  1. Agent Bloodrayne's acrobatic dexterity and quick response time would make Trinity jealous. [1 Nov 2002, p.77]
  2. A fun diversion for those looking for one. The graphics and gameplay, especially the cool powers and abilities sported by Rayne make it an above average action title.
  3. The unique ways to dispose of your enemies, along with the various abilities Rayne has, keeps you pushing forward, though each stage does seem to have its own area that you'll want to skip over.
  4. Some great visuals and the ability to pull off attacks straight out of "The Matrix" make this game a lot of fun at times, but uneven pacing and an overall lack of challenge prevent it from scoring higher.

    Despite some nice features, the overly repetitive gameplay will probably wear thin after a bit.
  6. Despite its cleverly conceived features and options, the actual execution is missing something. [Dec 2002, p.98]
  7. Half-baked doesn’t even begin to describe this fodder – which is a shame because even with its clichéd eccentricity it could have won as an example of style over substance. It doesn’t.
