Vampires: Todd & Jessica's Story
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

These developers need to go into a different game market
No voiceover, yet enough file space for a collector's edition. This means TOO MANY small hidden objects that make it hard to find.
These developers should go into action gaming with such graphical detail.
This is a vampire story which is nothing new here.

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 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.....

The graphics in this game were rather simple. The story started out a little odd. The HOG was too easy and obvious. I found the entire game boring.

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...

Vampire world without enough challenge
The graphics quite satisfying, but the music the same sad Bach-like as other games. The same music followed in every scene, no variation. I would have seen more to do in every scene and to pick up more than one or two objects. Too static scenes, not enough action in them.
