Manufacturer's Description

Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition is the ultimate edition of the video game adaptation of Games Workshop's famous board game of the same name.

A brutal team sport unfolding in a fantasy world based on Warhammer and American football, Blood Bowl is an incredible, brutal game in which no holds are barred as you lead your team to the Blood Bowl final! Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition is the ultimate Blood Bowl edition! 11 new playable races join the 9 races already available in the 2009 edition: Undead, Amazon, Ogres and 8 other races enter Blood Bowl's tournaments.

A new Story mode is also introduced, in which players will play as a freelance coach. They will have to lead several famous teams and take up many challenges through a story revealing the origins of Blood Bowl, the Old World and its many races that relentlessly compete with each other in merciless games. A newly scripted tutorial will teach all new comers everything they need to know about coaching a Blood Bowl team! In order to stay as close as possible to the official rules, many additions and updates have been made to better match the latest Blood Bowl Rulebook, used in all official board game official tournaments.

The coin is spinning. You are experiencing butterflies in your stomach. The wait is unnerving. You stare at the message on the screen: "Looking for Opponent." Who will it be? More importantly, *what* will they be? How experienced will they be? The server is supposed to match you with an opponent of the same caliber, but if this is not your first game, you know it doesn't always work out that way. Suddenly, the message changes: "Connecting..." Here we go!

Blood Bowl, in this reviewer's opinion, has since its conception in 1987, evolved over five editions to simply the best board game this reviewer has ever played. It is categorically unwise to call it the best boardgame in the world unless one has played all the boardgames in the world, but there is *evidence* to suggest that the statement *might* be true.

All boardgames start from a more or less pre-determined or at least from a limited number of scenarios, right? Not so with Blood Bowl. With twenty different teams to choose from and a practically infinite number of builds for them, two games are unlikely to start the same, whether you're playing against A.I. or another human. And even if the teams in two games are exactly the same, the playing conditions (the weather) and random events that occur even before the first turn are likely to instantly give each game a different starting situation. And that's just with *newly* created teams.

All boardgames end when one player wins, right? Not so with Blood Bowl. The keyword around which the Fifth Edition was developed was "Perpetual", meaning that you could play the game FOREVER. It would just consist of any number of matches. Very RPG. You start a team. You hire your starting players.

This game finally has all the things we wanted as a fan of the board game, namely all the teams, all the rules, extras, and skills. Commentary has been improved somewhat with extra lines of dialogue, and stadiums no longer have an empty feel to them with fans being visible.

As a traditional player, I have only touched the blitz mode a little bit, favouring the original games rules, which can get very one-sided against the AI either for or against you, which has a pretty unbalanced and unpolished feel to it, but the real fun of this game is with playing against other players. Bring your own teams, host your own competitions, and play with your friends. Your development of your teams and nurturing your players growth is where this game shines.

If you are a fan of the game, you will love this as a way of bringing your characters to life, and if you are new, this is a nice way of being introduced to the board game.

I played BB as an adolescent some 30 odd years ago and was pleased to see a computer version of it. I won't go into details, but will list the pluses and minuses.

Pluses : The rules of the original are followed to a tee.
The variety of teams is excellent, even including the drow, ok ok THR DARK ELVES.
A good tutorial, if a little basic.
Good campaign mode, but may get repetitive.
Good team advancement.
Mercenaries and Star Players

Minuses :
The biggie is the AI in single player mode. Despite what you hear on some forums the dice are weighted against you and unless you grind away for hours on end and become an excellent tactician, you will not win games. However if you go To the Blood Bowl website and click on Forums > You vs AI > Are the dice supposed to be that weighted for the AI?,read down a bit to the post by Spectre this will tell you how to make the dice rolls truely random as in the real game

[...]

Again, even with this the AI is fairly insipid, which is probably why they weighted the dice in the first place.

The UI is terrible and confusing, once you finish a tournement you can't go back and review the standings etc etc. It's basically backwards or forwards arrows. For instance you get the Buy Players button even if you can't afford them, click it and you get the, you don't have enough money notification (obviously).
Customising is average, you can only change the armour, there are a few skins for players, but nothing exceptional, btw, the dark elves are pink skinned/white.

This is an enjoyable game the chaos version is only available on steam as far as I know I bought it as well its hardly better it only has chaos dwarfs and underworld a mix of goblin and skaven extra. I prefer the hard cd copy of this game
as you don't need to be online to play it.

its worth buying

BB:LE is the videogame version of the boardgame from Games Workshop- Bloodbowl. It's American Football crossed with Warhammer Fantasy Battle, and fatalities and freakish mutations are just as important as the numbers on the scoreboard! Choose from a wide variety of fantasy themed teams, from Wood Elves to Skaven and from Dwarfs to Chaos, each with their own special rules and unique characters.

The Good: Faithful recreation of the game from Games Workshop, with most of the teams and rules lifted straight from the Living Rulebook. The graphics and animations are characterful, humorous, and again, very Games Workshop. Campaign and Story mode offer plenty of amusement for those who prefer to play alone.

The Bad (or at least not so good): The AI isn't too tough to beat, so whilst campaign and story mode offer a good opportunity to train up your skillz for the online leagues, you'll get bored pretty quickly if you're any good. Although there are a wide variety of teams to choose from, the customization options within the teams are fairly limited with only a few different types of armour available per race. The UI isn't very user friendly, tooltips are a rare breed indeed.

The Bloomin' Ugly: I can see that many people are enjoying playing in online leagues, so I appreciate that this isn't a problem for everyone. However, I have had major problems connecting to online games. I have spent literally hours following forum advice (I am not the only one affected), aswell as instructions from the Cyanide Customer Support Team, who to be frank weren't very supportive. What can I say- it works sometimes, other times it doesn't.
