the techno synth music for the maps I do not prefer in Blood 2 compared to the brilliant tunes (especially midi) we hear in Blood 1. Seriously, the tune that plays during E1M2 just creates a really cool and somber atmosphere. I can't explain it. In fact, all the tunes work well for their map's mood.

I like the old graphics of the original ove the 'sleeker' Blood 2. Too much eye candy. THese newer games make you feel liek you're touring Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. I like it grainy and gritty and I like sprites that face me even when I run around it.

Blood 2 was supposed to be bigger and better of course, but it lacks charm

Blood 2 is an okay game, it's just not a fitting sequel to Blood which was for it's time
and is even now pretty much Perfect

- schedule it for may 2000
- more actual blood
- don't get GT's staff involved
- focus last 8 months on level design

It's a topic like this that reminds me I'm turning into an old man.

Thankfully not a whinging old man though, otherwise I'd be whinging about Blood 2 in a topic like this.

Honestly, there needs to be a sticky on "Issues with Blood 2", because I'm tired of being re-informed with the same old complaints.

And yes yes yes, I realise I'm being a whinging old man by posting a reply like this, but I felt it needed to be said.

As for Blood 2, I liked it, despite some of its bugs. Recently, a couple of mods have enchanced that enjoyment for me. I (at least currently) have no real desire to change it. Blood is Blood. Blood 2 is Blood 2. And they're both great.

And I like Ophelia in Blood 2.

my Blood 2

Post by scar3crow » Tue Jun 12, 2007 09:47 pm

Tchernobog was saved from your wrath only through his ambition and arrogance. He assumed he was powerful enough to stop you, and anxious to consume your power and throw open the gates between the worlds he readily assumed a physical form for the immediate invasion he planned, shortly after crushing you under heel.

But it didn't work out that way, you were fierce, and his physical form lacked the power, and thus he was thrust back into the non-corporeal, The Dreaming God once more.

Neither alive nor dead, you become the vindictive vagabond, roaming America and Europe, until the world enters into conflict once again. The war to end all wars they say, but it is just another war you have no interest in. Something does interest you however, the whispers in taverns, figures in the far thrown shadows of a moonlit graveyard. They are re-assembling. They are inspired by his divining madness. The Cabal have faith once again, as their long feared god was merely absent, but far from destroyed.

Seizing township, citizens of all manner, recruiting through the draconian verbosity of their dagger tongues, the Cabal grows strong under the shadow of the world war, entrenching itself deep within eastern Europe and the American west once again, you must seek out its prophets and discern with shell and blade where their newfound madness' inspiration comes from.

A vagabond no more, but yet again a undead crusader to wreak hell upon those who dared betray you, seek out the Cabal in their lands! Slay their minions, and dispose of The One Who Binds' new disciples of all the corners of the earth dread, even more than this great war.

i liked blood2's setting. it was pretty good. it was other things that just ruined the game to hell.

for all i care, i'd love to see a good remake and extended version of original game on some modern engine. with detail at least of painkiller level.

for that you need all the original members and lots of money and time.

Blood 3 should be set during a prehistoric time.

Blood with dinosaurs. Caleb gets a loin cloth. Monolith invents a sledgehammer joypad.

This thread is more constructive than I at first thought.

Caleb keeps the hat, right? So we'd have our protagonist... running around in a loin cloth and hat chucking spears at dinosaurs? I doubt he'd have guns if he was in prehistoric times... so yeah I like chucking spears.
