VGChartz's Jackson Newsome: "I commend the developers at DontNod for revisiting vampire lore and the sincerity with which they nod to the classic horror subgenre. Their take on an early 20th Century London is sufficiently compelling, and I enjoyed exploring the world and meeting all the strange and mysterious faces along the way. Vampyr unabashedly travels down a well-worn path, and it mostly works in an era in which game developers are prone to crafting crossovers (e.g., blending the historical past and science-fiction) rather than spinning straightforward genre tales. I only wish Vampyr had arrived in a more refined package. It will satisfy fans of the genre, but if you weren’t convinced just by looking at the game’s title, Vampyr might be a tough sell."
