Summary: I am adding to my review. I emailed Dreamcatcher Games about problems with older games not working on the XP. I was sent back dirctions which, at least for Dracula Resurrection, work! 1. Insert game into CDROM drive 2. Click Start, and then My Computer 3. Right-click on the CD-ROM drive and select OPEN 4. Locate the Install file (usually named Setup.exe or Install.exe. Right click on it. Select Properties. 5. In Properties window, click on the Compatibility tab. 6.
Summary: This wasn't a very challenging game. I did have to use a walkthrough a few times, but only because the graphics were a little too dark for me to see some items. The characters were very creepy, almost disgusting. But overall, for the price, it was Ok to play. I plan on purchasing the sequel, Last Sanctuary.
A traditional PC game and a great starter. No, not scary!

Summary: The cover and title are misleading. This series, there is more than one, is a great series with which to start one's pc gaming experience. Much is traditional in movement and puzzles. Violence? Not really! Just fun and mystery. As a former educator, I'd recommend this for 13 and above. Killing about 3+ creatures is about as violent as it gets. Gore? Not really. Some fascinating, creepy but beautiful women are presented, if I remember correctly.
Summary: My nightmare...my dream. This is a fantastic game, it's filled with hours of everything a real horror game should contend. The producers has really used the best way to evolve the gaphics over the years, and the final result of years of production, this is the final result. Story: 10/10 The story starts seven years after Jonathan defeated Dracula, but as time went by Mina, Jonathans fionce develops and feel the need to return to the castle, but what they didn't know was...
Summary: Mina has returned to Transylvania. You, as Jonathan Harker, must follow her and save her from Dracula. Explore a dark forest, find your way through a mine and a castle full of traps and unknown chambers. Puzzles and riddles will slow you down (kind of), as you work your way closer to saving your wife and defeating the Prince of Darkness. Well, not really. Some of the puzzles are very easy, while others seem VERY hard.
Summary: I have solved both dracual games now.i definately think resurrection is easier than the last sanctuary.I like sanctuary a little better but i thought the graphics in resurrection might get the edge.I give sanctuary 4 stars and resurrection 3 stars.I liked how certain parts of resurrection were also seen in sanctuary like the mine,the cemetery,and the courtyard at dracula's castle.I have several computer games and will get more.I have solved king's quest-mask of...
Summary: This game is like a "paint by numbers"! An arrow tells you where to go. You can't wander around...you "frame" around. I like to get into a game, run around, peak around corners, hold weapons and spells, fight off enemies, gain power sources etc. This game lost me within the first 5 minutes. I don't like being limited to movement by the arrows. Maybe I want to look at something across the way..
Summary: For a Dracula story I expect some gore, horror, and some action. I got only a fair amount of each. Though fun to play, it could have been considerably better. I wasn't impressed by the graphics and the story line did not live up to potential. Once again, I would have to say that it was worth the money even though it fell short in some areas.
