When this game ended and I finally got to sit back from the "edge of my seat", I experienced the two emotions that ultimately determine for me whether or not the game's story was successfully delivered and enjoyed. Did I feel relief from the tension of managing to progress through the excitement of the game? And…Was I sorry that the game was over, because I would have wanted it to continue? The answer to each question is a resounding "Yes". This is a story for all of you horror-adventure fans out there and it is not to be missed.

Adventurespiele (Jun 13, 2005)
Es handelt sich um ein sehr schönes, reines Adventure. Sterben kannst Du nicht, daher ist es auch nicht zwingend erforderlich ständig abzuspeichern. Das Spiel ist graphisch sehr schön und wird allein mit der Maus gesteuert. An manchen Stellen musst Du allerdings ziemlich genau mit der Maus arbeiten, um ins nächste Bild gehen zu können. Man gewöhnt man sich sjedoch schnell an diese Steuerung. Die Rätsel sind teilweise nicht ganz einfach.

This game is not earth-shattering. It breaks no new ground. What it is is a solid, atmospheric adventure game that follows a linear path and features puzzles of increasing difficulty. The novice and the more experienced gamer can both enjoy it on their own terms. Dracula Resurrection is currently not available in North America, but with any luck it soon will be. We happen to know that a few companies are interested in purchasing the distribution rights. Advertise to the Anne Rice/Stephen King crowd and, combined with the current revival in horror action/adventure games like Resident Evil on the Playstation and Nocturne on the computer, this could be a title that encourages many to attempt a pure adventure game for the first time. Virgin blood so to speak. Let's put a stake through the heart of the bloodthirsty for once and show our support for a game that doesn't suck.

Aventura y Cía (Aug 14, 2001)
Especialemente recomendada a aquellos que encuentren atrayentes estas aventuras pero nunca se hayan atrevido a jugarlas por el miedo de ver tan sólo puzzles encadenados uno tras otro. No, Drácula Resurrección es diferente. Sería una perfecta carta de presentación del spin-o-rama para iniciados y curiosos, o para aquellos aventureros no exigentes que tan sólo deseen descansar un poco tras haber jugado a otras aventuras más largas.

Adventure Island (Jun 27, 2008)
Een korte, maar goede en sfeervolle adventure met prachtige graphics, een interessant verhaal en heerlijke gameplay. Jammer van de kleine hotspots en wat kleine minpuntjes die ik in de review beschreven heb. Een dik verdiende 8.

Jeuxvideo.com (Nov 22, 1999)
Indéniablement, dès l'intro, on est pris à la gorge par l'ambiance de Dracula... on sentirait presque le froid de Transylvanie s'échapper de l'écran et nous fouetter le visage ! Le graphisme, le son, les animations des personnages... c'est du haut de gamme. Dracula est cependant limité par un cheminement des énigmes incertain et un scénario un peu creux. Mais au finish, c'est une belle réussite.

Quandary (Jan, 2000)
Just like Dracula himself this game has been well and truly kept in the dark. What a very pleasant surprise it turned out to be even though it has a familiar damsel in distress theme. It's a most enjoyable trip which isn't too difficult, but will surely entertain you all the way through. It's a game I would certainly recommend for beginners because of the way in which the problems get progressively more difficult, but don't miss out on it just because you think you're too clever. It deserves to be a 'hit' and the popular Vampire theme could, possibly, ensnare a new wave of adventure game players.

IGN (Jun 22, 2000)
Hell has frozen over. People are rioting in the streets. The Messiah has assumed a position on the IGN PC staff and decided to delay Judgment Day until after Diablo II ships. We've finally found a cure for Tal's problem with Tourette's Syndrome. Impossible? Nay, anything's possible if Dreamcatcher Interactive can finally publish a decent game.

Power Play (Mar, 2000)
Geübte Spieler haben den Ausflug nach Transsylvanien sicher schnell absolviert, was nicht gerade für die Komplexität des zwei CD-ROMs umfassenden, reinrassigen Adventures spricht. Etwas enttäuschend ist auch das Ende des Spiels, das förmlich nach einer Fortsetzung schreit... Daß einen „Dracula - Resurrection“ dennoch in seinen Bann zieht, verdankt der Titel in erster Linie den superben Videosequenzen, wie Jonathans rasanter Lorenfahrt oder seine unheimliche Begegnung mit drei Mätressen des Grafen.

Fazer um jogo enfocando a vida (ou morte) do príncipe das trevas não é uma tarefa nada fácil. Além disso, determinar qual categoria o jogo irá assumir é outra decisão muito importante. O recente game Drácula, da Infogrames, é lançado com opiniões completamente diferentes dentre os especialistas e, talvez, dê um novo rumo para os games de terror.

The foray into Dracula's castle is a blast, and the game is heavy with atmosphere, though this too is diminished somewhat by the cut-scene style of game play. This atmosphere is almost all due to the graphics, and I found that the sound / music did very little to add (or detract) from the overall effect. I have to say, though, that I had a lot of fun with this one, despite its drawbacks. While it is not what I have come to expect from a game trying to compete in today's market, it was an enjoyable departure from the usual fare.

Dracula Resurrection is categorized as an adventure game, but it felt more like a cross between an adventure game and an interactive movie.

GameSpy (Jul 11, 2000)
Essentially, Dracula: Resurrection is a Myst clone, yet, (shock, horror!) a quite superior Myst clone. It has enough original ideas to make it, if not unique, not merely Myst in Dracula's clothing. If you enjoyed Myst, then rejoice, this is the game for you. If not, the game may still appeal because it is not as surreal as Myst itself. In short, this is one game to watch.

Dracula sieht nett aus, auch wenn die verblüffend an Atlantis erinnernde Engine keine Fledermaus aus dem Dachgebälk haut. Die Atmosphäre ist dank Schauerschunkelhorror-Gedudel recht dicht und einem Vampirspiel angemessen. Die Rätsel bleiben durchgehend logisch und sind jeweils durch eine kurze Render-Sequenz in Szene gesetzt. Das größte Problem liegt in den zu verwendenden Objekten. Deren Optik verhält sich nämlich zu 90 Prozent äquivalent zur ostfriesischen Nationalflagge: weißer Adler auf weißem Grund. Nur dass sich bei Dracula die Gegenstands- und Umgebungsfarben genrerichtig eher im braunen Camouflage-Spektrum aufhalten.

“Drácula: Resurrección” no es un mal juego y no es una mala opción para aquellos que no tienen grandes títulos por jugar. Es una aventura que, si bien no encandilará a nadie, sí que se deja jugar fácilmente. Los gráficos están muy bien realizados, es sencillo, lógico, la historia es interesante y resulta agradable de jugar. Incluso puede resultar aceptable para aquellos a los que no les suelen gustar las aventuras en primera persona. Además, su lógica y sencillez son dos aspectos interesantes de cara a aquellos que se están iniciando en este mundo.
66
Dracula hätte ein echter Hit werden können, wenn man ein nicht ganz so starres Interface verwendet hätte, die Rätsel knackiger und das Spiel ein wenig umfangreicher ausgefallen wäre. So bleibt ein wirklich hübsches Spiel, das spielerisch allerdings recht simpel ist. Für Einsteiger aber daher empfehlenswert.

PC Joker (Mar, 2000)
Die Präsentation ist hervorragend: krasse animierte Grafik und herrlich dramatische Musik - allein die deutsche Sprachausgabe enttäuscht. Aber auch das Gameplay könnte straffer sein und so bleibt nur ein mittelprächtiges Adventure als Quasi-Fortsetzung von Bram Stokers berühmtem Roman.

Gamer's Pulse (Jul 13, 2000)
So overall, the game certainly has its ups and downs. Good graphics don’t always make a good game…this is a lesson that has been proven true over and over again in the past. However, Dracula Resurrection, despite its weak plot and flat characters, has its moments, and although few and infrequent, almost made up for the fact that I wasn’t having any fun playing it.

Przygodoskop (May 14, 2007)
Trudno wystawić Draculi pełną pochwał laurkę, bo gra zwyczajnie na nią nie zasługuje. Jest wtórna, banalnie prosta i skandalicznie krótka, a cyniczne zagranie z nie wyjaśniającym nic zakończeniem budzi lekki niesmak. Z drugiej strony, tytuł jest technicznie dopracowany, a chwile (a w zasadzie "chwilę") przy nim spędzone wspomina się bardzo przyjemnie. Podsumowując wypada więc stwierdzić, że Zmartwychwstanie to idealna gra dla początkujących - lekka, łatwa i przyjemna. Bardziej doświadczeni gracze "zaliczą" ją w jeden wieczór i bez sentymentu odłożą na półkę.

GameSpot (Jun 21, 2000)
At the end of Bram Stoker's Dracula, the evil count was destroyed, turned to dust after being exposed to the rays of the setting sun. The hero of the book, Jonathan Harker, and his wife, Mina, were reunited, as her ailment was lifted with the death of the first and most famous of all vampires.

PC Games (Germany) (Mar 01, 2000)
Es wird wohl kein Zufall sein, dass der Graf in Dracula Resurrection aussieht wie eine abgehalfterte Mischung aus Iggy Pop und Marilyn Manson. So alt, wie der Bösewicht in der Havas-Umsetzung wirkt, erscheint auch das Spielkonzept. Konventionelle Rätsel im "Finde-Schlüssel-und-stecke-ihn-ins-Schloss"-Stil, hölzerne Dialoge und eine Story, die erst nach Stunden einigermaßen in Gang kommt - die Vampirgeschichte scheitert in praktisch allen Punkten, die für ein gelungenes Adventure relevant sind. Hinzu kommt, dass die Jagd auf den wiederbelebten Blutsauger recht kurz ausgefallen ist: Selbst Anfänger dürften mit Dracula Resurrection kaum länger als zwei oder drei Abende beschäftigt sein.

Gry OnLine (May 22, 2001)
Mimo to gry Dracula: Zmartwychwstanie nie można polecić nawet najbardziej zagorzałym fanom przygodówek. Przygoda w Transylwanii potrwa maksymalnie pół godziny. Później po prostu wieje nudą, a gra z powodzeniem zaczyna denerwować. Nawet w miarę niska cena nie powinna skusić nikogo do zakupu tej gry. Twórcy mieli dobry materiał na hit, ale nie potrafili tego wykorzystać. Ciekawe czy kiedykolwiek ukaże się porządna gra z Draculą w roli głównej ? Oby

This is a competent extension of the legend of Dracula that has no major flaws and has quite intriguing graphics and sound. With nothing really novel to offer, and a short gameplay experience with few characters, locales, or tantalizing puzzles, this adventure-puzzle game is best suited for novice adventurers. But even they will not feel a sense of delightful fright, nor will they be able to settle the score once and for all with Dracula himself. For you few inveterate gothic horror lovers who just cannot stay away, and who realize that this will just be a pleasurable diversion rather than a deeply immersive full-fledged adventure escapade, bring out the garlic and get ready for a brief but memorable excursion into the world of the undead.

Die schicken Renderschauplätze werden von Billigrätseln zusammengehalten: das Spiel ist im Nu gelöst. Freunde guter Computergrafik müssen sich entscheiden: Dracula kaufen, oder doch lieber sechs mal Toy Story 2 ansehen?

The Game Hoard (Oct 17, 2018)
Perhaps it was not feasible at the time, but Dracula: Resurrection really should have been combined with its sequel into a singular, more robust title. As it stands, this game moves at a quick pace and connects its moments of movie-like presentation with some decent item puzzles, but too much effort was put into the visuals rather than the gameplay. Stiff movement makes it a bother to look around for the parts of the puzzle you need to progress, and while things gradually get more difficult appropriately, the plot wraps up without answering many of the big questions, leaving the player who was satisfied seeing the path open up due to their problem solving acumen suddenly denied the ultimate reward for all their efforts.

PC Gamer UK (Aug, 2000)
And that really is all you would want to know. My recommendations? Don't buy it. Don't talk about it. Don't commit it beyond your short-term memory. If you see it in the shops, hide the box behind a copy of Lula. If a relative gives it to you as a gift, cut their photos out of the family albums. If your dog chews on it, take it to the vet with great haste.
