About This Game

The trilogy continues as the Prince of Darkness rises again.

September 1920, the Vatican appoints Father Arno Moriani, the "Devil's Advocate", to investigate a potential candidate for Sainthood in Transylvania. But in the shadows of the disturbing ruins that were once Vlad the Impaler's castle, his investigation takes an unexpected turn...

There is obviously no such thing as vampires... at least according to the official line of the Catholic Church. But how can you be so sure, standing in the swirling mists of Transylvania? Carry out your investigation amidst tales of bloody deeds and ancestral fears.

Key Features:
  • High Definition graphics and movies with full panoramic views to see every unnerving detail
  • Unlocking puzzles will require a test of your skills across sight, sound and taste (the taste of blood that is)
  • Special hidden bonuses lurk in the darkness but well worth the reward if you dare to solve it
  • Moody music, fear-inducing darkness and environments, an investigation that proves the further you dig, the deeper you sink into this diabolical occult adventure

While this game started off promising as far as the look goes, I had a very hard time playing it. These games were known for being puzzle games. Well, they've removed the puzzles from this version. That means you're going along playing when suddenly you hit a snag because you have a feeling you're supposed to do something to progress. Except the thing you're supposed to do has been removed or - worse - half removed. I spent this entire game bumbling through almost-puzzles that made no sense. You better hope you don't get stuck on a "puzzle" because any walkthrough you find will be useless, since the "puzzle" you're working on will be some ramshackle version of the one from the full game.

I was very excited to play this game, but was not excited to experience a game so hacked up and broken it's virtually unplayable.

This is not an original version of the game. There are missing some scenes and puzzles, the controls are totally different. It is like a mobile version or something and this point the game is a trash on steam. Go to buy an original version somewhere else....

So many puzzle that don't make sense due to some sections of the original game being cut. Try to find the original instead.

If you bought the combo pack like I did, well you have to play it right?
Well for me this version was even more glitchy, the graphics would stop while the voice parts would continue. I had issues solving thee puzzles, the prison, wall of skulls, and the tile puzzle.
It's not really wrorth playing, it's so chopped up and the continious restarting is a pain.
I bouth parts 4 and 5. I guess I shall continue on.

I'd really like to reccomend this game - But the problems it has and the cut scenes / frames of animation missing make this game tough to play on the PC. This is not the original disk version of the game that was released by other publishers instead it's been optimized for tablets and ported over to the PC. The mouse controls run too fast and there is no way to adjust this. The way you advance through some scenes makes it impossible or next to impossible to advance to other areas of the game. It's like you almost have to click through everything in the scene your in just to see if something happens where your character can advance. Some NPC characters in game you interact with have limited amounts of animation, but mostly have speech bubbles with audio voice overs. At least most of the FMV is here. Shame since this is a great game that you may want to play through once more - but only if all the bugs present in this game are gone.

Terrible, nothing like the disk version i had years ago. Steam has done something to it to turn it into trash, the people are not even animated anymore, and the stupid speach bubbles take away from the atmosphere, it feels more like a cartoon now.

Reiterating that this isn't the original version of the game - it's been watered down and rendered pretty much unplayable without following a walkthrough, as the gameplay is jumbled and event triggers are unclear. You'll find yourself tracking down tiny prerequisites you missed a lot. Kind of a hellish experience when dealing with such a linear game, especially considering it's imo one of the most enjoyable point and clicks I remember ever playing, plotwise.

You'd be a lot better off tracking down a disk version of the game.

First off go to gog.com and pick it up there. You can pick up the first 3 of the series for 10$.
Secondly this is a good game you should definately check it out BUT get it from gog.com.

Story is certainly interesting and the graphics aren't half bad, but unfortunately it's a cheap IOS version. This isn't the full game and really waters down the gameplay which makes you really miss out on some key mechanics. I was extremely disappointed to see that this was the case but figured I would stick it out anyway as I had bought on sale. Puzzles, dialogue, and danger have all been cut from this release. There are only 2 areas where you can actually die, but given the system for progress you'll litterally just come back to the moment prior to said demise. As for the gameplay itself it will allude to what you need to do but there were a few moments where I was just entirely lost. Trying to refer to a walkthrough is difficult as they point you to the puzzles that are absent here. There's just too many headaches here to warrant this purchase on steam when you could get the same thing and more from the gog release.

This is a castrated version of the original, probably backported from the mobile.
Nobody makes sense there, as 80% of the content is cut.
Do yourself a favor and buy it elsewhere.

Decent point and click. A lot of the puzzles are cut or altered from the original disc version, and there isn't really a walkthrough for this bootleg steam version.

Though this is also a bit circumcised version of the original game, this is the best game in the trilogy in terms of graphics and playability. The story is as interesting as in the previous parts.

Overall rating 9/10.

Good story though the engine while tweaked some is getting a bit dated, more forgivable in the previous two but they could have pushed more with it in this one. However I found it an enjoyable game none the less
