Suburban Timewaster

I play video games and review them.

Vampire Saga: Pandora’s Box (Bigfishgames.com)

Tyler’s grandfather calls him for help.  Before his grandfather tells him what it’s about, he reveals a secret he has kept from his family for many years.

The story flashes back to the 19th century while having interludes in the 1950s.  In the 19th century, Tyler’s grandfather fled the war in Spain by becoming a stowaway on a ship called Pandora.  After a while, he wishes he boarded a different ship.  Tyler’s having trouble believing this but goes along with what his grandfather tells him.

This is actually realistic because no matter how crazy a loved one may sound, we still want to give them the benefit of the doubt.  One thing I don’t get is that in the second segment Tyler tells his grandfather that he believes him and in the last segment writes in his journal that he should be calling the police.  It seems like they screwed up the timing on that.

This is the classic hidden object game.  You collect random crap just to add one item to your inventory.

Then you play a few mini-games and press hint or skip when you’re having trouble.  There’s a journal in the corner that will give you access to the character’s thoughts.  The further you get in the story, the more you discover.

The game is addicting and spooky at times.  I give it 7 out of 10, back when the Vampire Saga games were actually good.  I swear that made me sound like an old woman.
