Blood Bowl: Chaos Edition is a fantasy football video game with the option for turn based or real time game play. This game is an expansion to Blood Bowl that was developed in 2009 by Cyanide and published Focus Home Interactive and is based on the board game "Blood Bowl" that is produced by Games Workshop.
Blood Bowl: Chaos Edition has a great variety of game modes available for both single player and multiplayer that will keep you entertained for days providing the dice gods don't come down on you too harshly.
It is however recommended that you play using Classic mode and playing using turn based due to the fact that blitz mode is an awful edition to the game since it does not fit in well and functions clumsily.
There are a 23 races to choose from in Blood Bowl chaos edition and helps to add a nice variety to the teams you come up against, some races share similar players but overall there is a lot to choose from and picking what team you want to play as can take quite some time.
Blood Bowl: Chaos Editions graphics are perfectly suitable for what it is trying to achieve and generally looks visually pleasing and adds a fair amount of detail into the surroundings and units, for a game made in 2009 you defiantly can't complain.
On lower difficulty settings the AI make irrational moves that tend to lead to costly mistakes, while the higher levels of AI provide some challenge but you most likely will want to look for opposition using multiplayer.
If you want a faithful recreation of the board game Blood Bowl this is the only video game you should currently choose to try out due to the fact that it is quite high quality and is a quite compelling experience overall.
I highly recommend that you give this game a try if you like a challenging board game-esque strategy game.
