Out Today: Blood Bowl 2 (Xbox One)

Posted by Anthony Bacchus

Who needs Madden?

Need a little fantasy in your sports games this year? Then look no further than Blood Bowl 2 which releases today in retail and digital stores. It's football mixed with Warhammer characters. Oh, it's also really funny and really violent. Great!

In Their Words

TOUCHDOWN!
Blood Bowl 2 smashes Warhammer and American football together, in an explosive cocktail of turn-based strategy, humour and brutality, adapted from Games Workshop's famous boardgame.

Blood Bowl 2's new graphics engine and high-flying realization faithfully portray the fury and intensity of classic Blood Bowl matches. Lead the famous star team Reikland Reavers back to glory, in a new solo story campaign supported by the hilarious commentators Jim & Bob. Each match is unique, with unexpected events constantly renewing the experience!

The single and multiplayer modes are richer than ever. In the online persistent mode against players (or offline against the AI), create and manage your own teams comprised of eight races from the Warhammer world – Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, High Elves, Dark Elves, Chaos, and the Bretonnian newcomers – gaining XP and unlocking new skills. Online, organize entirely customizable championships and trade your players to build your dream-team!

@SuperKMx Aw, I was hoping to see a review of this game from this site.

Oh well, I haven't seen many reviews of this game pop up, but from the look of it and knowing how much my oldest brother likes Warhammer, I think it'll safely do as a Christmas present. I was originally going with Halo 5, but I could always get that for him at a later date or suggest someone else buy if for him.

I do wish that the pre-order they had available for the Xbox One version of this game was for the Lizardmen though. Now it doesn't effect my oldest brother, his orcs and goblins are well accounted for, but my favourite race happens to be the Lizardmen. Well, it's not like I'm getting this game for myself anyway, but it would have been nice.
