Bloodstroke Review

A portion of a Hardcore Droid review…

After playing Bloodstroke for a while, I started to wonder how involved John Woo was in the creation of this game. Sure, it has an action movie feel, but I never felt the intensity of those gunfights like I would if I was watching a movie. Maybe this comes from the top-down perspective, but the game never achieved the crescendo that it could have. Bloodstroke instead plays it safe, opting to stay at a comfortable neutral instead of shifting its gears and speeding up the action. There were no slow motion dives or funny one-liners. Mai is badass, but pretty one-dimensional, and other characters are mostly there to just show up and reference backstory that is never fully explained. The game is reminiscent of John Woo movies, but nnot nearly as satisfying.
