Dracula är ett mediokert plattformsspel. Spelet ligger i kategorin "har du sett ett så har du sett alla", och man spelar igenom Dracula på som mest en dag - just för att man har sett allt förut, och vet precis hur man ska göra. Man frågar sig: går det inte att göra originella spel? Varför inte låta Dracula ha huvudrollen i spelet och låta honom suga blod ur snygga bruvdar samtidigt som han ska försöka ta över världen och slåss mot vampyrjägare (som i serien).
So, the final verdict. Dracula on the Genesis is a competent action platformer that doesn’t have any outstanding qualities that will grab your attention. It does just enough to satisfy the requirements for the genre, and that’s it which is different from most movie licensed titles that are rushed out in a poor state to capitalize on the film’s popularity (or lack thereof). It’s no Castlevania or Master of Darkness to be sure, but it should keep you entertained for the 40-45 minutes it takes to complete.
All Game Guide
Bram Stoker's Dracula provides a sufficient challenge, but the game is not overly fun. The bosses can be challenging, but you will probably lose most of your health energy by getting snagged on some incredibly annoying spears that pop up at many points throughout the game. There are hidden passages throughout that are marginally enjoyable to explore, and like I said earlier, the graphics are very nice. The music is also very cool. Unfortunately, the game comes up short in terms of pure gameplay.
The Video Game Critic
The scenery is not particularly creepy and the music is way too upbeat. Although there are some cool enemies like skeletons, zombies, and werewolves, you are more likely to be taken down by all those annoying tiny rats that scurry around each level. And there are cheap hits galore! Spears shoot out above or below you, giving you no warning or time to react. Heck, even when you know they're coming they're impossible to avoid. All-in-all, Dracula is very mediocre.
