Free blood transfusions on the national stealth service

Why is vampiric stealther DARK in capitals? Nobody knows. It doesn't stand for Dracula's A Restrained Killer, even though that would be the most appropriate subtitle in the world. Apart from one fact: in this world, the killer's name is Eric Bane. Eric has awoken, footloose and memory-free, in a purple nightclub with cage dancers and blood cocktails. Only half-converted, Eric is dazzled by headaches, hallucinating angels, and if he doesn't drink the blood of his maker, he'll degrade into a mindless ghoul.... read more

For what it's worth, DARK intrigues me somewhat. It feels like one of those games with some great ideas, but with a poor payoff. Saying that, don't think I could pay £25-30 for it. Will most likely pick it up when it's going cheap though.

Ha! How did i know this was a Log review from just that one line? Quality, and a really good review imo too, i can almost taste the desperate desire for the game to be better than it is....!

Such a shame, mediocre scores probably means crap sales or the perennial "i'll get it when cheap" (which why not if it's only a bit above average?), probably means they won't make another etc and thus continues the circle of shite, sorry, life.

You need to give up those philosophy classes.

You'd have thunk having a vampire as a player character would automatically make a game better. Oh well.

And I was so hoping this would be my long awaited console answer to Vampire The Masquerade. Why did you go bust Troika? :(

EDIT: More depressingly this seems to be one of the more favorable reviews

We'll never be that lucky. Still, looking at the little bit of gameplay I've seen, it's almost like they'd played Bloodlines themselves but didn't quite know how to recreate it or something.

I couldn't finish the first level of this game it was that bad. Its repetitive game play bored me after around an hour. The difficulty comes from putting you in a room with 20 guards (not an exaggeration) and telling you to get to the other end of it
