Trots den mycket enkla grafiken och gammalmodiga framtoningen är det ett mycket kul spel.

Blood Bowl finally made its way to the PC - although it probably won't make fans of the miniatures game stop painting those trolls.

Ich wager aber zu bezweifeln, daß Blood Bowl größere Käuferschichten ansprechen wird - den Sportspiel-Enthusiasten dürfte es zu taktiklastig sein, verwöhnte Strategen rennen vor der miesen Grafik davon.

In the end, what it comes down to history. Those of us who have been Blood Bowl fans through the years will find ourselves enjoying the computerized version, with its clever morsels of eye-candy and dedication to the boardgame. Of course we'll be griping all the way. Newcomers, especially sport sims fans looking for a little diversion from their usual fare, will probably get a big kick out of their first few games, but ultimately they'll become frustrated with BLOOD BOWL's clumsy mechanics and gameplay.
Power Play
So gut sich das alles anhört, so schlecht wurde das ansich gute Strategiespiel konvertiert. Die Grafik ist bis auf einige Portraits ein Witz, der Sound lächerlich, der Spielfluß stockt von einem Zug zum anderen und auch die Zweispieler-Option entbehrt jeglicher Spannung. Games-Workshop-Fans und Footballfreunde könnten sich warmspielen, alle anderen nehmen Abstand.
