A Vampire Romance: Paris Stories
Well I tried; I managed to last a full hour & I almost fell asleep. The story has no joy or horror or romance; it is a sort of teen girl?s idea of love in Paris, except that you have to keep taking the most boring trips around subways to find your train. After half a dozen or so journeys going nowhere in particular & doing nothing in particular when I got there I really never wanted to see these trains again.
There are precious few hidden objects and even fewer mini-games; just endless travelling from one station to another to spend a minute or two looking at scenes of Paris & picking up a few hidden objects, some are lists of items & some are shadow pictures. The scenes are not even really good drawings, these would not want to make me visit this beautiful city; better graphics would have helped.
You start off with a few hints, I really cannot remember how many but you have to find a star in a scene & click on it to gain more.
I finally met ?the boy? in the art studio & got to travel with him to a cemetery where his family are interred; the oldest in Paris apparently. It looked more like a concrete jungle that is met at the bottom of an underpass.
The girl draws his picture & he is overwhelmed, presumably because as a vampire who cannot look in a mirror he can?t remember what he looks like by which point I really don?t care for her or him or the game; thus ended my demo.

Possibly one of the worst hidden object games
Right at the start of the game there are no directions so you are just randomly clicling trying to link " metro lines" to each other and find places that are written in French. i played it for 6mins and quit because you go around in circles trying to figure out what you are even supposed to do, Definitly one of the worse games on this site i've played!!!

really strange gameplay
love paris...love vampires...hated this game...
I had a difficult time trying to use the metro 'cause there just weren't clear instructions. The hidden object scenes felt tricky(stuff behind things and in things) and some objects were itty bitty. But the thing that stopped me cold was the 'art class'... I tried tracing with my mouse and nothing happened then all of sudden lines would show up and I didn't know why... ugh...

Not even Faint Praise
Slow. Confusing. Irritating.
I have it on good authority that, even in Paris with a good map, the Metro is not for the faint of heart.
That said, I wish I could have found a story in the short time I devoted to this piece of dreck. Not having found one, and irritated beyond belief by the puzzles and small items needing to be found, I gave it up.
Bad. Very, very bad.

What? I wasted a credit on this?
I expected the game to last a lot longer than it actually did. What a waste of a game credit. I wish I could get it back. The story did not live up to its potential at all.

The Game that went nowhere!!!
Seems as if you can only get in the subway and go in a circle to where you started!!!!! I don't like being stuck under ground and no hint on how to get to the line you want!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comme ci comme ca
A little confusing to begin with seeing as the guidance it gives you can be a little scarce, but once you figure it out, it's simple enough to follow. The minigames can be as frustrating as they are enjoyable. The plot requires a certain suspension of disbelief and the main character sounds rather reminiscent of a stalker, but that has it's own charm, in a strange way. Overall, not a game that I'd replay, but still one I'd say is worth playing if you have the money to burn.

A frustrating game
I was looking forward to seeing Paris, but spent the time in the subway. No directions, The mini games had a little fun to them. Do not buy this game.

I had to see for myself
Couldn't believe that the game could be as frustrating as other reviews suggested. So I just had to try it. Not fun. I'm not sure if it's just too challenging for my skills, or a poorly constructed game. Random clicks - exactly. You can't even intuit what the developers want you to do.

Not a Twilight of this Vampire Romance
Thought this game would be fun but it was only tedious and I only opened this on a free trial basis. What a waste of an hour. Suggest they go back to the drawing board to finish this game. This game I will not be purchasing. Giving it a pass as in a walk by with my wallet still in tact.
