Rated 0 out of 10 by misfit119 Great Game... on the PC
Blood Bowl is a fantastic game that mixes the tactical elements of the tabletop game with the action of a sports game. There's even a mode to turn it entirely into a sports game, forgoing any of the tactical aspects in favor of a cruching bash-em-up game of the same ilk as Mutant League Football. Unfortunately many things aren't going to be surviving onto the console port. - No customizing your character models appearance - No customizing your team colors - No ability to create an online league - No ability to gain star player points in online games. Honestly this is more for the single player game only which really kind of kills a game in this day and age of online multiplayer. I don't even really play online and this change bothers me greatly. So if you're into this game then the PC is the place to get it. If not you might as well play ghostbusters.

This game is a good attempt at making the original table top game into a console game. The interface is not bad but pretty much this game is Warhammer meets football. Most Madden fans might not like it since it is turn based football The controls are a little something to get used to and the graphics are not top rate but the are better than expected and it is well worth the buy. Also keep in mind that I usually don't buy sports game because of the simple fact that most of the time it takes no real skill to play sports games and that does not seem like a good thing to waste my time with them. This game actually takes a little skill and is not something that you can just jump into and win right off the bat which is one of the biggest problems with the madden games. So if you want a challenging but fun and great game then buy blood bowl.
Rated 1 out of 10 by deputy28 DONT BUY
This game is the worest game I have ever bought. Do not buy this game you will regret buying this game. I stuck it in my console and boy this game was dreadful. I thought it would be a cool game and it turned out to be a game that should have never been made to play. How can they even say this game was a football game. This game will go down as the worst game of 2010 hands down a 5 year old could have made this game better than what they did on this game. The controls on this game along with the poor excuse of a football game will make any one avoid this game. All Pro football was a way better game than this game was. Its to bad that they didnt make this game like Arena Bowl for the sega gennis. the hockey game and football game on that system was great. To bad they didnt use that on this game.

Well ive watched some online videos about the game and also some gameplay videos and its looking like this should turn out to be a fun and interesting game. Im a big fan of steategy games and this looks like it wont disapoint so im probably going to be picking up this title. The Grapics are extremly nice, I love the slightly cartoonish look to the characters and surroundings. Also The Character/Team customization looks AWESOME! I cant wait to choose my race and begin leveling up and customizing my players! BUT! BE WARNED! If you think this game is going to play like MADDEN football or another football game you are very very wrong. But in the end this looks like my kind of game and the layout and interface look very fine and polished so im definatly getting this game and it looks like it will have TONS of replay value.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Elderstryker Excellent for what it was designed for
Anyone who gave a bad review do not know about Games Workshop or what this game was actually designed as. It is designed after the table top turn based game by games workshop..This is not a typical football game like Madden. It is turn based as opposed to continuous play. This is a great game to play if you are used to the old vibro football games or even if you and your friends have played the table top version before. This game has given me hour of fun for a VERY cheap price. If you had played the classic table top game the rules are exactly the same! This is a great game to play against friends or just do the campaign. There is a live version I have not checked out yet but hope to see it soon. Again fun game if you like turn based games..not fun if you do not understand turn based games lol
Rated 0 out of 10 by A Customer Rip Off? Not Likely.
I've seen several previews panning this as a copy of anything from WoW to Mutant League Football. Blood Bowl is a 22-year-old franchise and originally part of Warhammer lore, and one of the most fun two-player board games out there. Mutant League Football, if anything, was a ripoff of Blood Bowl (kinda like Warcraft and the Warhammer series, right?) Plagiarism is a pretty serious thing to call a studio out on, so please do a little homework before making that accusation.
Rated 0 out of 10 Blood Bowl
This game is fun as I played the digital download now it comes to the states. I'm so going to buy this game for the 360 when it comes out. The funny thing is though when I asked gamestop about it the did not have it in the systems at all,an looked at me like I was crazy. I told them it's on your website dated for 1/26/10 I hope they get it in that day, as I so want this game.
Rated 0 out of 10 More Warhammer!
For those who do not know: Blood Bowl is a side game made by Games-Workshop. It is basically a football oriented version of Warhammer Fantasy. So it is not a copy of mutant football or warcraft sports, it is just a video game version of Blood Bowl. When I saw it I was shocked that they even did Blood Bowl, because I don't know anyone who actually plays the real one!
Rated 0 out of 10 People are wrong.
This game is being made from an OLD OLD Warhammer Fantasy boardgame, it isnt copying anything, and it isnt something that is turning WoW into a sports game, this is a game, that was originally a boardgame made by Games Work Shop. Look these things up before making comments that aren't true.
Rated 0 out of 10 by DrawinFire pc vs 360
from playing the pc game and knowing that xbox players like things fast and flashy im not sure they will like this. I dont know if any of you younger players ever played mutant league football but the premise is the same. If you like fantasy your'll like this. unless the xbox 360 version changes.
