy and relish the bargain you have acquired. Could last a lifetime this game! Very, very underated, could have great potential as an xbox live game!!!
Gameplay takes a bit of getting used to; your boat rocks and rolls with the waves, reactes somewhat sluggishly, and is difficult to control in reverse. But after you get used to it all, it's fairly entertaining. The player unlocks an array of different boats as they proceed through the game, with an arsenal comprising torpedoes, chain guns, autocannons, cannons, rockets and mines. Unfortunately though, you can't choose which boat you'll use in a mission, it's always an assigned boat. Most missions are fairly straightforward: sink enemy. -But there are a few nice changes of pace along the way. That being said, some of the missions are extremely difficult on any difficulty level above beginner, and cheat codes are a must have for the last three. -Hats off to anyone who has beaten them without a cheat.
All in all it's a good game, but not great. A fun 'once in awhile' game. And it's a good choice for it's current price of [money].
