Blood II: The Chosen
« on: April 09, 2003, 02:02:03 AM »
I have just find that this game is now available at http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?id=4154

what do you think about? is it worse to play through (i will sure do it in the next future)

would you like some review for it?

Blood 2

Well first of all, I don't think abandonware is ever legal. And I believe you can still by the game on the net... But I guess it's ok to download cause Monolith doesn't have the rights to the game anymore. (it now belongs to Infogrames; why it's so hard to recieve Blood's scource code)

Blood 2 is nowhere near as good as original Blood.

1. It has lost a lot of that spooky, gothic atmosphere that made Blood so  
    good.

2. Neither do I like the concept of The Chosen: everyone just wants to
    play with Caleb.

3. Caleb's voice is no longer dark and spooky.

4. The add-on "The nightmare Levels" is one of the worst (and shortest)
    add-ons I have ever played.

5. Where are the cultists ?

As for positive points: - cool weapons
                                   

So basicly it's a nice game, but nothing compared to original Blood.

Aren't you kidding? :eek: I will download it right now! :D

And yes abandonware is legal: A company declares that the game is "dead", that is... they won't sell it anymore, they won't give more support, etc. so it's legal to include it in abandonware pages. I don't know how's the case with Blood 2 but was like I'm saying now with for example windows 95

Yes, I know the cultists are now the guys with the sunglasses...

I just meant that the original cultists (the ones in the robes) were much cooler and scarier... (they make a short re-appereance in the nightmare levels btw)

Abandonware legal??? I doubt it. I'm a law student (second year) and I made some studies on it and I asked it to some fellow-students...

Is abandonware legal?

"Unfortunately, no. Despite the fact that publishers no longer derive revenues from these games since they have stopped selling them (and any revenues from retailers that still sell them were gained a long time ago, at the time of sale), it is illegal to distribute them so long as copyright holders have not released them into the public domain, or until 75 years after the games' release date has elapsed."

Since the Blood 2 source is released, it's only about some experiments with it, a handy .rez-extractor, a bottle of Scotch and in the end you'll put it all together.

Blood ii is a pretty good game, just dont play it on the easiest skill cos then the enemies will be splattered on the walls even if you use the beretta... Original Blood is much bettr.

Free? Sounds good. I tried the demo some years ago and I liked it. Better than the original.
