    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.
  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.

    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]
  5. 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.
  6. Confused by the sometimes clunky camera angles? You can deliver your skull-smashing, thong-flashing high kicks in soothing slow motion.

    Agent Bloodrayne's acrobatic dexterity and quick response time would make Trinity jealous. [1 Nov 2002, p.77]

    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 »
