Not Bad

I looked up many many reviews of this game and they all give it about a 3 out of 10 saying its really bad. Well its not. The only thing i really had a problem with was the vampire modeling. I have been playing games recently just to find the faults and fails of games and pretty much doing my own reviews for games. This game for me was a really good game that i enjoyed playing. I couldn't find any glitches or just annoying game play mechanics that made the game broken. The character animation did not have, like most mainstream titles have, annoying animation that hinders your game play experience. This game is a pure stealth game for about a good portion of the game. You get weapons in which you really devastate vampires and made it feel good killing them. Many people hate the difficulty but i felt the realism refreshing. Its not really scary and fortunately it only had like on "surprise this should scare you" moment. The game was pretty simple for the most part and if you have any intelligence you will find it pretty easy to avoid enemies. The voice acting is good except for the vampires. The audio is good, except for the vampires. Except for the vampires, overall the game was done well. The quality of the vampires is that of probably ps1 standards and I'm not joking. Its a good splinter cell/ metal gear solid clone. You shouldn't expect revolutionary things with this game but I still really enjoyed playing it. My real rating for this game would really probably be a 8 out of 10. I give it a 10 out of 10 just so i can maybe boost the overall ratings because a 3 out of 10 is a little too low for this. If your a real gamer, that enjoys playing games and like somewhat good story line then rent this game. If you just want your gears of war graphics and see many shiny things to distract you and kill a lot of stuff then stay with your Killzone 2 and Resistance. I say rent it, try it out. And heck, I would buy this game, if they did just a little bit better on the vamps.

this game is the worst excuse for something actually made for PS#...graphics are awful, gameplay doesnt make any sense, and its just like another game we all know(Splinter Cell Chaos Theory). the one time i do see a vampire in the game, i cant kill it, unloading a full clip of 12 into it and not seeing its health drop one pixel is a bother. and the levels involve waling a few blocks and then ur done with the level. if u want to kill yourself, i suggest this game

This game is not really a shooter unless you have your team with you which is very rare. This game is mainly about stealth, planning, skillfully, and quickly moving to your planned path without being seen. If you are seen and alert the enemies then YOU WILL DIE. This game is fun though just don't think your going to shoot your way through the nightwalkers and beat this game, ummm no. You actually have to use your brain. If you are wanting a shooter type game besides the ocasional sniper points and head shots, this is not the game for you. Trial and error is the key to beating this game. Took me less than one day to beat this game but hey, I rather enjoyed this game. Plenty of room for improvment but the voice overs are nice, the graphics are GORY, and FINALLY a game that takes a chance of being a challenge. If your a novice game player this one is not for you.
