Dracula: Origin

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Dracula: Origin is a great example of what is good and bad about the adventure genre. It's well presented, incorporates some intriguing puzzles and actually involves a good deal of thinking. It's also repetitive, obtuse, and frustrating with game mechanics that seem a little dated. However, Frogware has ensured that the good just about outweighs the bad and Dracula: Origin would be a welcome addition to any point-and-click fan's collection.

  • Conclusion: Neversoft has tweaked the World Tour formula for the better, and mixed some Metallica in. The game is a treasure trove of Metallica history for fans and it is evident that Neversoft put a lot of heart and soul into making this title. For those who long to be the Master of Puppets, I can’t recommend this title enough, as Guitar Hero: Metallica is the best band branded game of its kind.

  • Excerpt: Dracula: Origin is a point and click adventure in the traditional vein. If you've played one of these types of games in the last, say, twenty years, then you've got a pretty good idea of what to expect. Everything that you either love or hate about these types of games is present in this one, so with all that aside it comes down to the quality of the story and puzzles.

Dracula: Origin

Adventure Classic Gaming
8 August 2008
  • Excerpt: With its 2007 release of Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened, Frogwares has proven itself capable of producing chilling, cerebral horror games with exceptional production and gameplay. Now, a year later, can Frogwares deliver an equally unique experience with its next horror game, Dracula: Origin? Like Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened, Dracula: Origin features rich, moody music and somber, detailed scenes (though in the form of 2D rather than real-time 3D backdrops).

  • Excerpt: “Do you believe in destiny? That even the powers of time can be altered for a single purpose? That the luckiest man who walks upon this earth is the one who finds... True love?” One of my favorite stories has to be Bram Stoker’s epistolary novel: Dracula . A gothic tale of an antihero, told through diary entries and letters of a young barrister, Jonathan Harker.

  • Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: Dracula: Origin , by Frogwares (a company that recently released several great Sherlock Holmes games), does a great job of portraying the time and feel of 19th century London and really sells the Bram Stoker-esque style. Everywhere from Cairo to Vienna and, of course, Transylvania comes through gorgeously in their pre-rendered 2D landscapes. Each location has its own unique visual feel and bright London looks very different from gloomy Transylvania.

Bloody Good Adventuring

16 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Dracula Origin promises to bring the player to the heart of evil, letting you understand why the one known as the premiere monster of modern legend came to fall from grace. Surprisingly, Dracula Origin falls short in this promise. However, the combination of strong puzzles, beautiful graphics and a chilling if somewhat cliché plot makes this game an instant classic, even if it fails to really break new ground in the Dracula legend.
