  1. A very mediocre game from developer Artoon just like their last effort "Bullet Witch." If you love the genre then you might consider this one a rainy day at the bargain bin. [JPN Import]
  2. Regarding Vampire Rain sneaking is the key to success. If enemies are aware of your presence, you will die in a flash. So this title is made for folks who are willing to invest loads of time.

    It's just too bad the presentation and vision aren't there to solidify the experience fo rmore than it is. [Aug 2007, p.67]
  4. Simply put, Vampire Rain fails to live up to other great stealth-action based games already available on the market.
  5. An interesting idea that doesn’t come to full bloom. A horror flavoured stealth game with a Splinter Cell offense versus undead Vampire creatures could be something gamers really bite into. Poor graphic quality, lazy missions and level design really hurt Vampire Rain making the end product feel more like a budget title then the full price offering it is listed at.

    Despite the aforementioned illusion of choice, there is really only one pre-determined way to conquer a given mission, each stealthy ability in reality a functional button-press to move the game along. [Apr 2007, p.87]

    Decent stealth elements and a fun Live play can't quite redeem what is a deeeply shoddy game. This is the next-gen era of gaming, so why does this feel like it's from 1997 and not 2007? [JPN Import, Issue 24, p.75]
  8. This game is a bit confused about its identity. It’s not a great stealth game, action game or horror game for that matter.
  9. To paraphrase the President, there are some games Americans just won't play.

    A monumental failure in modern gaming Vampire Rain can be easily summed up with one word.

    Unplayable. I would rather grab a friend and

    Unplayable.

    I would rather grab a friend and instruct him to start hammering nails into my skull, than put myself through another second of this garbled, rushed, messy, broken, horrible pile of pig feces.

    Boring, repetitive, and it goes on and on forever. It sucks.
