Let's Compare - Bram Stoker's Dracula
« on: October 09, 2015, 00:53:42 AM »
Here is a special Halloween Edition of Let's Compare.  To starts us off, let's look at a game that is definitely one for Halloween....Bram Stoker's Dracula

Bram Stoker's Dracula is a video game released for the NES/FC, SNES/SFC, Game Boy, Sega Master System, Mega Drive/Genesis, Sega CD, Sega Game Gear, MS-DOS and Amiga games consoles. Based on the 1992 movie of the same name, each version of the game was essentially identical (except for the Sega CD, Amiga and MS-DOS versions). The Amiga version was released in 1994 for North America and Europe.  A CD-ROM version for the MS-DOS PC was released in 1995.

Each console has a different styled genre game based on the film, and just about all the videogames you play as Jonathan Harker, who is one of the main protagonists of the Dracula film, and the original novel by Bram Stoker, which the film was based on.

I had no idea there were so many variations or the game was on that many systems. I only played it on Sega CD (and that was enough lol) but the Master System looks like fun. The DOS one looks like a cross between Doom and... severe boredom :)

We have reviews for the Sega Genesis/MD and CD versions on the Halloween page.  Anyone willing to volunteer to write reviews for some of the other versions?  ;)

Yes i remember this shite that Psygnosis put out on the Amiga after they had been bought by Sony, along with Cliffhanger and Last Action Hero, three games that weren't even worthy of a floppy disk!
