"A stylised side-scrolling brawler perhaps best played with a controller. Visceral with fast-paced, dodge-reliant combat."

Turns into Flappy Bird halfway through. Murdered a vampire lady with the power of bird sonic waves.

You cannot turn blood off in this game.

Therefore you will have to watch blood being spilt forever. The blood of your enemies dripping down your monitor over, and over. You cannot run away from blood.

With the artwork it has, this is effectively BloodRayne The Anime. And for some reason, it works so well to the point it might be even better than the actual BloodRayne games that came out years ago. BloodRayne Betrayal is not for the casual gamer, with its all balls-out approach to platform difficulty, you would have a frustrating time just trying to get a better score in each level and the action comes fast and hard. Very quickly, to the point that Dark Souls almost looks kind in some respect. This is truly a homage to the platform games of old like Castlevania, which seems to be the main inspiration here.

The soundtrack is lovely. There's no voice-acting but the music is exciting and really gets you pumping as you get killing through each level of the game. Graphics are nice and controls seem to work fine. Fine, but not a 100% perfect. BloodRayne looks hot, as usual and she has all kinds of ways to kill the numerous types of enemies that come her way. There's not much of a story here which probably won't do much anyway as you'll be literally killing non-stop.

If you're one for the difficult platform games of old, then this would be a good buy. If you're not the type that can withstand the frustration of getting hit and killed over and over again, then stay away at all cost. It'll take everything from your hand-eye coordination and memory of combos to get the work done.

Great combat and level design. solid mechanics. fantastic OST. the only problem i had was on chapter 15 with the pulsing overlay making it hard to see what exactly was going on without dying to it first. making the entire chapter a nightmare. very solid otherwise.

I never could imagine that I could like anime-like Bloodrayne, but here I am! It's very funny game and its achievements are really hard-to-get! Controls are good and if you don't like the music you can turn it off and use something of your own collection. Just forget about 1st and 2nd games, don't think about what's going on and enjoy!

AWESOME!!! If you took Caslevania SOTN, removed ALucard, & put the devils daughter in it instead, you'd get something like this game, pictures on the store page can't show you how cool this is... Plays great with an X360 pad... If you like button twitchy "beat'um ups', or platform games, you'll SURELY like this!!!

9/10
Great mix of fast and slow attacks, making for some great combat.
Soundtrack is amazing, bosses are properly difficult, and secrets and puzzles are good.
Ooooh, and the final level is riddled with terrible game design (kinda rushed, maybe? Seems that way). So, a point off for that.

Definitely worth a 10$ purchase, though.

I really liked this game. Wayforward did a good job on having cool sprites going all over the place. As others have said, the story is forgetable. But for what it tries to be I think it is successful.

There are some parts in the game that are way too hard to get past though and the controls are a bit wonky for some things with the 360 controller I was using.

I think it is worth picking up during a steam sale though.

-Rayne

Minuses:

The atmosphere, music, style etc all are A+. I could not wait to play, and enjoyed the first half of the game.

Now for the bad. The game eats inputs. For a platforming game that eats your jump inputs when holding right half the time is unacceptable and becomes completely unplayable towards the end of the game when timing multiple jumps becomes necessary to complete the level. For the first half missing a jump isnt the end of the world, but still can be frustrating.

Second major issue is hitbox detection. Getting hit by things not touching your characters image, being able to stand half into spinning saws without being hurt, falling through platforms that you jump on, or even taking spike damage from the top edge of the platform, but not the spike part you can jump off of...

Third some of the abilities/moves not intuitive. The game also does not say a controller is recommended. I would argue its STRONGLY recommended. I may purchase on psn to see if using a controller solves this. Now doing a high jump involves running, releasing ALL keys, then pushing jump, but only if Rayne is sliding, if she just comes to a stop she will only do a regular jump. This mechanic is balls.

Lastly, I love the concept, music and its fun once you get used to the controls even on keyboard. It pains me to not recommend the game, but with the game eating your jump command, and it being necessary to do many timed jumps in succession to complete some levels, I just cant in good faith tell people to pay money for this. If they patch the game I could see this being a thumbs up, 9/10 or 10/10 Please buy now review.

Last time I had a huge love/hate relationship with a game was Super Meat Boy. This game is like Super Meat Boy in the sense that you will die over and over again untill you get the platforming aspect of it down packed. But once you do it feels so good and rewarding. The same thing can be said about the combat. Once you have it down packed you will be mowing down enemies and never getting hit once. Great game but hard as ♥♥♥♥ at times. lol.

First: It is not the Rayne I was waiting for.
Sadly only a hack&slay game. A solid one. With damn tricky jump courses. And bad boss battles.
As a simple hack and slay game it will work. With a low upgrading mechanic and some hard battles. But as a Bloodrayne game? I'm afraid no. And I dislike the cartoonish style. It fits the game, sure. It is perfect for it, but not my kind of stuff here.
The dislike is only for the bad use of the "Bloodrayne" licence.
If you like hack and slay games, you can try it.

Hot vampire chick slashing & shooting her way through a mansion. Gorgeous 2D visuals, great controls, feels great with a high challenge. Only drawback is that the game is short, but leaderboards and a rating after each level and the fun combat and excellent boss battles give this game plenty of replay value. Good price too, I recomend this game to fans of 2D brawlers & platformers.

The controls feel awkward, which is a deal breaker for me. Controls should have fluid feel. Also, the mild flaws in the artwork could easily be ignored if this game were enjoyable to play.

Terrible Jumping system, necessary to get damn near anywhere in the game. ♥♥♥♥ed me off so much I couldn't be bothered to play further.
Combat itself is mediocre.
And from what I could tell the story is generic vampire story.

It’s got gorgeous comic-style artwork. Except for the main character, I feel her look could use a little more attention. Combat Game play is a little repetitive, but that fits in with the old-school style platformers. Why does a backwards jump give you more air and distance?

Flappy Bird Side Quest!!!

I wouldn't recommend it at full price. I was bored with it after a couple of hours.

Graphics: 8/10
Music: Passable 6-7/10
Fight Mechanics: Awesome 9/10
Controls: 3/10

The lack of double jump and limiting the wall jump/slide to specific surfaces makes this game infuriating. Too often I will replay the same section ad nauseum just because I lack the ability to perfectly time a backflip. Love the look, sound and feel. Fix the jumping and 8/10 5 star
