About

Bloodborne is an action-RPG and another member of souls-like title series. The game has no predecessors or successors, making it the only entry with one add-on: “The Old Hunters.” The Bloodborne universe, however, also includes a comics and a board game.

Generally resembling the Dark Souls series, Bloodborne, however, has some different mechanics and the pace of combat is increased thanks to the risk-rewarding battle system. Another difference is multiplayer, which comes in two kinds: you can summon other players into your game and fight bosses side by side or you can fight impostors, who are other players invading your playthrough.

Throughout the game, you are forced to explore an enormous open world of Yharnam, which looks like alternate universe Lovecraft-inspired Victorian-era England, as The Hunter. You meet horrific bosses, explore vast areas, houses and open spaces while continually dodging, attacking and trying not to get killed by a massive number of hostile NPCs.

Bloodborne reviews and comments

this game is so easy and i dont like it because is an insult to my inteligence, i want games more dificults than this boring shit. pd: is so dark i dont see anything
"There’ll be times when you feel genuinely lost, frustrated and unsure of your next step. But you will carry on, you will beat it, and when you do, there’s no other game that can make you feel more elated about doing so." - VideoGamer

Completed on May 09, 2021. Bloodborne is as glorious as it is grotesque, a harsh and unyielding exercise in getting battered mercilessly while feeling encouraged the whole painful way. While very much a Souls game through and through, the switch from methodical and slow progression to a faster, more savage environment provides just enough of a twist to give it a unique feel, a more empowering journey, for both the player and the opposition. Bloodborne is something truly special – a barbaric horror RPG that will giveth and taketh away in perfect measure, wrapped up in a perverse world that will refuse to let you go!

The best of FromSoftware
«Blew my mind»

This is FromSoftware's masterpiece and while they came somewhat close with Sekiro, I doubt it'll ever truly be topped. Fluid and satisfying combat style, badass trick weapons with extreme variety in playstyle, grotesque enemy and boss designs, a deliciously dark atmosphere with one of the biggest tonal shifts and craziest twists, incredible OST, punishing but fair difficulty, and one of the greatest DLC expansions in any game. The only flaw is that this is locked at 30 FPS which should be criminal; locking one of the greatest gaming experiences of all time to a choppy framerate is a shame and I truly hope the rumors of a PC port or the PS5 Remaster are true, because this game deserves to be played at 60 FPS, more than any other game.

Except for the occasional game-design flaws, this is an uncompromising masterpiece. And, paradoxically, all the conventions that accompany the souls-like genre in one way or another, play here into the hands.

Peak vibes. Gothic horror huge ass castles mixed with lovecraftian madness. Only able to play this game at all bc I was watching my man Marcus's playthrough (EpicNameBro/ENB) and bc i was using the rifle spear (ridiculously OP). Highly recommend his comprehensive playthrough if you're interested in/playing through the game. He's as OG of a Souls guy as it gets, literally cowrote the official player's guide for Bloodborne, super cool dude. He covers all the lore and shows all the game has to offer.

FromSoft has some of the best settings and map design in the biz. The tone of this game is so eery and has such a unique vibe to it. 

This game is brutal, but if a player can get past a certain point then the hooks are in. While you can grind for experience, the game trains you to be a great player, so that by the end you are a high-skilled hunter looking to end the nightmare.

Trumps Dark Souls in every way. Doesn't frontload itself with confusing RPG mechanics and remains a more accessible slimmer experience because of it. Contains a magical sense of adventure that few games can capture and has a haunting tone that isn't suffocating but looms over the player akin to Resident Evil 4. It has fantastic boss battles and an incredible combat system that draws the player in with seemingly easy mechanics that infact require careful footwork and a trained eye to master. It is one of the most satisfying games for improvement. As the player slowly becomes more confident and becomes more aggressive and eventually by the finale you are a stoic hunter that parries and dodges effortlessly and capitalises on every miss of an enemy with devestating combos learned over the course of the game. Finally the lore constantly ambushes the player with deep story threads that are rabbit holes of character biographies and make for satisfying post game content as you understand each character before chaining it all together with a 30 minute complete lore video on Youtube.

No it's not perfect, yes it has its flaws just like any other game. It's still in my opinion the game of the generation and the only game this gen which I've bothered to beat twice, nuff said really.

10/10
