Put together the names of Van Helsing and Brad Stoker in the same sentence could only result in the main subject matter being that of Dracula. In this case Dracula is the central character in a game developed by Frogware Studios. Entitled Dracula:...

At the end of my blood soaked adventure, I have found a title that both embraces the story upon which it is based and makes it new again. The creative minds at Frogwares have once again created a work of art and I can only wait to see what they come...

Dracula lives on and on. He is retooled for new generations and tastes, but the core material is strictly within Bram Stoker’s novel. Dracula: Origins by the title, leads one to think that they are going to do the game using the book as a compass....

This is a well-assembled journey through Dracula’s world, notwithstanding the fact that the Count himself – for the first half of the game at least – barely makes an appearance in the, er, flesh. But overall it’s bloody good fun,...

Dr. Van Helsing, one of gothic literature’s most intriguing and adventurous characters, is challenged with tasks more appropriate for an ambitious civil servant than a legendary vampire hunter in Dracula: Origin, a point-and-click adventure from...

Dracula Origin is just another one of those adventures that you’ll either give up on after being stuck on yet another puzzle for too long or you’ll almost certainly scour the net for a walkthrough. I’m certainly not assuming that...

Although its a frequently visited legend, theres still plenty to enjoy in this good-looking, entertaining and frequently challenging adventure game that manages to inject a healthy dose of humour and spookiness along the way. Ascaron - Dracula:...

Known for its Sherlock Holmes series, independent developer Frogwares has certainly been keeping busy with adventures games. The latest in its lineup is Dracula: Origin, a new adventure based off the epistolary novel Dracula by Bram Stoker written...

There's no argument to be had; fanged undead, satanic blood rites, unholy castles, and ancient evil makes for some gripping storytelling. In 1897, Bram Stoker perfected the formula with his original gothic tale of vampirism and seduction - after...

It's heartening to know that a few companies out there still carry the torch of "pure" adventure games - a genre, in its "point and click" form, which has fallen on hard times in North America . Developer Frogware, responsible for...

International Review By GameElite on 80

Världen är full av vampyrer - romaner, filmer och vampyrhybrider. Nu kommer Dracula: Origin där du söker Draculas ursprung. I en värld full av vampyrromaner, vampyrfilmer, vampyrhybrider och vampyrinspirerade frukostflingor så är det svårt att hitta...

International Review By FZ.se on 40

Ett gotiskt äventyrsspel med vampyrtema, kan det vara något? Ja, gillar du pussel framför en engagerande story och står ut med en del skavanker kanske Dracula: Origin vara din kopp te. Frogwares är ett litet irländskt spelföretag som med en dåres...

International Review By Level 7 on -

Dracula: Origin är ännu ett äventyrsspel av ”peka och klicka”-modell som är utvecklat i centrala Europa. Det lite stela konceptet känns igen. Grafiken är i huvudsak förrenderad och livlös, men ändå levande i de viktiga detaljerna och överlag...

International Review By Gamezoom.net on 70

Blade war cool, Van Helsing ebenso, doch die guten alten Dracula Filme sind ebenso Kult wie Frankenstein. Dracula: Origin schafft es leider nicht das Gänsehautflair ordentlich in seine Adventure-Story einzuflechten. Auch wenn teilweise sehr gute...

International Review By Clubic on 60

Dracula : Origin remplit sa mission sans grand panache, mais comme il faut et dans les règles de lart. Le joueur se retrouve plongé dans une histoire qui ne parvient jamais à limmerger complètement, mais qui reste suffisamment intéressante. Sa...
