Vampire Rain starts off with a terrible cut-scene which right off the bat shows the incredibly terrible visuals of the game. It almost reminds me of when I first played Resident Evil 2, except that was acceptable because I was playing it on N64. Right after I get over the looks of the game, which is very quickly because I?ve always said graphics don?t make the game, I realize that the voice acting is equally terrible. I feel like I?m in some kind of independent film, and not in a good way. Come to think of it that also reminds me of Resident Evil 2 but again, that was on N64.

As I start to play the game I get a Splinter Cell sort of feel, sneaking all around in a crouched position I walk over roof tops and weave in and out of stairwells all the while watching about three minutes of ugly cut-scenes about every five minutes. Weaponry is scattered throughout the game in various corners, and random places. Very N64 like, there is no thought process as to why these weapons are just sitting out in the open.

As you come across the first enemy it is very apparent that out of all the random weapons sitting around the city not one is powerful enough for these crazy vampire creatures. Sneaking is the best choice for a large portion of the first part of the game. I died about three times before I figured this out, which produces a cut scene of the vampire ripping me to shreds, which reminds me of Resident Evil 2 where the exact same thing happened.

Needless to say it doesn?t get very much better throughout the game. Better weapons are acquired for more realistic defenses but this is still a game lacking in everything and I can?t help but have the overwhelming feeling that this is a very late Resident Evil 2 rip off.
