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.

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.
