Not too long ago I was talking to someone about BloodRayne and they had never heard of if! How can someone not know about this ass kicking vampire video game? Madness! So today I am going to educate you guys on one of my all time favorite video games, Bloodrayne.
BloodRayne was developed by Terminal Reality and it is a horror-themed third-person action video game that came out October 15, 2002 for Nintendo, GameCube, PlayStation 2 and Xbox. Later a PC version was released but it sucked so bad we’ll just pretend it never existed. The game stars Rayne, the half human, half vampire dhampir who oozes sex appeal, ruthless charm and cockiness.
There are two Bloodrayne games. The first game is about Rayne being taken in by an underground organization calling themselves the Brimstone Society – a top-secret fraternity that hunts down and destroys supernatural threats. They discover her hunting down vampires in search of her vampire father who raped and murdered her mother. In the years between the World Wars, Rayne works as a killing machine for the Brimstone Society. Two missions, five years apart, turn out to be connected by one man. For years, this man has been searching the world for powerful occult artifacts to bring Germany into a new age of domination. Rayne must face this man’s elite Nazi army to prevent them from releasing creatures of unfathomable terror onto the world in their unwavering quest for the artifacts.
This incredibly gory and sexy first game was loads of fun, the lines from the game are hilarious and often perverse. The gameplay itself was ok; it was decent but not the best. The gameplay in Bloodrayne 2 was MUCH better! Like a million times so. Not only was fighting smoother but you also got some badass weaponry and powers. I am tempted to tell you guys to skip the first game and move onto the second one, that’s how much I think the second is better than the first. On that note we’ll move on to the second game…
Bloodrayne 2 was a huge step up from the first game. The graphics were better, the powers rocked, the levels were more interesting (the zoo level is my fave), camera angles didn’t suck and overall gameplay went way smoother. Oh and they added in costumes codes that let you pick Rayne’s outfit… like sexy catholic school girl, oh yea. On that topic, the cheat codes are great too if you choose to use them. There are codes that make you death proof, a code that makes even more blood and gore (who knew that was possible) and even a code that… uh, makes her boobs bouncier. This time the plot isn’t about Nazis but instead about hunting down her evil family members and destroying them. The game rocked.
I was hoping for a third game but one was never released. There were loads of rumors, and still are, but so far there is no sign of a third game. As for the movies that are based on these games… horrible. I have yet to meet a Bloodrayne game fan that liked the movies.
So if you guys are looking for a gory, sexy, super violent game full of dirty and twisted humor you should check these games out.
Here is the intro in the first game…
