The side-scrolling hack-n-slash gameplay is accompanied by crisply animated sprites and stark contrasting colors. The game even drops into silhouettes on occasion in order to make that contrasting style even more pronounced . Betrayal's anime-makeover of the classic genre might take long-time fans a bit to get used to, but it really does fit. Rayne herself looks good as she slashes her way through waves of grotesque creatures of many shapes and sizes and in the process, gallons of blood will fly across the screen in a Kill Bill: Volume 1 manner.
The game's music also does a solid job of getting you into the hack-n-slash mood, but I found that the music was ultimately forgettable after the game was turned off. As for the sound effects, the various noises the creatures make, combined with Rayne's sword slashes and gun retorts, all help to add to the overall atmosphere of the game.
