BloodRayne: Betrayal

 

BloodRayne is best categorized as one of those series of games that fell through the cracks. Neither praised nor lambasted by critics and never selling above average, it didn't manage to make much of a name for itself despite the allure of having a...

BloodRayne: Betrayal is a game that looks better than it plays. The silky-smooth 2D sprites can’t make up for frustrating controls and its platforming emphasis with said controls is equally irksome. Gamers hungry for a challenging title might enjoy it,...

Creating old-school, 2D side-scrollers is nothing new for developer WayForward Technologies (A Boy and His Blob, Contra 4, Batman: The Brave and the Bold), and with BloodRayne: Betrayal, the team has created one of their best yet.

BloodRayne: Betrayal Review

 

BloodRayne: Betrayal plays like an old-school Castlevania game from the NES and SNES days. And you know what that means? It's awesome.

One thing concerns me about BloodRayne: Betrayal. Many gamers won’t give it a chance because of the BloodRayne moniker associated with it. But it would be a mistake to ignore a game like this. Betrayal isn’t for everyone, but for classic gamers looking...

There's a fine line between playing homage and being a complete and utter rip-off. BloodRayne: Betrayal is the latter. It borrows heavily from classic Castlevania games, especially Rondo of Blood and Dracula's Curse. And yet, instead of being repulsed...

If you're a fan of classic Castlevania games and are looking for a good (but fair) challenge, look no further than BloodRayne: Betrayal. Even if you feel duped by the past games (and movies), this new 2D action game packs more moves than you'll know...

Our thoughts on Bloodrayne: Betrayal are here.

Vampires are trendy, cool, the in thing. They're the best undead friend a guy or gal could ever wish for, apart from maybe a zombie. Ghouls get lost, wraiths take a hike, skeletons just don't ever come back.

Half vampire, half incredibly frustrating platformer.

Fluid animations, appropriately bloody combat, frustratingly difficult

Imprecise controls, slippery platforming, frustratingly dif

BloodRayne: Betrayal

 

Bloodrayne hasn't had a good track record, with lack luster past entries and three terrible Uwe Boll movies. I didn't know Bloodrayne Betrayal

In the end Bloodrayne Betrayal is competent game that has some really good qualities, yet these are completely overshadowed by some striking flaws that should have been ironed out by 2011. If you are a gluten for punishment, like a challenge or have a...

I will admit that I was one of the people who really enjoyed the original BloodRayne games. They were cheesy and not the best action games, but I did find them enjoyable. With so many years passed...

Gorgeous visuals ; Boss battles ; Satisfying combat

Punishing in later levels ; Backgrounds can be bland ; Controls too lose for precision platforming

I will admit that I was one of the people who really enjoyed the original BloodRayne games. They were cheesy and not the best action games, but I did find them enjoyable. With so many years passed, you may be wondering why anyone would bother to...

BloodRayne: Betrayal Review

 

Finicky controls taint the exciting combat in BloodRayne: Betrayal, creating an uneven and frustrating adventure.

Making enemies explode is fun ; Striving for high scores is satisfying

Major control issues hound you in combat ; Painful platforming sequences ; Difficulty spikes quickly halt your progress

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...

Review: BloodRayne Betrayal is Bizarro Devil May Cry

 

A tough-but-fair 2D sidescroller from Wayforward ends up being the best Bloodrayne game.

BloodRayne: Betrayal is a game from a parallel universe -- one where 3D games never took off and 2D action games continued to reign supreme. It's not surprising that such a game would come from WayForward, a developer that's proved their 2D chops again...
