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.

  • Conclusion: Despite the criticism that prevent it from realizing its potential, this is by no means a bad game and could serve you well if you’re looking for something new to try. I consider the eight or so hours I spent playing were a reasonable investment of my time.
