Review of A Vampyre Story by millenia

Stars - 35

Rating by millenia posted on Jul 1, 2013 | edit | delete

Charming and funny

Years ago when I first tried the game I thought the jokes were just too awful and the game overall was a bit boring, but I gave it another chance now and found out it’s actually a good game, not far from excellent. I would rather rate it at 4- stars, but as there isn’t an option for this, it’s going to be a very solid 3 and a half.

A Vampyre Story looks beautiful and sounds good. Mona’s high pitched voice might be a bit of an acquired taste but it’s very suitable, kudos for not going for the basic bland protagonist neither with the voice nor with the other characteristics.

The game has loads and loads of things to interact with, one can easily spend many extra hours just trying all the combinations (look/talk/use/fly). Puzzles work pretty well varying a bit with difficulty - there’s at least one rather tough one. The silly sidekick bat adds some variety to the puzzles too.

The humour is stupid. It’s so stupid that at times it’s almost painful, but somehow after a while I really got used to it and found myself smirking and laughing more and more as the game progressed.

Overall this game is very well worth playing for any adventure gamer, though unfortunately it ends rather abruptly and the story doesn’t get a decent ending at all.

Everyone should note that AVS has a couple of game breaking bugs which can luckily be fixed by patching the game. I strongly recommend this. Also, saves from unpatched game will be unlikely to work properly in the patched version.
