Quotation forthcoming.50Gamekult
Time is the worst enemy of this game. The first moments are great, but after a couple of hours it becomes incredibly monotonous and repetitive.50Eurogamer Spain
This game may offer some hours of fun, especially in multiplayer, and it is not expensive, but overall is has much to improve.50Vandal
The result is that the game’s flow shudders and starts – a ponderous affair punctuated by sudden bouts of extremely messy and imprecise combat.50Official Xbox Magazine UK
Rather dull and lifeless. [Issue#67, p.101]50X-ONE Magazine UK
Terrible combat. [Jan 2011, p.89]40Games Master UK
A spectacular failure in terms of content and technical quality. Don’t bother.35PALGN
The game feels unique, looks good, and adds a new twist not seen in a lot of multiplayer games.75ZTGD
Bloody Good Time is the spiritual successor to The Ship. It maintains its quirky style of action and strategy combined with a Sim-like gameplay. At its current low pricepoint it’s hard to pass up
This unusual first-person shooter barely boasts enough content to justify even its budget price tag.65GameSpot
