Conclusion: Love & Death: Bitten risks being an unfortunate victim of the very genre it intends to capitalise on, as its gravity is lessened by its girl-meets-vampire storyline, and some who would otherwise love to sink their teeth into a substantial casual adventure might give it a pass based on its trite premise. But it’s a game that should definitely not be judged by the box cover, for within lies one of the most well-designed and slickly-produced lite adventure hybrids to date.
Excerpt: There's a new vamp in town, so Edward from Twilight, Bill and Eric from True Blood and the Salvatore brothers from Vampire Diaries need to make room! A new casual type game from Play First introduces us to Damon, and no not Damon Salvatore but a man cursed by a witch (Celeste) to live life as a blood sucking vampire. There is hope for him and it comes in the form of a woman from the village he is terrorizing.
Conclusion: Despite it's shortcomings, the overall experience that Love & Death provides is great. It features challenging and varied gameplay and some solid production values, including beautiful visuals and some great voice acting. It also weaves an engaging, albeit brief, tale and introduces a pair of characters that you'll eventually come to care about. And once it gets its fangs into you, you'll be trapped under Love & Death's spell for good.
