Reviews

“It's heavy on story, atmosphere, and puzzles! Not a standard hidden object or casual adventure game, Dracula: Love Kills builds a bridge between genres and provides a puzzle-centric experience that plays less like a hidden object game and more like a puzzle game with a narrative. A good length from start to finish, plenty of things to unlock/achieve, a story you actually want to take part in, and puzzles built around a hidden object/adventure core, Dracula: Love Kills is an excellent addition to any casual gamer's library.”
4.4 out of 5 – Jayisgames

“There's lots of top-notch hidden object searching, plenty of puzzle solving and finally, for once, a chance to play the bad guy as a really bad guy. That alone is almost worth the price of admission, and Dracula: Love Kills is definitely worth a look.”
4 out of 5 – Gamezebo

“This game proves that a classic tale told with refreshing twists, diverse protagonists who play off each other's discrete personalities, a vast repository of thoughtful challenges, moral dilemmas yielding different outcomes, and impressive art and architecture will produce a winner irrespective of the format. It has both style and substance, and is worth playing at least a couple of times for all fans of vampires and/or casual adventure games.”

An ok story, the puzzles go from simplistic to complicated. I solved a couple of them with 1-2 clicks before I even know what the goal was. Where the game fall short is the achievements, if your first playthrew is not under 5 hours, you have to start a new profile. You have to go threw the game twice at minimum, but most likly 3-4 times if an achievement dose not unlock properly.

If you are looking for 100% achievement games, I would tell you to pass on this one. If you are just looking for a good point & click I do sudgest this game.

Alright.

This is yet another point and click adventure I played. And as ever, the inner perfectionist got the better of me and demanded of me to achieve all there is to achieve. So there we are.

Aside from a small glitch that I lost one of my achievements just before I would have completed all, thus having to play the entire game plus extra game a third time, it was plenty of fun. The storyline is not too overloaded, but it also is a very clear line. And you even have a moral choice here. It is nothing as deep and imersive as Mass Effect or similar Triple-A titles, but it does get across a point. At least for me.

The graphics, the music and the atmosphere of the game all harmonize perfectly. To me, "Dracula: Love Kills" is one of the most enjoyable point and click adventures with Hidden Object and Puzzle elements out there. And now, after playing it straight for several hours today, I will fall into bed and pass out to have some well-earned sleep.

Short version: 71%
A repetitive hidden object game with a large number of difficult puzzles, that is just unable to stop. Vampire fans may enjoy it, but casual players and achievement hunters will have their patience tested to or beyond the limits.

Long version:
Dracula: Love Kills is an average hidden object puzzle game with a lot of scavenging: gameplay mostly consists of gathering fragments from maps or hidden object scenes that are assembled into puzzles which are solved to get even more fragments. Repeat until the credits roll– although it often feels as if that moment will never come.

There isn’t even a good story to save it. It’s a sequel to the original novel using the classic movie cast (completed with terrible accents), where Dracula and his reluctant helper, Van Helsing have to travel all over the world to save Mina Harker from the Queen of the Vampires. The plot just repeats itself numerous times and the nonsensical level progression quickly kills the atmosphere.

Frankly, you’ll find a better deal in the developer’s other title they put on Steam: Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles. A superior game in every possible aspect.

This game follows the hidden object/adventure hybrid, with a story and mini-games. There is a bonus chapter along with replayable hidden object scenes and mini-games/puzzles. Voice acting isn't that great, but I've heard worse. Your character learns powers that allow slightly different interaction with some objects, so you must identify where to use them and which one (if you choose the wrong one it just won't allow you to use it, so you don't waste anything by trying). There is an annoyance (at least on my computer) where the mouse cursor sometimes pauses or hangs while mousing over objects. Other than that, fun game.

Beautiful design, involving story, various puzzles and no bugs – "Dracula: Love Kills" meets all the criteria that define a great HO game. Plus Dracula has magic powers, there is extra unlockable content and the game integrates Steam achievements.

My overall rating: 10/10

The main reason to buy this game:

- Because Dracula stalks his victims by turning all the lights out and smacking into hedge walls. All this requires the victim to stand there patiently, listening to another "oof!" and crash of branches in the night.

Player-specific reasons to buy this game:

- If you play DOTA, Dracula sounds like Tusk's little brother. This makes all the dialogue scenes much more interesting.

- You can play tic-tac-toe with crabs, against crabs. If you do not pay attention, you can also be owned at tic-tac-toe by crabs.

The less-than-perfect thing about this game:

- If a vampire is measured against his or her enemies, you kind of feel sad about Van Helsing there.

Also there are hidden objects and puzzles, also lots of pretty art, if vampires wandering into hedges isn't enough for you.

I won't lie that this game is a masterpiece, naah. But it is so, so charming - you know with the charm of B movies: naive, cute, full of hilarious dialogs, overdone accents and caricature characters.

The voice acting makes this game unforgetable, it is so ironically bad (I am sorry, actors) that it is almost spectacular. Igor is a star of this game, I bet he will be your favourite character and all his phrases will put a big smile on your face.

The game itself is a point & click adventure with tons of puzzles and mini-games. The puzzle part is interesting and pretty challenging. Some of the puzzles confused me and I was close to rage quit (but I guess it is because I am too impatient).

Art is really pleasant here, locations with hidden objects are drawn beautifully, every detail is carefully designed.

Achievements are fun and interesting to do. Verdict - time well spent!
Dracula: Love Kills is a lovely puzzle game, seasoned with plenty of irony, fake transilvanian accent and one hardcore decision - to bite or not to bite.

Dracula: Love Kills is a fun casual hidden object game. I really enjoyed playing it because it is very user friendly: the game is designed to help you understand what you are supposed to do next, without spoiling the fun or the story.

Apart from the common elements that appear in every hidden object game (hints, difficulty levels, extras) the game offers a tutorial / strategy guide which is very helpful for players that are new to this type of game. The game also shows when a location is complete, thus making the game experience very enjoyable since you don't waste time any more looking for clues in the locations that you've already visited.

Most of the puzzles have a medium difficulty, some are very easy and intuitive, but there are a few brain teasers that will surely challenge your logic and patience.

There are a million seek and find or hidden object games. They're in every store that has computer software. Somewhere in the far reaches of the software isle, all priced at 9.99. Steam has plenty, Big Fish has hundreds. They're everywhere. My wife and I have played a good chunk of them. This one stands out as better then your average.

Note: This review is for those familiar with hidden object games

The puzzles are basically what you'd expect, with a few nice surprises. There are too many tile puzzles in my opinion, but not enough to spoil the process.

Visually stimulating for a hidden object game, with nice backdrops.

The story/voice acting is pretty bad, as you could have guessed anyway.

The objects aren't blurry or difficult to find. Resolution is solid.

While mostly what you'd expect from a more "modern" hidden object, this one is polished. It's not clunky in navigation, the puzzles work great, and its very vivid. There's enough here to say this is one of the most polished I've played in quite some time.

Bottom Line: If you want a crisp hidden object game, mostly containing what you would expect with puzzles/story, but doing it very well, this should fit the bill. You'll enjoy it.

Very fun, you play as Igor, the loyal servant of Count Dracula! Together you travel the world solving puzzles and hidden object games. This game is good for new players or veterans with a difficulty setting, for new players it has a strategy guide which is helpful. This game has alot of locations and helps you know where to go instead of just guessing like other games. Great voice acting with fantastic artwork plus bonus content and extra games makes this game a must have. Even after beating the game the story can go on with more content in the extra games section.

Rating: 10/10 Value: $9.99

Interesting story line. Puzzles are challenging. Very entertaining overall and the extra unlockable mini story is an added bonus.

I really enjoyed this game - while being primarily Hidden Object with a story, the art and music are lovely. The voice acting did seem a bit overdone, although Van Hellsing's was good. There was a good variety of puzzles, and while most seemed very easy, a couple did actually stump me. I think this was worth my $10.

A little bit of background information: I generally stay away from hidden-object games as I consider them to be monotonous. However, I have enjoyed many "point and click" adventure games in which hidden-object scenes appear every so often.

I would consider Dracula: Love Kills as an adventure game with an abundance of varied puzzles as well as hidden object scenes. It's not a pure hidden-object game. While it started off in an interesting manner, and while it indeed has many challenging puzzles, I cannot recommend the game, because I feel it completely lacks any atmosphere. As a result, getting to the end of the game felt like a monotonous chore.

What do I mean when I say lacking in atmosphere? Well, I found the storyline and character interaction/progression absurd, and most importantly, I felt like the developers just lumped in a bunch of random objects to form hidden object scenes -- random objects which have no place being there, given the time period and locale (Example: objects of Chinese origin within a medieval tomb). It made the entire game feel rather tacky.

Dracula: Love Kills isn't an awful game, and I think the developers did quite well in coming up with some of the original puzzles. However, I think there's many higher quality "casual adventure games" out there (Azada and Nightmare Adventures: The Witch's Prison are two games that I recall having an engaging atmosphere and storyline).

A decent looking point and click paired with hidden object game.... aside of cheesy dialogues and kinda irritating artstyle for the Count Dracula.

If you happen to read other reviews and they say the game's story kinda monotonous, it is. A simple 'world being haunted by evil witch and we gotta save the princess and the world', with mediocre voice actors and OSTs. I'm glad I didn't fall asleep when playing the game because of them.... Then again it's not the main focus, so you can as well disregard it.

The point and click adventure is the same you find on other games like The Walking Dead. You find an object like keys, use them to unlock the doors somewhere to get another items to unlock another places. During the process you'll encounter a hidden object mini-games that upon completion reward you with the items necessary to continue the journey. Progressing further into the game, you'll unlock special powers for the Count Dracula so he can shapeshift as a bat, has telekinesis power and all seeing eye (Sauron? heh...) that help you to access certain areas the obstacles or see invisible stuffs.

Some of the mini games are complicated enough and/or have vague helps/hints but there's an in-game strategy guide, so if you get stuck you can refer to it. You can also skip puzzles after spending certain amount in-puzzle without solving it.

The game as a whole is so-so - not that bad but not that good. For 5 hours long single playthrough, at least. I wouldn't recommend this full price, however.

Another Waterlily game, more of the same licence-maiming and repeated puzzles.
The interface and gameplay are the same as Hound of the Baskervilles, and the voice acting is similarly crummy. Mina Harker is American (for some reason), and Dracula manages to sound both overplayed and robotic.
The story is some nebulous guff about the Queen of Vampires and her implausible minions covering the world in red goo, with an extra chapter about Pluto being the father of all evil.

Hold up a crucifix to this game, and walk away.

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.

A thoroughly enjoyable HOG/adventure game hybrid. Playable by newcomers to the genre or veterans, and the story has some great B-movie shenanigans. I really like the HOGs that have more going on than just hidden-object finding, so this is a definite winner for me.

Over all a good game, but i wouldn't recommend it though. It has very bad voice acting, so if it was just music, it would be better, and the annoying "slurrrp" sound every time you find blood... the story line was a bit annoying. I am very bad at puzzle games, but i love them, and the puzzles in this one are fun. i know a lot of people who love puzzle games too, but story, voice acting and more can drive them away. Over all a good game but not one to enjoy over and over again
