Review: Bloodforge (This Is My Joystick)

The game begins on an unfortunate day for our poor hero. Crom comes home from deer hunting to find his village under attack from strange enemies Crom recognizes from a dream. He leaps into the action to save his wife, whom he wisely advises to take refuge in a burning hut. Of course, in typical revenge story fashion, his advice does no good and Crom ends up killing her by mistake.

The story never becomes very engaging. It’s the typical ‘vengeance for dead wife’ tale, which has been told again and again in every medium. It’s not all bad. The dialogue is actually very smooth and fun, and the character’s banter is at least somewhat intelligent. It’s simply average. (Bloodforge, Xbox 360) -
