Aug 13, 2011BloodRayne still kicking some tail from triumph (BloodRayne 1 & 2 games/comics) to utter tragedy (Uwe Boil's awful BloodRayne movies). But the original game is the best damn PS2 game period. I have some major problems with the bugs and loading screens, but with stylin' graphics, punishing moves, and a sexy gothic dhampir with an attitude problem, trust me. She can handle it her own way by using her sharp blades and feeds her passion for blood and more blood. Can't wait till Betrayal coming out soon on PSN. I wonder they could put both BloodRayne games and turn it into an HD experience.… Expand
Apr 2, 2013A pretty decent game that really puzzles me a little in its design. The first Act of the game is utter garbage. It's so bad that you almost feel like just not bothering with the rest of the game. BUT, then the Act is over you get a DAMN cool cut scene and then it turns into a really, really fun game. It's almost like after the first Act the developers decided to fire everyone and start with a different team for the rest of the game. Why on earth they didn't make the first Act like the rest of the game is beyond me. So yes, if you keep to it you discover a really great game with some great combat mechanics. Perhaps a bit too easy at times. But regardless, It's still cool being a sexy vampire assassin with guns. This game also doesn't hold back on gore either. This is perhaps the goriest title I can think of on the PS2 (aside from the Manhunt games.)
Aside from a terrible opening act, the game blossoms into something fun and gory. No real challenge, but still great to play.… Expand
Jan 20, 2013The graphics have aged horribly, and the controls are awful. Fighting with the controls happens more frequently than fighting with the enemies (who pose no threat to Rayne at all). The opening chapter is tedious and not what you'd want from this game, and the final boss is ridiculously tedious as well. This just isn't a good game, and as much as I wanted to like it, I cannot recommend it on any level. Play Bloodrayne 2 instead.… Expand
Published: September 8, 2010This 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.
