    VERY GOOD
    9
    • Pros
    • A balanced challenge
    • Effective resource management
    • Surprises in progression within certain biomes
    • Ambiance and atmosphere
    • Cons
    • Very challenging in solo
    • Its new price

    V Rising is an excellent survival and adventure game. The game is surprising at first with its day/night mechanic because, yes, we are a vampire and vampires burn in the sun. But as you progress, you realize that your character gains power and resilience.

    The game is balanced in terms of difficulty if you play with others; for me, I found it very challenging solo.

    The construction of the castle is very enjoyable with plenty of customization options to make a castle that reflects our vampire.

    The progression is well-executed. It allows advancement in the game by defeating certain bosses and unlocking new recipes and powers. I like games where some resources that seem abundant and uninteresting at first take on a whole new dimension later in the game.

    In summary, V Rising is an excellent survival and adventure game where you can spend a certain number of hours.

    Ffull PvP survival loot box
    7

    V Rising is a full PvP survival loot box with the option of PvE servers or solo inventory drops. Take on groups of 4, 2 or play alone. Upgrade your castle and become the lord of the vampires. »

    There are different types of official servers, in addition to the possibility of creating our own servers and games with rules adapted to the way we like best.

    The official server modes are:
    – PvE: Purely PvE servers, without PvP or settlement of castles between players. Recommended for 1-4 players.
    – PvP: Servers with PvP between players. When we die we will lose what we have in our inventory but not the equipment or tools. Recommended for 3-4 players.
    – PvP+: full loot from PvP Servers. When we die we will lose everything our character has. Recommended for 4 players.
    – PvP Duo: Similar to PvP servers but only allow 2 people per clan (group). Recommended for 1-2 players.

    The clans are for a maximum of 4 players, which function as a group and allow us to see the rest of the members on the map, share permissions in the base, not hurt each other, etc.

    We can build our castle almost anywhere on the map, although there are certain elevations scattered around the world that are more interesting when it comes to defending our castle.
    The construction is similar to other games: There is a core which we must feed to prevent our structures from “expiring” and breaking, and an area that we can expand as we improve our core. Within the construction area we can place walls, floors and structures.

    The character level depends on the weapons and armor we have equipped and the skills are unlocked by killing bosses scattered around the world. The skills that we will use in combat are defined by the type of weapon we carry, a jump/dodge, two active skills and a definitive one. From the skill book we can change our skills whenever we want, as long as we are not in combat.

    In a very summary way this is what you will find in the game, at the moment I am really liking it and I think that if you like this type of games you should try it.

    V Rising: An Immersive Journey into Darkness
    8
    • Pros
    • Immersive Atmosphere
    • Variety of Environments
    • Excellent Graphics and Soundtrack
    • Diverse Gameplay
    • Castle Construction
    • Cons
    • Steep Learning Curve
    • High Resource Requirements
    • Laborious Progression System

    Hey there, vampire enthusiasts who prefer pointy teeth over spooky vibes but won’t run away from a garlic bulb! Ever thought about Dracula from Hotel Transylvania and Edward from Twilight teaming up for a cool party right in the heart of the night? Well, forget about romantic bats and theatrical floating capes because V Rising is here to redefine our perception of virtual vampires. So, strap on your capes, adjust your nighttime sunglasses, and follow me into this bloody adventure where vampires step out of the shadows and reclaim their spot at the top of the food chain.

    V Rising is much more than just a survival hack-and-slash. Picture yourself as a vampire waking up from a centuries-long nap, leaving behind snores worthy of a nocturnal symphony. But here, the mission is clear: vengeance against humans and the reconstruction of your kingdom demand much more than a simple cup of warm blood.

    V Rising transcends the boundaries of a mere survival game to immerse you in a captivating world of darkness and blood. From the get-go, the gothic and enchanting atmosphere takes you on a journey through diverse environments, from lush green forests to underground crypts, picturesque villages, and ancient ruins. Exploration itself becomes an adventure where every nook hides secrets and dangers.

    Hunting is a crucial aspect of the gameplay, forcing you to track humans and supernatural creatures to quench your thirst for blood and acquire new skills. But beware, sometimes you’ll get your butt kicked by certain bosses, and without skill upgrades, you might feel a bit stuck in the game. The combat, dynamic and demanding, requires mastering vampiric spells and movement abilities to triumph over your enemies. The construction of your castle emerges as a crucial element in your progression, providing refuge against sunlight and a base for your conquests. Setting up production rooms to craft weapons and armor, chests for your treasures, and traps to fend off adversaries becomes an indispensable strategy.

    V Rising delivers a high-quality audiovisual experience. Detailed and vibrant graphics, an immersive and enchanting soundtrack contribute to creating a captivating gothic and vampiric atmosphere.

    However, behind its dark charm, V Rising isn’t without a few drawbacks. Some players might find a steep learning curve, especially in the early hours, which can be discouraging. Additionally, certain aspects of the progression system may feel a bit cumbersome, requiring a considerable time investment to unlock significant upgrades. Another downside is that various constructions, while crucial, sometimes demand a resource quantity that may seem excessively high, adding a layer of frustration to the gaming experience. Despite these challenges, the overall experience offers a captivating vampiric adventure for those willing to fully invest themselves.

    In conclusion, V Rising offers total immersion in the vampire universe, albeit with a few imperfections. So, if you believe you have the makings of a Vlad the Impaler or the legendary Dracula, ready to reign over the night, don’t hesitate to don your cape, sharpen your virtual fangs, and dive fearlessly into this nocturnal gaming experience.

    Good vampire survival game
    7
    • Pros
    • Great world to explore
    • Vampires with a twist
    • Build your castle
    • Day and night matters
    • You can play with others
    • Cons
    • Tech problems
    • Can be hard to learn for newcomers
    • Struggling to find resources
    • Combat feels clunky
    • Same old, Same old

    V Rising is a visually enchanting game, offering a unique twist on vampire lore. The expansive open world is a sight to behold, from mystical forests to sun-scorched deserts. It breathes new life into survival games with strategic castle-building and defense against other players.

    However, technical glitches like bugs and crashes disrupt the immersive experience. Navigating the game’s learning curve is a challenge due to the lack of a comprehensive tutorial. Resource scarcity introduces a grind, affecting the pacing of the game.

    On the upside, the day-night cycle and multiplayer interactions add depth. Vampires shine at night, and alliances, battles, and trades keep the social aspect engaging.

    Combat, the game’s core, falters with clunky mechanics. The risk of monotony emerges without diversified quests. In essence, V Rising has potential but needs refinement. Addressing technical issues, improving onboarding, and adding variety could transform it into a standout title.

    Overall nothing really harm about the game i invite you to try it because it’s pretty good game !

    • Pros
    • Different mechanics from most standards Survival games
    • Satisfying combat
    • Easy to understand building
    • PvE/PvP
    • Great art
    • Cons
    • Slow updates

    I was pleasantly surprised when I first played V Rising. It took some aspects of an aRPGs and threw them into a survival game. The combat is basic, but rewarding and satisfying in a way. The gear grind is pretty standard for a survival game.

    Where the game shines for me is its mechanics. Blood you drink and how potent that blood is determines different aspects and stats for your characters. It’s definitely unique. And unlike most games, where night is usually a time to sit in your base and do things close to home, V Rising encourages you to play out your true vampire dreams and use the night to your advantage.

    I never played on an open server, only a private one I hosted for a friend, but it was a lot of fun with a friend.

    I hope we get some more updates soon, I’ve been looking for a reason to dive back into V Rising.

    Unleash your inner vampire : V Rising
    10

    It’s been a while since I’ve played V Rising, to be honest the last time I’ve played it was when they released Gloomrot, but still it is too good of a game not to say something.

    First off, the visuals are awesome. The dark, Gothic landscapes, terrifying creatures and the eerie night sky – it’s like stepping into a vampire’s dream. The art style is perfect at least to me as I love this low-poly kind of style, every corner of the world was made with great attention even to the smallest details.

    Regarding the gameplay, it is a really smooth experience and you’ll get used to the controls in no time. There are too many great aspects to choose from, so I’ll try to keep it brief: awesome vampiric powers – check, cool vampiric castle – check, undead horse that you can summon – check, undead servants – check, epic boss fights – check and most importantly bat form – check! Even though at the beginning it may feel a little overwhelming, V Rising actually keeps it simple, making it a game where you can unleash your inner vampire with ease.

    If all of this hasn’t interested you in the game, how about this: V Rising is a multiplayer game so you can team up with your friends in your own private game, or you can choose from a bunch of official servers. There are different types of servers that you can choose to suit your game style, servers such as PvP and PvE, they also come with a bunch of different settings.

    To keep it one hundred percent real, there is one thing that bothers me, which is offline raiding. If you like to play PvP like me, you know how frustrating this can be, logging in to your favorite game after a long day only to realize all of your stuff is gone and your base is destroyed, to me there is nothing worse. But the good thing about this is that you can find servers that have set a specific time for raiding so you know when to expect it, and even if you aren’t able to log that day each player gets a chest that can store some stuff and it can not be raided, also another good thing is that you can fix your whole castle in a couple of seconds for free.

    All in all it is a great game that I would recommend to everyone at least once, so what are you waiting for, embrace the night, stay out of the sun and happy hunting!

    Really enjoy the game, despite its flaws. Mob density in later areas feels more tuned for co-op and there aren’t many stealth mechanics to compensate when playing solo.

    A fun take on the survival genre and the mechanics are designed around making you feel like a vampire.

    V Rising I
    9

    This game has a great combination of discovery / base building / farming and boss fights.

    And in each respect it is fun to play.

    I like the graphics style and the overall quality of the map and design. The crafting is not exaggerated and the inventory space is still enough.

    The base building has great design.

    The boss fights, are fun for most of the time, but are quite difficult.

    I will say that the sun period can be frustrating sometimes. When you are exposed to the sunlight too long, you will take heavy damage and then die. This can be frustrating when you are in areas where there are almost no shadows.

    Also, the game cannot be paused even when in single player. Because the sun and therefore the shadows in the game shift slowly and constantly, it can happen that you are killed by the sun if you are going afk for a few minutes. An option to pause the game while playing solo should be added.

    The game is very difficult when you are entering a new region. The same is true for boss fights. However, there it is a good kind of difficulty. Every time I died, I either had not paid attention to the combos of the bosses or have not drunk my potions.

    There is a lot of different spells and weapons variety. However, I find that most of the time ranged weapons (especially crossbow) and skills with movement speed are better than everything else, which takes the variety away somewhat.

    Regarding Bugs, I have not found a lot. I would consider this game not to be early access. Fair amount of content to play.

    9/10. I recommend getting it even when not on sale.

    A game that won't let you down !
    9

    This game is fantastic. I am not a big fan of hard boss fights, but the combat is so responsive I feel like when I am killed it was because of my mistakes and not mechanic BS. The progression in the game is extremely addicting, constantly teasing you with the next tier of gear or ingredients and keeps you moving through the areas of the huge map.

    When it comes to moving around, the various forms are really great, and the scattered teleporters not allowing for transportation of certain items forces you to run where you need to go (you can always steal a horse if they are around, which is also fun).

    There is no real story in the game so far, I get the original focus of this game was PvP and everything else around it is dressing… But some more story would have been nice for us PvE players. This gave me big Legacy of Kain vibes, but not having the nice narration from the character when he reaches important locations was a bit of a letdown.

    I have very few complaints about this game, and they have to do with the castle building system. First, you need to build and upgrade a castle heart thing whenever you want to build a structure, but you are only allowed two hearts total. I can understand this limitation for PvP games, but in PvE I would have liked to be able to build a castle in each zone of the map. Not being able to take my upgraded castle heart to a new location means I need to spend a lot of resources upgrading a new one whenever I want to move.

    This game has me hooked. I am really looking forward to updates and hope the game is a success and devs can keep adding content like No Man’s Sky has been doing.

    Addictive take on the genre
    9
    • Pros
    • Well thought out crafting and building system
    • Adaptable settings to fine tune the game to the perfect challenge for you
    • Cons
    • A bit linear

    V Rising is a great take on the base building, crafting survival genre. The setting itself provides a great opportunity for interesting challenges and it’s just plain fun to build yourself up as the local Dracula.

    The crafting system is great and can be finely tuned with server settings to increase or decrease the challenge and time commitment. This is my biggest pro as it makes the whole experience more accessible to casual gamers like myself.

    I did find the combat experience a little linear, tracking almost exactly with recipe unlocks as certain items or skills were needed to beat them, although this may only be an early game issue.

    There were also a few objectively better build sites which maybe detract from the hard choices that you might otherwise need to make about resources. This I expect is only a problem solo as PVP would provide the tradeoff in multiplayer.

    I played this game solo so will not review the multiplayer aspects, although I understand this adds a whole new dimension to the experience but requires a more substantial time commitment.

    10
    • Pros
    • open world
    • multiplayer or solo
    • graphics
    • goods soundtrack
    • Cons
    • same equipment
    • too many crafting tables
    • a lot of raw content

    A good game with an interesting plot, but if in more detail, then let’s go!!!

    Imagine that you are playing games like Diablo. At the same time, the game does not directly give any specific goals. You need to survive in the open world as a vampire who wants to eat, who roasts in the sun, who is hated by everyone and who needs his own chic castle with a golden throne and gargoyles.

    The most basic goal, of course, is the last one: you start building a castle and realize that in order to build your golden throne, you lack the technology of that very throne. And in order to create it, you need to kill that asshole and take away his knowledge of the throne. And in order to kill him, you need to kill him. By the way, he will just pass by your hut and most likely will kick your ass, because in order to defeat him you need to kill wo-o-o-o-o-he is that asshole. And he’s already been beaten by other assholes he bumped into on the road. Who knows when he’ll spawn next?

    In fact, the game is not as linear in this regard as I describe it. You can beat absolutely any asshole with absolutely any equipment at any time. Purely theoretically, everything here is tied only to your skill. I will say even more: there are such assholes who deliberately have to skip past the list proposed by the game and beat more difficult opponents in order to open more powerful equipment and crush them with empty damage, if not skill and cunning. And that’s not the fact that it will help you. Yes, I’m talking about you, asshole Tristan!

    There is an interesting mechanic with the castle: in order for it to continue to exist in the selected world (server), you need to constantly feed it with blood balls, which are mainly mined from opponents. You can’t beat your opponents. A kind of tricky server self-cleaning mechanic: the player does not enter the world; his castle goes out and collapses. One thing pleases, while your character (seemingly) is not erased and you can rebuild everything you need during a long break.

    You can play both on the server and solo (using your computer as a server). You can build golden thrones with friends (one for all or each with a throne in different places), or you can still do it solo, albeit on a server. I will write more about this at the end of the review.

    The world is really open. As soon as they let you in, you can literally stomp and build castles even in the most difficult of locations. And this is the game in which this idea is not too bad, as it seems at first glance. This idea is especially sweet due to the fact that you can build several cozy bases at once if you wish. Nothing in this regard holds you back.

    There are no levels here and everything is tied to what equipment you wear, what blood you drink, what abilities you discover in yourself. Something in this regard is similar to Diablo III, if memory serves.

    Good EARLY ACCESS game
    8
    • Pros
    • Good combating system
    • Crafting is fun
    • Fun to play with friends
    • Cons
    • The exploration aspect and building is lacking

    If you’re considering playing this game because you enjoy Valheim and desire a similar experience, I suggest reconsidering your decision. Anyone claiming that this game is akin to Valheim but with Vampires is completely mistaken, it’s because of the following reasons:

    While it is a highly enjoyable game, its primary focus lies on combat, PvE, PvP, and extensive crafting. However, if you’re hoping to find something reminiscent of Valheim, you’ll likely be disappointed.

    V Rising lacks in the exploration aspect. Although the map is substantial, it isn’t procedurally generated, resulting in a diminished sense of exploration and discovery. Furthermore, the top-down view characteristic of an action role-playing game also limits the exploration experience.

    Base building exists, but it’s quite rudimentary. Don’t misunderstand me—building and expanding your castle in V Rising will consume a significant amount of your time. However, this is primarily done to increase its size, unlock new features, and perhaps decorate rooms. Unfortunately, the game offers very little creative freedom to craft your own unique architectural masterpieces. Your castle essentially consists of tiles, walls, wallpapers, and decorations. That’s about the extent of it. So, if you have a passion for constructing awe-inspiring structures, I recommend looking elsewhere, as this game won’t fulfill that desire.

    This game caters to those who seek a survival experience with robust combat, encompassing both PvE and PvP aspects (with the latter being particularly notable). Although it can be played solo, it tends to become monotonous rather quickly, making it best enjoyed with a group of friends. Additionally, it boasts a solid crafting system, and considering it’s an early access game, it is genuinely worth the $20 price tag.

    However, it’s crucial to understand what you’re purchasing. Don’t be misled by reviews proclaiming it as “Valheim with Vampires” because that description is far from accurate. Still a good game nonetheless.

    Fun for builders, including casuals
    7
    • Pros
    • Base Building
    • Bosses Fighting Bosses
    • Casual friends can easily join in
    • Cons
    • Mediocre Combat
    • You probably want friends to play with

    At first blush, V Rising feels like a mediocre Diablo clone. Combat is repetitive, and enemy variety is passable. But castle building adds an addictive element that keeps you coming back.

    Normally a Diablo clone says, “Go kill stuff, then kill some more stuff, and maybe grind for some rare drops.” V Rising usually doesn’t. Instead, your focus is on bosses who will unlock new powers or crafting stations. During the nighttime you’ll be out tracking the next boss to see if you’re strong enough to take them down, and during the daytime you’ll ideally be in your castle building new rooms or crafting upgrades. This pacing makes sure that the game never gets dull, even if it rarely feels great.

    But it does have great moments. There’s nothing quite like watching two bosses go at it while you pray that you can swoop in for the kill. There’s at least one place where this happens naturally, and there are a few spots on the map where you can lure bosses to each other.

    And if you have a friend (and the devs seem to expect you to), V Rising becomes so much more approachable. Have a casual friend who enjoys base building? Put them on castle duty, and when it’s time to hunt down a boss they can support with ranged attacks.

    Personally, I came for the castles, and I stayed for the castles. How many other games let us play with good gothic architecture?

    • Cons
    • Performance drops from time to time but it's 100% playable
    • You have to farm resources, although it is not crazy in my opinion

    Conclusion: Highly recommended for being an early access game currently in version 0.6. The game has a huge amount of content. One if not the best vampire themed games out there.

    My favorite survival game of 2022
    9

    For me, it captures the idea of an immortal vampire perfectly, from right after you awaken in the crypts, your nature is clear. You feast on mortals to savour the benefits of their blood, be it a worker to boost your gathering, a scholar to vastly empower your spellcasting, a brute to relish in the melee slaughter – you get the idea.

    But, perhaps a boss ruins your day, or maybe the pesky sunlight leaves your great undead ruler-to-be a tad charred, in which case, get back to your grand castle. (Some of you might choose to just live with wooden walls, i suppose, to each their own.)

    You could hunt for some good humans, scouring the streets for high end blood to bring back to your castle for your dark delights, be it imprisoning them in your own personal wineyard, or turning them into a vampire spawn/servant to roam your halls, guarding your castle or heading out on missions.

    Not to mention the combat, which is the greatest i have had the pleasure to immerse myself in. Hunting powerful V-bloods to progress through the different tech stages, and unlocking powerful new spells that will allow you to greatly mix up your playstyle.

    There is so much more that can be said about the game, so many fun things to do, Yet I think i have said all that needs to be said.

    If you are still reading this review, give it a try. It is a fresh take on the survival setting, and it has completely consumed my free time.

    I cant wait for updates, if this is only the early access, the launched product is going to be a sight to behold. If for some reason you do not feel it is worth the current cost, keep track of the game updates, the game is already a steal for the current cost.

    It has a lot of fun weapons and spells, but much of the time, when you’re solo, you have to use the same “best” weapons and spells over and over, since everything relies on you alone. In co-Op you can be more relaxed and do fun stuff. But dying in this game solo is suuuch a huge pain and inconvenience that I’ve basically stopped playing in end game.

    • Cons
    • Still in development (early access)
    • If you play for a long time, the server environment becomes unstable due to a memory leak,
    • Lack of character customization.
    • You have to manually fix server settings with a json file if you host a dedicated server

    • Pros
    • Being able to upgrade your buildings.
    • Nice to get away from the Zombies.
    • You are a Vampire, that can be a wolf.
    • Natural progression crafting.
    • Cons
    • A little confusing on the blood boosts to begin with.
    • Griefers online PvP.
    • DLC content. Not a fan of paid DLC, to be honest.

    Saw the game on Discord and thought I would take a look at it as i was looking for a change from the Zombie genre. Watched a few Youtube videos and took the plunge.

    Played on a PvE server and enjoyed the new mechanics and the crafting system. First issue was when I logged out and came back an hour later and the Server I was on, had gone into Unstable mode and is still offline as i write this review. Worst bit is I cannot remove it from the list, so if you server hop expect to have a big list to troll through. But it’s EA and it’s been highlighted on their Discord to be fixed.

    When you start it’s a little confusing as to where to start, but the Quest system is logical and it leads you in the right direction without feeling linear.
    As you get into the game its satisfying when you get new Vampire powers from the V Npc’s and drain their blood to give you new Buildings or powers, etc.
    The sun is a pain but it adds a slow down and feels natural and you need to pre plan where you are going during the day etc. A nice touch.

    Overall, it’s an interesting game and worth a look if you are a Survival crafting gamer and are looking for a new genre away from the norm.

    • Pros
    • Interesting take on the survival genre
    • Custom powers
    • Bosses drop good loot
    • A lot of points of interest
    • Cons
    • Building takes a lot of materials
    • You have to wait a long time for items to be done

    V Rising is a survival game where you are a vampire.

    The main difference between V Rising and other survival games is the way you feed your character and it flips your favorite time of day around.
    Your vampire does not require food or water to survive like other survival characters. Instead, you need to drink the blood of your enemies.
    There are different blood types and each gives special buffs to your vampire.
    Since you are a vampire, the sun will burn you so you wanna hide in the shade and only go out during the night.

    The map of V Rising is pretty large and filled with points of interest like bandit camps or cemeteries.
    Humans and animals wander around the roads and some humans are stronger than others. The boss type enemies called v blood carries all drop a special building/crafting recipe when killing them. They also provide you with special powers. There are a lot of powers, you can have up to two powers at a time, but you can mix and match.

    Building in this game is really expensive and making basic materials takes a little while to craft. However, the walls, floors and other buildings do look really cool so you can make a nice looking castle.

    V Rising is primarily a multiplayer game, with pvp and pve servers. You can also host private servers for just your friends, or if you want to play alone you can host a private server as well and not invite people. (The private servers only run while the host is online, so it will not keep crafting or converting when they are offline.)
