Summary: The story was really good and I couldn't wait for the next game but who knows when that will ever happen. The graphics are wonderful and you get to use some of your Vampyre powers (think biting). A couple of the puzzles were ridiculously hard though. The biggest problem with the game was programming bugs, where if you did a certain event before another the game would get stuck. That was really annoying so be aware of that.
Summary: Not a real good game to play because of the way you use the controls to play. The graphics are good but those arrow keys just don't work for me. Also the strategy guide is hard to get to during game play.
Caveat Emptor: This Is A Classic Point-and-Click Adventure Game

Summary: I REALLY like classic point-and-click adventure games, and I think that this game is one of the best to come out in recent years. The artwork is superb, the puzzles are logical, and there actually IS a plot. From the ending, this is obviously a two-part game - which may account for some complaints that the game is too short; however, Part 1 had enough gameplay for me.
Summary: All i can say is ( its about time ) ..finally..we have an adventure game that hits on every cylinder.Amazing cartoon graphics and cut scenes...a story that has you hooked line and sinker.Great puzzles...that bring me back to the thoughts of monkey island...hours and hours of fun.. this is an instant classic, i cant wait for part 2....this is a must buy for any adventurer..
Didn't care for it; beautiful to look at but tiresome to slog through.

Summary: Though the game was very attractively drawn and rendered, I was disappointed in Vampyre Story, primarily due to the dialogue and limited number of scenes. Clearly the design team was on the top of their game with the rich colors and nicely done artwork. But I found the game frustrating, and often, annoying for the following reasons: - Irritating dialogue: the scripting was meant to be comedic and goofy, but ended up just being plain tedious to get through, with old &...
Summary: Overall the game is really good on all levels but was extremely disapointed about how short the game was! It was too quick both me and my kids were diapointed. If I would have know I would have bought it second hand!
Summary: Vampyre Story is an adventure point and click game. The artwork is superb and the music is very good too. The spooky surroundings are wonderful to explore.There are tons of tasks that you have to be super creative to figure out. Try all options and talk to everyone. This game has a unique interface where you point on something and have a choice of four options: speak, touch, fly to, and examine, this makes the game very easy to play.Your items are also displayed in a...
Summary: This game is fun, creative, and witty. I absolutely loved every minute of it. The game is in the style of Monkey Island, so fans of those games have something new to try out. The comedic humor in this game should appeal to anyone. The only con to this game is that its very short, it took me only six hours to finish only to find out later that there is a Chapter two planned.
Summary: For an old time fan of Monkey Island, Vampyre Story scratches a very old itch just in the right place. While filled with warts (and vampires, and bats, and dungeons...) the game's quality shines through minor imperfections and makes it a must have for fans of quirky humor and "adventure games." I will start with a few negative points about the game to clear them out of the way.
