Based on the Japanese anime, Vampire Hunter D puts you in the shoes of the silent but strong hero D. The year is 12090 AD and vampires have reigned over humans for the last 10,000 years. Yet humans are finally beginning to overcome their oppressors and vampires are on the verge of extinction.
Half human, half vampire hunters known as Dunpeals are in high demand to exterminate the remaining vampires. Dunpeals are often well paid, since vampires kidnapping humans is commonplace now. D, the most masterful of the Dunpeals, is hired for 2.5 million dollars to rescue Charlotte Elbourne from her undead kidnappers.
Vampire Hunter D features polygonal characters set within pre-rendered backgrounds that mimic the world seen in the anime. Dark and gothic medieval themes are combined with sci-fi elements such as futuristic weapons and vehicles, creating a world which vampires have all but destroyed. The majority of the game takes place within a mansion where vampires and their followers reside. In addition to using D's huge sword, players will attack monsters using darts, grenades, flash bombs, and D's demonic hand, which can heal as well as inflict damage. ~ J.C. Barnes, All Game Guide
