Only a handful over the past few years have touched the genius of such classics as Grim Fandango or any of LucasArt's great adventure games. Dracula: Origin attempts to fill the void, and it's an admirable effort. With a compelling story, a budget price tag, and largely good puzzles, Dracula: Origin is a great adventure game.
Based off of Bram Stoker's Dracula, you take control of Professor Van Helsing in an attempt to prevent Dracula's demonic plans. It's not fair to just leave it at that, though, because the game weaves a great yarn, full of mystery, surprises, and developments that will keep you drawn to the monitor. The characters are well-developed and well-rounded, making you care more for a situation because of the characters involved in it. Dracula: Origin's greatest strength lies in its story. It's what will keep you continuing on in the adventure."
