  1. Agent Bloodrayne's acrobatic dexterity and quick response time would make Trinity jealous. [1 Nov 2002, p.77]
  2. I welled up every time she said "f--ker" or went into her slow-motion death dance after killing a particularly high-ranking official. [Nov 2002, p.77]

    Sure, it's violent, but the compelling play engine keeps the game exciting-even when the content frequently goes over the top.
  4. A good third-person action game that's pretty straightforward but has a few nice twists.
  5. I couldn't get over the amateurish production values, camera bugs, and shallow camera controls. [Dec 2002, p.70]
  6. Sure the FMVs look incredible and unnecessarily violent, but there aren't enough of them.
  7. BloodRayne's dull gameplay, soul crushingly overbearing sexual innuendo and uninspired design adds up to a very below-par package that makes it hard for us to find it in ourselves to recommend it to anyone.

    Awesome! Ups: Wicked gory, great enemies (especially the Daemites, creepy!), fun B-movie plot, killing Nazis, wristblades Downs: More Awesome! Ups: Wicked gory, great enemies (especially the Daemites, creepy!), fun B-movie plot, killing Nazis, wristblades Downs: More monsters would have been nice, and smarter A.I. "Guilty Pleasure" is all I can think of to describe this game. The graphics suit the mood, and it has a style reminiscent of 50's B-movies and EC Comics. The best vampire game ever made. Expand

We look at the "best" and worst examples of games-turned-movies.
