Dracula: The Path of the Dragon - Part 1
warning this is not the original dracula 3: path of the dragon broken up into 3 parts
The original game is Dracula 3: the path of the dragon, I bought this thinking BF had just chopped that game into 3 parts (this game being the first part)I don't know if this was made/changed for an ipad etc version. But everything interesting in the original game has been taken out - most interactions, things to do.
I was so disappointed, especially after looking at the walkthrough for the original game, I think it would have been an excellent game with those additions. But this version - I would leave alone and look elsewhere for the original unedited game - dracula 3:path of the dragon (if you can get it to work) BF I think used to have it, as one original game but now they don't. (maybe it was due to tech problems running it on modern computers?)
This version is fine tech wise (I am on windows 7 nvidia card)
SPOILER ON THINGS MISSING FROM THIS GAME
In one of the puzzles, in the dispensary, there was a cutscene and I felt like I was missing something. And I am sadly right. In this new game, you don't use the pipettes for a mini game and the sample slides. Also you didn't have to pick up and find a funnel. There was no gypsy to play mini games. (this is just a small example of the differences)

Big Fish Needs to Just Delete This Game From Their Selection.
After gutting the game of all playability (mini puzzles, object usage, etc.), and chopping it up into three useless segment, Big Fish would service their customers better by just deleting this game from their inventory.
To offer an example a customer may relate to, imagine the Ravenhearst games being re-released with all the hidden object scenes removed, the mini puzzles deleted, and no items to find or use. Then, all you do is wander around and talk to the Ravenhearst ghosts. THEN the game is divided up into three parts, making you pay full price for each segment of walking around talking to Emma, Rose, the twins, etc.
So that is what this game is like. It is TERRIBLE. You'll essentially pay $21 to walk around and talk to characters in the game because the puzzles, objects, and challenge has been removed.

Not the game you think this is... ...
This is an extremely pared down version of the original large file game. It can easily be played in an hour. All of the mini-games have been removed. It is mostly walking around and talking to other characters. If you try to use any of the posted walkthroughs, you will get very confused because all of the games and challenges they mention do not exist in this version. When you start out, the artwork is so good and the story is interesting, so it seems like it will be an awesome game. But after talking to all of the characters - some several times - and going to each location - some more than once, the "game" abruptly ends. With all of the challenges removed, I think even if all three of these parts were sold together for a single game price, it still would not be worth it. I was very disappointed.

Interesting storyline but clueless. Just wonder around talking to same people and same area.

Waste of time
I played the trial version and all I was able to do was walk around talking to the same characters over and over trying to figure out what I am supposed to do next. There are no hints and after reading the other reviews, I do not plan on purchasing this game. No mini games, nothing. Total waste of my time to even download.
