BloodRayne: Terminal Cut

BloodRayne: Terminal Cut

The “Don’t Escape Trilogy” is a collection of three short first-person point-and-click adventures with static screens (no camera movement, no scrolling). The games share a creepy atmosphere and a few gameplay mechanics, but are otherwise unrelated. In the first game, you play a werewolf trying to lock himself away before a full-moon night, so that he won’t kill anyone when he turns. In the second game, you’re trying to barricade a house and protect yourself from a zombie horde. In the third game, you’re the only surviving crew member on a spaceship and need to stop “something” from getting out.

Even though the entire trilogy is available for free on Armor Games, I chose to purchase this game series on Steam because that’s how amazing ScriptWelder really is. The Deep Sleep and Don’t Escape series were some of the first PC games I ever played, and I have ScriptWelder to thank for making my early experiences so magical. I have followed each and every game you have published on AG, hunted down every achievement, set of choices, and walkthrough I could find… simply, because every single second I spent in any of your games was one of either awe, wonder, fear, or curiosity.

BloodRayne 2: Terminal Cut

BloodRayne 2: Terminal Cut

So Bloodrayne 2 has the distinction of being one of my most beloved, yet absolutely hated games, out of all the games I have ever played before. Never has a single game left me completely divided on how I felt after playing it. Even as I was playing this Terminal Cut, in full, for the first time, I kept thinking “I can’t review this.”

So the good first. BR2 in a nutshell, is a modified BR1, but with everything cranked up to 11. So many new features and ideas are brought to this very creative sequel. Feeding fatalities, gymnastic platforming, environmental death traps, new characters, tons of voice work, tons of powers, tons of costumes, tons of BLOOD. It’s wild just how much of an upgrade BR2 is compared to its original.

If the first BloodRayne is like an easier Max Payne that’s not well-made but still delivers fun and some cheap thrills, then BloodRayne 2 is like a Devil May Cry that does not understand what makes Devil May Cry great. Also BloodRayne 2 itself is not fun, and it doesn’t even deliver cheap thrills.


The first BloodRayne was not a well-made game. Animations were janky, damage feedback was poor, environments were boring, and the final boss was frankly terrible and became downright impossible to defeat if you took too long. However, if you could forgive those faults, what you would find in this game was the experience of becoming a frantic, unstoppable, killing machine. You could be like Max Payne on steroids. It’s no exaggeration that you could essentially dance around your enemies whilst attacking, whether you’re firing your guns or attacking with Rayne’s sick arm blades. You became a frenzied speed demon of death. Also, to add more to the Max Payne comparisons, you have a Dilated Mode which is essentially infinite Bullet Time, so yeah.

Better graphics, better audio, more platforming, better story with a more interesting cast of characters alongside more detailed interactive levels with puzzles. Gameplay has a more in-depth combat system with lock-on mode for blocking & maneuvering, a new combo system for melee/ranged, new useful powers for use once unlocked, just one gun but different firing modes while being give take once your out of ammo (health for ammo; yours or theirs) and melee/ranged has their own simple upgrades after using your guns a lot (more ammo reserves) or brutalizing enemies enough (new combos) lastly feeding gives you a choice of either healing or earning rage but you can do both just don’t expect to earn equal amounts. 3 modes now instead of 4 with Aura mode to spot enemies, Vampire Lairs & objectives; Rage mode for increased combat effectiveness and Dilated Perception for slow-mo. Each mode has a set of other sub abilities to further enhance your combat skill but all use Rage meter. As with the 1st game you get new skills as you progress with the game. Level interactions are a fun new way of dispatching foes permanently with even more destructible objects and lethal hazards to harpoon swing them at to get some health bonus if you succeed. The seldom Vampire lairs are a nice way to restock health and ammo and lastly more platforming segments to shake up the game. You aren’t making ground meat out of Nazis scum and demon spawns anymore as your dealing with different minions of Rayne’s half-relatives to stop them from carrying out their plans for Vampire dominance with a lot more character, personality & motivation then before. Not as much variety as the 1st game’s enemies some new completely new ones though but they have their own unique appearances depending on which half-relative they work for with few exceptions. Boss fights are more varied now requiring you to use different skills to pass but just as enjoyable. Main issues with the game are that cutscenes wont play unless your running the exe in Windows Vista Service Pack 2 compatibility mode, game likes to hang when your in the menu, game is buggy unless your limit the frames like the 1st game, AI difficulty spike is ridiculous, no difficulty selection like the 1st game, some puzzles are fun but some are just plain annoying and unfair not just due to the complexity of the puzzle but also some enemy encounters are rather ridiculous as they expect you to be a master at dealing with any situation against such insane odds like infinite waves of enemies that are a great pain when its the more elite much tougher much quicker foes. In summery a great sequel for the series that’s as brutal as it looks where you better know what your doing with the new mechanics to succeed in a more personal story that’s just as witty, bloody, sassy and sexy as before.

Blood Omen 2: Legacy of Kain

Blood Omen 2: Legacy of Kain

!!important note!!

This game has crashed a hell of a lot on my windows 7 PC; it’s just something to keep in mind.

What I liked about the game

  • Likable characters, like Uma, who are well voice acted.

  • I like how Kain draws blood from his victims.

  • Awesome boss fights.

  • I liked the Victorian/industrial setting of the game, especially at the start. I liked seeing the chimneys and the steam powered or magic powered machines.

  • The puzzles aren’t too head exploding.

I used to have this game for the PS2, very fun, shorter than the other Legacy of Kain games, but fun. Most people seem to ignore it though, and/or dislike it, but that’s mainly because they probably don’t understand it. It is said this game is not necessary to play to understand the Legacy of Kain story. But it actually is significant, if you pay close attention. There are 2 ways to look at it; Kain’s purpose in this game after the first blood omen game, but before Soul Reaver 1. Then what it means after the events of Defiance. So in a manner of speaking, yes, Blood Omen 2 occurs twice, but seen differently after certain events.

It’s a very decent game. A budget game definetely and not a triple A title, but it is the very top of budget games level.

The voice acting is exactly what you expect from a budget title, a very hilarious at times, but it keeps a decent level mostly.

The gameplay is a simple mix of beat’em up and top down shooter (depending on which character you play) with some small RPG enchancements like items and skills.

If you go to it open minded and close an eye to small bad things like clunky AI and sometimes annoying moments when you fall down and die, then you can get around 6 hours of fun arcade like mayhem. Also there the controls are not changeable (but I found them easy to learn and handle).

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

Oh Rats! No I’m serious actually…and bats as well. Just like a bat out of hell Dracula has furry friends in both low and high places. Awaken from an extremely long eternal night and find some nice necks to chomp on. Whip your blood back and forth (Whip it real good). Explore Dracula’s back to the future adventure. Talk about a miserable pile of secrets. You are the prince of darkness! The dragon Dracul! What a terrible night to have a curse.

This is the direct sequel to Lords of Shadow 1, which was one of my favorite Castlevania games. It feels like you are playing a medieval version of God of War. If you liked the GBA/DS SoTN style Metroidvania ones you might not enjoy this one.

I think I need to add this to the “games that most people hated which I actually enjoyed” list. Admittedly, I’m biased because I really dig Castlevania, enjoyed the first Lords of Shadow and Mirror of Fate, and am a sucker for the idea of playing as Dracula himself. But even at its most frustrating moments, Lords of Shadow 2 isn’t nearly as bad as Edge Magazine (which gave it a 4/10) or any of the other mainstream reviews would have you believe.

Bloodsucking awesome stuff:

  • I feel like combat’s speedier and more responsive than it was in the first Lords of Shadow, and there’s less reliance on quicktime events. This might have to do with the fact that I’m just more experienced with the combat system after playing through the first game and Mirror of Fate, but I had a lot of fun beating up some of the bosses, which leads me to the next point…

What a great little platform game! You can see how much I’ve enjoyed by my playing time! It’s very easy to pick up and play and lose a few hours! Graphics and sound are suitably atmospheric and it runs well altogether. It’s fun trying to find all the coins and there is the urge once finishing to play through again on hard or to get more achievements (some are a bit of a grind though). It has cute little trading cards too which are impulsive to attain.

There are a few negative points:

can become very repetitive on one sitting

Real player with 15.6 hrs in game

The game is awful. An obvious bad port of a mobile game.

There is nothing that I could say good about it, but the bad… oh there is a lot that is bad.

*Unresponsive double jump that you have to fight to get to work (yes, I’m using a keyboard)

*Speaking of keyboard. If you don’t use a controller you can’t change your key bindings on the keyboard and are stuck with crap controls.

  • Combat is just button mashing.

  • Enemies in combat will regularly stun lock you. You will have seven enemies beating on you at the same time. All performing combos, and you can’t move, attack, jump or do squat.

Legacy of Kain: Defiance

Short and simple review.

Great game. Truly a masterpiece. Must-have classic. Story-driven and atmospheric.

P.S: For those who are having issues/crashes, here’s a fix:

1)Run the game.

2)Open Task Manager.

For Windows 7 or older:

3)Go to the Processes tab. (Second tab from left to right)

4)Find and right click the defiance.exe process.

For Windows 8/10:

3)Go to the Details tab. (Second tab from right to left)

4)Find and right click the defiance.exe process.

5)From the menu, click Set Affinity.

“He knew that all the hazards and perils were now drawing together to a point: the next day would be a day of doom, the day of final effort or disaster, the last gasp.”

~J.R.R. Tolkien

Endings. Those sure can be tricky. Especially when it’s about video games. Seriously, how many game series with perfect endings can you remember? Sometimes the greed simply blinds publishers and they begin to mass-produce games without caring much. We all know how it usually ends. The original Tomb Raider series is a perfect example of such an approach. Some others try to play it smart but fail due to lack of talent (hard not to remember Desmond Miles' story from Assassin’s Creed series, right?). But one way or another, we rarely get perfect finales in video game series. Surprisingly, that’s exactly what we’ve got this time. A perfect finale. But I’m getting ahead of myself.

Lost City of Vampires

This game is an amazing gem on steam.. If you find the time it is 100% worth it.. The graphics are good .. The many weapon choices are good.. It was only created by one guy which makes you question what the hell other companies are doing when one guy can create 4 different levels about a BR single player if you have been looking for one then look no further.. I hope someone picks this guy up to develop more games because I’m all in buddy.. Cant wait to see what you have in store for us in the future ..

Lost City of Vampires bring battle royale mode into single player game play.

I was given the opportunity to check out Lost City of Vampires before it released and I thought it was very well put together. The battle royale mode executed for a single player that has to face off against 99 npc’s was well done.

If you are looking for a unique experience you can find that with Lost City of Vampires. The different levels in the game will force you to attack your enemies differently as you rank up.

Nosferatu Lilinor

Nosferatu Lilinor

At first glance, you might think Nosferatu Lilinor is a cute pixel platformer, like a kiddie Castlevania. Quite to the contrary, it’s a nail-bitingly difficult, heavily retro-inspired puzzle/action game, far closer to Solomon’s Key. It makes no apologies for its skill ceiling, which requires you to outwit a variety of stronger, faster, and deadlier enemies, despite having various vampire powers at your disposal. Undoubtedly fans of 80’s arcade games will find a nostalgic satisfaction here, but modern gamers may have a harder time to appreciate its value.
