BloodRayne 2 Demo

The Official BloodRayne 2 Website now offers downloads of a BloodRayne 2 demo, showing off the upcoming PC edition of Terminal Reality's Vampiric action sequel. Word is: "We previously released the Meatpacking level for Xbox players but you PC gamers get a special treat--a new level unreleased in demo form. Now you can experience the Mansion where Rayne dons her vampy black dress from the game's cover art." The site requires registration for downloads, but the 476 MB demo is also now mirrored on 3D Gamers, ActionTrip, Boomtown (registration required), FileFront, Filerush (torrent), FileShack (registration required), Gameguru Mania, Gamer's Hell, GameSpot DLX (registration required), and Worthplaying.

Man, you guys don't know what you're missing IMHO.

This demo totally rocks. To my surprise, it has much more than boobies going for it! It would be a mistake to dismiss BloodRayne 2 as just another Tomb Raider knock-off.

First of all, the graphics in the demo are simply stunning. The screenshots don't do it justice at all. Bloodrayne 2 blows away any game to date in sheer visual style, beauty, and level design. This game is simply a work of art and a joy to look at.

The game includes an advanced physics system, not only ragdoll physics for the models, but a complete physics system for every object in the game world. everything in is destructible: furniture, glass, statues, wood, books, you name it. If you can see it, you can destroy it, and the game is chockful of beautifully rendered objects for you to mess with.

The levels in the demo remind me of the Office level in CS:Source, in terms of the incredible amount of detail and physics going on.

The controls take some time getting used to, but once you make the effort, you wlll be richly rewarded. They become second nature after a while, though the learning curve might be a bit steep initially.

There's a complete fighting and acrobatics system, as well as a selection of firing wapons and some nifty melee weapons. You earn new combo moves and weapons by defeating bosses and various objectives. according to the preview, there are dozens more combo moves, enemy types and weapons in the full game.

This game is a much needed breath of fresh air from the usual run-of-the-mill, run and gun Doom 3-type shooter that have been saturating the market of late.

There's something much more satisfying and visceral about taking out the enemies by pulling off a cool combo move or hacking off his/her libbs with a blade, instead of simply mowing them down with a machine gun ala Doom 3 (boring). This game is truly a work of art and beautiful to look at. The level of interactivity here is comparable to HL2 and CS:Source.

If an action game with jaw-dropping graphics, innovation, awesome physics, a rich combat and acrobatics system and more sounds interesting to you, than give this game a chance!

This demo freaking rocks!
