Blood Bowl II’s concept was like it was tailor-made for me. American football mixed with a fantasy setting using D&D dice rolls for actions? That sounds like a geek dream come true for me, but unfortunately, implementation mixed with probability that may have my advantages in mind, but untimely work out to my disadvantage makes for a game that is both frustrating and unfortunate for me.
Perhaps if Cyanide had stuck less rigorously to the board game and streamlined some of the processes, then they’d have made a better video game too, albeit one that could have alienated their hardcore fanbase. Yet overall, Blood Bowl 2 is a step forward. It's a much friendlier, easier game than its predecessors, with improved looks, a tutorial campaign, controller support, and the UI improvements. New players won't feel blocked off from enjoying it.
Whilst Blood Bowl 2's strict adherence to the franchise's rules may dissuade some from even trying this out, those that do take the plunge and stick with it will find that despite its faults, it can be a deeply rewarding and enriching experience. The AI isn't really up to snuff though, so expect to ride a long learning curve to be able to become competitive online - if you can find a game.
