Liked the aesthetic, but the gameplay looks kinda messed up.

I'm going to buy this game because of the music.

Watching this just made me really want a 2d HD Castlevania game on the PSN/XBLA

That crab boss is directly out of Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, if I remember correctly.

This game looks pretty solid, though. Might pick it up.

The backgrounds are nice and I do like the music, but almost everything that's animated looks... cheap. Like something out of a free Flash game you play in your browser.

Looks great. The only thing I don't like is the Comic Sans font in the UI.

Getting a bit of a Daisuke Ishiwatari wibe from the music.

...sucking the juice out of giant bugs is weirding me out.

So why is the sunlight hurting Rayne? She is a Dhampir NOT a Vampire and thus has no problems walking in daylight. *sigh*

I don't think there are enough people that care about BloodRayne for canon to really matter.  Vampire game having a light mechanic is a great idea. 
By the way, that was no sunlight. MAYBE IT WAS DHAMPIR KILLING RAYS?!?!

This actually looks pretty great. I may have to pick this up after I beat Rock of Ages and Bastion and the other few downloadables I want to play.

I hope the fighting system is as smooth as Dishwasher VS.
I loved that game and could go for more 2D combat like that.

So far, this is the only BloodRayne game I actually want to play.

I must be jaded as hell, but this doesn't look that fun. The animation is super awesome looking and good art style, but I feel a little disconnected from the action. The hit flashes or something needs to be changed to that it feels like you're actually hitting enemies because it doesn't look that way from the video.

Hard to explain exactly.. but it seems hard to make a sprite based game like this while constantly re-enforcing that your sprite takes up physical space in the game world and isn't just cardboard cutouts overlapping each other.

I may have to get this. I don't think I'll ever stop liking slick looking 2D stuff.

Initially I had absolutely zero interest in even looking at the game, based on the name. This QL probably tipped my opinion all the way over to 'seriously considering buying'

Phew got hewre before konami  bought and renamed this to Castlevania Bloodrayne.
Just like that other  game with the castlevania sticker slapped on to the title  whats that name of that subpar god of war clone with generic puzzles???

Hearing the name Bloodrayne made me hesitant, but this is some good old fashioned Castlevania-esque lovin. I'm in.

Well, at least half of Sony's Summer thing lineup is good. This game doesn't appear to be in that half.

This looks great!  I love the art style and the combat looks pretty good as well. Although, this leaves me wanting for either a new SOTN-style Castlevania with super smooth 2D animation like this or for this Bloodrayne game to have gone all the way with its Castlevania influences and incorporated more exploration. Maybe if this sells well...?

I'd love for this to be a Metroidvania game, but the gameplay is probably focused on combat and action. However, speaking as someone who has a certain fondness for WayForward's 2D games, I'll definitely give the demo a try.

@Boosh: Exactly what I was thinking. Her idle animation even kind of looks like Alucard's.

Wait... this is on XBLA too? I thought this was a PSN exclusive. What's the point of PSN's summer of arcade block party thing if none of the games are exclusive to the service?

Some of them are coming first to PSN and all of them are discounted for Plus members. I believe they are only $12 instead of $15 for Plus.
