Blood is an addicting game. When it came out in 1997 we all got hooked on it. The graphics were (at the time) quite good. While the game could not begin to compare with games as Diablo, and Warcraft, it developed a following in its own right, if only on a smaller scale. The game was a different kind of computer game, one that had not been seen. The game offered unequalled blood and gore, with seemingly no real point. A host of various and at times, creative weapons allows the player to slaughter their way through numerous levels.
The game-play isn't the best, but at the time, it was quite good for a shooter. The game also boasts an array of codes and cheats that can make the slaughter all the more bloody.
The good thing about the game is that you don't really kill people so to speak, so it's not all that disturbing; the enemies are instead monsters and creatures that I can't really identify. The levels are fairly interactive, and there's plenty of stuff to blow up and destroy. The addictiveness of the game really kicks in at about 12 at night, when it's pitch black, and the only light is from the computer screen, this is when you can really get into the game,
and truly get the crap scared out of you when "something" flies up out of the shadows at you.
All in all the game is a great shooter, and is highly addictive. There are a few bugs and annoying little glitches that can happen during game-play, I know that the maker has made a bunch of patches and a bunch of little additions to the game. There is one expansion that is very good that I have come across; the main thing is that the pack adds a couple of new levels, the best of which has to be the pirate style ship.
The ship is a very interesting level, never before seen like this. There are also a bunch of new things that make the patches and such interesting, the main one it the ability to destroy more things, everybody likes an interactive environment, and this is one place to get it, as well as a couple of new weapons, because hey let's face it, while it may be fun to run through a carnival with a pitchfork stabbing at zombies, it's much more fun to do it with a pair of huge plasma rifles!
