Thanks Gameboomers for this excellent discussion. This site is the best for game information and I never make a game purchase without checking here first.

Is it shorter than Yesterday because that one was disappointingly short.

I'm so disappointed - this was a "buy" for me before I read the comments. Shucks, and I was in the mood for a good Dracula game.

I've decided to hold off until a full game is released.
I don't like "episodics" and it sounds like this game has turned out to be one frown
[And I was SO looking forward to it !!]

Same here, Mad. Someone at Mystery Manor played it and was also quite disappointed.

Of interest is that on the casual game website, Gamezebo, the reviewer gave the game five stars. wave

I wonder if the main complaint is just that it was short and if you compare to the originals you feel cheated. If it was a stand alone game with no preconceived notions would it be good? Just a thought.

Evidently that's where the money is in Anuman's view, in casual games for iPad and Android and the like. Quite frankly, I'm avoiding Anuman from now on. As far as I'm concerned, they pulled a fast one on adventure gamers.

Mad, if you're waiting for part two to buy it, odds are you'll be paying for two games, not one, and the price for this game was relatively steep considering the length everyone is reporting.

Ana, is it possible for adventure gamers to have no preconceived notions about the Dracula games? Anuman must have known very well what the reaction from AGs would be.

Cynical? Me?

There is a huge difference in gameplay when playing casual mode or adventure mode. I played the game in adventure mode first and took me on 6 hours to complete without any help. Then playing in casual mode took me under 2 hours as all the markers show where everything is. The hardest puzzle is the lock pick one as it is strictly trial and error, whereas all the other puzzles are pure logic. Yes, some women do have logic. As far as a score goes, I would rate the game as a 2 out of 5. It has some good features but there are many more bad ones.

Yes, I had thought of that, traveler, and it will be another factor I'll be taking into account lol

Yikes... I was so looking forward to playing this game. I had been waiting for this sequel since D3.

I saw the trailer and was impressed by it initially. That impression quickly faded after reading this thread and after learning that the game was being featured and reviewed at Gamezebo.

Has this been turned into a casual game?

I guess I will just have to wait for a full review of this game by a legit adventure game site (**hint, hint**)!

What happened? Was this a production budget cut?
