The chaos is back! Chaos League: Sudden Death takes
off where the original game left off, improved and enhanced
to take the real-time, role-playing strategy sports title
into a whole new world of pain. The first rule of Chaos League
is simple: there are no rules. The aim of the game stays the
same score as many goals as possible and in any way possible...
those of you who bought the original Chaos
League game, this represents more of the same
- only with extra races, additional sports arenas, and the
option to attack the referee. In multiplayer mode opponents
can also goad each other via microphone.
remember Blood Bowl? No? Just me then? Blood Bowl
was a Games Workshop board game which pitted a team of Orcs
against a team of Dwarfs in a futuristic bloodsport version
of American football.
League is probably best described as a computerised
version of Blood Bowl, but with a lot more going on.
It combines real-time strategy, RPG and sports. Don't expect
any sort of fair-play. However, if your feel the current sports
games on offer are lacking such moves as "stamp", "high facial
kick", "holding on the ground", "force passage" or "ball of
fire", then you could just have found the game of your dreams.
you start playing you can choose your level. For the novice
it's best to start at the lowest setting - that way you won't
have to worry about magic attacks and some of the more complicated
elements of game play. For those who are Chaos League
fanatics, you'll be able to dive straight into the higher
levels without too many problems.
a match you can bribe the referee so that he conveniently
looks the other way while you pummel your opponents, or cheat
your way to the other side's goal. And while in the game you
can use magic to attack your opponents (turn them into blocks
of ice or have them struck by lightening) or whip up the crowd
into a frenzy.
commentators will make you smile. It has just the right balance
of twisted humour to make you stop concentrating on the game
play too hard.
all honesty though, this game is not a giant leap forward
from the original game (which is included on this disc too),
so if you already own the original version, I really wouldn't
advise buying Sudden Death.
if you don't already own the first game then you might like
to give this a try. Good fun and pretty cheap too.
