Vampyr Reviews Summary

Atmospheric World
Unfulfilled Ambitions
Performance Issues

Summary: Vampyr plays like a throwback, with all the positives and negatives to come with that. Exploring a wonderfully rendered London is nice, but sloppy gameplay and execution mar the experience.

There are some brilliant, original ideas in here, but Vampyr tries to do too much at once and suffers for it.

Vampyr is a slow burn of an RPG, taking its time to ramp up its intriguing blend of science and the supernatural in an elaborately gloomy version of London. When it gets going you can see the potential of the way it offers you more power if you consume its interesting citizens. But Vampyr never commits to this idea to the point where I felt I needed to make that sacrifice to succeed in its relatively simple combat, which leaves it feeling toothless and vulnerable to having a lot of its fun sucked away by technical issues, despite its genuinely engaging story.

Dontnod takes a thrillingly Gothic perspective on early 19th century London, but squanders it in a dreary and indecisive adventure.

As much a detective story as a horror one, Vampyr rewards you for taking an interest in the people around you and tests your moral compass with a lack of black and white options.
