Slaughter, dismember, and behead devious enemies that seek reinforcements and plan ambushes. Acquire supernatural skills and master brutal weaponry as you progress. BloodRayne is a pulse-pounding thrillride that gets you by the jugular and won't let go until it's over. [Majesco] Expand

  1. While the action and graphics are cool to look at and play through, a poor excuse for a story and a general lack of depth to most of the game could turn off some gamers.
  2. Confused by the sometimes clunky camera angles? You can deliver your skull-smashing, thong-flashing high kicks in soothing slow motion.
  3. The combat isn't deep, the level design's not fantastic, and the AI's a bit dumb. But BloodRayne has one big thing going for it: it's fun!
  4. Even those who love the gore and carnage, I suspect that the novelty would soon wear off.
  5. A decent action-adventure that should provide players with some fun moments, albeit without any background or meaning to it. I had fun with it, but not as much fun as I could've had if the story and voice acting were even half-decent.
  6. The replay value is literally non-existent.
  7. If you can get past the unresponsive controls and don't mind the overall tasteless but campless tone, Bloodrayne still offers only a few hours of moderately entertaining carnage. [July 2003, p.85]

This game was more than worth the price tag and kicked some serious ass. The story line might have a hole or 2 and if your not moving around while in blood rage mode you may stop attacking. But this game still kicks the hell out of most other games of this genre I have played. Expand

I love this game, it's dripping with dark sexy style and is simply amazing. Its the first game I played that actually dismembers enemies along the path of the actual weapon cutting them, not going with traditional lackluster scripted decapitations or the like that are always the same killing move/moves. The heroine, Rayne, has to be the sexiest character I've ever let eyes on or played, and the action of the game is intoxicating. Nazis, intuitive excellent controls, blood and gore more than and BETTER than any other game to date, and an intelligent integrated story, 10 out of 10 easy. Expand

    Great game! Brutal ways to kill enemies with blades are the essence of game, so try not focus on weapons at the beginning so you can enjoyGreat game! Brutal ways to kill enemies with blades are the essence of game, so try not focus on weapons at the beginning so you can enjoy slashing trough enemies, like you should be able to do in any "Jedi Knight" games (someone should make ultimate brutal game around lightsabre, or katana ^^). Rayne has nice boobs which are so nicely bounce you will forget about Lara. I enjoy it so much in past that this is one of games that I would like to see again in next part ;) Expand

Other than that this game is pretty fun for the first couple of times and has its good moments. Expand

    This week's "Resident Evil: Afterlife" is yet another film adaptation of a popular videogame. Everything you've heard about the genre is true: there are a lot of terrible movies, and a lot of Uwe Boll movies. (And those categories are definitely not mutually exclusive.) We look at the "best" and worst examples of games-turned-movies.
