The structure underlying Bloodborne is not just original but coherent, and because of this the impact of everything it does is commensurately greater. This is total design. It feels wonderful to have a world like this and, over a week of solid play later, feel that there’s so much more to discover. And it’s awful to know that, in all likelihood, it will be a painfully long time until I play anything else that matches up to Bloodborne’s breadth of vision, generosity of content, and – yes – genius.

One of the best action games of the generation and a stunning achievement in terms of gameplay, art design, and encouraging players to push themselves beyond their limits.

An invigorated spirit occupying a reassuringly recognisable body, Dark Souls’ life force flows through Bloodborne’s revitalised veins. Intelligent and intense, it’s simply PS4’s best exclusive game.

Game Info

GAME INFO
Game Description / Storyline:

An action RPG in which the player embodies a Hunter who, after being transfused with the mysterious blood local to the city of Yharnam, sets off into a “night of the Hunt”, an extended night in which Hunters may phase in and out of dream and reality in order to thin the outbreak of abominable beasts that plague the land and, for the more resilient and insightful Hunters, uncover the answers to the Hunt’s many mysteries.
