That is particularly well done, Jenny. Very fair and a gives a good feel for the game. It's still going to be a pass for me unless the price comes down.

Thanks very much for the excellent review, Jenny100 thumbsup

I, too though, am holding off for the present.
I'd like to know how many "parts" this game has before I consider buying it rolleyes

Thank you, everyone.

I agree it was disappointingly short.
Unfortunately I don't know if it's intended to be an episodic series or whether this is Part 1 of a two-parter.
I hope the next installment is longer.

Jenny, I know you play casual games as well as adventure games, and this has led to a very well-balanced review. thumbsup wave

Thanks, Marian.
It actually plays a lot like the Kheops games.
The puzzle types are similar.

Thanks, Jenny. Nicely written review.

Before reading your review, I must say that I have very mixed feelings about this game. The impression I got from reading the review at Gamezebo was very different from the one I got from reading the review at Adventure Classic Gaming. Even though the latter is an adventure focused game site, I was a bit unsure if that review properly reflects the impression of someone who may not have played any of the previous Dracula games.

I am glad to see that the GameBoomers review is more inline with the latter than the former review. Both of the reviews complain how short the game is and emphasize the game's casual elements. Plus, it just amazes me that both reviews clocked the game to last the EXACT same length of play time (6 hours)!

Very informative, Jenny!

You're welcome, everyone.

DaveHT,
I got the impression that the AdventureClassicGaming reviewer was a fan of the previous Dracula games in this series, while the Gamezebo reviewer hadn't played them (or other adventure games other than casual adventures).

I am certain you are right Jenny. The guy who did the review for adventureclassicgaming also did the review for Dracula 3. So he is qualified to make a comparison between the 2 games. He also did a great walk through for Dracula 3 as well.
