    Agent Bloodrayne's acrobatic dexterity and quick response time would make Trinity jealous. [1 Nov 2002, p.77]
  2. Packs an amazing amount of depth, challenge and excitement.

    Sure, it's violent, but the compelling play engine keeps the game exciting-even when the content frequently goes over the top.
  4. Confused by the sometimes clunky camera angles? You can deliver your skull-smashing, thong-flashing high kicks in soothing slow motion.

    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]

    Don't confuse it for a 3D adventure. So long as gamers go in knowing that -- expecting fights and gore versus puzzle solving and a deep, engaging quest of some sort -- they should come away happy in spite of its quick play through and lack of originality.
  7. Even though the game is set in the 1930s, BloodRayne looks more like a young high school goth-boy's fantasy woman, with a very trendy hair cut and a mix of leather and Victoria's Secret undergarments.

    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. Full Review »
