Storyline

Bloodborne takes place in Yharnam - an eerie, Gothic, and near-ruined city which is rumored to house a mysterious remedy that cures the various afflictions of the townsfolk and travelers who make their way there. You take control of one of these travelers who, upon arrival, discovers that the city has been plagued by a disease related to the so-called miracle cure which has turned a lot of its people into horrifying creatures simply known as "beasts." You agree to become a hunter of these beasts and subsequently become connected to the strange, nightmarish world. The only way out is to stop the beastly scourge. Are you prepared to hunt your nightmares? Written by Dirk McThermot

Thank Nyarlathotep for the game
18 May 2015 | by residentgrigoSee all my reviews

I beat Bloodborne after 30 hours with a level of 109 (i got the "give in" and the "true" final boss ending as i backed up my save) and have most of the trophies as i did all the secrets but the chalice dungeon final boss / rune as these dungeons are a good idea but they are too generic as of now. I messed around with co-op a bit (this is how you get invaded too) but i power-leveled so hard that i had trouble to get partners later so i did the heavy duty myself and kind of broke the game. Most of my later deaths came form cheap (back) attacks and from falling off stuff... Ludwig's Holy Blade is THE weapon of choice and guns are garbage but i am glad that magic went as that was borderline cheating earlier. This is overall the easiest of the 4 but the later secret areas are too hard to trigger at times without a guide and it is also pretty easy to loose the critical path during the first half. The game design is also heavily streamlined and blocking is a thing of the past so my Ninja Gaiden reflexes did double duty. Overall the best one after Dark Souls 1 so join the Esoteric Order of Dagon today! Lovecraft literacy helps btw. but the story is way too hidden this time so watch Bloodborne Lore - The Story on youtube after finishing to even get the basics and i would love to play a big budget Armored Core next.
