    FULL REVIEW: https://wp.me/p4T35p-g8k Story Dontnod calls Vampyr a AA production. While true that the game has rough spots, its overall polish is greater than several AAA titles seen this year. I expect nothing less than stellar of Dontnod when it comes to writing. They have a knack for creating an entire world for their games worthy of the silver screen. Vampyr mixes real world history with traditional vampire lore and creates something fresh. Even issues of race are touched upon. I was really happy to see things like that were not shied away from. London's mysteries wait to be unraveled and you will enjoy the experience. Gameplay While doing nothing new, Vampyr employs a gameplay design befitting the action RPG genre. You cannot run into combat Rambo-style and expect to survive. strategizing before and during combat will yield the best results. I would have like a bit more stealth as you are a creature of the shadows. The gameplay does employ a fair amount of talking; do not mistake this as a pure action title. The talking goes a long way for player immersion as you will truly feel the lives you may be taking. Graphics & Sound The graphics are one of the few cavities in the teeth of Vampyr. Fight animation is smooth, level and character design are great, but some areas just look dated. The in-game visuals also do not live up to those of cutscenes, giving a very PS3/360 feel. PC will obviously look better, but you will still be able to see flaws like wobbly characters during conversation. The music and voice acting are both top notch, but loading can interfere with music. There is also the sticking point that NPCs may repeat dialogue and make no sense. For example, Nurse Crane repeats the same dialogue outside your office as when she first welcomes you to Pembroke. Thankfully, that is about as much as I can report in terms of bugs or glitches. Bottom Line: If you game on PC, PS4 or Xbox One, Vampyr should be in your collection.

    Intriguing Story

    Vampyr is a dark dramatic story of a doctor turned vampire in turn of the century London, where the player gets to choose how the story unfolds for our character. Will you keep the Hippocratic oath and try to save as many lost souls as you can or will you give in to your newfound powers and feed on the citizens of the city. The story and the characters are both well executed and unique the only flaws I see with the game are; combat is a little simplified for a game of this play-style and you are unable to fast-travel across the relatively large map. All in all good game, and anyone looking for a more story driven game where your choices carry weight and stay with you throughout the game I recommend trying this game out.

    Vampyr is a tremendous achievement considering the budget developers, DONTNOD Entertainment, had to work with. The graphics I would say are a solid 7.5 with faces being more around 8.5/9. It's London and the environment portrayed in Vampyr that makes the game shine visually. The story is engaging and forces the player to make meaningful decisions that hold consequences. The dialogue with citizens within the game can begin to be too much at times, but the information and knowledge gained on them is interesting and intriguing enough that I went through full interactions with them to get the most information I could. Overall, it is a great single player story based experience that one should not pass on.

    This is a very fun vampire game, which we don't get a lot of these days. The story is great and choices always matter which I really like. The ending or endings aren't that great but everything leading up to it is. The gameplay is fun if a little chunky as is the combat which can be hard to get use to but I ended up enjoying it after awhile. The graphics are passable nothing special but get the job done. Then there's the voice acting which I would say is great for the most part, and which parts are bad are at least funny. A game which has problems buy I couldn't help but enjoy to the fullest, overall a package I must recommend.

    Vampire Style Dark Souls Game

    This game has a dark souls style feel with a little twist. The combat while exciting is not as intesne as Dark Souls though. If you level up your character accordingly, the game is not near as hard. With that said, the level up and combat system is fun. The storyline is unique but some of the dialogue is a little too long. Overall it is a fun game.

    One of the more interesting games out there in today's market. An RPG based in London about a vampire, whom, ironically is a blood specialist surgeon. The game has amazing visuals in a gritty, dark London. The game play is a little tricky to master but is loads of fun when you know the controls. Get it while you wait for other amazing releases.

    If you love playing games like Vampire: The Masquerade and wish to have a similar gameplay experience then this game may be up your ally. There is no season pass or dlc outside of the pre order weapons and clothes planned so it's a complete game from the moment you purchase it physically or digitally, you get the full game on disc.

    I had such high hopes for this game because there hasn't been a good fantasy/non shooter game out for PS4 since Witcher 3, and I was so let down by Vampyr. The story line is so bland and the whole game is so choppy and short and it made no sense. There was a serious lack of development for this game. I'll be returning it asap.
