    Hey Everyone, I wanted to finish the game before giving a review so now that I have finished it, here goes: The game is a lot of fun for the powers and combat. I like how the game gives you choices throughout the storyline. The missions are interesting at some points but I started to feel like all the battles were just fillers. I went the evil path and it was VERY easy to defeat all the bosses with the powers I leveled up. Some people online have said it is harder for the final boss if you are majorly leveled up but I found that wasn’t the case. I found it was relatively easy and never even used the health/stamina/blood syringes that you can create for a boost. I was really surprised. Maybe it will be harder for a “good” play through? Anyways, the critics are correct that there are glitches at some points during the game and the loading screens can be ridiculous in length and bountiful. Other than that, it wasn’t bad. I don’t have an internet connection so I didn’t download the updates/patches so my game probably was one of the few lucky vanilla versions to escape the bad glitches of freezing frames and game crashes. The conversations can get a little bit tedious as you are playing but it was interesting to hear about the characters stories. Maybe wait a little bit to buy until they fix all of the glitches the game has. Unless you get lucky like me, install the game and play offline the whole time making sure you don’t connect your console to the internet until you are done playing the game.

    I had really high hopes for this game. I won’t say that I’m disappointed but I will say I’m not totally impressed. The storyline is great. The combat is mediocre so far. The graphics should and could be a lot better considering it’s 2018.... At the same time I have a love for vampires and third person hack and slash games... As I am leveling up I am enjoying the game more and more there is not much explanation in the beginning of the game nor are there tutorials so it took me a while to get the hang of everything but I think the game is going to get better and better and I still do you have hopes to fall in love with it.

    This game was created from the same developers who worked on Life is Strange. Its a cool game that lasted about 25-30 hours for me which included completing about 60% of the sidequests. The story is interesting but the gameplay can be tough especially if you try not to kill any of the important NPC’s. The fighting system is a bit clunky but doable. It was definitely fun to juggle as to who to kill or leave as is to complete their sidequests fully.

    An average game at best

    Vampyr had a shot at being an amazing game but this sleeper hit unfortunately comes up as rather average. The AI is as dumb as a rock, and the interactions with people tend to drone on. So much so that it’s hard to distinguish one NPC from the next. Found the game more of a chore to play than enjoyable. Only get it if it’s on sale. Wouldn’t recommend the 60.00 tag on this one

    So far, I have about 10 hours into this game. It has a strong and compelling story line, as well as characters that I believe are going to be well developed. The only drawback that I can think of would be the complicated interaction system that plays out in the character background screen. This is a good game if you are not a fan of multiplayer online games.

    A Beautiful & Immersive RPG

    If you're into exploring immersive environments, talking to characters through dialogue trees, making choices that have consequences, etc., you'll enjoy your time with Vampyr. That said, I did notice how this game pushes politics sorta like Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus did, so if you don't enjoy having that kinda stuff shoved down your throat, be aware of it.

    A Great Vampire Game

    Great Story, Great Graphics, but the combat system leaves much to be desired. If you don't kill and feed you'll be weak, but if you feed on the wrong people it can make gameplay harder but they claim it helps you. The vampire hunters in game are too overpowered no matter what level you are, and they can be annoying at times. Otherwise, this is a great game!

    Not what you expect

    Seeing the previews, thought Vampyr was going to be good and unique. Once you boot it up, you find out quickly that only half the game was carefully put together, and the rest rushed out the door. This game had so much potential, and promised a lot but ultimately did not deliver. That said, it's worth a pick up if you found it interesting.
