Images of Blood Bowl

Images of Blood Bowl

We covered this baby back in E3 2004, where it was announced. The game was cancelled, but Blood Bowl was recently taken alive again by French studio Cyanide. Focus Home Interactive is publishing it on Xbox 360, PC, PSP and the DS, and some images and information can be found inside.

I like it, finally something that's not a shooter/ea regurgitation.

I was thinking the same. Talk about good ole memories. I really, really, really missed the good old days of fantasy sports games. Always thought that finally getting official licenses from the various pro sports organizations took away from videogaming football and really did not add enough back to make up for the loss. Now that EA has the NFL license locked up until 2012, I hope to see more football games like this one pop up. It would really be nice to see videogaming football get back to it's arcadey roots. Remember the blessedness that was Tecmobowl or the NBA Jams series? Classic gameplay that sometimes seems like it's gone forever. With luck, Blood Bowl will be a AAA class act all the way, and a return to form for the industry that will really spark a lot of other sports developers out there, to follow in their footsteps.

The grass? It looks like one patch of grass repeated a thousand times
A clone stamp went rampant on the field and didn't take the time to hide the fact

I didnt know anything about american football when I started playing Blood Bowl and that fact didnt hurt a bit! It's about stompin' and bashin'! ...and getting the ball and scoring a touchdown I suppose!

    KORNdog sometimes i like to know how long a game is too to gauge the value proposition, but that's easily obtainable information that does not require a review. (17 Hours ago)
