Title
Blood is a first-person shooter game released in 1997 by Monolith Productions. The game is often compared to Doom due to their similarities as 90s FPS games, but Blood stands out with its unique gameplay and level design. Blood is more reminiscent of the original Castlevania or even F-Zero rather than Doom. One of the game's appeals is the challenge it presents to players, which requires them to remember enemy placement, map layout, and strategies to overcome the game's difficulties.

Playing Blood feels different from playing Doom, as it offers a more challenging gameplay experience. Blood's difficulty is not simply about being able to shoot accurately or quickly; it requires players to think critically and use strategy. Players must remember the enemy placement and be able to adapt their strategy accordingly. Additionally, the map layout is crucial to success in Blood. Players must take the time to explore and memorize the level design to progress in the game.

Despite being released over two decades ago, Blood still holds up as a great game. It offers a unique gameplay experience that separates it from other 90s FPS games. The game's challenging nature and focus on strategy make it a must-play for fans of the genre. Overall, Blood is an excellent game that is sure to provide hours of challenging and enjoyable gameplay for players who are willing to put in the effort to master it.

Title
Arguably the best game made with the Build engine, at least technically. It's certainly the most challenging as even at the lowest level of difficulty, there are monsters and situations that are taxing.

By today's semi-exacting standards, it's pixelated nonsense, but at the time it was enormous fun, and just remember folks - there's no business like show business like...

Title
This is the best shooter from the classic 2.5D era of shooters but the only thing keeping it from being practically perfect is the behaviour of a few enemies, including the hitscanners having reaction times comparable to Nightmare enemies in Doom.

the pinnicle of classic fps for me. the artstyle, level design, humour, writing, one liners, theyre all awesome. the game just reeks of badassery. the weapons are super memorable and really fun to use, and beating every level feels rewarding. cool game.

8.5/10

    why are boomer shooter players so obsessed with atmosphere?
    reply
    • to_noid_or_not_to_noid 2024-05-08 20:33:25.40983+00
      Because it’s nice when games put in the effort to evoke a palpable sense of atmosphere. Through art direction or sound or what have you. Makes the game(s) feel lived in and believable. This explanation of mine isn’t rooted in boomer shooters only - it can come out of and applies to any genre/type of game.
    • Aliens2Exist 2024-05-26 20:30:57.840351+00
      play a crappy unity game from the past 10 years and you'll understand how atmosphere is important to immersion
    • daskull 2024-06-20 04:07:24.200236+00
      because atmosphere is one of the best aspects of video games as a medium?

    I love the game, but some of the levels are a little bit too obscure with the progression path. You can be wandering around the level for half an hour searching for some hidden ass button and then another half an hour searching for what that damn button opened.
