Ellen Cross saga laid to rest later this year in Dracula 5

The biggest complaint from gamers (including us) when Dracula 4: The Shadow of the Dragon was released earlier this summer was that it wasn't a whole game! An abrupt, unexpected "to be continued" left a bad taste in many mouths, but fortunately we don't have long to wait for the story's conclusion, as Anuman Interactive today announced that Dracula 5: The Blood Legacy will be released later this year under its Microïds adventure label.

Not many details have been revealed about the plot so far, but the new game will pick up where the last left off. Art restorer Ellen Cross, dying from a rare blood disease while she investigates the bizarre reappearance of valuable artwork believed lost, now has "nothing left to lose will not give up without clearing up this mystery."  Her pursuit promises to take players "all around the world" solving puzzles and interacting with a variety of characters whose "motivations are ambiguous."

There is no firm released date set, but Dracula 5: The Blood Legacy is due to be launched sometime before the end of 2013. To learn more, be sure to visit the game's official website.

Nevermind the casuals then - the biggest gripe I’ve picked from reviews, and the reason I’m not keen on playing Dracula 4 is that it’s easy, and that the technical side of it seems to be even behind Dracula: Resurrection from 1999.

Casual games are not easy, so that comparison is misleading. But lots of games start out with easier puzzles in the first few hours before ramping up the difficulty later in the game. That’s only a problem when the game unexpectedly stops halfway through.

It wasn’t really the biggest concern I’ve got from the reviews. I can live with abrupt endings (here’s to you, A Vampyre Story!), but the biggest issue seems to be that it resembles casuals in terms of difficulty and limited animation much more than previous 3 titles.
