I just ordered my copy! I have been looking to get it forever and at a steal like this, I couldn't resist. As a player and fan of versions such as Tamriel and Morrowind, I can't wait to start playing this.

Personally a great addition to my collection ?

It's kinda hard to offer a neat review of this game without mentioning its "insane" difficulty and that is what people generally think about - a crap hard experience - when they see a FromSoftware title, but there is so much to it. I hope that my two cents will give anyone reading this a good idea of what this game is and what is just widespread nonsense (nonsense to some degree).

Story:

Okay so the first question you'd ask is what is it about and if you read the story description on the cover you'd still be quite lost and that's good for you should get used to that when playing SoulsBorne games. The game does indeed leave a lot to the players own imagination, but the designers have left enough clues to allow one to get a good idea of what is going on. The story is hard to explain for it is only really fleshed out when you interact with NPCs by doing their questlines or by looking at item descriptions which contain a buckets of lore and information about the world. Even obscure environmental details can give you some insight into what is going on. In short the game is very cryptic in its storytelling in that one must seek out item descriptions and NPCs to understand the main plot, but it is all worth it for you'll see a very complex and interesting story if you dig deep enough. So if you like linear in-your-face THIS IS THE PLOT, NOW GO AND DO X, Y..., then this game would disappoint you in that regard.

Gameplay:

Well Bloodborne is an action RPG. It borrows heavily from the Dark Souls series but it has its own little tricks and mechanics which actually work very well together. The game starts off with a brief cut scene followed by a character creation menu. This first step is very important. You are provided with several archetypes to choose from with varying starting stats and it is here where you are required to make an important choice. For example, do I choose this type and start out with more stamina (Endurance) or do I start with more magic (Arcane). All of these stats can be upgraded using the in-game currency called blood echoes and in this sense you have some RPG elements. The upgrade system is quite simple on the surface but upgrading certain attributes has certain effects and boosts for different weapons; one weapon may have increased damage the more arcane you have for example (scaling). Now for combat, well combat in bloodborne is a lot more visceral and fast. This is evident by the lack of shields and the abundance of cloth based armour in the game. To encourage players to be more offensive they have made this "regain" system which allows you to gain lost health by hitting enemies for a short period of time. Couple this regain system with the dark souls-esque combat and you get a fluid and brilliant game in terms of combat; every fight is like a dance of rolls and backsteps. Simply brilliant. It must be said that these games have many hidden mechanics that will be overlooked by most new SoulsBorne players, so taking a look at some video guides or game guides is completely okay.

Difficulty:

"OMFG Dark Souls is so hard blah blah One shot...". These common things you might hear about these types of games is over exaggerated. Now having played DS1, DS2, DS3, Bloodborne and Demons Souls, I have gained quite a lot of experience playing these games and the mechanics settle well with me, so I may not be able to judge the difficulty of this game from a beginner perspective, but nonetheless here's what I think. The game does not have multiple difficultly levels, yes. The game can be punishing, yes. The game does not hold your hand in that it does not explain the mechanics and tricks of the systems, yes. But is it overly hard? NO! When I first went into these games I had my ass kicked so many times for hours and I even raged quit and left these games alone for months. One day I just went online found an awesome SoulsBorne youtube and watched a video guide of them playing the game where they explained so many of the mechanics. I then went back and kicked the games ass (after it kicked mine a few times... hundreds of times). Anyway I got through it. There is a big learning curve, but there are so many resources and the community is so damn awesome. You can find help so easily which means it just left to you and your grit. There is also a huge sense of accomplishment when you beat a boss which was kicking your butt for the past week, so don't let the difficulty drive you away but also don't underestimate the difficulty.

DLC:

I'll be short. Large amount of content. Awesome new weapons. Amazing new levels and bosses. A must buy

The base game is amazing with an excellent story and narrative, beautiful visuals, immersive world and world-building, and great fun gameplay.

Meticulously detailed but requires extra $$$ to unleash full potential

Reviewed by on

Driveclub was the first game I bought for my PS4.

I've thoroughly enjoyed the game although it can become monotonous if it is played too often. The in-game details are simply marvellous - the cars, the surroundings, even the game menus are superb. One stand-out detail is each car's instrument cluster: it actually works! The clock, the tachometer, the speedometer and even the odometer!

Driveclub was never made to compete with Gran Turismo or Forza so the driving realism is not on par with either of the latter but every car is still driveable with an ordinary Dual Shock 4 controller - a wheel would be far better, though.

However, to get the full experience of the game, you'll need to buy the season pass which gets you access to all the expansion packs, car packs and liveries. The expansion packs add more competition events and widen the game drastically, I'd say the game is almost two-thirds bigger than the original without the expansion packs.

The online and multiplayer functionality is also noteworthy. Competing against other drivers in the time stakes makes the game very entertaining and challenging.

It's a pity that Evolution Studios has closed down but the developers have moved to other game studios. They'll surely release more stunning racers in future.

All in all, an addictive title but you'll need to put some effort - and cash - into unlocking all it has to offer.

The 5 people who have already rated this game 1 star are not Star Wars fanatics. Played the offline campaign and some of the offline arcade battles, and I am not entirely satisfied and feel there is much to be desired, HOWEVER, there is definitely some fun to be had. It's worth trying if you are Star Wars mental and have the cash to waste. If you are not Star Wars mental, stay far away and if you're poor (terrible choice of words), wait until this game is on special as it does not have enough to offer at this early stage for your R900.

After seeing many silly gifs and videos from this game I decided it would be a fun, relaxing time-sink; what I didn't expect was a deeply immersive and tear-jerking story based in a rarely-touched setting of 1980's Japan.
