The First Interactive Gothic Horror Movie
Dracula Unleashed combines the quality of a Hollywood movie, a challenging mystery to solve, and a new twist on the Dracula legend.
Unmask Dracula before time runs out for Alexander and his fiancee, Anisette. If you're clever, you could prevent many grisly deaths. Or not.

The music and story are enough to sink your fangs into, but the digitized video is too pixelated for my taste. The story and plot more than make up for the actors. [8 out of 10]
Dracula Unleashed has a great storyline that will keep you glued to your television. Definitely a good horror flick. [8 out of 10]
...is more of a movie that you direct rather than a video game. The full-motion video, although done very well, suffered a little from being too grainy. [6 out of 10]
This one requires a lot of thinking and shouldn't be thought of as a fast-action game like Night Trap or Sewer Shark. Let's see more like this one. [7 out of 10]
TOTAL REVIEW SCORE: 7.25 out of 10
