I live…again!“, those were the exact words that the anti-hero Caleb said out loud for the very first time in Monolith Productions classic horror FPS game “Blood”.

Most of the graphics and visuals have been improved in “Blood: Fresh Supply”. However, the old in-game cutscenes are still the same ones as they were back in 1997, and they have not aged very well…

Well, that was back in 1997, and now in 2019, I (with so many others) are hearing that very same and famous quote from Caleb once again (I think that it might actually be the one video game quote that most people still remember to this very day).

“I live…again!” – Caleb, anno 1997 and also in the current year.

However, this time that quote (and everything else that has made “Blood” so loved by fans over the years) are to be found in an updated 2019 version of “Blood” (Atari and NightDive Studios have done a great job dusting off “Blood” and putting it in a better-looking suit).

“Blood” really lives up to its name, as there’s plenty of blood, guts and gore to be seen throughout the whole game.

That’s right, because “Blood: Fresh Supply” is more or less an upgraded and fine-tuned version of the original “Blood” from 1997.

You see, the graphics, sound, music (I still think that the “Blood” soundtrack kicks tons of ass) and much more has been improved.

It’s a whole lot of fun to set your enemies on fire in “Blood”. So much so that you can’t help to smile for yourself every time that it happens (burn baby burn!).

For starters, “Blood” now supports DirectX 11, OpenGL 3.2, high resolutions and 4K monitors. Simply put, “Blood” has never EVER looked, sounded or felt any better than it does in “Blood: Fresh Supply”.

The sawed-off shotgun is with no doubt my favorite weapon in “Blood”. Because not only is it a very powerful weapon, but you can also blow off the heads of your enemies with ease if you use it right.

Furthermore, B:FS also runs without any problems whatsoever on modern computers (I had zero problems with the game under Win 7 and Win 10). So that means that B:FS should work like a charm for pretty much everyone.

One would think that Caleb and “Blood” would have aged terribly since their 1997 debut. However, “Blood: Fresh Supply” has made “Blood” and Caleb fit for fight again in the year 2019.

Other than that, I got pleasantly surprised when I realized that B:FS actually comes with both the “Plasma Pak” and “Cryptic Passage” expansion.

Why? Because it’s been ages since I played any of them, and now I got a chance to do so with better visuals and much more in B:FS.

blood fresh supply zombie head vs caleb

Yes, just like in the original game of “Blood”, you can play soccer with the zombie heads in “Blood: Fresh Supply” as well.

As for the actual game itself. Well, “Blood” is “Blood”, only this time it’s the best version of “Blood” yet.

So that means that you get to enjoy killing tons of enemies and bosses with all sorts of crazy weapons and items, and since you get “Blood” together with its two expansion packs, you got plenty of stages to play through.

blood fresh supply cult bastards vs napalm

“Blood” offers a rather big and crazy weapons arsenal, and that includes everything from a flare gun, voodoo doll, Tommy gun, sawed-off shotgun to a napalm-launcher.

It’s also pretty freaking awesome that you can now play “Blood” in a co-op online mode together with a friend (there are plenty of other gameplay modes to be enjoyed as well, such as the 4v4 team-based “Capture The Flag”  mode).

It’s pretty darn impressive that I’m still playing “Blood” somewhat 22-years later after its original release back in 1997 (“Blood: Fresh Supply” has brought in some fresh air and life into the game with no doubt).

So, all in all, I have to say that “Blood: Fresh Supply” has managed (against all odds) to make “Blood” relevant in the year 2019, and that’s one hell of an achievement considering the fact that the original game is over 22-years old.

So if you liked the original “Blood” game (or old-school-like FPS games in general), then you should most definitely buy and play “Blood: Fresh Supply” as soon as possible, trust me, you won’t regret it!

Pros:
+ “Blood: Fresh Supply” has taken everything that made “Blood” great and made the game even better.
+ You get the original “Blood” and Plasma Pak and “Cryptic Passage” to a very good price.
+ Better graphics, higher resolutions (there’s even support for 4K monitors now!), sound and music quality.
+ Caleb, his dark humor and his unforgettable quotes.
+ Tons of crazy weapons and items to use.
+ Plenty of levels, monsters and bosses to blast your way through.
+ The game’s soundtrack is beyond epic.
+ You can now look up and down with the new 3D view feature.
+ Online co-op support, you can also fight against each other over LAN in a handful of different game modes.

Cons:
– The enemy A.I can be rather stupid at times.
– It would be nice if you could get some confirmation on that your game has been saved.
– Some people might find “Blood” to be rather hardcore when it comes to the game’s difficulty settings.

Gameplay: 5/5
Graphics: 4/5
Sound and music: 5/5
Controls: 5/5
Replay value: 5/5
Story: 3/5

tgg grade 4.5 out of 5

Verdict: 4.5/5
“Blood: Fresh Supply” has managed to take all the parts that made “Blood” great and made them even better.

Furthermore, you get the original “Blood” and the Plasma Pak and “Cryptic Passage” expansions to a very good price if you decide to pick up “Blood: Fresh Supply”.

It’s also worth pointing out that both the original game and the expansion packs runs like a charm on a modern computer as well.

In other words, B:FS is a must buy and play for anyone who loves old-school-like FPS games with a modern touch to it.
