Vampires: Todd & Jessica's Story
I played 30 mins of the demo and honestly couldn't play anymore. Black screen in between moving locations took longer than usual, map was interactive, hint button just gave an annoying "nothing to do here", penalties if you click too much in either a puzzle or HOS scene. HOS scenes very basic and very easy to find items, got a bit fed up trying to find where to go next and you have to use objects in your inventory together but nothing to tell you this though.
Storyline sounded very good vampire meets girl and wants to be human as he is in love but could have been a lot better.
Puzzles very easy, graphics very basic, turned the sound off as the music and voiceovers were very awful and annoying. Overall would suit a beginner (possibly) but there are many more better games out there that I will spend my pennies on, not for me.

If I didn't have a coupon about to expire....
I wouldn't be getting this game.
There are too many 'nothin do do here' messages, when you click hint. Also, what's with the claw slashings when you click hint sometimes? I did the tutorial, I wasn't told there.
Pros? Pretty pictures.
Cons? Just about everything else. It's irritating. I'll probably finish it, working for a little time. When I start to growl #I am a bear after all# I'll quit, go back later. gggggggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Quite frankly this is a very boring game, I thought the hour would never end! Same old vampire controls thirst for humans and longs to be human and marry a mortal. The graphics were okay and the mini games were mostly simple puzzle pieces you rotate and snap in place. The HOS were simply tiny objects not well hidden. You have a map in your journal for traveling period. Long periods between finding objects and scenes with very little to do. The hint system only tells you there is nothing to do search elsewhere and only two levels of difficulty. There is no voiceover, just dialog boxes you read some of which scrolls to fast to read. I don't even know if Jessica knows Todd is a vampire or what happened to her at the resturant

This was not checked before release
I have played more than my share of these types of games and this one was not one of the better ones. First, there are typos. Second, there were glitches during the "find this..." scenes. For example, you are asked to find a kiwi and there are 2 on the screen... one is the fruit and the other is the bird... you must click the fruit. Third, I don't know where this game was made, but there were items to be found that I didn't know what they were. Lastly, the ending sucked! It just ends suddenly with no explanation of how Todd might or might not get back his mortality. How does Dad enjoy having a vampire in the family, etc... I am glad I got this one at 20% off. It's not worth much more than that.

Just, well, strange...
The storyline is classic Twilight. Awful. This is balanced by actually really good graphics (I typically play without sound). The gameplay is ok, although some objects are basically impossible to find in challenge mode. I saw someone else say that this is too simple for expert gamers and too scary/confusing for beginners, and I think that sums it up. The puzzles are ridiculously simple but some of the actions you're required to take are leaps of faith (or leaps of trying everything in your inventory). Glad this was a freebie for me.

Need more Guidance
The plot is good, the graphics fair, but the hint button is almost useless. Sometimes, you can find something in the location it "points" out to you and sometimes, there's nothing there to click on that will help and nothing you click on is the right thing. I need more help than the "Help" button provides. Perhaps the Deluxe Edition will provide the needed guidance, but as it is, I don't think I would want to purchase it. Maybe later if you ever post an overview or something, but not now. I'm stuck and there's no place to get help that I can understand, or at least none I've been able to find

I really tried to like this game but I really have to ask, can a game get anymore slower? I love Vampire tales but this one just did not grab me.
Our storyline begins with a marriage proposal and a kidnapping. Poor Todd, a creature of the night who falls in love with Jessica. Its too bad that he is a vampire and she is human. Wanting to lead a normal life, Todd defies his true nature and suddenly finds himself a prisoner of Zack, another Vampire who is threatening to turn the lovely Jessica and save Todd's immortal soul.
I loved the music, a beautiful orchestrated piece with piano and violin, a haunting melody that unfortunately made my eyelids droopy and made the game even more slow. No voice-overs, two modes of gameplay and a jornal is available. There is no map but there are arrows that will indicate where you can travel to. The hint button is a bit off whereby you get slashes or circles that indicate where an item is.
A HOPA game with graphics that are sharp but look very dated. Emphasis is on Hidden Object scenes that are junk piled. The rest of the time, you have locations that take forever to get to, alot of inventory items to find and some even need to be combined.
Actually this game could have been interesting but unfortunately I got bored with the simple mini-games,too many HO scenes and very slow movement. By the time the demo ended, I was ready to turn in. I think I will pass.

Vampires:Todd and Jessica's Story
Well I was looking forward to playing this game but I was a little disappointed. After playing for awhile I kept getting Sorry nothing to do here try somewhere else. It lead me around by the nose. I decided not to purchase this game because it gave me a headache. Sorry.

This game was uber easy and super cheesy, The storyline was stupid, as were the characters. I played for about 15 minutes, and it was all I could stand. Graphics on the HOG scenes were sub-par at best. I didn't waste any more time on this one and got out quickly after two mini games, are you kidding me?? No challenge at all. I think this might appeal to a pre-teen girl, but that's about it...I'm not gonna say I hated it, that would be too harsh, and not worth the effort to hate, just gonna dislike it..
Don't waste your time downloading this one...

This is one of the slowest and worst games I have played yet, especially on a HOG. The story line could have been the makings of a great game....but IT IS INCREDIBLY BORING TO PLAY....The most adventure I had playing this game was when the game ended when my free hour was up! I played the entire free hour just to see if it started off boring & hopefully would get exciting.....BUT I JUST KEPT WAITING, & WAITING, & WAITING, & NOTHING.....But again, this is just my opinion and everyone knows all about opinions-LOL-but this is one game that I would not recommend to anyone & I hardly ever write a bad review unless the game was like this one & I am hopefully helping someone save money or time......Hope you have a good day.....
