Unable to ignore her call for blood, she is returning to Transylvania.

The two first parts of the trilogy try to adapt the Bram Stoker-Dracula. They are entertaining, creepy and with some nice ideas. But in my opinion, Dracula 3 is one of the best adventures ever made.There are no connections to the two first parts. I'll explain why I think it's alone worth the price:
Dracula - Path of the Dragon features a very interesting, gripping and intelligentread more story, that merges real history with myth in a very elaborate way. The Dracula we have here is not a cliché, it's Vlad Tepes, the Impaler, one of the most ambivalent and cruel characters of slavic history and the prototype and inspiration for Bram Stoker. In the role of a jesuit priest, we are sent to investigate a little village in the carpatian mountains right after WW1. The land is devastated, everything is under the pressure of the post-war years - but there is also something more, something very old and evil in these lands... The game features some of the coolest riddles to solve and the story develops step for step. We read many fascinating documents, get in touch with sinister characters and organisations (that really existed in the time) and try to find our way between a historical figure and the myth around it. The game is a very different and original approach to the Dracula-myth.

The developers chose for those games a historical approach and documented of the famous myth built around Dracula. The texts are excellent, particularly those on Von Kruger and Irina Bocsow who defend remarkably their point of view on vampires belief ^^
The dubbing is very good, even for Dracula who had a few difficult lines. Maria's dubber is however the worst in the group (forread more example when she says "maybe it was more than dreams" it sounds totally ridiculous).
I liked the two littles games on probability (optional) of the bohemian and in general the "intelligent" aspect of the games, a little maths in a video game is very rare but it feels good. The enigmas are really difficult and well found (especially the one with granulocytes and the one with pictures to develop which are certainly two of the best enigmas ever offered in a video game)
You've understood we're far from idiot capcom-ish enigmas like "insert the cube in the cubical hole"...

It's easy to let ourself go to the charm of the Vladovice village where the story starts and stays stuck between reality and myths (vampires' genesis) and historical elements, with thrilling video sequences that makes you jump out of bed.
The enigmas are doable, maybe not one or two that might require more patience and thinking.
A good game for summer nights.
