Challenging. Right from the beginning.

The game just dragged on. You spend a lot of time watching characters move from place to place. There aren't any hints, so if you're stuck, you're pretty stuck until you can find some kind of hint online or get lucky. They sequel game is significantly better, but this is a skip.

A pity I spent money on this
Tedious and a pain. I wish this had a free trial so that I could have saved my money.

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.

Not my favorite play type for a hidden objects game, I actually hated the game play. The story was pretty good, but I would have like to have better game play to enjoy the story.

Boring, Boring, Boring!
Visually good, however game play is slow and there's a lot of back and forth at a snails pace. Tasks are more challening than a lot of games I have played.

This was my first Large File download on BF. I haven't played these types of games in years, and without a demo I've shied away from trying something that might turn out to be a disappointment.
This type of game is not your same old same old Hidden Object junk that permeates BF. It's a first-person point and click interactive game that makes you THINK. It's one giant puzzle that you have to figure out in order to move forward in the game. It brings me back to the old days of games like MYST and I enjoyed every minute of it.
The music and ambient sounds were excellent and the graphics were impressive. The voice-overs were well done and although the dialogue could be tedious to wait through, you're able to left-click to skip over if you prefer to read the dialogue instead.
The journal is neatly ordered so it's easy to look for specific notes you need to review to solve puzzles.
Having played these types of games in the past it was easy for me to figure out the ESC button took you to the menu or that spacebar helps with the footprints/hints.
Overall I highly recommend this game for people who like this sort of adventure. If you are looking for a mindless HO game, where it doesn't require you to use your noggin, then this game is certainly not for you.

Great game!! Very challenging puzzles! needed the walkthrough for a couple of them but that's good. not just the typical picking up and putting items together. Not too much conversation either! would get another in the sequel for sure
