    A refreshing dip in the old-school.

    Rated on February 18, 2012 by Conjuration

    I am a player who is completely unfamiliar with the Bloodrayne franchise before this game. I'm a total newcomer to the brand, but I'm not going anywhere now. This game has a great artistic style a...

    My 1st impressions with BloodRayne Betrayal. A challenging game with great visuals and music.

    Rated on January 04, 2013 by LOSTLEAD8R

    When I first saw Wayforward was making BloodRayne: Betrayal, I was ecstatic. Betrayal was looking to be like a Castlevania game, but with a badass female as the lead character. I really don't know muc...

    Casual players need not apply. This game will challenge you and it will take many retries. Must try the demo!

    Rated on February 08, 2013 by js369

    This game is great for adults who seek out the challenge that they don't get from casual games who are made to please everyone. Controls need timing and even then its not 100% certain that your not go...

    This game is made for fans of Castlevania, Megaman Zero, and Devil May Cry. It feels like a sleek retro DMC in 2D

    This game is made for fans of Castlevania and Devil May Cry or Megaman Zero, and that's the intended audience. So anyone not acquainted with or a fan of CV will find this game's platforming /enemy pla...

    Great potential, yet lacks polish and most importantly not for everyone.

    Before we begin, Bloodrayne: Betrayal, unlike previous installments, is a 2D sidescroller action/platformer. That being said, the game tries to give the same feeling of the old school games through a ...

    Fighting and platforming is hard, but Rayne is still great fun despite the changes to her appearance and game style.

    Rated on September 09, 2011 by LemonSquiggle

    Okay, so let's get the comparisons with the previous games out of the way first, shall we? This is a platform game rendered to look like a comic book, and yes plenty of blood gets thrown about. Yes, s...

    This stylish 2D action platformer is brutal, but satisfying combat and solid controls make it a fun experience.

    Difficult controls, but a bloody fun waste of time!

    Rated on September 10, 2011 by hickabickabooya

    As mentioned, controls are a pain sometimes, and the timing of moves has to be just right to meet some of the goals (like collecting the power ups hidden through the games). Plus there are areas where...

    This new Bloodrayne is a love letter to classic, tough-as-nails games of yesteryear.

    Rated on September 11, 2011 by IndianaPwns39

    The last time Rayne, the vulgar and scantily clad Dhampir, was seen in the video game world was 2004 with Bloodrayne 2. Perhaps her absence has something to do with the extremely bad movie adaptations...

    It's raining blood. Hallelujah, it's raining blood.

    Rated on September 16, 2011 by JustPlainLucas

    With the growth of XBLA and PSN, we've seen a resurgence of a particular style of game: the 2D old-school side scroller. These digital venues have also allowed franchises that have remained dormant f...
