Our videos of Bloodforge

Our videos of Bloodforge

Beat them up fans will get a first taste of Bloodforge tomorrow on Xbox Live Arcade, should they decide to download the game's demo. Because we would not want you to be surprised, we decided to capture a few videos of the game ourselves and here is the very first one introducing the main character and the story. As its title seems to indicate, there is a lot of blood in Climax's game and the violence unleashed here is that of anger and revenge, something Kratos would probably understand very well. Provided you have nothing against the art style and you manage to get past the camera issues, you will probably have fun playing the game. As for us, we can't say we have been particularly seduced by what we've seen, but then again it just might not be our thing.
Update 3 : Fourth part added.

I swear you have at least one negative comment about every game posted. Do you actually play games?

What really jars about the visuals in this, aside from the total lack of AA, is that the ground is completely covered in snow, but the rocks are completely snow free. Just looks wrong, like the rocks don't belong in the same scene.

The devs should have looked at how the snow was done in Skyrim.

it's a Climax title so... jarring animation/performance and visual bugs and blockiness are to be expected.

Yep, just played the trial and the game seems to be so bad. It's like you take control over character made from paper. Combat is button mashy and the camera dance like crazy after every single move you make. Ugh. Safe your points guys and buy something amazing like Trials Evolution (if you haven't done that yet lol:P).

Played it a while ago. Was an earlier build, but it was so rough that I have a hard time thinking they pulled it out of the fire.
