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...

Challenging. Right from the beginning.

Out of this series of games, this one is my favorite.

Amazing graphics to an "old tale" pleasantly surprised and such a "rare find". I found at first very hard to try to get "into" the game, but when I did through the walk through... I was "off and running". Very well done!!

Dracula Origin - A Challenge!
I played the sequel, 'Love Kills' first and enjoyed it so much I bought this one. It is totally different, more of a true adventure game as opposed to a HO/Puzzle game. I found I needed to refer to the walkthrough constantly as it was sometimes impossible to work out what to do next. Became frustrated in the museum when one of the items I needed was neither in my inventory or available to pick up - luckily I had saved my game in several slots as I went along so I was able to re-load a previous game and start the scene again. Some of the inventory items were a bit obscure! At one point I didn't expect to complete it, but I got there in the end and breathed a sigh of relief. Graphics good, I didn't find them too graphic as some other reviewers did. Voices excellent. It was okay, but a bit too much like hard work for me, and I much preferred the sequel.

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.

I can't finish this one
I actually disagree with several of the other reviewers who I've seen post some great reviews of other games. This is a pretty good game overall, but the primary challenge is more about finding items than solving puzzles. (There are at least a couple of scenes that let you continue before finding what you need later; I only know because I missed a couple of items and had to spend way too much time backtracking.) The storyline is nice, but when navigating through each scene and finding everything you need is more difficult than the actual puzzles, completing the puzzle itself just doesn't feel as rewarding. I'm sure others with different tastes might enjoy it; it just wasn't for me.

Glad I finished it...
This was one of those games that promised so much for me and in the end really didn't deliver.. visually it was great - fantastic graphics and scenes. Some of the puzzles were very hard and the items that you use did not always make sense to me so I had to use a walkthrough quite a bit.
The ending was the killer for me - it didn't make sense at all to me - in fact I still have no idea about the identity of Dracula, which was dissapointing. I guess it shows how I felt about it that I haven't even bothered to search through forums to see if someone has an idea! And another thing - I hate it when a game finishes and you still have items in the inventory - which I did in this case.
Overall - it was the type of game that I continued to play but I was glad it was finished.
