Vampire Legends 2 is based on a true story, obviously the story of Elizabeth Bathory, one of the world’s vilest serial killers with a vampire-like character. When it comes to Elizabeth Bathory, we expected a dark and creepy story – and the game did not disappoint. Vampire Legends 2 delivered in terms of intriguing storyline and complex plot; regardless of the complexity, Vampire Legends 2 was easy to follow and never confused us. Besides, we were impressed by the fact that each character in the game had its own unique personality, which made them easy to distinguish.
Presentation wise, Vampire Legends 2 is a little unusual. We found the graphics to be a little old-fashioned and washed out, although this is an improvement upon the graphics of the first game. We understand that the developers were trying to create realistic environment, with photographic-like locations; but really, the game would have been much more appealing if the graphics were sharper and the colors brighter. However, we enjoyed the creepy atmosphere and the eerie environment of the game. In contrast to the game’s realistic and dark locations, the characters look cartoonish which made the game a little odd at times. We had nothing against the soundtracks and voice overs, they were great in their own rights.
Vampire Legends: The Untold Story of Elizabeth Bathory was not packed with fancy features and unique bonuses; still, we were thoroughly entertained playing the game. It might be because the flow of the game was so smooth that we barely noticed the time passing by. Apart from the hand-drawn interactive map, custom difficulty mode and a diary – the game contained two other slightly innovative features. Psychic Powers to reveal hidden spots and a potion-mixing wagon. The hidden object scenes were fine, nothing really special about them. The puzzles were not very creative either, but they did come with a nice range of difficulty.
