Vampire Legends: The True Story of Kisilova Collector's Edition
I enjoyed this game. Graphics are very good, the audio is well done, and the storyline is interesting. Easy puzzles (but not so much that it becomes boring) and overall very relaxing and fun.

Still Less Than a Night at The Cinema
I loved this game! Like many people these days, watching my funds carefully, I waited until there was a sale on. So I got the CE for the price of an SE. If it was a book I'd say it was a page-turner, the story had me completely engrossed in 18th century Serbia. The puzzles were pretty easy but most were well placed, not taking away from the action of the story. HO scenes were actually quite nice as well, not too much junk and a few mini puzzles within the scenes. So for the important info: If you missed the half-price CE sale, the story finishes quite fine after the regular chapters. In the extra content are interviews giving background info on the real story this game is based on, I found to be very interesting. The art, music and wallpapers that also come with the CE were, for me, not anything special or exciting. In actuality I gave 4 instead of 5 stars because I found the bonus chapter not to be up to the same standard as the rest of the game. I hate to be the one to nit-pick but quite a few items came up in the HOs of the bonus chapter that were not even close to period correct and it kind of threw me out of the story. The flow really seemed off as well, lots more running back and forth to get this part for that bit that then have to go back over there with the other thing. The regular chapters took me about 4 hours to complete and the bonus chapter another one. In summary, if you're looking for tons of HOs and really mind-bending puzzles this is probably not the game for you. If you're looking for a story that is thoroughly entertaining and at least twice as long as most movies, definitely check this game out.

If this was the standard edition, I would have given it 5 stars. It has a complete and satisfactory ending and the game itself is quite good along with the story. However, as a CE, this game doesn't have all the frills and collectibles and extras that other games do hence the 4 stars.
I would have liked a bit harder of a challenge both in the game itself and the puzzles BUT the story line makes this game one of the best I've played all year.
This is an UNIQUE, BASED ON TRUE EVENTS game. Its not your run of the mill vampire story. No love angle, just facts. And its done extremely well. I loved playing it. Usually I play in 1 hour increments but once I started this game, literally I couldn't stop. It took 5 hours give or take. The bonus chapter is put in the future. Its about one of the men on your first trek having nightmares about unfinished business so he goes there to check it out. YOU get to CHOOSE the ending. I did like that angle.
The voiceovers are very well done. There is no live acting BUT Id take GREAT voices over terrible live acting any day. Also, the music score was great, never got overly annoying and made the game sort of spooky.
Some games are so unique and great, they don't need all the collectibles, achievements etc to be extraordinary. This game is wonderful and I wish more developers would think outside the box like this and make engaging games that aren't just the same old story. Also, there are interviews about the folklore and truth in Vampirism according to locals and people who study it. It was very interesting and a great addition to the Collector's Edition.
I have never heard of this developer before but I can only hope they come out with more of their original well done games in the future. Kudos to a new and unique story line! Not the same cliche vampire things we usually see. KUDOS!
Oh & you only play each hidden object scene once which is great because you don't get sick of the scenery AND it doesn't make you go back and forth just to make it longer!

Great story, fast paced.
This game moves right along with nice intuitive clicks. The story is excellent. The graphics are a bit basic but it is a fun game that makes you want to see where it will take you next.

very well done
this game has a lot of the qualities I look for in a game other then the story ( although that was very well done also) such as 2 modes of play, reg & expert- good voice overs-very good graphics fast hint reload-skip for mini games, and so much more. I will absolutely be buying this game but will probably wait for the SG version.

Left Me Wanting A Little More ...
Good Graphics, Sound, Voice Overs & Effects ...
Overall A Good To Excellent Game ... Reasonably Long Game Play With The Collectors Edition ... The Sort Of Game You Don't Mind Paying For On Special For The Extra Play, But Wouldn't Pay Full Price ...
Lots To Do & Get ... But Perhaps A Little Too Much Back & Forth In The Quest Itself To Use The Items Gathered ...

The game was ok....not very challenging. If the mini games are more challenging than the actual game, maybe some tweeking needs to be done?

A bite of a good game.
I like this game. Had nice voice overs. Lots to do. Ran pretty smoothly. Like the scenes and critters running around. Hint button worked good. Ho's were nice. Easy enough for a player like me that I finished the demo before time was up.
