A Perfect Ten Stars!! Brilliant and Horrifying!!
Purchased a while ago and just got around to playing. Was this game intense and in no way was I prepared for the graphic content. Took over three full days to play and I could not drag myself away.
Once you get an idea of what is expected, gameplay runs smoothly and is one of the fastest, for me, of all the Large File Adventure games ever played. Not really any wasted running around as Van Helsing would say, "I'm in need of something" whenever a particular item was needed and you simply cannot go any further.
The voice overs and movie scenes were astonishing in their professionalsim. No corners were cut in this Adventure!
I liked battling ghouls and vampires, especially matching wits against Count Dracula. Will not settle for any sequel other than Dracula: Origin 2 and don't see anything here on BFG so will have to wait. Would be great to have a follow up on the main characters i.e. Mustapha, the Monk, even Igor. ^_^
To sum up the graphic nature, it is best to quote Van Helsing, "Ahhhh! How Dreadful!"
Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

I can play this game over and over again. The first time it was REALLY difficult and demanding, but the awesome story and graphics smoothened the flaw. Yet I can't give it a full five stars because of the difficulty. But it was one of the best nonetheless! As I already said, the graphics and story were astounding <3

This game was very challenging, but absolutely fantastic! I did have to resort to the walkthrough for some of the more difficult puzzles. Absolutely recommend this game!

Really Enjoyed this game!
Graphics are excellent. Environment is perfect!
Characters - decent animation and voice acting.
Puzzles - some simple, others challenging- a good mix
Story was actually pretty decent when compared to others - flowed very nicely.
Game mechanics are fairly intuitive, A brief overview at the start would have helped for newer adventure gamers.
Inventory items must sometimes be combined.
Press the Space Bar for Hints!
For puzzles, part of the challenge is in simply figuring out how the puzzle works and what you must do to solve it. (Only one puzzle near the very end stumped me.)
There is a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor in this game and there is one occasion where you really must stretch your imagination. LOL (beaver cadaver!!!)
Overall - excellent adventure game!

I read reviews on games that don't offer an hour to try it out like the Large File games. The review I read on this game claimed they just 'couldn't walk away from it'. I played 15 min..then walked away. In my opinion this game was very difficult to use interface i.e. pick up objects, know what to do with it, getting from point A to point B and you have to read way to much to figure out the puzzles. It felt more like I was assigned a school report instead of a relaxing game.

My first Thumbs Down, BF game.
The story line is great. Graphics are superb. This just is not my type of game. I really enjoy the vast majority of the HO games, but I play to relax and enjoy the experience. Dracula Origin is just too demanding for me to enjoy. Please don't let my opinion discourage anyone from getting and enjoying it though. I'm sure the vast majority of the computer game enthusiasts will find it a great experience.

Still a great story and challenging after all this time.

Excellent, But Hard In More Ways Than One
Excellent, but hard in more ways than at certain points in the game, but far greater than its sequel, Dracula Love Kills and that's saying something. Play to find out why...
