According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Violence 

Parents might want to think twice before purchasing Vampire Night for the little ones. While visuals in the game aren't exactly R-rated scary, it is fairly realistic looking and this is a very violent game with a high body count and blood splatter and body parts flying all over the screen. Some easily scared children might find some of the more creepy monsters in the game a little disturbing as well.

Fans of light gun games should enjoy Vampire Night. There's no real innovation here, but it's a solid entry into the genre and the extra features should make the experience more worthwhile than most typical light gun games.

All gamers should be aware that the Guncon 2 light gun accessory needs to be plugged into RCA jacks on the television for it to function. For those with high-definition TV screens and complicated digital component cable hook-ups, the Guncon 2 accessory may not function or it could prove to be a rather large inconvenience to setup. The original PlayStation Guncon is also compatible with Vampire Night. The game is also playable with the standard Dual Shock controller, but unless you think using a PC mouse is a thrilling experience, don't bother with this option and stick to the Guncon.

In the 1980s, Chi grew up in small town on the outskirts of New York City called Jackson Heights. Latino actor, John Leguizamo referred to the town as the "melting pot of the world," and while living there, Chi was exposed to many diverse cultures, as well as a bevy of arcade classics such as Pac-Man, Space Ace, Space Harrier and Double Dragon. Chi's love of videogames only seemed to grow as his parents finally caved and bought him an 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (after being the only kid in the block without one). In the 1990s, Chi finagled his way into the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts.

Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.

Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
