Awesomest game I ever played!
29 December 2010 | by rafenwulfSee all my reviews

If you're into Metal you must play this game! Even more so if you like hack n slash, free roaming and Jack Black's typical sense of humour. I just got lost in the beautifully crafted world of Bladehenge, and fell in love with all the characters and vehicles. Great selection in music, the combat system works excellent, fun side missions, epic movie-like storyline and a well-chosen breathable atmosphere. It's total fantasy clad in a brilliantly exaggerated heavy metal theme, but you buy it the minute you see it. In one word: Awesome! Too bad the game ended earlier than I expected though, leaving me praying for a sequel!

Anyone know where I can order a Druid Plough hotrod?
