Updates

May 7th, 2014

Hi everyone,

Just to recap the last week or so we have set 2 updates live since launch, the first to cover an issue with starting the game and just recently an update to address language settings in the game. The game will now pull the appropriate language from your Steam settings.

Both updates are live, if you are continuing to experience problems with your game starting or other issues, please continue to post in the discussions section. We have a pinned discussion thread to go over more serious game issues, appropriately titled "Game Issues" that we will continue to review posts in but we are listening to any and all feedback.

Thank you all for your support, it's been great bringing Rayne back to the Steam Community!

As a long time Bloodrayne fan I have been wanting and waiting to play this game since I first saw it announced for Xbox 360 and PS3 years ago. Not owning any consoles and being a PC gamer I thought I would never get the chance to play the next installment in the Bloodrayne series. So when I logged into Steam today and saw Bloodrayne: Betrayal had finally made it's way to PC at last, it was an instant purchase and I could not be more satisfied. This game is simply fantastic.

The art style is phenomenal and the soundtrack is perfect for the relentless action going down on screen as you mutiliate everything in sight. The game looks beautiful and runs flawlessly without a hiccup. I highly recommend the Xbox 360 controller which also works and performs flawlessly as expected. I think it would be a very difficult game to play with keyboard and mouse and have not even attempted such myself.

The controls themselves are pretty simplistic but seem to have a fair amount of depth to the different special moves and combos that you can perform. The game heavily encourages you to be stylistic and flawless in your execution with a grade scale for each level. It does not pull any punches and will force you to perfect your vampire slaying art, especially in the later stages. Nailing a fluid combination while dodging enemy attacks and dismembering and feeding on every enemy in sight is a thrill to see play out in perfect, gory animated detail.

Rayne looks as sexy and deadly as ever and with Steam Achievements, Trading Cards and solid performance, this appears to be a fantastic PC port of the console version. If you're a fan of 2D side scrolling hack 'n slash-beat 'em ups, Bloodrayne or both, you definitely do not want to miss this game. It's quite possibly the best Bloodrayne game yet and that's coming from a huge fan of the original two Bloodrayne games.

Simply put, this game kicks ♥♥♥! Then cuts off it's limbs and sucks the blood out of the remaining torso before carelessly tossing it aside to move onto the next victim. Rayne herself would be proud. Highly Recommended!

Above is my video impression of the game.

Blood Rayne Betrayal is a great 2D beat'm up. It's a huge departure from it's original series, but for all the right reasons. The action is precise, responsive, and deep. You can button mash, but it will only take you so far. At a certain point of the game, it becomes a lot more demanding, and knowing your move set properly will be required. The game looks gorgeous, and the soundtrack compliment the action. A strong entry to the brawler genre.

Positives:
- Fast, responsive combat.
- Unique "all offense" mechanics.
- Very good looking.
- Great soundtrack.
- Explodes with badassery.

Negatives:
- The menu looks generic.
- Might be too hard for some.

I never played this on console but I just bought it today and so far I am really LOVING IT! I love a good 2-D hack & slash game and BloodRayne Betrayal really does rock when it comes to this genre.

I'm only an hour or two into the game so I can't write a full-fledged review on it yet but I imagine that I am going to be wanting more once I finish the game, it's just damn good (the music is awesome, there's lot of GORE! and who doesn't like plenty of gore? a wide variety of moves to deal damage to your enemies, bloodsucking vampire goodness (and not that baby vampire crap either!).

Probably obvious but worth noting for fans of the original BloodRayne games, this is a major departure in both gameplay and tone from the first and second in the series. That much is clear enough from the store description, but I'll say this: Learn your combos.

This was originally released for consoles some years ago, so a controller is the best fit for this title. I highly recommend this game for (as others have noted) an inspired and modern take on the Castlevania genre - there's a sharp learning curve to successful runs, but it's well worth it.

As a bonus, you can check out the full soundtrack by Jake Kaufman here for free. It alone justifies the price of admission!

Far away from the teenage romance novels and goofy Dracula renditions that have come to be associated with vampires, Bloodrayne explores a darker take on the age old monsters, its titular femme fatale being something of a female counterpart to Van Helsing out to rid the world of the demons that threaten to destroy it. Betrayal from WayForward acts as a departure from prior games in the series and stands as a rather polarizing title from every angle; as instantly dismissible as it is alluring.

I won’t get into any story details because it’s entirely forgettable and even the little emphasis placed on it is more than it deserves, but in essence you are Rayne called in to deal with a demon infestation that’s been terrorizing the local towns people. That’s about all the story I needed and could have done without the melodramatic text bubbles, but as it stands it allows for a lot of people to die by your hand, which is ultimately the entire point of the game.

Betrayal is structured like a typical side scrolling brawler. You move from screen to screen clearing out hoards of monsters, taking part in occasional platforming segments or a larger than life boss fight. You have a modest but well rounded collection of moves, with nice touches like sucking blood from enemies to restore health or Rayne’s trademark pistol add a nice amount of personality to the otherwise routine fights.

On paper, Betrayal has everything in place for an excellent brawler, but when you actually get your hands on it it’s immediately clear that a lot has gone wrong in the translation to an actual game. Most unforgivable, WayForward commits a cardinal sin by constantly locking your character into animations. What this means in practice is combat feels slow and unresponsive, causing you to continually fail because it’s impossible to dodge mid-attack, and getting knocked down leaves you open for more attacks as you’re entirely helpless for a handful of seconds before you pick yourself back up (which as you can imagine creates a circle of falling down and getting kicked to death with no retaliation possible).

Even when you aren’t trapped in a string of animations, controlling Rayne is excessively clunky and unintuitive. Moves require precise inputs to execute, but these are commonly misread or ignored making anything beyond a basic attack unpredictable and more dangerous to attempt with a constant swarm of enemies around you than it’s worth.

What I’m getting at with all of this is Betrayal is a frustrating game; a VERY frustrating game, and one that shouldn’t be anywhere near as difficult as it is. It’s a contrived challenge, the combined result of poor controls, animation lockouts, and checkpoints that are placed almost intentionally to cause you to quit from having to replay huge chunks of a level each time you die (which will be often). It starts off hard and by the end raises the bar to an outrageous degree, to where I was gritting my teeth and praying I’d get through it so the game would finally end.

I wanted to love Betrayal, and for all its flaws I don’t regret playing it and even enjoyed portions of it a great deal, but any recommendation I could give it comes with so many connotations that I find it hard to say with any sincerity that it’s something you should spend your time with. Aside from its slick, hard drawn art style that looks absolutely stunning (especially in the dark, when all you can see are silhouettes against the background), it stumbles all the way from the start and had me questioning if it was really worth continuing with. In the end, I’m still not sure of my answer.
