At its core Vampyr has an intriguing hook and setting. You take control of a renowned doctor who has recently been turned into a vampire, in a post World War 1 London plagued by the terrifying Spanish Flu epidemic. As a doctor do you protect those you swore to help, or do you give in to your primal vampiric instincts? With ambition to spare, Vampyr is a largely lackluster experience that fails to bring its various elements together into a cohesive and fun game. But despite its many failings, it has a ton of heart and by the end I became heavily invested in this curious and intricate Victorian era supernatural drama.
