It is a misty evening in the year of our lord 1912. The Pattersons, a poor but proud aristocratic family of the British nobility, and some of their closest friends, arrive at the castle Malachi residence of a wealthy Romanian Count. It is only three days until the family's eldest daughter, Rebecca, is to be wed to the count's son, uniting the family with the rich heritage of the Malachi, hopefully restoring its glory.
The only person missing is you, the brother of the bride, who is on your way from Stockholm, where you have defended the Union Jack in the noble art of fencing in the Olympics. You are to arrive later during the evening.
Sir Patterson is disappointed when the Count himself doesn't greet the family at their arrival, but still he lets the servants show them all to their rooms, without complaining too loudly. It is not until later--when the doors are slammed shut and locked behind them, that he realizes his mistake that they have become prisoners and are at the Count's mercy...
Highly intense, first-person shooter, survival horror
Enemies appearing shock style from everywhere
A massive gothic castle with hundreds of rooms awaits your arrival
The random architecture generator changes the layout of the castle and location of the characters every time you play
Non-linear style game play, where different parts of the castle can be explored in whatever order you want
Pick up and bring your foes down with classic vampire slayers like holy water, crucifixes, and wooden stakes or old-fashioned firearms like flintlock guns and muskets
Some vampires can only be slain with specific weapons, which challenges the player's weapon tactics
Spine-chilling scores and sound effects seamlessly orchestrated to keep you on the edge of your seat
Eerie 3D-graphics with real-time lighting, grainy screens, fog, and mist to give you that classic horror feel
When you start a new game people you need to save get randomly placed in the castle and you need to find them fast, once you find somebody and lead him to the exit you will be rewarded with a gun or other stuff (whatever the guy has to offer you). Ammo does not grow on trees, so you must be careful with the weapons or you will most likely lose your ammo fast. You also have a cross to keep some enemies away. In short - this is a horror survival game, with the time being your biggest enemy.
You ever want to find good old games? Or old gems? Nosferatu isn't the latest title in the gaming market, but it's definitely an old gem. By the description of the game itself, even without reading a review, I think you get the picture of the game. YES, it's a scary game. You killed (or get killed by) demons, werewolves, and more. It's one nasty and creepy trip to hell itself. It has that old-school atmosphere too. I like that, when a game has this old-school atmosphere or reminds of old-school gameplay. Don't hope for the graphics to be unbelievable or something like that, by the way. The price it has, it's worth it, and should be higher for such a game. You own guns and other stuff that you can use, and one of them is a crucifix! How awesome is that? You spread light to demons! I think it's gameplay will keep you interested. I personally liked the game. Even though it's price is already low, if you find it on a sale and you're sceptical of purchasing it, I think it's a good choice.
One glaring problem that this game has is inability to up the resolution. This game would be so much better if you could play it in full screen mode as it would add to the immersion factor quite a lot. Other than that, Nosferatu has good things going for it also. The tension is built through creepy surroundings via architecture, character design and ambient sounds. There is also no possibility to save so use your one life well. The running speed is reminiscent of old school FPS games so that can be taken as a nostalgia factor or as a hinderance on immersion. I wasn't able to enjoy the game very long, mainly because of the small screen resolution. It is hard to make out things from it and it distracts from the game. I cannot really recommend the game as it is unless you feel like you can overlook the graphic flaws. I suggest you look at some gameplay videos before deciding your purchase.
Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi reminds me of old shooters with a better 3d graphics and very dark atmosphere. There are many original weapons that I'm sure wasn't used in many, or even probably in noone, games before: crucifix, holy water and few more. Fighting enemies brings so much joy, some of them are really demanding and you will need something more than pressing a left mouse button. UI is also nice. Sure, this game have many years on it's back and maybe it's not so scary like it used to be more than 10 years ago but it's still a game worth playing. Doesn't matter if you are fan of horror shooters, old games, etc. Nosferatu is unique experience,
This is a pretty good, tension filled, horror shooter which lives up to the conventions of the genre and each minute of playing this game will be filled with scary, jumpy experiences. The graphics in the game are nothing special but they serve their purpose of making the game much more immersive and therefore scary. The sound design is also a stellar part of the game and the various effects in the game help to create an even more immersive atmosphere. The gunplay is well handled in the game and each of the many weapons feel realistic. This game is a very good game for fans of the horror genre and I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys games such as the FEAR series
