Dracula 3: Path of the Dragon
Game Over Online
10 October 2015
Excerpt: Dracula 3: The Path of the Dragon is yet another point-and-click adventure inspired by Bram Stoker’s Dracula . We seem to get one of these adventures every year. In fact, there have been so many Dracula adventures that I’m not even sure which ones this entry is supposed to be a sequel to.
Excerpt: Despite sounding like an 8-bit shooter, Microids put out a catalogue of adventure games with engrossing and unusual storylines and detailed characters, and I'm pleased to report that Dracula 3 is no exception.
Excerpt: Set in Romania/Transylvania at the end of World War I, this point and click adventure features logic puzzles that are actually logical, an engaging storyline, good graphics and great voice acting, making for a solid game, even if you’re not a fan of bloodsuckers.
Excerpt: Foreword Bram Stoker’s Dracula didn’t invent the vampire legend, but it certainly gave it literary life. Anyone familiar with the book will be aware that the story is built up by using diary extracts, letters, telegrams, newspaper articles, medical reports and the like.
Excerpt: Although Dracula 3: The Path of the Dragon is releasing only a few months after Frogware’s Dracula Origins, this Kheops developed and Encore/Microids published adventure is actually the latest in the series that came out for PC back in the early 2000’s.
Excerpt: Dracula lives again! Kheops Studio and Microids have joined effort to resurrect the character of Dracula created by Bram Stoker in 1897. The third title of the Dracula series follows Dracula: Resurrection (2000) and Dracula 2: The Last Sanctuary (2001).
Summary: Sometimes we spend minutes at the feet of Capt. Maverick as he tells us of the very first computer games. He told me of how, in the first days of the computer, there were no graphics and only words, and how the very first game he played on a computer was an adventure game about dungeons and you...
Conclusion: I clocked in at roughly eight and a half hours of game time, and while somewhat short, its length ensures the game does not overstay its welcome. Instead, you’ll probably be looking forward to more in another sequel, which certainly seems possible at this game’s conclusion.
Dracula 3: The Path of the Dragon is dreary and dated.
29 August 2008
Summary: Dracula again? Vampire fatigue is a legitimate feeling that you might encounter when ripping open the shrink-wrap of Dracula 3: The Path of the Dragon, given that it seems like Bram Stoker's infamous creature of the night has already been the focus of a lot of adventure games.
Pros: The story is an interesting idea, even if it isn't successfully realized
Cons: Dreary and tedious puzzles, Offbeat storyline drops the gothic touches that make vampire tales so spooky
