Gamezine Review: A Vampyre Story

Chris Capel:

"There's a group of people who have been looking forward to this game, and they're fans of old LucasArts adventures.

For the deprived individuals who don't know anything about these adventure games, they were peerless examples of storytelling, humour, music and gameplay all wrapped in one tight package. They included such classics as Grim Fandango, Sam & Max Hit The Road, Day of the Tentacle and the Monkey Island quadrilogy.

Most of the talent behind these games were fired by LucasArts, spawning studios such as Telltale (Sam & Max, Strong Bad), Double Fine (Psychonauts, Brutal Legend), Crackpot (Insecticide), and Autumn Moon (A Vampyre Story). Out of all of them, the only full-length adventure game, like the ones made at LucasArts, is this one – A Vampyre Story.

The game tells the tale of Mona, an opera singer-come-vampire in denial, as she attempts to escape the Draxylvanian castle she's imprisoned in and get to Paris to pursue her singing career." (A Vampyre Story, PC) 7.5/10
