BlazeBowl is a new free add-on (game mode) that brings a top-down American football style game into the world of BlazeRush. A super cool and tactical game where the goal is to put the ball on the other side of the field. A great dynamic racing arena sports game that really takes the cooperative online (up to 4 locally and up to 8 players online) multiplayer experience to a new level. There are a lot of medals to achieve, the game looks amazing and plays like no other game that you've played before.
BlazeRush was one of my favorite games that I've played 2015. This time the developer Targem Games made a big twist and instead of adding new maps to the original racing game, it added a new type of game mode, completely different than what you have now. This certainly refreshes the game and adds a completely new gameplay experience. I really like games where things are getting really crazy on the screen and BlazeBowl is in my opinion, one of the best ball games alongside the popular Rocket League.
It's like Rocket League. Each team needs to put the ball on the other side of the stadium. On Rocket League there is a net, but here it's played more like an American Football, whether in Rocket League it plays like a soccer game, but the goal is the same. One of the main difference is that players can actually pick up the ball and rush with it towards the touchdown area, so it's unlike Rocket League where you can just kick (in Rocket League there is one mode though where you have a magnetic ability where you can grab it, but that ability is random and it takes time to charge up).
I also really love the grungy stadium design, the sound effects of cars bumping against each other, the amazing special effects, the explosion animation where you smash another opponent and throw him out of the field, it's just crazy!
Above all that, this add-on is exclusive for Oculus Store when you buy BlazeRush and you can enjoy all this amazing madness in virtual reality. You can play it alone or invite friends and play with them against the AI (bots).
You know, I really love the fact that it plays more like an American Football than soccer like in Rocket League, because it's easier to control the ball, and this is one of the things that makes BlazeBowl more accessible even more fun to play for newcomers. You can pass the ball to another opponent and do everything you can to stop the other team from getting the ball or interfering the player who got the ball and rushes towards the touchdown line.
Blaze Rush players couldn't ask for a better add-on and it's FREE! If you haven't played BlazeRush before, maybe this new added game mode will convince you to get it. BlazeRush itself is top-down vehicular combat game that was initially released in October 2014 and has received very positive reviews from the Steam community. I know that there are many racing games available, but BlazeRush was really one of the most satisfying ones to play due to the large variety of cars, weapons, achievements, tracks and unlockable items and it's addictive as hell.
This new add-on will appeal to both newcomers and old players. It's the best Targem Games could have done to freshen up the game and add a new different layer of gameplay experience that is completely different than the how the original game plays. If this is an add-on to the game, I just wonder what Targem Games would come up with next.
This also shows the commitment of the developer to making their core game even better and to provide players with unique and engaging content that will definitely make this game stay with us for years to come and bring back the Oculus Rift gamers that waited for a new expansion like this to freshen up the gameplay experience.
If you don't own BlazeRush, this is the perfect time to buy it and enjoy this new amazing game mode BlazeBowl on your Oculus Rift VR headset—Highly recommended!
