Sobre este jogo

Dracula: Origin reveals the dark origins of the Dracula curse. Once the ardent defender of Christendom, Dracula loses his faith in God when he is abandoned by his one true love after she marries. Dracula then makes a pact with the Prince of Darkness, and becomes a vampire. As time goes by, Dracula discovers the existence of a manuscript that allegedly details a rite which brings damned souls back from the beyond.
In Dracula: Origin, the player takes the role of the famous Professor Van Helsing whose life's aim is the destruction of Dracula. Van Helsing must stop the vampire from finding the manuscript. A rich adventure that takes him from London to Egypt, Austria and through Carpathian Europe right into the terrifying home of the Dark Prince.

  • A relentless hunt throughout several countries, in pursuit of one of the most terrifying characters in fantastic literature.
  • Superb graphics combining 2D environments and 3D characters backed by an excellent scenario.
  • Interact with more than 40 characters. Use and combine more than 150 objects belonging to the vampire world (stake, statue, garlic, mirror and many more).

An exceptionally great game which I entirely recommend to anyone who is tired of these "new generation" games in which everything is explained for you to the point that you don't have to find anything out for yourself and everything is design to not demand time from the player. This game is design to demand concentration and intelligence from the player and to get him involved to the story. It's worth not only its price but also every second spent, without any doubt.

This is an excellent Dracula game. I had a blast going through all the puzzles and trying to find out in what order you were supposed to do things. I strongly recomend this game for those who like puzzle games.

I wanted to like this game. I really did. I like Dracula, the book, and a couple movie versions. (Dracula 2000, the original Bela Lugosi one)
I've also liked different people's takes on Dracula. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for example was hardly true to the source material but still succeeding in making Dracula an interesting character and being in general an awesome game.
This... this was not.
They diverged from the traditional Dracula storylines, but never in interesting ways. The gameplay itself was boring as hell.
I want there to be a good game about Dracula, I really really do. It could be awesome. But this isn't it.
If you want a story based vampire fix, go play VtM Bloodlines.

Personal Rating: " Worth playing"
Traditional Rating: 7/10
Genre: Point and Click Puzzle Adventure

Frogware - the team behind the Sherlock Holmes point and click adventures, return with a game based on Bram Stokers Dracula. Having loved the novel from a very early age and adored the Francis Ford Coppola interpretation to screen I am very well versed in the tale of Count Dracula and his abandonment of his faith to become a vampire. Dracula, with all its elements of horror, still to this day remains one of the most enduring love stories of our time and I have lost count the amount of times I have read the original novel or watched the 1993 Oscar winning movie.

The game doesn't follow the novel to the tee and makes some diversions in plot and characterization which I was honestly fine with since this is an interactive medium. I don't play as many point and click adventures as I would like to these days (It used to be my favorite genre when Sierra and Lucas Arts ruled the gaming roost) so I really enjoy my time with the game more than I probably would any other adventure game purely because of the Dracula connection. In terms of gameplay it's the standard adventure fare where the player must collect items and use them in conjunction with various other items, characters or places to move the tale along. Also, as with every adventure game known to man, there are some puzzles which simply defy any kind of logic and its a matter of trying various combinations to pass them which can get very tiresome and rather frustrating.

At just over 10 hours of gameplay, the game doesn't overstay its welcome either. Story and voice acting could have done with a bit of tightening and control. Van Helsing is all over the place tonally often sounding far too excited when he is simply being offered a cup of tea or bored to death when chasing down Dracula for the showdown. The graphics aren't exactly revolutionary but you don't need Nvidia Titans for adventure games so they end up being more than serviceable.

If you enjoy the Dracula myth and/or puzzle adventure games then give it a try. I recommend this title.

Hell,
I love this game!!!!
Has hidden objects & really works my mind. It's nothing like those stupid games on Pogo.com my mother trys to get me to play. I really enjoyed this game & it's also goes with the few games that actually keeps my attention & interest well enough to play it all the way through.
I've been playing games since a kid when Nintendo, Segs Dreamcast, even Atari came out on Doctors recomendations due to a consitration & focusing problem I have.
So, even as a 37 year old it's still hard to find games to help with those problems when they actually can't keep your interest long enough.

I will recommend this game especially for those who have the same problems I do.

An average to decent game that is worth it if you like adventure games, but probably not otherwise.

The puzzles were probably my favorite part of this game because a lot of them were actually challenging (yet a few were confusing but I got by). I would definetly recommend this to someone who likes the supernatural games yet just wants a game that allows them to relax while they play. I wasn't too fond of the ending and am really concerned about the fact there isn't a part 2 (that I could find)!!!! Overall good game.

There is a number of problems with this game.

First off, a thing many adventures used to pull in earlier times, the "click every single corner of the map to find a miniscule object". The moody pallete of the game, although good for the feeling of the source material, makes this even worse. A black veil on top of a tomb that could have been an aristic depiction of shadow? A metallic grey pulley in the ceiling with grey cinder blocks in the background. Yeah, not a lot of fun having to resort to a walkthrough to find those.

The puzzles overall are good and the game's strongest point, although be warned it is old-school. You will find no instructions, hints or a skip button. It is up to you to decide if this is your thing or not. Personally I feel like that some puzzles would need at least some form of hint from the protagonist (e.g. the pentagram puzzle).

The atmosphere is hit and miss, with the Cairo music being probably the worst. Even worse and probably the worse part of the game excluding "hidden objects" is some of the interactions. Need water that hasn't touched the ground? Just take some from a trough and boil it. Throw a jar of bugs at a bug-eating minion that ignores you completely might sound weird but can be explained to morality, if only you didn't set another minion ablaze later. Make a key out of a strange goo (don't ask) and pretzels in front of the innkeeper you want to trick and he is none the wiser or use a dead beaver as part of a funnel system. And the list of absurd interactions goes on.

Unless it comes heavily discounted or part of a bundle, avoid. If you find it discounted, have patience, a walkthrough for the "hidden items" and want to have a few laughts, buy it, Frogwares has moved on to better games since, so at least you are helping them.

Commits the classic no'no's of adventure games, illogical puzzles and overly-pricise puzzles (that's a puzzle that won't complete unless you've drawn, placed or down something in a very specific way yet is very open ended and comes with little to no guidance to insure you do it 100% right in the first place).

Simply put I had to youtube the first puzzle (the map drawing one) and 4th or so puzzle because it was cryptic / random. If you have to do that so early so often it's the early indication of a poor adventure game I'm afraid. Of course if you don't mind / care about solving the puzzles yourself (a core mechanic in my opinion) it's probably still going to be a good game for you.

if you're bored as hell, you might find this game interesting. But the bad thing with this game, is that it ends so quickly. it would be much more awesome, if there was more action and if it was longer.

I won't waste much time explaining every detail in which this game is an abomination. But here are some cons:

  • Terrible voice acting, one of the worst I've ever heard
  • Slow gameplay, boring interface
  • Weird story development
  • Weirdest introduction to a game
  • Lots of texts try to add to the game story, but it's just boring

I couldn't play much. The first hour was terrible enough.

Over the years adventure games have developed some effective mechanisms to prevent you from getting stumped or bored but adventure games are still the worst crud in gaming.

An excellent choice for women and millenials.

I went into this knowing full well what I was walking into. If you've played Still Life, Art of Murder or Sherlock Holmes you know what kind of game this is. It's a casual puzzle game with story enough to make you want to see what happens. This isn't a game you want if you are a die hard on graphic quality.

I would recommend this game to anyone just looking for a game to pass the time with.

I didn't have to force myself to finish this game like I find myself doing with many adventure games. Something new was always going on and nothing felt redundant or stale. The puzzles in this game are good and makes sense. With enough hunting of clues, you can solve them. I recommend it for those who enjoy puzzle adventure games!

Dracula Origin for me presented an interesting and enjoyable story in settings that varied greatly and where both interesting to explore and well designed. The puzzels presented within Dracula vary in difficulty and complexity and the style of them also changes depending on the location you are in, this is a nice touch and keeps the game moving and engaging for the around 2 - 3 hours you are in a certain area. The story within the game follows a rather cliche plot, and ends abruptly however its enough to keep you going, however for an adventure game where story is usually a mian factor it is a bit of a let down. The sound design is great, with different background music playing in different areas and ambient noise creating a creepy atmosphere which suits the overall theme of the game.

Overall Dracula Origin is a well designed adventure game and did as a whole keep me interested, I would recommend this game to anyone wanting a casual adventure game that does not last to long but overall tells a short creepy story with clever puzzels. For me $10 is a good price for fun experience you will get, however if you are not that into adventure games I would recommend waiting for a sale.

Overall 8/10.

Good point and click adventure game. Puzzles were challenging, the voice acting was decent, the atmosphere was perfect for a gothic vampire theme. I appreciated how the puzzles reflected the game and weren't stand alone like in many other games; for example, you had to figure out the demons from normal animals or puzzles relating to dark arts. The music was okay, it got a little repetitive when trying to figure out a puzzle. My only complaint is I think they took out the see through top of the succubus from this game. You can find it in a couple of screenshots, but after playing the game recently I think they just zoomed in on her face for that particular scene. I was waiting to screenshot it myself! Censorship is kind of annoying. The story was great too adding to the historical lore of Dracula in detail. Overall 7.5/10
