I must say that I particularly enjoyed the topic and the presentation of this Her Interactive adventure. Actually a lot of suspense arises and it is possible, that one frightened wince, if something unexpected occurs. A real Mystery Thriller! Elena is not a vampire hunter such as Buffy, you'll do without action in favor of imaginativeness and thinking.
The Vampire Diaries is not an easy game to get hold of, but unlike some much sought after games it's good entertainment. True to Her Interactive objectives, I suspect Elena will appeal to many female players, but anyone can enjoy this game. I certainly enjoyed myself, and would particularly like to see Elena continue where she left off.
Because of the vampire theme and the difficulty level of this program, it is not recommended for children under the age of 12. It requires a patient user, who enjoys unraveling mysteries, is intrigued by the supernatural, and is not easily frustrated or discouraged. Beautifully prepared, and extremely complete, the program's main downfall is that it is too difficult for its intended users.
Machart und Qualität der Videos samt dazugehörigem Schepperton sind bestenfalls auf dem Stand der Technik zu Beginn der PC-Video-Ära. Das gute halbe Dutzend Schauplätze engt die ohnehin knappen Bewegungsmöglichkeiten noch mehr ein. Außerdem sind mir Story und Puzzles einfach zu fadenscheinig und dürftig. Besonders nervig ist die nachlässig gestaltete Steuerung. Weitere lästige technische Mängel saugen mir dann noch den letzten Rest Energie ab.
