"Bloodborne is an action RPG in which you hunt for answers in the ancient city of Yharnam, now cursed with a strange endemic illness spreading through the streets like a disease. Peril, death and madness infest this dark world, and you're tasked with uncovering its darkest secrets which will be necessary for you to survive. Armed with a singular arsenal of weaponry, including guns and saw cleavers, you'll require wits, strategy and reflexes to dispatch the agile and intelligent enemies that guard the city's underbelly. You will use holy chalices to access an array of vast underground ruins, chock full of traps, beasts, and rewards, to explore and conquer on your own or with other people"--From www.metacritic.com.

Bloodborne is a fast-paced action game with RPG elements included. Different from the Dark Souls series which encourages patient battle strategy, Bloodborne encourages aggression and fast reactions in terms of combat. If you find Dark Souls challenging, you will find Bloodborne more challenging.

The biggest change between Bloodborne and Dark Souls is Bloodborne's Trick Weapon mechanic. Every weapon has a transformation that changes the way it works. For example a sword may fit into a sheathe which turns the weapon into a hammer. This means that weapons tend to serve multiple purposes and have different move sets. This is a great mechanic that encourages creativity and trying out different ways of play.

In terms of story, the game has a very lore intensive story that's very hidden. The story is hidden in item descriptions and notes scattered around the game instead of in your face. For those willing to seek it out, they'll find a story about the forced evolution of mankind, the eldritch truth behind the existence of "The Great Ones", and also the attempts to ascend to godhood.

Overall, Bloodborne is a great game that emphasizes skill and curiosity. I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for a challenge.

Might as well call this a copycat of dark souls, even the interface is vastly similar.

BLOODBORNE is very much like the DARK/DEMON SOULS series, which is challenging but in a good way. If you like the uphill battle, then I recommend you charge headfirst into BLOODBORNE (or, you know, strategically draw the enemies towards you).

Much better than the soul games. But the game is still very hard. Not for casual gamers.
