  1. Terminal Reality and Majesco prove once again that videogame sequels don't suck - that is of course, unless they're supposed to.
  2. An excellent follow up to the original. It provides plenty of the action, and it is one of the bloodiest games I have seen to date.
  3. What Terminal Reality has managed to create in the two years succeeding the Bloodrayne debut borders on miraculous. [Nov 2004, p.72]
  4. A fun, challenging game for the first three stages, with varied gameplay and a likeable heroine... Once you get beyond that point, you'll find it increasingly frustrating... or you'll start cheating madly in the name of basic survival.
  5. Provides a viscerally enjoyable experience pretty much from beginning to end. The game certainly has its blemishes, and it's definitely not the deepest or headiest action title you'll ever experience, but underneath those problems is a stylish and gory action game with enough kills and thrills to keep you entertained.

    For a lot of players, the excellent graphics and high levels of violence and sex appeal will be more than enough to keep Bloodrayne 2 spinning. It's really a shame that the A.I. is so daft, and even with all the acrobatics, the very linear levels don't truly captivate.

    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.

    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 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. Expand

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