Editors' reviewDespite impressive graphics, energizing techno music, and outstanding sound effects, the shockingly violent BloodRayne is strictly for the strong of stomach. You control a blade-wielding female vampire set loose on a band of WWII Nazis in their Argentinean base. As you slice and dice your hapless opponents, they fall with screams of agony and fountains of gore. That s your cue to replenish your health by jumping on the dying soldiers, wrapping your legs around their waist and sucking their blood, moaning with pleasure all the while. BloodRayne is a feast (literally) of sexualized violence that makes Kill Bill look like The Sound of Music. The 168MB demo lets you play through one level, which should be enough to get a feel for the game. Obviously, not for children.
Set in the late 1930s, BloodRayne introduces the sexy, huntress BloodRayne. An unholy union of human and vampire, BloodRayne was raised and trained by a secret government agency to hunt down and eliminate supernatural threats. Now she must take on an occult faction of Nazis to prevent them from unleashing creatures of unfathomable terror in their quest for world domination.
BloodRayne's lethal repertoire includes inhuman strength, spectacular leaping and acrobatic skills, aura vision, zoom vision, and slow-motion perception that enables her to weave in and out of the path of bullets. She maintains her health by feeding off the blood of other creatures. In addition, blade combat drives her into "Blood Rage," where she achieves a new set of unstoppable fighting combos and deadly attacks.
This playable demo features one full level from BloodRayne's Argentinean sub-bay area.
