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

Nice art, barely existent animation. The game plays like a budget Castlevania, which sounds great as a concept, but the unbelievably stiff controls keep me from saying the game is "good". Every movement and attack feels stilted and slippery, and as the game throws more and more death traps at you it's not something you adapt to; it's just bad. It's certainly a challenge, but it's much more a test of patience and willingness to put up with frustration than a test of skill or memorization. The soundtrack is pure generic butt rock that's just cheesy enough to be enjoyable, though it could use a few more tracks. Overall Bloodrayne Betrayal is forgettable aside from the fact that I somehow powered my way through it. Don't bother unless you've mastered the hundreds of better platformers that are available and you kind of hate yourself.

This is a game you'll either love or hate. I, I rather hate it.

- Cool art style
- Gore
- Blood sucking
- Enemy variety is ok
- Boss fights are kinda cool

Yea. That's about it.

- No difficulty setting
- Bad controls
- No story
- Boring gameplay
- Platforming is extremely annoying
- Not much original content
- Insta deaths

This game is only 10 dollars, so for that price I can kinda almost recommend it, but I won't, because I feel it's an extremely lazy attempt at a video game. The start of the game feels ok, the combat is more or less enjoyable at first, but after the first few levels it gets extremely repetitive. You will be presented with quite a few different enemies over the course of the game, some of them bosses. Those fights are somewhat cool, though you can feel overwhelmed by what is going on on the screen at first. You literally only have 2 attacks. Press X for melee combos and RT for a gun shot. You have limited ammo, but there are usually enough drops. You can also bite other vampires and either suck their blood for health (which I found extremely necessary and which makes you invulnerable for the duration) or infect them and detonate them with Y. That's about all you get with the combat. You can also jump and dash through most attacks, which is also required to survive.

Let's just say this game is not for casuals. I'm not bad at brawlers, but this one is just boring, because all combos are simply "press x". You can vary things up with the direction pad, but that's it. And at times you even need to to solve a "puzzle" (juggle an enemy and launch him into a grinder for example). I find it extremely boring. What's worse is that you can't dash out of a combo, meaning you mash the x button to kill enemies, but you can easily get hit by another attack, because your character does not accept the dash command while hitting someone, instead of cancelling the attack or transitioning to the dash action. Combine this with the fact that you fall to the ground when you get hit and that you can die really easily once you're on the ground since there does not seem to be any "quick get up" mechanic (or I've missed it) and you can quickly lose a battle against multiple foes.

The save points are also weirdly positioned. Often they are ok, but sometimes you have to complete a difficult fight and then complete an even more difficult platforming section or the other way around. And when you die, it's back to last checkpoint. That can be quite frustrating. That being said I am not at level 12 or 13 (of 15 I think), so you will get through sooner or later if you're not a hopeless case, but the amount of unncecessary frustration is high.

Platforming: Whoever designed the controls for this game needs to be punished. They are unprecise and the required backflip is executed by first running in one direction, quickly turning and pressing the jump button. This is infuriating throughout the game, because not only do you need some space to do this properly, you also need to judge where you will land. It is even a required mechanic during a boss fight, which can screw you over hard. You can also wall jump and dash in midair.
Later on there is also Flappy Bird in the game. Great. Just what I was looking for.
Oh and let's not forget the poison. The ♥♥♥♥ing poison, which kills you instantly and sends you back several minutes.

The art style looks pretty at first, but it gets so boring after a while, because you're only in this one big castle, going down, then up, then down again...the setting never really changes.

The story is presented in boring chat bubbles in game...the little there is of it. Meh. Forgettable. You can't skip that ♥♥♥♥ either, so if you die at some point it can happen that you have to watch the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ "cutscenes" over and over again.

How one is supposed to get a good score in the game is beyond me. It rates you at the end of the level. I have never even come close to even getting one extra point for time or health. I dunno. I'm apparently just "worm chow", yet worm chow can apparently beat the game. Meh.

There are also skulls to collect. You can upgrade health or ammo with them. Most of them I didn't even find, some I didn't try to reach, because the risk reward system is severely misjudged.

Conclusion: If you love Bloodrayne and 2D Brawlers and want a quick fix you may want to get this. Everyone else should stay's not expensive, but it's also not very good.

Controls are not responsive, it takes all the fun, I can't play like I'd play any other Hack'n Slash game. Like, if you want to drain blood(which you will want most), most of time you either will be countered cause you're too late or you will poison them because you're smashing B button for the right time.

Combat mechanics are really poor, you have one attack button, you have gun but you can't use it in mid-battle since controls doesn't respond that fast, you can't dodge when enemy draws his weapon for the same reason, all left is hearing our cute Blooadrayne's arousing "Aaah, Ooh" cries. Combat is really annoying.

Game is no fun. Just play Shank 1 and 2. Maybe Onikira too.

Pros: Good art style. music is ok, despite the same track playing over and over again
presentation is decent enough for a middle market game... and that's about it

Cons: Samey environments; the first five levels are in what seems to be in a castle
Gameplay is EXTREMELY repetitive even for what it is. Level design is ♥♥♥♥ poor, the scoring system doesn't make any sense (how is it that i can get a f on one level and make sure i do well and play like crap on another and get a c?)
Enemy types are too repeated new enemies are added but by the time they do you've lost interest. Bloodrayne as a character is cool and she's overdue for a new proper game. But not like this. If you like these kinds of games (which i do btw), and don't mind the awkward jumping mechanics, the lack of a duck feature (because you know how much dhampirs can't duck) the pointless bird sections of the game and the difficulty of the game and the lack of options.. then yeah get it.. for cheap because it's not worth 10 dollars. i paid 2 for it and that was fair. By and large it's not horrible or broken, but too mediocre to matter.

I wanted to like this game. I really did. I loved BR 1 and 2, but this... As everyone else who reviewed this game has said the art style is cool, combat LOOKS great, but there are literally 4 enemies by chapter 6, it's Dark Souls levels of hard, and super repetitive and button mashy, and controls are imprecise and hard to handle.

In conclusion whoever decided that down on the thumbstick didn't make you crouch needs to have their fingers cut off so they can never code another game...

You let me down, WayForward...
