Vampire Rain (Xbox 360) meta Review


Your mission, to eliminate a growing population of deadly vampires on your own or, with up to eight players online where you have the choice to remain a human or become a Nightwalker. Though with a score of 56% from 5 reviews on Metacritic.com, you may decide to visit your granny instead.

Reviews Summary
It's kitsch. Deep kitsch, ludicrously incongruous, over-the-top voiceovers
A very mediocre game you might consider this one a rainy day at the bargain bin
Decent stealth elements and a fun Live play can't quite redeem what is a deeeply shoddy game.
As the back of the box says: Identify (that the game's a bit rubbish). Eliminate (it off your shopping list). Survive (with your dignity intact).
Feels like it's from 1997 and not 2007?

There's no pleasing some people...
They say never judge a book by its cover, but I'm sold purely by the illustration on this post!

Killing vampires? What's not to like? Personally I can't abide the creatures...

The Elderly said...

I dknow, given the proper upbringing and a visit to the dentist they can be quite cuddly.....

Vlad the Impaler said...

typical of humankind, to attack what they don't understand, blood banks have negated our need to feed on humans. We are sentient beings deserving of affection like any other...

The Elderly said...

but your dead?

Vlad the Impaler said...

... well okay, erm... there is that.... okay so we're dead... a small point, im sure we can overlook in the the interest of forging an understanding between our species?...

Actually I do like the large chested lady vampires with heaving bosoms from the Hammer Horror films, Grandpa from the Munsters, Blade and Blackula, from the Blaxploitation 70's film of the same name... Sorry for any mis-understanding Vlad...

The Elderly said...

gnome said...

Aha! Foiled you are again vile blogger!

fatherkrishna said...

I've no idea what blood type I am... But I do believe it's about 5% Proof...

Vlad the Impaler (poorly disguised) said...

FK.....5% proof... oh dear... that's a pity... I've been banned from taking alcohol because of the effect it has on my flying, pity though it sounds sublime....

Umm....

Is there no walkthroughs what so ever for this game?

The Elderly said...

after a five page trawl of Google search results not a single walkthrough available.. which is incredible.... however the following youtube user (bless his/her cotton socks) has put together a series of video walkthroughs..
