You will have to love this game. It is a sequel to the Dark Souls 2, so it already has a lot of gamers who adore it. You will probably be one of them, simply because this is an amazing game, scary, but amazing. Most gamers said that they needed a few hours to get used to the gameplay and the style of Bloodborne. Some even say that this game represents hell, so it will remind you of your painful moments and on things you wish you have forgotten. In any case, we believe that this is one of extremely popular and probably one of the best PS4 games out there. If you haven’t tried it, please do, as soon as possible. Just in case, be free to check the official game trailer.
At the beginning, you will probably be frightened. The main character is all alone and he is in a city where only living creatures are the werewolves (your enemy) and a small number of people. However, don’t expect that they will be your friends. All people who are present on the gameplay will speak to you but barely and they will try to avoid that! The scenery is like after Armageddon, and there are no many things worth of seeing. In addition, the game is set in Yharnam, an ancient city.
The number of enemies who will attack you is immense, and the only thing that can help you are the weapons. Luckily, you will have plenty of them. You will be able to switch between different weapons and to switch light or heavy modes. Even better, the main character has a possibility to transform weapons from melees into side arms. They definitely make a difference and they will help you kill your enemies sooner, which is desirable.
Losing health is a common thing as well. After all, it isn’t possible to stay unharmed after so many enemies. On the other side, you will be able to withdraw or stun your opponents in order to re-gain your health. Yes, you have secondary weapons at your disposal that allow you to stun your enemies, which is more than just useful.
Keep in mind that you won’t have any particular mission to complete. The main goal of the game is to explore the world and kill as many enemies as you can. During the game, you will encounter huge bosses that are difficult to beat. If you remember, we mentioned that werewolves are your first enemies, but later, you will encounter ‘’cosmic’’ creatures that are far more dangerous.
Graphics of the Bloodborne is controversial. In essence, it is fine, but we expected more. Yes, the world looks impressive, so as the main character, but most of the enemies are not as you would expect. The graphics of them is poor and even with the best graphic settings, they look at least one generation older.
While the aforementioned fact may be treated as a drawback of the game, fighting is definitely a plus side. Fighting enemies is done in the best manner you can possibly imagine and everything is completed quickly, followed by blood and fast disappearing, of the killed enemies. A special attention has been invested in the primary and secondary weapons. They look amazing as well and switching them won’t affect on the graphics. In general, all of this make gaming more interesting and better in any way you can imagine.
If you have played Dark Souls, you should know that the graphics in the Bloodborne isn’t as good as in the first game. However, it will be sufficient for most gamers and if you pay attention only to the gameplay and the bosses, you won’t notice any drawbacks of the graphics.
So, what Bloodborne has to offer? Probably the best and the most important feature is an extremely fast gameplay. All is happening too fast and if you are not focused, you will end up dead. This is perfect for gamers who like getting the results of combats as soon as possible and like to move on.
The re-gain feature is another addition that makes this game an even better. In essence, you will get some of your health back, when you block an attack of your enemy or perform a counterattack. Of course, it isn’t to get this feature as it sounds, but it is more than just needed.
Visual effects are the next best thing. You will get plenty of them and all of them will look amazing. Glowing effects and the waves on the water deserve a special attention, but if you want more you will get. In addition combat, visuals must be mentioned and they are also something that can make a difference in making this game better.
Although weapons have been mentioned, we must say that they are also a great feature if the Bloodborne and they are definitely more than just original. Add an impressive graphic they feature and you can understand how impressive these weapons will look.
