The time has come! Our official Game of the Month is…
With another platform’s highly lauded exclusive to compete with (Ori and the Blind Forest), Bloodborne had some stiff competition, but the MONG team seems in rather rare agreement that it deserved the win over all other spectacular releases in March. In recent memory, no other title has so resoundingly earned the Game of the Month title.
As someone given the opportunity to review Bloodborne for all of you fine folks, I’m pleased as punch that its notorious difficulty hasn’t scared gamers away from the game’s imaginative artstyle, its engrossing gameplay, and a setting that’s gushing with so much more than the blood of a Hunter’s foes.
On the surface, the game’s plot may seem a little weak, but one weekend stroll through Yharnam’s haunting streets alludes to a rare, passive storytelling that only goes deeper and draws darker over the time gamers invest in it.
Even with its lengthy load screens and an occasional blip in performance, Bloodborne has been able to surpass the successes of the Souls franchise, reportedly selling over 1 million copies only three weeks after its release. Clearly, From Software has created a singular experience that any owner of a PlayStation 4 should at least attempt before shying away from its frightful enemies and mesmerizingly addictive difficulty.
March’s Top Four Games:
- Bloodborne – 43 points
- Ori and the Blind Forest – 20 points
- Axiom Verge – 11 points
- Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number – 11 points
