  • Summary: Delivering a blend of atmospheric survival horror and intense first person shooter action, Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi immerses players in the terror of an ancient, gothic castle full of vampires.

  1. Play this one alone and in the dark. The Boogeyman gives this title major props for the sheer terror it brings.
  2. My only real complaint with this game is the length. It's far too short - taking around three hours to complete, at the most. It can't possibly take more than three hours, in fact, because there's a timer built into the game.
  3. When Nosferatu is at its best, the game is a moody frightfest of first person survival-horror unlike anything on the PC, but when it’s at its worst Nosferatu is a frustrating exercise in dying. Still, for horror fans this can be overlooked, as Nosferatu delivers some great goosebumps.
  4. It has the makings of a great game but some evil force shipped it before it was spit shined.
  5. The game is challenging enough without been overly difficult and thanks to the random re-generation of the castle and its contents predictability is kept to a minimum.
  6. The best comparison is a C-list Hammer Horror film. Yes, clearly utter trash – but trash that attempts to overcome its limitations through determination and imagination.
  7. What am I afraid of? Bad games, and Nosferatu seriously scares me. [Feb 2004, p.90]

    Great horror-game. Kinda like good old Doom but in a more recent game engine. A good game while you wait for Doom 3. Great feature with the random maps and placements. Only drawback is a few bugs and the lack of multiplay. Sure to give you goose-bumps all over all the time you play :o) Expand
