  1. A breath of nostalgic perfume for the point-and-click enthusiast. I was sorry when it was over, and I fervently hope that the Count finds a way to come back and haunt us for third time.
  2. Now that I've finished this game, I'm kind of hoping the developers will go ahead and create another.
  3. Let's cut to the chase -- this game sucks. Or rather, its chief antagonist does, since that vampiric schmuck Dracula just won't stay dead...bloody good fun.
  4. Creeping is what you do - a menacing mood pervades the game, and you feel you should be cautious. Play with the lights off and everything is accentuated. I jumped more than once.

    It is the kind of decent B-list thing that tides you over until another one of these A-list gems comes along.
  6. Better than "Dracula Resurrection" and worth picking up. However, it falls short of greatness.

    An achievement in cramming as many puzzles into a game as possible. [Apr 2001, p.81]

What I thought sets it apart fromIn 2013, this game is quite dated but still very worthwhile for Myst-like point-and-click adventure fans. What I thought sets it apart from modern adventure games is its minimalistic user interface. Just hover your cursor over something and see if any action is allowed. If it is, figure out which item to use. There are no item descriptions, almost none protagonist in-game narration, no tutorial, no game options or explicit hints. The game just isn't holding your hand all the time but on the other hand, most of the puzzles aren't overly difficult and some of them are quite clever. However, you might get stuck on some pixel hunting several times. Story-wise and technologically, the Last Sanctuary (D:LS) is a direct continuation of Dracula: Resurrection, which was a much shorter game. I found the rendered backgrounds diverse and of very good quality even if the resolution wasn't very high. Voice acting was decent for most characters and sound effects and ambient music were quite fitting to set the atmosphere. Most of the story is told through animated cut scenes. Understandably, the animation is stiff for today's standards and some of the dialogues are silly but overall, the pace of the game is maintained with very few distractions. A new thing in D:LS as compared to its predecessor are the quick-time events, which are quite refreshing in an adventure game and also you can't easily predict them so saving your progress regularly is recommended. All in all, the second installment of Dracula does not disappoint the fans of the genre. Expand

    Totally sucks. I cant believe that when I bought this game it said nothing about it being a worthless point and click mouse game on the box. ITotally sucks. I cant believe that when I bought this game it said nothing about it being a worthless point and click mouse game on the box. I feel very ripped off. At least with the playstation version you can use a gamepad but as for the PC version , forget about it! Expand
