RPGVault reviews Bloodlines

Tags: Troika Games; Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines

Troika's Vampire: Bloodlines has been reviewed by RPG Vault, courtesy of Planet Vampire, which used to be Vampire Dilapidation. There's no numerical rating in the review, but as one might expect of someone who works for the game's major fansite, it's generally positive.
All things considered, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines is one of the finest RPGs I have played in years. It has an ever-present "Just 10 more minutes..." feeling that is the hallmark of a classic. Troika's mastery of the genre is simply undeniable. I cannot overstate just how intriguing the characters you meet are. If only real people were half as interesting, we wouldn't need games like this. Despite my lengthy rant about the number of flaws, 90% of them have already been fixed in an unofficial patch and it only stands to get better still once the official one arrives. I'd heartily recommend trying it unless you absolutely abhor the first-person perspective. And even if you do, to shun a title as potentially rewarding as this based on the way you view it would be doing yourself quite a disservice.
This statement is largely true, if a bit too forgiving. Bloodlines is a great game, but fan patches aren't an excuse for bugs.
