Blood Bowl is the videogame adaptation of Games Workshop's famous board game of the same name.

A brutal team sport unfolding in a parallel fantasy world based on Warhammer and American football, Blood Bowl invites gamers to form a team of players from such races as Orcs, Wood Elves, Humans, Dwarfs and many other fantasy creatures, and launch themselves into battle in the bloodiest of arenas. This strategy sports game combines a fine balance of tactics and bonecrunching action! The game offers two game modes.

The first, which is fully real-time, offers a spectacular gameplay. Intense battles between blocking linemen and daring displays of agility of players leaping and dodging through opponents tackle zones, while powerful spells and dirty trick special plays are unleashed across the pitch; all this creates a highly charged atmosphere.

The second game mode, an actual turn-based game, is a treat for players of the original board game because it is an exact replica of Games Workshop's tabletop masterpiece. The original rules have been faithfully reproduced, and it contains all of the devices, strategies, play and rhythm of the original game.

The single-player experience allows the player to manage a team throughout an entire season of Blood Bowl, through the Old World of Warhammer. The team will evolve over the course of victories, experience gained and awards won. With its immense depth, the game can almost be considered as a management game, from managing the popularity and sponsorship of players to the purchase and sale of players, as well as their aging, retirement and even death.

In multiplayer, the player will be able to throw down a challenge to other Blood Bowl players and participate in large tournaments on the Internet in order to climb the official ranks.

# Two radically different game modes: turn-based for a faithful adaptation of the board game, or real-time for intense and spectacular matches.
# 8 different races, each offering its own style of play: Humans, Orcs, Skaven, Dwarfs, Wood Elves, Goblins, Lizardmen and Chaos.
# Magnificent graphical rendering, literally giving life to the Blood Bowl miniatures!
# Take part in a full Blood Bowl campaign to win the 15 championship trophies and cups while developing your own team.
# Export your own team from a championship and play it in a One-Off Match or in multiplayer.
# Create your own online league and challenge other player and participate to online tournaments on the Internet to rise your team on the top of the official online rankings!
# Get started easily and progressively using the in-game tutorial and 3 levels of difficulty.

I would love to say this was a good game as i played the board game many many years ago but have a look at the customer reviews on amazon and thats why its this price http://www.amazon.co.uk/THQ-Blood-Bowl-Xbox-360/dp/B002TLSQQ8/ref=sr_1_2?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1289492197&sr=1-2

Then again:-
Well..there are two schools of thought on this. The first is if you have ever played the Blood Bowl board game, in which case you will more than likely love this game (bar some flaws). The second is if you haven't played the board game, which means you will probably hate it. I am of the former and love the game. It has some flaws, such as the lack of an online league, and the inability to 'paint' your team to the colours you might like. On the whole I love playing it and it has introduced my son to the delights of Warhammer games.

Reminds me of Mutant League Football on the Mega Drive.

I would have been all over this if I hadn't caved a while back and got the DE edition on Steam in a sale.

AWESOME price - not even seen it for sub £10 preowned in any Game store I frequent.

How far off am I when I think this is NFL with monsters? Like an arcade sports game like Sega Soccer Slam?

Decent if you enjoyed the board game which I did. Don't go thinking this is going to be like brutal sports football though, its a literal translation of the board game.
I wish it was real time blood bowl is crying out for the Ea games treatment, would be an awesome game
#11
it says that it has a real time mode on the game, is this not true then?
#12
i have the PC version and from what ive read, the PC version is the one to go for.
never played the board game but really enjoyed this.

think of it as a mix of chess, american football and warhammer.

yes there is a real time mode, but its not great. the turn based mode is much better.

when you get into it and understand each races tactics its really good. hot :)
