Alder’s Blood is an intricately detailed game that draws you thoroughly into its world. It is immediately dark and mysterious and you can’t help but soak up the themes of loyalty and compassion, even in scenes of brutal slaughter, betrayal and fear. It is provocative and challenging in a way that hooks you and doesn’t let go.
In Alder’s Blood, I loved to feel like a badass hunter, but the less empowering parts of the game were mostly frustrating. After many hours, I felt like I had seen what there was to see. The story remains compelling, but the gameplay loop starts to grow predictable. There are only so many mission types, and another kind of lumbering beast doesn’t drastically change what you are doing. But Alder’s Blood stuck with me in a strange way that few games do — I credit that to the imaginative story and the eerie tone.
Alder’s Blood is a game I want to recommend because it does have a lot going for it. The gameplay is competent with some unique elements, and it has a great theme and visuals. However, due to the issues present in this review build I would recommend waiting on some patches. If you’re looking for your next SRPG and love Bloodborne‘s themes and setting, then Alder’s Blood is the game for you. Just maybe not in its current state.
