It’s far from a perfect game - could have been longer with a more challenging puzzles, but the way they’ve portrayed Transylvania’s spooky countryside and characters with every little facial muscle animated is nothing short of greatness. Locations do seem a little bit desolated, and there’s really not that many supporting characters (even Dracula himself is spared, probably for the second part), but the atmosphere is exactly what you would expect from a Dracula game - it might not be the scariest game around, and it might not be a horror game at all - but once you find yourself in the middle of a forest in the dead of night - you’ll realize what I’m talking about.
Another glaring feature are cutscenes and the overall graphic design, with a “comic art” and almost poetic beauty to it.
