If you want a zombie busting game full of gore and guts, mutilation and realistic A.I, don't buy this game!
Whilst searching ebay for a bargain, I found this for a mere £7.00. Without thinking twice, I snapped it up like a child at christmas, received the game and loaded it straight into the Xbox.
I knew from the opening scenes this was going to be a poor game.. 5 Years on from Resident Evil what has improved? Just about every other game bar this one.
The basic plot of the game is a black ops unit set out to elimate vampires, take out random vampires throughout levels to fight the final one.
The graphics were poor and pixellated, the face details were poor and the AI was unresponsive. I was REALLY dissapointed.
I was expecting this game to give me shivers such as Bioshock, but nope, more comical than anything.
Multiplayer can only be played online and not split screen, and even that is rather poor! It's a game worth renting for a couple of gamerscore points, but that's about it.
In all honesty, it does not compete with the other zombie games about. If you want a game to scare you, get Bioshock, if you want a zombie game, get deadrising.
Vampire Rain is a stealth action game for the Microsoft Xbox 360 games console.
I thought that this game would be something like Splinters Cell but apart from the noise that the night vision goggles make, there is no comparison.
The enemies in this game are called night walkers, they are impossible for you to kill apart from with the shotgun. This makes every other gun in the game useless and pointless. The enemy simply move too fast and they do too much damage making the game really frustrating.
They also seem to see you even when you are hidden perfectly, this makes for a really infuriating experience as you have to attempt the same level over and over which is annoying enough but you get killed so easily that you will no doubt have to retry and insane amount of times.
You can get this game for around £10.00 but even if you got it for free I recommend you put it in the bin!
This is one of those games you buy because it has a cool title, you get it home after reading the back of the case and all excited you switch on your 360, slap the disc in and grab the controller.
After the intro has played and you've created a user profile you start the game, then slowly you realise this is nothing like the type of game you wanted.
It looks okay, the game play is limited and linear.
if you want to play a game when you cant actually kill the enemies (they are too fast and too strong in comparison) then rock on, the stealth element of the game is main factor, more sneaking past vampire's than trying to kill them. it takes a long time in the game to get any weapons that can actually take them down, they can kill you in 1 or 2 hits, okay its not all bad on XBox live you get to play as the nightstalkers (vampires).
As a member of a black ops unit, your mission in Vampire Rain? is to secretly eliminate a growing population of deadly vampires known as Nightwalkers. Your hands will sweat and your heart will pound as you use stealth, strategic thinking, and specialized weapons to face your supernatural foes. Be careful out there?because if you make one mistake, you're history.
