ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
At first, Bad Blood seems limited because of the sameness of the early gameplay, and the simple command system that is used. Given some time, however, things soon hot up and the game provides some solid, long term entertainment.

The Games Machine (UK)
Bad Blood is an enjoyable, simplified, action-oriented RPG. The background tunes (via Roland, Adlib and Game Blaster soundcards) add atmosphere, as do the effective VGA graphics displaying a batch of monsters, mutants, the wreckage of old cities, etc. Definitely one to unwind with after a hard stint playing Ultima VI.

Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
Da Bad Blood von Anfang an für den PC konzipiert war, ist nicht nur die Spielwelt größer und detailreicher als in „Times of Lore“, auch die VGA-Grafik sieht mit ihren 256 Farben wirklich toll aus, zudem werden diverse Soundkarten unterstützt. Aber alles hat seinen Preis, hier sind es mindestens 640K und eine Festplatte.

Für mich, als Liebhaber von Endzeit-Szenarien, ist "Bad Blood" genau das Richtige. Die makabere, düstere Geschichte ist spielerisch stark an "Times of Lore" angelehnt. Wieder heißt es ausgiebig Konversation machen, will man sich in der Spielewelt zurechtfinden. Forschergeist und Entdeckungsfreude tragen entscheidend zum Gelingen dieses Mutanten-Abenteuers bei. Die gefällige Benutzerführung und die besonders mit VGA-Karte farbenprächtige Grafik heben den Spielspaß ganz erheblich. Freunde der gepflegten Grusel-Unterhaltung kommen bei "Bad Blood" auf ihre Kosten.

It's this combat factor that really lowers the game: okay, it's a hostile world, but sometimes it borders on the extreme with creatures coming in from all sides. Surprisingly, Bad Blood is devoid of all the usual 'free gifts' that accompany most RPGs these days, coming with just the instruction booklet and a creature guide (used for copy protection). There are no dishcloth maps or 'gold' coins - it's quite a welcome change for a game to rely solely on itself. But while it doesn't do that bad a job overall, it's really only worth it if you've got the money to spare.
