  1. If you really like light-shooters and are looking for something different than a modern setting, you will probably find the game a breath of fresh air.

    If you're a fan of shooters and have a predilection for Ed Wood then this game has your name written all over it.
  3. 73
    You can't help but feel that Vampire Night is more of a step back in the genre as far as gameplay is concerned.
  4. I'd like a more memorable and challenging shooter for my hard-earned dough. Call me crazy.
  5. A solid, enjoyable romp Vampire Night may be, but it adheres strictly to the same trite concepts we've seen recycled so many times before.
  6. Too short and on the easy side.
  7. The graphics, though slick, lack the sort of interest I expected and are actually quite bland. [Feb 2002, p.62]
