Moody, gothic atmosphere makes 1918's London an incredible setting; A vast number of layered and well-developed characters; Engaging, immersive gameplay loop; Your decisions carry actual weight and consequences, leading to surprising levels of player agency; Captivating narrative setup. Vampyr may very well be the video game personification of the phrase "diamond in the rough".
Witnessing a studio succeed beyond what their audience expects of them is always a pleasure, and DONTNOD Entertainment has done just that with Vampyr. Whether you’re intrigued by the idea of stalking London as a bloodthirsty vampire or expressly fancy a rock-solid ARPG, consider sinking your teeth into this gem.
The people you’re trying to save, or deciding to eat, are fleshed out well enough, and with enough complexity, to leave you making decisions based on what you believe, not through totting up some in-game metric. It’s a very narrative focused game with some rough edges, and a slow conversation heavy pace, but the shape overall is an enjoyable take on a gothic vampire fantasy.
