  1. The game reheats the same scenario again and again, with Rayne forced to toss shmoe after shmoe into a killing device until any hint of fun is sucked bone dry. [Dec 2004, p.96]
  2. Merely an average action game featuring an overly sexy protagonist and an entertaining combat engine held back by myriad game-breaking glitches. [Jan 2005, p.106]
  3. Forgoes the spunk of its predecessor in a vain attempt to update and build a franchise, and brings mediocrity to an all time record by managing to be absolutely average in every aspect except plot-where it manages to be different and be dismal.

    As it is, it feels like a one-night brainstorming session came up with a whole bunch of random ideas thrown in a pot and clumsily stirred. There might be a good game in here somewhere, but it needs to cook a lot longer.

    Poor controls. Poor design. No story. No imagination. Very cute character.

    Kind of like Devil May Cry. Both in style and play. The graphics are well done, and the game obviously caters to the male demographic in gaming. Some tend to think that is a pure button masher. I have found that to be an easy line to place on this game. The combos are deep. The animations are well done for the fatalities and combos as well. The game is linear, and a tad on the easy side, but all in all a good game to have. Rent if that is your thing, but if you like to revisit games just to do it again, it's worth the purchase as it is indeed a fun play. Devil May Cry meets, Prince of Persia with a touch of Laura Croft thrown in with a great deal more attitude. If any of those games did something for you, you should enjoy BloodRayne 2. Full Review »

    WAY BETTER THE THE Frist one! Like a very freakiy mix of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Max Payne and Devil may cry. If your a fan of of action games, Give it a try. Full Review »
