    It is a great game but very difficult even on normal. So if you aren't used to shooters like this don't feel too bad turning the difficulty down a bit. Lots of hitscan enemies.

    It's one of the greats of the Build Engine shooters next to Duke 3D and Shadow Warrior.
    Much harder then Duke 3D with a large fondness for hitscanning enemies though. Like it's really hard.

    Too many hitscan enemies with cheap placement. Even the medium difficulty is relentless. If you're going to play it, play it on the easiest mode or the one above it. Otherwise you'll be put off.

    Yes. It's the litmus test on whether you are going to like difficult shooters

    One of my favorite fps and I like everything from 30 years ago until now. I play multiple difficulties depending on my mood. I suggest playing on the lowest difficulty and not save scumming. Try to complete entire levels. After a bit of that crank the difficulty up and try to git gud, this game is worth it

    Also if you have a good time with it, try Cultic. It’s different but it’s got the TNT bundles thrown at hooded characters vibe down

    Yes. If you like the overall gameplay, weapons and mechanics I'd also suggest the DeathWish mod which really elevates the whole thing to new heights.
    Negatives, the enemies. People like to complain about the cultists for being hitscanners but they're actually fairly balanced, not like Doom 2's chaingunners who act like a health toll whenever one is half a mile away. It's every other enemy that's a wet fart, ranging from boring to deal with to annoying to deal with.
    Also a quick tip. There's these hands that choke you out, spam the "use" key to get them off.

      I wouldn't call them "balanced." Even if you've memorized the map layout they can still shred you. They're just that fast and that accurate. The shotgunners, especially can do a 180 and damn near kill you within half a second of entering your LOS.

        They're deadly, yes, but balanced. It's been a while since I've played Blood but here's what I remember.
        >They stun easily
        >Their turning speed is lower than your strafe speed
        >They only start firing at around mid-range, lIRC you can throw the dynamite farther than when they start firing
        >Crouching seems to make them miss more often
        >They loudly announce their presence
        >The dynamite bounces against walls and has a nice blast radius which is useful for any cultists right around the corner
        >decently low health
        >IIRC they don't fire the nanosecond a single pixel of Caleb is visible so there'll be times you can shoot them before they shoot you
        The cultists are what makes Blood fun. No other enemy gets you jumping around like mad and throwing dynamite around like confetti while still being balanced enough that you don't turn into swiss cheese the second you peak around a room.
        Its not the cultists that aren't balanced, it's every other enemy who lacks any real threat.

          exactly, the fishmen, the gargoyles, and both fat and thin zombies are absurdly easy to deal with

          They do.
          I agree that cultists are the best part of the game but they're broken and you will need to save-reload regardless of your FPS skill.

    Yeah, but beware the broken cultists that kinda ruin the gameplay. I think Blood GDX has custom difficulty settings that can help a bit with enemy balance

    Blood rules. Spam dynamite against the hitscan cultists, throw that shit everywhere. The game gives you a ton of dynamite for a reason. Whenever in doubt use the secondary fire to bounce it around corners and through doorways.

    yes. i'm not the biggest fan of it but it is absolutely of an objective quality that's worth at least trying out. just know that the ultra violence equivalent isn't the default difficulty like it is in doom. also the first few levels are brutally hard but the difficulty evens out once you get into the middle of the game.

    One of the best games ever made.
