You would never think a game like this can make you so emotional. The joy of the double Go-For-It! touchdown without a re-roll. The Fury of rolling four attacker downs at the begining of your turn. The fear of losing you star player to a pitch invasion. The unrelenting sadness of said star player getting killed by a blitzing Orge...
Sorry, got off topic. This is literal fantasy football, with everything that entails. Teams consist of Elves, Dwarves, and other fantasy staples. Wizards are hurling spells onto the field. Blood and limbs flying as teams of heavily armed and armored individuals try to move the ball down the field.
The game has a handful of different modes where you can make a team take them through competitions. It also supports exporting the team you create to use in exhibition matches. Where this game shines, however, is online play. Get a group of friends together and start a league. Revel as your chainsaw wielding goblin takes out that annoying guy from chemistry's reciever. Laughs will be had, tears will be shed, and there is a good chance someone will die on the field.
That's Blood Bowl.
