BloodRayne: Betrayal

2 September 2013
  • Summary: Very few people can claim to love BloodRayne as a franchise, and there's a reason for that. The original titles were critically derided, the series of Uwe Boll movies are particularly grotesque, and the comic books are obscure as Hell. However, when someone's looking for fans of BloodRayne , they need look no further than myself. So, when news of a new BloodRayne game dropped, I was beyond excited.

BloodRayne: Betrayal review

24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: If you’ve been looking forward to a stylish, breezy 2D hack-and-slashing foray into the BloodRayne canon with Betrayal, the new XBLA/PSN release, get ready for a digital bitch-slap. BloodRayne: Betrayal is immensely difficult – so much so that I gave up trying to beat it, and I’ve beaten Hard Corp: Uprising and Demon’s Souls, so I don’t mind difficult games and I don’t give up easily.
  • Pros: Looks luscious, Rewards badassery, Certainly won't fall down for you
  • Cons: Imprecise controls, Unreasonable challenges, Some terrible checkpoints

BloodRayne: Betrayal

The Gamers Temple
7 November 2011
  • Excerpt: It's been a few years since BloodRayne has made an appearance in a game, and the half-human, half-vampire dhamphyr won't be too familiar to those who knew her before. BloodRayne is no longer hunting down Nazis in a 3D world, and is instead taking on legions of clones who look like they would be at home in a Jane Austen movie in a side-scrolling 2D brawler.

  • Conclusion: And we're not even going to go into the whole thing with the bulbous penis monsters and the flying tampons/blood/menstruation angle.

  • Excerpt: In recent years, the Twilight films have given a sort of re-birth to vampires in media. Sure, they might not be the best portrayal of vampires. They are angsty and instead of exploding into flames when they walk into the sun, they glitter.

Review: BloodRayne: Betrayal (360/PS3)

12 September 2011
  • Excerpt: In spite of its stodgy controls and repetitive enemies, BloodRayne: Betrayal's ferocious leading lady and vampiric virtues remain a devilish delight.
  • Pros: Innovative combat system utilizes vampirism well; gorgeous graphics and a catchy soundtrack; Rayne is a joy to see in action; mercifully brief load times.

BloodRayne: Betrayal

8 September 2011
  • Conclusion: With practice and determination, you can come to grips with the cumbersome controls. And once you overcome the handicaps, Betrayal can be a lot of fun. Each of the 15 levels tracks your score, and though you can squeak by with an F rating your first time through, going back to raise that to a respectable level gives the game plenty of replay value. But it's just not worth sinking hours into Betrayal to uncloak that saving light.
  • Pros: Making enemies explode is fun, Striving for high scores is satisfying.
  • Cons: Major control issues hound you in combat, Painful platforming sequences, Difficulty spikes quickly halt your progress.

Expert Review

8 September 2011
  • Summary: Dhampirs are notoriously difficult to control. Born of the unholy union of vampire and human, these half-breeds drink the blood of the living, change into winged beasts, and live to a preposterously old age. They aren't exactly known for compromising, and in BloodRayne: Betrayal, this stubbornness manifests in the obstinate manner in which the main character moves.
  • Pros: Making enemies explode is fun, Striving for high scores is satisfying
  • Cons: Major control issues hound you in combat, Painful platforming sequences, Difficulty spikes quickly halt your progress
