Blood Bowl

This is a faithful adaptation of Games Workshop’s board game of the same name. Being probably the only turn-based fantasy football game (think D&D meets Monday Night Football), Blood Bowl is unique. The rules of the board game are implemented well; it is a complex turn-based tactical sport simulation with many nuances, and you must plan every move carefully. The game itself is a lot of fun, especially because the players– being fantasy creatures– often have special powers or traits that you can put to good use. Unfortunately, the murky graphics and confusing interface mar the solid game engine. The AI could also use improvements, but overall, it’s still a commendable effort that is great for fans of the board game who cannot find friends to play against.
