I really liked this game, and look forward to the other chapters. It does not have a map but, I found it easy to move around. Just have to pay attention to your surroundings. Good flow of clues so you know your next move. Great point and click game.

I would give this game 4 or maybe even 5 stars if it wasn't for the fact I found myself going in circles for the first hour. Once I kind of got the hang of it, I began to appreciate the great graphics and interesting storyline better. I am looking forward to the next chapter and hopefully the Devs include a map.

The makers of this game clearly became so obsessed with the method and presentation that they forgot that it has to be interesting and enjoyable to play. Of all the games I have reviewed over the last few years this has to be the worst as it promised so much and delivered so little - and then had the gall to finish just at the point when you felt something might at last happen. In the 'game' you wander around conducting vaguely suggestive but mostly pointless conversations with various people - though every time you leave them you are then condemned to listening to repetitions of the same spiel. During the game you have the opportunity to pick up and use about six items....wow!....only two which are of any use in this part. You must buy Part Two to move on. I won't!

oh, how i wanted to like this game. just looking at the vamp's face on the pic makes me shudder-evil looking. i usually love Vamp games, but to navagate in this one totally threw me off. i was ready to throw my compter out the window i got soooooooooo frustrated. i couldn't get past talking to a fellow renter in the hotel. and it was all b/c of the navagation. i had no clue where i was going or where i'd been. i actually found myself getting motion sick-i know sounds ridiculous, but that's my experience.

You start out in a town, with your only instructions being to go find the inn at which you are staying. All right you think, easy enough. Then you realize that the way the game allows you to navigate is easily comparable to a ride at an amusement park. You swivel and spin and jerk all over, it actually made me a bit motion sick until I adjusted. After you conquer the controls you think surely it will get easier now. Then you realize you are tasked with finding a building in a town that resembles a small maze at first sight, with no map. Okay fair enough. They want to challenge you. After wandering up and down the same streets once or twice you finally find yourself at the inn. You proceed to have dialog with the inn keeper, and start what you assume will be an exciting mission. Wrong again. The entire game is spent wandering around talking to different characters, that's the game. You are only able to interact and pick up a few items throughout the game. I had higher hopes for this game. It seemed like the creators were going to give us an action game that stepped out of the normal zone of most games in this category. The interaction and style of the game seemed fun and original at first. However, you will quickly become bored with all the dialog and slow pace of the game. Then as you fianlly reach a point where interesting things should ensue, the game ends. Am I supposed to be enticed into buying the second game? Because I am not, sir. I am not. This game is as interesting as watching a documentary on the movement of snails, coincidentally the snail documentary would creep by much faster.

This game promised a lot, but it didn't give as much as I thought. I spent my whole trial of it walking around in circles, having talked to everyone multiple times and not getting further in the game. It's not worth buying, and probably not even worth the time of a trial. It was a boring experience, the cut scenes were low quality, the voices got annoying after a while, the soundtrack was dull. It did, however capture the dark eerie environment, probably the only good thing about it. But other than that, it was very boring, and a big disappointment.

I've never played a game like this, when you have to move the cursor to the edge of the screen to move around in a room. Not quite feeling this game can't get into it.

I've watched a walkthrough on youtube due to a stuck, and I think it was slightly different than this one, probably for a different console. The one on the walkthrough is clearly much better than this game. This one is only a part, so it's very short, like only an hour or two. So it doesn't worth buying. The navigation is interesting. Using paranormal view, meaning you can scroll round and round, up and down by moving the mouse only, and a small arrow appears if it is possible to proceed to the next scene. However, many people may find this frustrating, and easily lost, if they aren't familiar with this type of moving. The graphics is fine, not extremely detailed, but well done nonetheless. The music is great, very suspenseful and jumpy. However, the voices are done poorly. For me, the characters' voices were off most of the time and occasionally on. There must be something wrong with this version, since it's fine in the walkthrough. Also, there's no subtitle in this. There is no map, or task guide as to what should be done. If you're stuck, either walk around trying to speak to everyone, interact with everything, or look at walkthrough. There's a mini-game where you draw the character's blood, and there's no hint for that as well. Also, this game cuts some parts of the mini-game/actions. There's also no help to let you know how to use an object. I had to try everything and finally figured it out that I had to choose that object in the inventory so that it appeared in the lower right corner window, then if there is a possible action, a gear symbol will appear at the specific location. One thing very annoying is that you can't click most of dialogs to make them move faster. Some repeated dialogs can be clicked to pass, but not all. Furthermore, when the characters talk and they present you with something (e.g. on the table), the camera doesn't focus on the object. You have to refocus on it yourself. The game in the walkthrough I saw on Youtube seems to be a fine one. This one, however, is done very poorly. I'm not sure because it's an older version, or they remade it on computer. Anyway, it's totally bad, and to split into a part of about 2 hours like this is even worse. Honestly, please consider passing this game.

I have to agree with emi1. I found myself going in circles beause the game was so difficult to navigate. I never did figure out how to find the parlor in the inn, so I never spoke with the other lodger. I did find the cemetery, and spoke with the grave digger, then almost couldn't find my way out. This should have been a great game, but unfortunately, it's not.

I actually liked this game but I am ready for part 2. Took a little to get used to turning around and not getting vertigo. I liked the way the narration would lead you to the next task. I've gotten tired of HOG and this was a nice change of pace.

This game tells a story that is a cliff hanger so I won't say much except that it is a great game. The people that put it together did a wonderful job and it seem they have taking great care and time into it. I can not wait until the sec. half come out.

I tried playing this game 4 times and totally got frustrated and gave up. There are arrows supposedly to give you directions where to go next but I never did figure them out. Really there is nothing I like about this game and would give it no stars if I could. Sorry this is just my opinion. There are so many good games out there I won't waste anymore time on this one.

I was so excited to play this...the creepy looking vamp on the title screen alone made me want to jump right in. Unfortunately you keep walking around in circles because there is no navigation or maps to refer to. Took me a while just to find the first correct doorway to go to. Then the actual navigation mimics some of my PS3 games where you spin around with the camera. Unfortunately this game is lots of small spaces like hallways, alleys, and rooms and I get horribly dizzy sick. At least in my PS3 games they warn you this might happen. I kept trying to play but finally had to toss in the towel before I tossed my cookies.

Although this game is a bit "clicky",it was still relatively enjoyable. The main complaint I have with this game is that once I really started to get into the groove,and figure everything out,it was over. I finished the game in less than 3 hours! I feel a little cheated in that respect. Overall,I'd give this game a 4 out of 10.
