Its not that exciting and overlong (even though its a short game).
Its alright, just lacking in variety. Primarily a combat exploration game, but the combat is weak and the environments a bit dull.
You can't help but like the lead character (who doesn't like a scantily clad vampire chick?) but the voice acting is woeful throughout to its detriment, so bad its not even funny.
Not sure if I should tackle its sequel or take a break with something else, but its at least partially satisfied my curiosity. I've been meaning to play these since the first film came out.
Yeah I thought it was quite average but who could get bored of shooting up enemies and hacking off heads in slow-mo? Honestly, it was great with a machinegun because you can run rings around an enemy and watch each bullet hit. It does get a bit repetitive and there are some frustrating sections as well as bosses but I enjoyed Blood Rayne a lot.
The sequel is even better. It feels familar and yet the combat is all overhauled with lots of new gameplay elements and far more interaction with the scenery. It's a great sequel because anybody who played the original can jump straight in and yet there's enough new bits to warrant its existence. Obviously it's not the best game in the world but its well worth checking out.
