About This Game

A fright-filled Adventure that transpires in the heart of Transylvania.

London 1904. Seven years after the slaying of Dracula, you play as Jonathan Harker, (the protagonist from Bram Stoker's original novel) and soon discover your wife, Mina has fled London for the Count's castle in Transylvania. Has Mina fallen prey to vampires? Or could this mean... Dracula... he's still alive?!

Bram Stoker's terrifying world is faithfully brought to life in this danger-riddled Point & Click adventure. Thirsty for blood? Do you dare play this cat and mouse game with the (un)dead? Enter at your own risk.

Key Features:
  • 1st person panoramic views properly convey the foreboding and terrifying mood
  • Puzzles, challenges and an abundance of horrible evils await as you maneuver from one location to the next
  • Journey across an eerie nighttime forest and an isolated Romanian Inn. Make your way through an abandoned underground mine system, pass images of birds nailed to graveyard crosses and encounter hooded shapes as you enter the ominous Castle of the Prince of Darkness
  • A chilling atmosphere, a menacing soundtrack and ambient SFX underscore the hair-raising fear that resonates throughout
  • Animated cutscenes bring the story to life and transports you into the dark depths of the world of Dracula

I had this epic game on PS1 when i was child... It is the reason i like horror-adventure games and i would suggest you to buy with my eyes closed.... But unfortunately Steam version is AWFUL!!! First of all, the great intro where you shoot Dracula is missing!!! Secondly, the dialogues and cinematics isn't on full screen as the original but windowed.... The graphics, the atmosphere and the sounds aren't that creepy as the old scary and full of emotions game... Also, the parts with the magnifying glass where you see some less important things of the game are missing too... But these aren't the worse! On steam version you can see exactly where there are items to grap, where you need to use items, so you have only to move your mouse and find where to use the right item, something that makes the game very very easy.... On the original game i spent many hours to find all items or where you need to use them something that here is obvious... Finally, you can see where to use an item only if the item is available to grap right now... On the original you could see that somewhere you should use an item you don't have either if you hadn't found it cause you were careless (something that can't happen now cause you see exactly where the items are!) either if you will find it later.... As you can see then you were confused if you should return back to find a lost item behind or if you will find it later so you should focus your attetion somewhere else (something that made the game more difficult)! For all these reasons i would suggest you to buy the original game on PS or PC, otherwise buy this on sale! My rate for the original game is surely 8,5-9 cause it's great but for this one will be lower....

My rate for this game is: 6,5/10

I like Dracula: The Resurrection. It's a fun, if short, Myst like adventure game with beautiful graphics and a intresting storyline that follows up on Bram Stoker's novel.

However, these postives are for the CD version of the game. The steam version seems to be a bad port of the IOS version with over simplistc controls that are still somehow confusing, lots of cut videos (inculding, most unforgivably the intro video, witch is still in the trailer...) and what videos that still in the game are in a small frame rather than in full screen like the CD version.

And worse of all the game is broken. At one point a door that you need to go through to continue is locked and there is nothing you can do to unlock it thus making the game uncompletable.

As I say D:TR is a good game but you would need to track down the CD version to experince it as this version is a broken mess.

Awful version of a great classic game.

the pros: -

- The game itself is still good and was fun to play through for nostalgia factor.
- The environments in the game much to my surprise scalled perfectly to my 21:9 monitor.

The cons: -

- The original game had a much better user interface, I cant understand why it has been changed to what it is in this version.
- There are several bugs throughout such as not being able to read the dairy at the inn (mentioned by another user). And one inparticular for me was game breaking and prevented me for finishing the game as I clicked on something before I should have. Then when I went to 'load game' to restart the section I was unable scroll through the chapters. The game is simply poorly coded / not tested thoroughly. Particuarly noticable as the bugs get worse towards the end.

In summary this is a great point and click game worth playing but definately not this version until it is patched. As far as I know GOG has the classic trillogy, so if you cant wait I would advise going with their version.

First, there is a long-standing bug in the Mac game that prevents you from playing more than the first few minutes (you get stuck with no hotspots in the Inn).

When trying to find a solution for that, I learned that this is NOT the full Dracula game. It is a port of the mobile version, which is missing much of the puzzles, several videos, etc, etc, etc. The forum posters suggest getting the version on Good Old Games instead.

Sad to say, but this game has several bugs that can rob you the fun of an otherwise good adventure game. I just wish there was a workaround to those bugs The Notebook can't be read and the library door remains locked .

It's dated, sure, but that shouldn't be a problem. What is a problem are the bugs which break the game.

This is a crippled port of the Android/iPad version, missing a lot of content/puzzles and has worse graphics and video quality than the original PC release! Also has many more bugs. Don't buy it, unless the developer releases the original PC version as well (which run fine on current Windows systems). They have released the original PC versions on other game sites and promised to do so on Steam as well, so I can't understand why it is taking them so long. Definitely don't try to play this mess of a game though in its current state (actually the same applies to Dracula 1-3 from the same developer!)

Well it started out okay. Very old school. Until I hit Dracula's castle. A part of the castle that should have been opened...was not. So now, the game is unwinnable for me. Just like Necronomicon. At least Necronomicon had a patch. This is just sitting here getting moldy. Would not recommend, unless you like to not finish games due to some kind of programming error/glitch/bug. I'm not looking forward to playing the other 2 Draculas due to this.

This goes doesn't work on OS X. After the introduction videos (and a screen of how-to-play-the-game), you click around a bit until you reach the inn - and then you're stuck. There's nothing to click on, nothing to do, no way out.

Over in the discussion forums people have been complaining about this for at least four months. Still no sign of a fix.

At least I only paid $5.

Dracula: The Resurrection was, when it was first released on CDs, a great and creepy game for adventure fans. It was short and easy, but had a very good story and great graphics for the time. I was very excited when I've seen the Steam version, since the my original CDs are a bit old.

But something's wrong with this Steam version... For starters, the introduction prologue is gone! Yes, one of the best scenes in the game is nowhere to be found! Not only that, but the ending seems to be censored: a part of the ending has a scene missing...

Other than that, this version has too many issues that SHOULDN'T be here: the videos are a LOT more grainy than the original ones, and they don't scale to widescreen monitors (however, in gameplay, the game DOES scale, making the transition from a cutscene to the gameplay very unnatural).

Oh, and all the puzzles in this version where simplified, and some of them actually auto solve when you click it.

The game itself isn't great. Like I said before, its VERY short and easy, it has a horrible voice acting, and a weird zoom-in effect when you transition from one screen to another. On the other hand its not a BAD game either. The storyline, while short, its VERY well told, the creepyness factor is very high (a must for a game based on the Dracula's lore). But this new version is VERY disappointing. It looks worse than the original version, has scenes missing, and don't have any new adition.

Really not worth it. Better to try to find the old CD version (or even the Playstation one).


BTW, both the trailer and the screenshots on the store page are misleading. The trailer shows scenes that where removed from the game, and both the trailer and the screenshots shows the cutscenes in a widescreen format, something that this version doesn't support.

Was really looking forward to playing this game, it's often described as a classic of the horror genre and I was excited to see it on steam. There was a version for the Mac and the price seemed very reasonable. Once the game downloaded I eagerly clicked "Play" and waited to see the game start.
The intro was a lot shorter then I was expecting, seems the opening cutscene is from the remade touch compatible version but I didn't mind as it only got the action starting a little quicker.
The graphics were very nice, the controls took a little getting used to and I spent a few moments spinning like a top before I worked out how sensitive the controls were.
Still on with the game. I spotted an inn and went inside, a lovely cutscene of the Barkeep starts up and then I'm left in the inn to explore. Except there wasn't anything to explore.

No flashing icons to move, talk to anyone, pick anything up. I figured I must have entered too early and I need to go somewhere outside to trigger more chat. I turned around and there was no hotspot. I spent several minutes moving the pointer over every inch of every part of the Inn looking for anything, something that I could interact with. Nothing.

I restarted the game and went exploring, I could go to other places but they were all either locked or blocked by a character who just told me to move along. Back I went to the Inn and again no hotspots.

I got a little annoyed with the game at this point and went to look for a full walkthrough to see exactly what I had to to do move the story along. They all said the same things, talk to this character and pick up this item. I tried 5 or 6 walkthroughs and didn't get a step further along in the game.

I turned to the support forum for steam and it seems the mac version is broken. It does surprise me that Steam would release a game that is known to be unplayable on a particular OS. Why not just not have a Mac version if it doesn't work. It would certainly make the userbase happier not being sold something that doesn't work.

In short if you have a Mac don't even dream of buying this or the rest of the trilogy, they aren't Mac compatible in any way.
Which seems odd given that this version is ported from the iPad.

A very good old school puzzle game, I originally played it on the PS1 back in the day and got addicted to it, it has been extremely difficult to get hold of it. The controls are a bit odd to get use to as you need to hold left mouse button and move the mouse to look around.

Maybe controller support would be better for a game like this or improved mouse control

A simple point and click game, with a few puzzles
Story is meh
Gameplay is meh, like a slideshow.
Hardly any action
You can't die
Puzzles are super easy I mean SUPER easy
Voice sync is awful
No game intro
and BEST of all: about 30 seconds of dracula and it is in a cut scene. You have no interaction with him what so ever.

I know it seems harsh and maybe at its time it was ok... but ive played alot better point and click games including games that came out when dracula resurrection was released and before it.
3/10

I hear Dracula 2 is a lot better so I am gonna check that out.

Dracula The Resurrection, This is a great game for the beginner adventure gamer. Ths Puzzles are set uot so as not to get the player stuck but to allow time for the puzzles to be thought through. The graphics are very low but the game play is not lost. Be sure to pick up anything thats not bolted down and try ervy combination of inventory items with those in the game and you will exceed.

I will certainly keep this one in the stock pile of my games.

Oh, and before I go.... If you are a Drucula genre, like myself this and the other games in this series is for you! Happy Nights Ahead..Bwwahhh...
