Summary: I thought this game was pretty good. Graphics were nice. Scenes were well drawn and items appropriate for the era. Even the animation in the cut scenes, although simple, were good and it enhanced the atmosphere of the game. The music choice, ambient sound, effects and animation were alright and they didn't disappoint. The voice acting were ok too. I found lots of players love to nitpick on the voice acting but this one was alright, nothing annoying.
Summary: Pros: Moody, atmospheric graphics and audio; good puzzles and tasks; great story; replayable Cons: Spotty voiceovers; "Hallelujah" sound effect; excruciatingly tiny objects I was pleasantly surprised to see they completely re-recorded the voiceovers from their 'word for word' bad localization in the beta, to excellent, well spoken language, one could actually understand. The actor who portrayed the protagonist was excellent, however most of the others...not so much.
Summary: I really, really, REALLY wanted to love this game. I was totally ready to, too - it promised to be spooky without being as gory as the "Redrum" series, maybe a little adventurous, just all-around fun. The voice acting - as the main review indicated - was a bit up and down; I *adored* the lead actor's voice, but found the others a bit... overwrought. "High school Dracula production" indeed fits; so does "AmDram," sad to say.
