An action-RPG set in Victorian era London where you get to play as a morally conflicted Vampire, certainly sounds like a great premise. And as per our review from creature of the night Seamus Mullins, Vampyr turned out to be something that he enjoyed sinking his teeth into. But, the taste was not without problems.
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.
