BloodRayne was one of those games that I absolutely loved on my PS2. I played both of them and even though the second wasn’t as good as the first, I still enjoyed both of them. Don’t get me started about the movie though. Seriously, WTF was going on in that movie? Video game movies, am I right? Anyway, when this was free for PS+, I figured that even though it was different that I would give it a try because I was still in need of some new games and it was BloodRayne.
Instead of making a proper third game in the franchise, fans of the game were stuck with this 2D side scrolling game as the last adventure for Rayne. This hack and slash game has fifteen different levels to offer, if you can even get through the first level, and is supposed to be about Rayne, who is basically shunned from the Vampire community for being half human half vampire, stopping some kind of evil after she is recruited by the Brimstone Society one last time.
What a piece of crap this game is. I try not to say that a lot because it’s just not my style, but seriously what a piece of absolute crap. The game not only felt half-assed, but it also felt like the developers couldn’t design a game for the PS3 after having their franchise on the PS2. How to do you go from having a full fledged normal game to a 2D hack and slash game? Not to mention that the difficultly level on this game is just insane. It’s so hard, even on the easiest setting that I couldn’t get through the first level. There are an insane amount of enemies and the whole game is just crazy.
As you can see from the picture above I was only able to get 1 trophy out of 12. This was super surprising. I’m sure it was purely luck based that I even got the 1 trophy that I did which was for killing one enemy with one gun shot. I will say that at least I’m not the only one who is lacking when it comes to trophies for this game because all of the trophies are rare, very rare, and ultra rare. At least it’s not just me.
Probability of this game getting played again…0 out of 5.
This game is horrible and just about everyone who has played this game knows it. Everything about the game from the difficultly to the wonky controls make this game one of those controller breaking games. I’m not even going to say that I would give this game another chance and possibly play if there was nothing left to play. If there was a time where there was nothing left to play but this game, I would give up being a gamer.
Now it’s your turn. Did you hate the game? Please tell me that you also hated the game and thought it was such a disservice to the franchise as a whole. If you loved the game, tell me why and what you thought made this game so great. Now for next week, you probably already guessed it because it’s another free PS+ game. This one though, I probably played for 10 minutes before shutting it off and thinking what the hell did I just play. I don’t even remember anything about the game other than I didn’t like it. I’ll let you know why I never finished Outland next week.
