Can you swap around your abilities if you don’t like the ones u picked?

Vampyr is a very good game. Nice story, script and atmosphere. I liked the combat too. The boss fights tend to be time taking if you are not consuming blood of citizens but it was very satisfying at the end.

My only complaints about the game are the forced mini-bosses and their tendency to call in minions from an invisible dropship. And the camera in combat. Otherwise, love the game.

I have absolutely hated many of the new single player games. This has been a good one so far.

Me and my wife have been playing it side by side on 2 consoles and we both love it its interesting to seen our different play styles I have spared everyone to keep combat difficult where she embraces the scummy ppl cuz the combat is to difficult for her its interesting to seen the different stories unfold and we have easily sunk 20 hrs into it already love it definitely worth buying

Combat=Bloodborne looking, yet weird and boring

The voice acting in this game is pretty solid. I don't remember any stand-out moments, good or bad. The dialogue itself can be a bit circuitous with optional dialogue like asking a question, receiving an answer, then proceeding with the primary option only for the character to ask the same question he just got an answer to. That kind of thing really got under my skin and began to feel like those extra options were just wasting my time. The combat is enjoyable at the best of times and rage inducing at the worst. Blinking from left to right while a lone human desperately tries to reload his crossbow in a dark alley is pretty exhilarating; it really captures the feeling of the nocturnal apex predator. However, at least on the Xbox One, enemies have a tendency to close wide distances between themselves and the player during attack animations that result in unfair hits. If I had a dollar for every time an enemy started an attack from across the street and slid into me for some cheap damage I'd be as wealthy as a Dawson (ha). Stamina is a vital resource in this game's combat system and you want to use it as judiciously as possible. If a target is outside of melee range, you don't want to waste stamina by dodging or parrying an attack that shouldn't have a chance of hitting you. Sometimes that works, but a lot of the time it doesn't. A lot of the deaths I suffered during my playtime were a direct result of this particular enemy behavior. The game was under a tight budget, so it's understandable for the combat to take more of a backseat role during development. It definitely feels more functional than it does enjoyable. Sometimes it just feels like filler between story bits. I would have loved to see the combat and exploration expanded into a more stealth-action style like what we see in titles such as Horizon: Zero Dawn or Dishonored. Walking down the same street and encountering the same group of baddies just got a bit tedious for me. I'm about 90% of the way through the story right now. Looking forward to finishing it. Just waiting for the game to recover from it's latest crash. :P

Remember Me was awesome..i still remember that game. Vampyr is stylish, not optimized very well, cool gui, but the npc interactions are the meat on the bone on this one. The combat is basic, but challenging. And probably the story. Seems interesting, havent finished it yet, but the game couldnt bore me to tears, so my interest is still high. Having played Andromeda....i was bored after the first planet..aka first 10 minutes...not even the hideous facial animations can save that game. Vampire The Masquarade bloodlines was basically the only modern singleplayer rpg free roaming sandbox vampire game we had....im glad Vampyr can take a place by the side of that game so now we have 2.

After an entire play through this game is pretty good 6/10. The combat is clunky and unresponsive but it makes it for it with some good story and choices actually matter, but the combat is such a big part of the game so 6/10 is being generous. After hours of playing combat became like a chore.

I just picked it up - tbh I was hoping for another Bloodlines. Who says single player is dead? Between games like God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn.... Some people are not paying attention.

SPOILEEEERI choose to charm the nurse in Whitechapel thinking that way she could still work in tge hosputal and help the district as well. In return, the result was totally unexpected, and without warning. Sometimes you kill people without intention in this game. The worst part is that she was a nice person, and the pillar of the local community. I think this gamr is just as good as Vampire The Masquerade.
Ides of March (18 days ago)
The negative is that it's too addictive.

Helpful hint to anyone planning on eating people, if you want eat someone, make sure you can and do eat their entire social circle or eat people who have no social circle

I didnt like the plot with lady Ashbury, the love of our main character for her feels fake since there wasn't enough character development with her imo
sk8flipout29 (19 days ago)
Will they be adding more content to this game in the near future? I’ve played around 20-30 hours. And I love it! It really pulls you into the stories talking to people. And you don’t need to kill anyone to get xp. So I recommend this game !
tewdin (19 days ago)
The story is great and atmosphere ok, but I don't understand how people give so good reviews when combat system is so broken. They should have used Batman's combat and stealth system. I wanted to be a stalker, but there is no real stealth and you actually have to fight against people who can take multiple shots without even slowing down. No counter attacks and very hard to dodge attacks in small space. Dodge does not even work if you're taking a lot of beating. And there has been a lot of combat in first few hours.
Edge of Awesome (20 days ago)
You focused on melee damage? No wonder battles sucked for you.. almost everyone in game is resistant to melee damage. Gotta go for the Shadow and Blood damage types. :)

resistance1207 (23 days ago)
The game is actually pretty damn long, I've played 26 hours, and still probably have about 6 - 7 hours of gameplay left. Done all of the side-quests in each district apart from The West End, cured people constantly, level 23 at this point and I've only killed one person, the murderer Seymour.

I just like vampire movies blade etc....and it's been a while since playing BloodRayne. I very much enjoy playing Vampyr its soulish at times but the combat is fit for vampires not human or mages in dark souls

@ gameranx I always wonder why there is so much struggle with pronunciation, while the internet is packed with all kinds of tools to help people out. :P Vampyr in english sounds like 'vampeer' according to english pronunciation. If I'm not sure I often use Google Translate to check pronunciation. https://translate.google.nl/#en/nl/Vampyr. Easy as Hell. Use it and never sound like a highschool dropout again. :P

I've beaten this game and i really liked it, it's good and the story keeps you going, it's interesting. Game's heavily plagued by technical problems though (like random FPS drops, indicating a bad optimization for the PC port), Dontnod should release a patch fixing these problems in the PC version.
argel1200 (25 days ago)
Just finished it last night. Great game, hope we see more from the setting. Amazing job for a AA title. Never killed anyone outside of combat. Ended at level 30. Upgrade your weapons and boost your stamina!
Luka Hays (25 days ago)
This is a really good game so far. The writing is great, the voice acting is on point, and I even think the combat is pretty solid. It did take but to grow on me, but once you unlock a few abilities it’s really quite fun and a lot better than combat in VTM (which is otherwise a fantastic game). Also, this game has the dialogue system that Fallout 4 should’ve had.
Bryan Ingram (26 days ago)
My only complaint with the game is the long af loading screens.
mrturboman tench (26 days ago)
looks fun but wait for sale
Sheldon Dankleberg (26 days ago)
Honestly I don't care much for vampire stuff, I just need a good single player rpg. I mean in the mass effect or dragon age way, decent gameplay, but the dialogue and choices are the best parts.
Timothy Hillis (26 days ago)
God video bro! Gonna buy it now that u recommend it! Single player games are only dead to people that wanna monotize games and make casual and new gamers believe they are dead!
Zac Richmond (26 days ago)
Combat was pretty sick compared to what everybody had thought.
SuperKinahead (27 days ago)
Tbh i think if this was in first person it wouldve made the game 100 times better. And also no stealth? Whats up with that? It just feels weird not being able to hide around a corner, and sneak past. I mean when you kill an "innocent" or embrace em that choice affects the game. But human enemies dont affect your choices aswell?
Hextin (27 days ago)

Torc Soulburn (27 days ago)
The game took me out of any immersion i could experience by a loading screen in the middle of combat or just walking around in general. Maybe if they fix that it would be a better game to me
fountainhead (28 days ago)
So, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines is still the reigning king of vampire games, I take it?

I believe it's pronounced "VAMP-er," like you're a southern redneck.

Kane Templar (29 days ago)
Loved Vampyr, so much so I played it through 3 times, got the Platinum, saw both endings and I am longing for more vampire games of this type, though hopefull with slighlty more polished combat and some bug fixes. I loved how characters reacted to certain deaths, and how districts we're impacted by the choices made. It made me feel conected to thr situation and like the reviewer made me very selective (on mt free for all playthrough) about who and why I chose to kill, on occasion the dialogue felt long winded but overall kept me engrosed and interested, as doughtfull as DLC or a sequal would be I would find either/both most welcome, and even though this title had a low budget they produced in my opinion a great triple A game, more deep narative single player games are needed.
cmoneytheman (29 days ago)
I dont kno why this wasnt on the list of games like souls i been playin it week now looks like in cutscenes same style as life is strange but the regular angle looks like a closer angle of nier or neverdead and the world looks and plays like souls game this is the first souls type with a story no other souls knockoff or souls game had one and the story is not to good only in parts but the actin is good
Ronnie Neill (29 days ago)
Agree with you 👍 what's the point in playing a vampire game AS the vampire and not drinking blood of certain individuals? It is fun carefully selecting who plus experiencing the powers levelled up 👌🎮 great game 😎
Goastoid (29 days ago)
I pre-ordered but have yet to play it, the combat is definitely whats keeping me away from this game :/

The combat make you feel like a predator playing with you food, you can kill and eat them at any moment but you just dance around dodging.
Joshua Chow (1 month ago)
You probably meant hematology instead of phlebotomy? Phlebotomy just means puncturing a vein. But since he is a vampire, you could technically say that he's a phlebotomist. However, his specialty in medicine would be surgery and hematology.

Rob G (1 month ago)
It's a very good game atmospheric and storywise, but I find the combat twitchy and frustrating. The lack of character control and camera angles are my main gripes. But, if you are used to combat RPG's, like Dark Souls, Witcher, Shadow of Mordor ect., it likely won't be much of an issue.
Jennifer Bibi (1 month ago)
They should have had a fast travel option like Fallout. It got to be a drag after a while, running between areas.
Brady Burns (1 month ago)
Yeah, whenever it came out I thought you pronounced it Vam- Pier instead of Pyre so it got of got etched into my brain so it took a while for it to go away, lmao.

Funny enough, you'd pronounce it "Vampeer" in German, so I'd be like "Vampeer", no, it's "Vampire". Just the other way round :D
