Since I know the real story I can't imagine even previewing this "game"

I thought this game was great! It felt really long for a non-CE version. It just kept going and going and going. The layout was huge, too. I definitely used the map feature a lot to figure out where I needed to go and to get there quickly. The HOPs were interesting. I kept forgetting to use items from my inventory to make the HOPs complete, so that was challenging. None of the mini games were very hard. I like them harder. But the story was *pretty* good and I had no technical issues. I think there was a glitch with the crossbow wording, but it wasn't a big deal. I'd highly recommend this one.

I know the historical story too, but don't have a problem reviewing this "game" (weird). I enjoyed it, although sometimes the gameplay instructions were not always clear but the hint helped out there. I enjoyed the fact the HOS were interactive with the inventory bar. I've seen this used before and it ads some dimension to the game. Hint and skip refreshed quickly. I did skip most of the mini-games/puzzles. Transporter map was good, but at times didn't show you where to go and I had to use the hint or remember to "go to the wagon" to make a potion.

Interesting story based on the historical Elizabeth (Erzebet) Bathory. Since one of the many legends that has been built up over the centuries regarding her extremely unorthodox behavior was an association with vampirism I didn't find the story all that out of line. Romania has some pretty colorful historical figures.

Historical names were used in the game, although her husband was not or ever associated with being a vampire. Anyway, a colorful game with a "gypsy finder" twist. If you are interested, the story of this horrible woman is an interesting read and I encourage it. Rarely find these games based on real characters.

A side note: If you are a bit squeamish probably not a good game for you. I give it a 4 out of 5, just because it can be a bit confusing at times. Loved making the potions in the wagon...that was fun!

Couldn't have put it better as I, too, thoroughly enjoyed this game! It was so different from the usual fare, the story flowed so well, great characters, etc. The potion-making was lots of fun too. No glitches (Win 7HP 64) - fun game w/ a conclusive ending for SE. Deserves 5+ & a
