Storyline

The game begins in 1933, in a place where it appears that the people believe in vampires, as all the doors and windows show crosses. It shows a man and woman running down a street. The woman trips, and the man pauses long enough to help her up, only to be dragged into a dark alleyway by a chain. His head is thrown from an alley at the woman's feet, with Rayne walking calmly up to the woman. The woman seemingly breaks down crying, but in fact only hides her face to reveal she is in fact a vampire. After a brief fight, Rayne decapitates her and then takes off before a small army of vampires tries to catch her off guard. She drops a grenade on their position as she leaves. On top of the buildings, two mysterious men, who were watching the events unfold the whole time, are discussing their reason for being here. One reveals they are here to recruit Rayne, who is trying to find where her father is. The other member does not want a Dhampir with the Brimstone society, regardless of the fact ...

Cleavage.
31 October 2004 | by ImperatorHazelSee all my reviews

Cleavage n. (kleevij) 1. The act of splitting or cleaving. 2. The hollow between a woman's breasts, especially as revealed by a low neckline.

This is the only word which can accurately describe all that is Bloodrayne, from its excessive gore and blood to the amount of "money shots" given throughout the game. There is slicing and dicing as well as jiggling and giggling. This game epitomizes what a stereotypical heterosexual male wants: lots of guns, gore, grime and girls. Don't ask me why I picked it up, but I'm glad I did. Amid all the endless bloodshed, there's a plot to behold [though this is normally overlooked by most of the game's male players.]

Rayne is not your average vampire, no, no... She is a DHAMPIR; a melding of the best qualities of both vampire odsuckage, ownage, and sexage] and human [resistance to sunlight, resistance to water, sexage] parents. She is charged by the BRIMSTONE SOCIETY [some people in awful black hoods, very unstylish] to stop some Nazi bastards from destroying the world by reawakening Beliar [who is, apparently, the original devil. Or something.] Sexy vampiress killing nazi bastards; what more could you want?

Gameplay is so-so, once you get over the "What is up with this controller?!" syndrome [also instilled by games such as Resident Evil.] The L and R buttons are mostly used, A of course, both joysticks [C and main], and B if you don't want to die anytime soon. They keypad and Y button are also used for special abilities, which I will explain later.

You can control the camera angles to a certain extent, it doesn't swing around to give you a better view of the chandelier or the candles or whatever. It's a straightforward, playable-character-in-the-center look-up-and-down layout. The screen has two tables in it, a picture of Rayne with a blood-colored health bar which you can refill by drinking the blood of the Nazis. If you kill enough people, the other table fills up and you can enact bloodrage, which, and I quote, "increases dismemberment." The keypad changes the view to a slow-mo, a close-up, and then a bluish screen which shows where your objective is and where the Nazi bastards are. The only one which is really helpful is the last one, and once in a while the first. Who snipes when you can just go up and chop their heads off?

The graphics are also mediocre. It's no Resident Evil or Super Smash Brother Melee [nor a Wind Waker, either,] but you can tell what things are. The blood is fairly realistic as well. Terminal Reality uses the technique of Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers: moderately crappy graphics most of the time, but with movie quality scenes in between. The bodies of the characters are fairly rounded, but the faces look like Ocarina of Time [i.e. very flat and expressionless.] But the costumes look good, so I'll overlook it.

Cheats. Let me tell you. Oh my god cheats. Cheats everywhere. They give you a list of cheats. Arrange the words in the correct order [such as dontfartonoscar and triassasindontdie] and you will be able to beat the game without watching how much blood Rayne shoots out of her body [and shoots out of other people's bodies.] There are also little messages the creators left for us players. Don't we feel special. Anyway, if you're a lying, scheming, bastard cheater who can't play this game for the life of them [such as myself,] these cheats are very well-known and readily available to use. I suggest the two I mentioned if you really want to blaze through the game with blades and bullets. Alliteration aside, the cheats are useful and funny.

The most awesome part of Bloodrayne is the fact that when you kill someone/thing, the corpse stays there. It's an incredibly helpful marker in the mazelike levels presented in the second and third parts. See blood on the walls? Turn around, you've been there before. Some Nazis running around? Must be a new room! Speaking of mazelike levels, there are parts where you just aimlessly wander around, completely confused and bewildered as to where the f*** to go next. After a few minutes of exasperation, you'll know where to go. Or you can cheat.

Overall, it's a good game to get. It plays into that whole Nazi mysticism [wtf?] which also dominates Hellboy. There's also very sexy Germans and one very sexy vampiress running around. Much cleavage, as well. Again, what more could you ask?
