Summary: I decided to come back and play this original game before playing the new release in the series. I can honestly say that I wasn't disappointed that I did. HOURS of play, good Lord I lost track of the hours. After years of playing games of this type, I rate them by if I have to look for a walkthrough to figure it out. For me this is the #1 sign I've found a great game. PROS: -Graphics were beautiful and held up crystal clear on my large monitor.
Summary: This is the best game I've ever played, over the newly released PC games, or xBox games, whatever it may be. The graphics are amazing, and the story plot is too. This game does take a very long time to complete, but I just love this.
Summary: I thoroughly enjoyed this game. I agree with the gamezebo review that too much time was spent looking for objects (I didn't see the tip to hit the spacebar to illuminate all of the interactive objects until the game was over). However, the gamezebo review also criticized the puzzles for being too cryptic. I really really like it when the puzzles are bizarre. It took me a while to even figure out what the moving parts were on some of them.
Summary: Before Dracula Origin, the last adventure games I had played were in the "King's Quest" series back in the 80s and 90s. I adored them, but after Sierra stopped making them and I couldn't find anything else similar, I gradually lost interest in computer games. I stumbled upon this game by accident while searching for something online, and became intrigued by the screenshots and positive reviews. When I started playing the game, I was not disappointed.

Summary: I just recently bought this game. I played all the way through it and must say it was awesome. It had everything in it. Horror, Adventure, Suspense, Mystery. I gave this game 5 stars because It had good graphics, had no bugs, Played nice, had short load times, an was just plain awesome. If your a fan of adventure games like I am I highly recommend this one.
Summary: Dracula:Origin is a beautiful graphic experience. You're immersed in environments that are moody, spooky, and somber and sometimes strangely and eerily and somehow inappropriately sunlit, too. (Sunny Cairo with monstrous activities hidden beneath the sand). We swish along with the quick- striding Van Helsing in his long black coat, running to keep up as he undertakes his complicated and arduous search for the Vampire. This is a three CD search, quirky,and unpredictable.
Summary: I've been looking at this game for awhile. Not knowing if I could play it or not, I kind of hesitated on buying it. Recently, I was in our local Walmart and this game was on the cheap rack ($9+). I bought it. Boy, was I in for a surprise. This game is awesome. It is a huge adventure game starring my favorite villain. He's not in it much, but that was not an issue with me.
Summary: I must have had this game for about three months before I decided to install and play it. My husband bought it for me because the packaging and illustrations (screen caps) seemed very promising, and because I just can't get enough when it comes to vampires and Count Dracula. I had a day off from work and was looking for something to do, since the weather outside was cold and rainy, and saw this game sitting idly on my shelf. Intrigued, I installed it and got to playing.
