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]
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.
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]
There isn’t too much else to be said about Vampire Rain, other than semi-mindless ranting about how bad the game is (only semi-mindless because you begin coherently, but the ranting consumes too much of you and you might forget what you’re talking about).
There's an overwhelming number of issues with Vampire Rain. While we'd like to go into detail about how obviously this game rips off Splinter Cell or how later missions send you through earlier levels backwards, there isn't enough time for all the complaints. Vampire Rain just sucks.
The stealth BK game "Sneak King" is actually more of an entertaining game than Vampire Rain is. [Sept 2007, p.70]
