About This Game

TOUCHDOWN!
Blood Bowl 2 smashes Warhammer and American football together, in an explosive cocktail of turn-based strategy, humour and brutality, adapted from Games Workshop’s famous boardgame.

Blood Bowl 2’s new graphics engine and high-flying realization makes for a faithful portrayal of the fury and intensity of classic Blood Bowl matches. The solo game mode will have you lead the famous Reikland Reavers. Former star team of Blood Bowl you are tasked with bringing them back to glory, following a full story campaign supported by the hilarious commentators Jim & Bob from Cabalvision. Each match of the campaign is unique, with unexpected and surprising events constantly renewing the experience!

The multiplayer modes are bigger and richer than ever. In the persistent online mode, create and manage your own team comprised of one of eight races from the Warhammer world – Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, High Elves, Dark Elves, Chaos, and the Bretonnia newcomers. You will develop your team, gaining XP and unlocking new skills. But beware! On the pitch, all losses are permanent... Organize entirely customisable championships, from qualifications to finale, and use the new Transfer Market to buy and sell your players, and build your Blood Bowl dream-team!

The next generation of Blood Bowl touches down today, will YOU be the champion?

Although as a game it may be a downgraded version of the older version, it's pretty enough to forgive that.

Awesome turn-based sports+strategy warhammer-based game.
If it's not enough - I don't know what to say more.
In second edition graphics are improved - players look awesome, effects look cool/
UI is more novice-friendly - it explains the possiblity of success or fail of your actions
There is also very particular study mode that explains almost everything that you should know to start (the reason I can't play BB1 because wtf is happening).
If you like TBS - strongly recommend to own!

Football but without rules. Straight up killing the other team is a perfectly viable and hilarious strategy.

So the vector between football fans and fans of fantasy RPG is not very big. If you like sports and D&D both, this is probably for you. If you hate either of those things then you'll probably want to pass. It is difficult, it is a lil repetative (like every sports game am I right). It is also hilarious and addictive! Sersiously, the announcers during the campaign are great. Would I pay full price? I don't know, probably. If you see this on sale during summer sale or whatever, it's worth it.

CAREFUL : This is not a Sport or an Action Game, This is a pure Turn-based Strategy Game. It needs a lot of planning and thinking at every minute. And the RNG must be part of the strategy, which means you must try to throw the dice as little and as late as possible each turn.
You can expect long and slow matches, but they are GREAT if you like this type of game and the Blood Bowl Universe.

There's nothing better than a game that gives you RNG that really slaps you in the face. When it's choosing which crappy die result after attempting a tackle, or screaming at your dumbass Troll who refuses to move a single space (or ate your Goblin for that matter). After every failed roll, loss, injured player, or failure to pick up a ball that is right in front of them; my verdict on this game still remains positive and I will break it down why.

Gameplay: Blood Bowl is a turn based dice rolling game of football where every player on your team makes a difference in terms of positioning and stats. My favorite part about this is that you can create your own team and have them compete in tournaments and leagues. Death is permanent for your players however so be prepared for when high level Mr. Badass gets murdered by a little innocent Skink. As you progress, you can upgrade your stadium and team staff with more cheerleaders and coach assistants so you can make the best team of all the Elves, Orcs, Rats, or Humies.

Atmosphere: given that this is a Warhammer fantasy game, you see a lot of familiar races such as the Skaven, Black Orcs and Chaos but set in a stadium for some good wholesome sport where anything goes to achieve victory. The two announcers are quite the treat themselves with their commentary on about anything that goes on in the game.

Graphics: very well designed and detailed with every separate character in the game. not much to say but nothing to really complain about.

Overall, Blood Bowl 2 makes for a great game for you to get angry at because RNG dictates that you cannot make the perfect play. So get your team together, warm up those blocking dice and pray to Nuffle that you will succeed.

Another attempt. I'm not sure why those involved in converting GW titles believe they need to recreate a new experience, when folks already enjoy an existing one. Unless you believe digital gamers today are that different from their traditional gamer counterparts? No.

Guy and gals - the game's been designed and tested. All we want from you is some lovely visualisation (which this title does give) and for you to use our computers to aid our play. Team managment. Customizing models/painting. Organise leagues. Customise leagues. Learn to make the computer support and expand on the existing play experience. Make it work for us.

A virtual table-top for GW fun.

Instead we get poorly implemented league management tool. Feeble customisation options. No tools to aid play, such as a grid. And a terrible camera.

Oh and some rule/skill changes. Because the years of itterative testing and feeback are obviously not as valued as the opinions of Cyanide's so-called game designers. Good call guys/gals.

I swear to the RNGods - whenever/whoever makes a Necromunda game, if they follow the logic of Cyanide and those chumps that did Mordheim, we'll have a narrative-driven multiplayer FPS shooter....

If you like turn based games, gridiron, violence and team management, get this game you will more then likely enjoy it.
I give this game a thumbs, up its a good solid game and it provides hours of fun.
May only have around 20 hours clocked up but ive only had it 3 days at the time of writing.

Is it worth full price ?

That is entirly up to the individual, there are a lot of people who feel this game is a cash grab. I personaly feel that on its release the price was a bit high but where the price settled is a good price.

Reason for purchasing the game.

I\'m new to bloodbowl and I found playing the first game not easy to learn and the graphics were pretty poor, blood bowl 2\'s UI is easy to understand, and the models and characters are better then anything id be able to paint myself and look awesome.

I\'d like to remark on some of the more negative posts.

Campaign just a tutorial:
This is true, but if any of the people complaining about this had played for more then 40 mins they would have found at match 9 thats %48 campaign completion its pretty much a normal solo league, with a story and the training wheels are fully off.

Campaign only for one race:
From memory campaign in blood bowl 1 was effectivly this games solo league so I dont see where the probem is.

DLC is a cash grab:
I don\'t see it this way, we get 8 races that are well fleshed out for a good price. $4 - $10 for a DLC team depending on what part of the world you live in, is a good price. Look at it this way you would never be able to buy and paint a blood bowl tabletop team for $10, just saying.

Graphics arent any better then the original:
The people who say this must be running the game on toasters, the game has been made on a brand new engine and is immensly better, easiest way to see this is pretty much looking at the steam pages for both.

Lesser issue, responding to artificial coach leveling:
This is why there will never be a local hotseat league mode with experiance for your coach, too many people would just cheat to level up their coach. a.k.a Artificial leveling making teams that only one person plays to just roll over and lose to your main team thus getting better exp for your coach.
