This game is HORRIBLE!
I got this game knowing full well that it would be bad but wanted to experience exactly HOW bad this game is and let me tell you, it blew me away. The voice acting is horrible, the graphics are horrible, the gameplay is horrible, and its pretty much impossible to kill anybody and you're dead with just two hits. To add insult to injury with the two hit death system, the first hit you take will knock you down and the vampire always hits you a second time before you get a chance to recover. For those of you familiar with the Angry Video Game Nerd, he once said that Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was the worst game ever made but Vampire Rain takes the cake. This game is nothing more than an impossible Splinter Cell clone that should have never been released.
Find it Cheap!!
OK, so are we spoiled in our country or what??? I have to disagree slightly with the other reviews. I bought this game with low expectations and it didn't let me down... But, the ranking for each level is cool. The stealth isn't as good as splinter cell, but it's o.k. and there are cool cut scenes and story line is o.k. I've spent Two afternoons playing it and actually had some fun! Recomendation...if you find it very cheap, get it and play it for what it is... a very ave game! Don't be too critical and you just might enjoy this game. Go through and re-do the levels and try to improve your score that might give the game more replayability. The graphics in the cut scenes are pretty good and the voice overs are ok. A 4.0 isn't too much to give this game, come on now!! where's the love?
this game sucks! (DO NOT BUY)
This LOOKS like a really awesome game but let me be the first to tell you that looks don't mean anything to me anymore. When I bought this game I thought "wow this is the horror game that I have been waiting for", lol boy was I wrong. When I first brought it home what I didn't realize was that I would be going right back to gamestop to get my refund. This is by far one of the worst games I have ever played. For one its to dark and you cant see to do anything, and the biggest problem is if you are attacked in the game you cant defend your self thats why it is just impossible to beat! To me it was like they just went and took Splinter Cell and put him right in the middle of a game he did not even belong. I would absolutely NOT recommend this game! Who ever made this game should have spent more time on the game play instead of trying to make it look good in advertisements.
They let this game on the shelves??
Alright, so for those who have never played this game. Take...villains from Buffy The Vampire Slayer, crank an endless amount of speed in them, and then throw in some Metal Gear Solid & Silent Hill 1 in there. And your outcome is a game that is graphically ugly and dull. This is immorally hard. You sneak around boring buildings to rescue your team. Oh but I also forgot to add the twist of that board game, "Don't Wake Daddy". Because if you do wake "Daddy" (the vampires) they run at you with the acceleration of a top fuel dragster. Once they grab you, you might as well hit the reset button because it's near impossible to get them off. And don't bother shooting them with your assault rifle, because it takes a minimum of 3,956,384 bullets to kill them. Now for the music...now i don't know who they gave the responsibility of the music to, but it's as boring as surrounding yourself with TV's and put nothing on but Olympic Curling, Martha Stewart, the Golf Channel, and Rosanne on repeat. The storyline is confusing, you're limited on where you may go, the dialogue is atrocious, the controls are hard, and it's raining constantly. So only play it if you're miserable, depressed, and the government has banned all other games.
worst game ever made
I have owned playstations, nintendos and xbox's. I owned this game. Horrible. it seems impossible to beat. IMPOSSIBLE to beat. Vampires are too fast and too strong. Bullets dont do anything to them. Save your money for a game worth buying. It is not only incredibly difficult but also incredibly boring and annoying. The graphics looks like a PS1 game, sound is tacky like an old computer game and controls are not all that great. This is an EPIC FAIL on the designers and microsoft. the designers for the game and microsoft allowing it on their system. Is it just me or is the name and the cover the coolest part of the whole game?I hate that is is constantly raining and always dark. I mean come on really? what is that about. I would rather play with dry dog poo than this game. probably more entertaining.
No, just no0o0
I played this with a friend, it was by far the most disappointing title ever played. the controls are sloppy and there seems to be no story really. the vampires are extremely difficult to kill and you will find yourself upset, raged, and ready to return it. they will kill you, over, and over and over again..... there could have been potential, but u can try it out for 7 days and return it, who knows u might like it.
not as bad as alot think
this game is not as bad as people think as you can see by my seven. this game is purley ment to be a stealth game meaning that if your spotted your dead. but still the gameplay is pretty good sure its a ripoff of Splinter Cell when your going over ladders and shimmying drainage pipes but they are so half assed you dont even notice that it is a ripoff of it. the sound is not as bad as people say i dident mind the music and it kind of helps with the mood of the game it even has the sound of the rain hitting the floor all the time thats nice. Graphicly the game is not going to be what you would expect for all you spoild gamers who feel like all games need to have call of duty or Halo graphics your just snobs this game was not a very high budget game and it was made by a small company so give them a break they tried! saddly most of the acheivments come from online play and there is no one playing it online anyways so your screwed out of the acheivments there and you wont find yourself going back to it mutch after you have done your first playthrough so you might as well beat it get through the story quickly and take it back. but in all tis game is not as bad as you may think you just have to expect a completely stealth game and have to enjoy that genra to enjoy Vampire Rain
i second the other review. one of the worst games ever. extremely linear and very tough to play. i expected something like vampire the masquerade: bloodlines. if you want a vampire pc game, go with that. for now 360 has no decent vampire games. in this game you have to sneak up on every vampire and i don't mean in a sam fisher way. any deviation from what the 360 deems the correct action ends in death. again and again and again. i have died more in this game than any other game. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!! whoever approved this game no doubt has lost their job.if you want sneaky games, just go get splinter cell. it's very cheap now and even the first splinter cell makes this game look like it was meant to live it's life out as a drink coaster. this game had sooo much potential. rarely do i wish that someone got fired, this game is unforgivable. it really is that bad.
Worst game I've ever played!
Annoyingly challenging! It should of been designed with the option to shoot the vampires up with no mercy, even if they wanted to incorporate stealth into the game. At least allow the gamer the chance to kill off these less than graceful zombie vampires! The designers dictated when you get to kill, which just made the game more frustrating. Check it out, but just be prepared to slam the controller down in frustration, multiple times! LOL!
I have played Vampire Rain on an import verison, and the game has extermely fun gameplay. It has a lot of stealth action, and the vampires move very quickly. It is a very fun game.
