A Pure Masterpiece from From Software
17 September 2018 | by shallowsend-1See all my reviews

I have finally come around to reviewing this game. It's almost difficult to put into words of how phenomenal Bloodborne is. The character creation and customization is amazing with how you can define your hunter. The start of the storyline submerges the player into wonder and curiosity, due to mystery of Yharnam and its inhabitants. However, from the start of the game the hunter is given clues to why the city and lands are filled with miasma and misanthropy. Even the in-game items have descriptions that help to tell the storyline.

When playing my first time through Bloodborne I immediately felt immersed into the story and gameplay. While fighting off blood drunken infected people, otherworldly beasts, and even cosmic creatures; I felt not only the rush of action, but horror as well.

The gameplay and mechanics are incredibly smooth, including the character controls. As far as the story goes, it's up to the hunter to unravel the mystery to why Yharnam is infested with ghastly and grotesque creatures.

It's amazing as well of how they embedded the side quests into the story. One of these "side quests" includes rescuing certain people BEFORE the climax. Doing so requires the hunter to tell these people which safe haven to go to. The catch is, there's only one safe haven (though you have two options of dialogue, one of which tells the person where to go).

For H.P. Lovecraft fans, you will absolutely love the fact that majority of the lore in the storyline is HEAVILY Lovecraftian. Mainly because a lot of descriptions on items read, "The Greater Ones" and one of the last bosses is one of these said creatures.

The only two complaints I have about Bloodborne (which are small) are: The summoning system for cooperative play is odd and sometimes takes a while. The other is, you can't drop or trade items with other players. Nevertheless, it doesn't bother me too much. I highly recommend this game, especially if you're craving for a challenge!
