Seems CA is heading into a Golden Age of production!
I for one am loving CA right now haha
1) Blood effects by themselves are great. Even for a veteran gamer and avid movie watcher, the blood letting here makes the stomach churn. I haven't seen this much samurai bloodshed since Kozure Okami!
2) The blood spurting effect from arrow hits is really satisfying, and for the sake of gameplay, I'm not too concerned about realism (as I'm sure some here will be). I bow hunt every season, I'm not looking for realistic blood spurts from arrows here.
3) The decapitations fit the animations, and you all know which animations should have had them. Well, now they do, and it's bloody gross - as in AWSOME bloody gross!
4) Arrows are no longer the nice looking attracitve brown with shining broadheads. They're very dark, actually too dark. Craig/CA, can we get the originals back?
5)Blood splattering the screen really puts you there, very immersive.
CA, thanks for this, what a pleasant surprise! Put's great character in the game until the next expansion comes out.
...Any more of these little cookies in the future to tied us over?
I still don`t buy the charging money excuse, just give it a rating like every other 18 rated game and that`s it.
But this begs another question.... Why not just make it so modders could have done it for free?
The blood effects are awesome in the first person camera, the splatter on the screen is really fitting in that perspective. Check out these screenshots I took.
Decapitiation in progress...

While the blood`s over the top a bit, it certainly adds new meaning to the battlefield and you really feel sorry for that poor guy who just got his throat cut open by an enemy spear on your behalf!
PS - I'm not one of them.
This is now a $75 Warscape engine game with the dlc -- and very limited modding

I'm gonna get off the bandwagon here and just say that the blood splatter is way too much. Also, the color and the pure "texture" of the blood seems like it's set to low instead of high. I like that CA incorporated blood into the game, but I don't think they did a very good job at it. The blood splatter is to say the least a bit too much, but I can bear with that as long as the blood has decent color, (more dark red) and more fluid and "soft". Right now it just looks like a bucket of red paint. Or well, slightly better than a bucket of red paint.
What ?! I have to paid again if I want blood effects ?!
Why don't you make dlc for shadow effects ? And perhaps in the next TW we will have to buy a dlc for every color we want in the game, otherwise it will be in black & white ?
That's really scandalous. Don't take us like fools for too long, dear CA.
I'm really scandalised, this should be a free option, like turning on/off the bloom effect.
That's all for me. I won't buy anymore of your games or dlc. Enough.
I Don't care of that stupids excuses. I don't believe any word. Ca only want to make money despite their beautiful words. The facts are here: if you want more minor content, you will have to buy for it.
nice to see them have the balls to add something like that, but its more despicable for them to charge for it.. should have been optional in the game from the get go.

In any case, it's refreshing to see that SEGA cleared something that I know people have been requesting for some time. In fact, two things!
