Mary Shelley's Frankenstein mixes an action/adventure game with one-on-one fighting. However, as Frankenstein knows, building something from disparate parts can produce mixed results. The lengthy treks to collect puzzle-solving objects are challenging but ultimately a no-brainer.

The graphical quality is wide- ranging. The 3D cinematics look amazing, but the side-view visuals are flat; the 3/4-overhead look just reveals dull scenery. Moreover, the limping Frankenstein looks like the Addams Family's Uncle Fester.

Frankenstein comes bundled with Bram Stoker's Dracula, another frightfully average CD game. This two-for-one deal's okay...at discount.

ProTips:

  • It's easy to find items, but you might need to use them elsewhere.
  • Some items help you avoid a fight. For example, there's one that puts Dr. Frankenstein to sleep.

Bram Stoker's Dracula
Bram Stoker's Dracula goes straight for the jugular with spine-chilling action so real you won't believe your eyes. Experience 7 terrifying levels - each divided into day and night - and plunge deep into the ultimate interactive movie, complete with incredible 16-bit graphics and great sound that bring to life the cold, dark dungeons of Castle Dracula, the brutal Transylvanian countryside and eerie 19th century London. During the day you'll search for the weapons while fighting off bloodthirsty bats and poisonous spiders. Then, as the sun sets, the evil Prince of Darkness rises and attacks as a bat, a vicious wolf, even as an old man. But make no mistake... he must be stopped!
