E3 was Rayne-ing Blood

BloodRayne: Betrayal’s presence at E3 was a bloody success! 

Kotaku – The developers at Way Forward, veterans of recent 3D remakes and sequels to games like Contra and A Boy and His Blob are turning BloodRayne, a 3D action game series about a sexy lady vampire that launched nine years ago, into a 2D action brawler.

Bitmob – It’s no surprise that a game about vampires has a fair amount of blood, right? So then, is it shocking to hear that BloodRayne: Betrayal received a teen rating? Check out some footage of the game, and I guarantee that you’ll think to yourself, “Wait, what?”

Gamesradar – When it comes to classic videogame characters, it’s hard to imagine the vamped-out BloodRayne ranking high on anyone’s “best of” list. In fact, her biggest claims to fame aren’t game-related at all, but rather two mediocre movies and a topless render that appeared in Playboy Magazine. So, years after whatever luster she once had has faded away, why should you be interested in a brand new outing? Because it’s a brand new take on the character with thousands of hand-drawn frames of animation and gallons upon gallons of gushing gore.

Gaming Union – Back in 2002, video game publisher Majesco brought gamers an over-the-top, bloody game called BloodRayne, which gathered a decent following but quickly fell into obscurity after a mixed reception to the game’s sequel. After seven years since the last entry in the franchise, Majesco is teaming up with developer WayForward to revitalize the series with BloodRayne: Betrayal. And surprisingly enough, it’s one hell of a revival indeed.

1up.com – Big name games always end up getting the majority of the attention during E3. Mario, Uncharted, Battlefield, BioShock, Zelda, Assassin’s Creed — they’re all looking good, if not great, sure. Other titles at the show don’t garner that same degree of attention, and despite what some might think, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re any less deserving of it.

OMGN – During my Majesco booth tour, I got to see two levels of BloodRayne: Betrayal getting played through. Before E3 2011, I wasn’t even fully aware that a BloodRayne game was coming. After having seen a woman in BloodRayne’s outfit (and obviously, this excellent demo), I can now say that BloodRayne: Betrayal is on my to-get list this fall.

Dualshockers – One of the hidden highlights and sure-to-be-sleeper-hits at E3 was Majesco’s revival of the BloodRayne franchise with BloodRayne: Betrayal. Developed by WayForward, Betrayal is a pretty big departure from its origins: it’s now an ultra-violent 2D platform brawler with a strikingly hand-drawn graphical style. And with absolutely solid developers like WayForward behind the wheel, that is most definitely a good thing.

Joystick Division – Chances are you’re already pretty familiar with the BloodRayne franchise. Whether it’s from the previous generation’s action-slicer titles or the masterful cinematic work of film director Uwe Boll, you know you’re dealing with a badass vampire chick who likes to bite necks and lop off heads with her arm-mounted blades.

SFX 360 – My love for BloodRayne is deep in my blood. Rayne and I have a relationship that is both bloody and devious. I spent countless hours playing the first and second Bloodrayne years ago, so when the Bloodrayne: Betrayal was announced not only was I one of the first followers of her on Twitter; I also realized that the time has finally come where she and I will dance in puddles and puddles of blood yet again.
