Top Critic Average
Bloodroots looks phenomenal, and plays equally so in its best moments.
Bloodroots' wacky arsenal, intriguing world, and striking art design make for a gory, gorgeous, and great time.
A highly enjoyable action romp, with a winning sense of humour and a hugely entertaining range of unusually varied weapons.
The story is fun to follow, but the real joy comes from playing levels over and over again to create the perfect combo run
Forget standoffs and cattle rustling--Bloodroots turns the Wild West into a chaotic murder cartoon.
Despite some minor flaws, Bloodroots is a manically fun game that oozes style. Discovering new and unique ways to use the extremely varied arsenal to my advantage kept me coming back again and again. Even when I died (and believe me, I died plenty), I was thoroughly enjoying myself. If you're in the mood for a fast, stylish action game with plenty of challenge, Bloodroots might be just what you're looking for.
You will swear at the screen a lot when playing Bloodroots. Mr Wolf will die hundreds if not thousands of times throughout your run, and sometimes you'll just need to put the game down and walk away. Yet Bloodroots can sink its claws into you in a way that few games do. It is a challenge put in front of you that you will want to prove you can overcome. Freaking Bloodroots, man.
Bloodroots offers a satisfying gameplay loop, and the variety of weapons often make up for the overly difficult areas.
Bloodroots is a good game with different finishes and links in the use of items, but it clearly lacks development, and the bright mechanics and blood are too quickly exhausted. And unlike My Friend Pedro or Hotline Miami, there is no feeling of excitement and pleasure from the just-tested combat combination. This is probably the main reason for frustration.
