Bloodshore is another great example of interactive movies that shows Wales Interactive shaping up to be the masters of the form. They have taken the core aspects that made the early Telltale adventure games so compelling and married them with well cast and decently acted stories. The depiction of game contestants with greedy or noble motivations while at the whims of mysterious overlords makes this an interesting counterpoint to the phenomenon that is Squid Game, Battle Royale, The Hunger Games.

Bloodshore is a short and sweet FMV game with good acting and characters, let down by a lack of branching narrative and a sometimes passive gameplay experience.

Bloodshore continues Wales Interactive's streak of entertaining interactive genre films, this time in the exploitation late-night action arena. With a fun battle royale plot, a few twists and turns, and some gnarly violence, Bloodshore provides several runs worth of solid entertainment. Cleaner in editing than some recent efforts, Bloodshore is a step in the right direction for interactive films.

The story is slight, the acting is rubbish, and the special effects are merely effects. The synthwave soundtrack is actually really good. It lasts an hour and change which, like most Wales Interactive movie-games, is absolutely perfect. You probably already know if you think you're going to like this, and if you do you're probably right. We liked it, but mainly for the wrong reasons.
