  1. Whether she’s harpoon-tossing enemies into a crusher on a garbage truck or a downed helicopter’s whirring blades, or rail sliding 40 feet and slicing through a bunch of enemies taking shots at her, Rayne has the gaming world by the throat.
  2. It's easy on your hardware (mid-range rigs will run it without a hitch) and it offers a sufficient number of gameplay hours. Providing, however, you play it with the right frame of mind.
  3. A hugely enjoyable, polished action-adventure with buckets and buckets of OTT gore. If you thought "Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines" too cerebral, its slasher B-movie blood relative could HAVE MORE BITE.

    Misses a few crucial tricks which could have given it greater mass appeal. [Mar 2006, p.97]

    It doesn't have much depth, but BloodRayne 2 delivers on its simple promise of offering non-stop carnage. If that sets your blood a-boil, give it a shot. [Oct 2005, p.65]
  6. As great as it is to be sliding down a banister firing off both guns before holding out your blades to slice into two anyone unlucky enough to be standing near the bottom as you pass, the sloppy controls and quirks in the design do prevent BR2 from being anything more than a reasonably-decent third-person action-slasher.
  7. If you’re after a simple and enjoyable hack and slash game, with lots of violence and blood, Blood Rayne 2 will be ideal, and yes, it’s worth playing, if only via a rental.
  8. BloodRayne 2 could have been great if the gamepad support wasn’t so quirky, but the PC version is just too clunky to recommend unless this is your only alternative.
  9. It just has such a bad story that you won't play it after a while.

    If you didn't like BR2 on the consoles, its awkward controls and dated visuals on the PC won't change your mind. In the time between the console and PC releases, several titles have come out that nearly eliminate BR2's fun factor. At this point, it's just a competent port of a passably fun game.
  11. BloodRayne 2 was perfectly fine on consoles, despite the game's problems, but a significant amount of time has passed, and the notion of the exact same game from last year coming out--now on the PC, with serious control issues and graphical hangups--is kind of an offensive one.
  12. You'll sleep through most of the challenges, though, as your vampiric superpowers are so unbalanced that you'll cut a bloody path through the action in no time...even if you suck at these kinds of games. [Oct 2005, p.80]
  13. While Terminal Reality attempts to break up the monotony of this fighting game by including some jumping and leaping "puzzles," turning Rayne into a wannabe Olympic gymnast, it's simply not enough to give this any real depth. It's a good game... for what it is.

    Everything about BloodRayne 2 - save some of the snazzy 3D effects - screams "1998." [Nov 2005, p.72]

    Bloodrayne 2 was like the best looking game I have ever played in 2005 and the fact that rayne was actually opening her mouth when talking wasBloodrayne 2 was like the best looking game I have ever played in 2005 and the fact that rayne was actually opening her mouth when talking was impressive....I first saw bloodrayne 2 in a pc games magazine where it was rated on the second place before gta san andreas..I felt that controls where good and that graphics were amazing ,well, back in 2005 .The gameplay is great and in concordance with the music which makes you wanna blow up thinks and slash enemies.If you have controls problems try lowering the mouse sensibility or configure buttons.I had no problems with the controls at all.Honestly I don't know why reviewers where so harsh on this game it makes me feel disappointed with them.yes it may be a little linear but this makes it special and helps guiding you trough the cool revengeful story step by step. BLOODRAYNE 2 is definitely a must have game and you should not care what others think. Full Review »

    totally disappointed in this game after first bloodrayne. Even from first minutes I understood that everything is lost here, starting fromtotally disappointed in this game after first bloodrayne. Even from first minutes I understood that everything is lost here, starting from level design and graphics and ending weapon equipment and gameplay in general. I see that developers worked hard, tried to make ir bloody and brutal, but it didn't save game. After 2-3 hours it becomes to bad-ported trash slasher, while first bloodrayne was quite the opposite. same enemies, a lot of bugs, general complexity... All this make game just unplayable. I remember places where I couldn't get 10-15 minutes what to do next. And after long long time eventually found that it needed just **** shoot with your hook in boss or in some thing. + there was a lot of hard almost impassable levels, where you meet bosses every 5-10 steps and there is no bots to replenish your health. Oh, f*ck this game, so many nerves lost here.
    4/10 for physics of Rayne's breasts :)

    Pro's: Graphics are great, Awesome animations & moves Con's: Some enemies such as bosses are too damn hard, No direct saving Pro's: Graphics are great, Awesome animations & moves Con's: Some enemies such as bosses are too damn hard, No direct saving instead you have to reach a specific checkpoint to save the game, Confusing puzzle games some can't even be solved without a walkthrough.
