The start of this epic, entertaining saga is not to be missed. Check out what the critics are raving about:
"A well-developed story line, unique controls, and fresh game play throughout leave you wanting more... a serious addition to the shooting game genre, and packs some serious unique and fresh designs to keep game play fun throughout." - 148Apps
"a macabre 3D shooter reminiscent of Alone in the Dark and early Resident Evil titles... The story that ties it all together, well rendered in cartoon-style cut scenes, did have me anxious to see how things turn out." - TouchArcade
"Vampire Origins feeds on folklore rather than saps it. Of course, it's gameplay that counts, and the quality combination of tap-action and adventure is enthralling." - PocketGamer
"Dracula games hardly get any better than Vampire Origins. Awesome gothic environment, a spooky soundtrack, pretty easy controls, and nerve-wrecking atmosphere should keep you glued to your device through the end." - Geek.com

Great Horror Game
At first I wasn't sure but for the price I took a chance. The game feels like the old Van Helsing game for the ps2, the character even looks like him too. Which isn't bad, if you like that style of game play and level design. The sword play, though as the player, we don't do too much in moving the character. Just swipe our fingers at certain times, during these boss battles. Its visually nice just to watch the action unfold. As for the difficulty, theres two modes. I only tried the normal and was able to beat it only using the normal gun you start with. But there are some challenging areas and puzzles, but overall its enough for any gamer to get into and not feel frustrated by it. Only downside I felt was really was just like one other reviewer stated, the game ends abruptly. The story, which I have to say is very well done builds up about this one vampire and it ends suddenly with never going so far to get face to face with it. Hopefully there's a sequel or and update to continue the story, I was really getting into it! 5 stars overall, worth the 99 cents!
Thrilling and Beautiful. Eager for Sequel!!
This game is creepy, gorgeous, and thoroughly enthralling. It did end a little sooner than I hoped, but the gameplay was enjoyably challenging and utterly engrossing, with superb soundtrack and graphics that made me want to linger in this world. Great story and character, and action that can be pretty darned challenging (and fun!). The atmosphere, the unexpected surprises, and my numerous deaths had me pretty jumpy! I was very sad to finish this game.
One of my favorite action RPGs on the iPhone. I rarely replay an RPG after completing, but I keep coming back to this one, and I check the app store several times a month to see if a sequel is out yet.
By the way, I don't even like the whole annoying vampire craze of the past few years, but this game is so good that it won me over in spite of that. Highly recommended, especially for fans of action RPGs, and those who appreciate compelling story and aesthetics in a game.
Lots of slaying fun
This is apparently the first title in a saga. I really enjoyed it.
The story is engaging and there are a few puzzles to solve along the way. It is a short game, but well worth the price for the entertainment value. The controls worked great. To shoot at enemies you can either press the fire button icon and shoot at the targeted enemy OR tap whatever target you choose to shoot.
The sword fights against the bosses were fun too. I found myself watching the fight and almost forgetting to follow the screen prompts to defend and attack.
There is also a survival mode that I haven't had much chance to play, but adds some additional value to the game.
If you like third-person shooters and/or vampires, and want a fun challenge, go ahead and get VO Reloaded.
Hopefully the next part will be released soon and will also be compatible with my "old school" 3G iPhone.
