Without any doubt, Vampire Rain: Altered Species aims to be dark and terrifying, as every trailer we've seen thus far proves. Of course, we're still a little concerned about the gameplay (Vampire Rain on the Xbox 360 suffered from a few significant problems), but we're still holding out hope. The development team has had time to iron out a bunch of kinks, and the brutality and intimidating environment should be quite effective. We're hoping for an action game that also has the capability of invoking genuine fear in the player, much like a survival/horror game. In many ways, Altered Species seems a lot like Resident Evil, only with a heavier emphasis on all-out action.
