BloodRayne: Betrayal

Has anyone played this game. I just recently found out about by browsing Xbox Live (been awhile since I logged on). I was wondering what you guys think about it. From the trial it seems like it's pretty fun and the music to the game sort of reminds of me of Castlevania. I'm thinking of getting the full game.

For those of you who havent heard of it. It's a 2D hack and slash game.

From what I played it's mostly action. It does not seem like you backtrack and collect items or go through paths that were blocked like a Metroidvania.

This looks like a lot of fun. Reminds me of Symphony of the Night a little bit. Some of the reviews I read were unforgiving, but I still plan on giving it a shot.

It's actually supposed to be like the original, pre-SOTN Castlevanias.

I kinda want it. I've been eying it on PSN, but haven't jumped yet.

What??

The introduction sort of reminds of SOTN. Like how you start off walking around the forest and walk into the castle.

I kinda liked the demo was the back flip felt awkward to perform which wouldn't be a problem if they didn't make it an important part of the gameplay.

I agree the backflip is werid. It took me a little time to understand how to do it.

I meant that it's not a Metroidvania with exploration and backtracking-based gameplay. The gameplay more closely matches older, more linear Castlevanias.
