Dracula will need to fight and destroy them to avoid being killed. Also, the Count has run out of blood, so he will need to feed on the soldiers to recover his strength. It is an exciting and fun action game with very good graphics and sound effects. The intro to the game is exceptionally well-crafted. It shows Dracula reading a book, as well as beautiful details of his castle.The accompanying piano and symphonic music are also very good, adding to the gloomy atmosphere of the game.A good feature is that it includes a tutorial to get you started.
The developers recommend using a gamepad to play the game, although it is possible to use your computer's keyboard. Nevertheless, it is extremely difficult to play with the keyboard, since there are many keys to use. Also, you need to combine the keyboard with the mouse to use certain functions. The default key combinations are rather unusual since you need to use certain alphanumeric keys instead of the accustomed arrows to move the character. Also, the game is resource-intensive, so it would be better if you play it on a game-optimized computer.
In sum, if you like action games with a touch of gore, this one is for you. Please note that the game is not recommended for small kids, so you need to enter your birth date in order to have access to the game site. You need to install the Steam platform to play the game.
