GamingExcellence Drinks Up Bloodlines

There doesn't seem to be an end to number of reviews there are for Troika's most recent game, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. Adding one more notch to the list of reviews is GamingExcellence. They have reviewed and have seen fit to give it a decent overall score of 8.0.
The unfortunate downside to role-playing â€œSlick Rickâ€ the smooth-talking vampire was that I wasnâ€™t much of a fighter, I was a lover. One scenario offered me the chance to sneak past my enemies through a series of air ducts to get to my destination. The problem was that I kept getting stuck to ladders or hanging in mid-air stuck to grates. Eventually I ended up taking on the thugs with the old run-in-and-get-one-of-them-to-follow-you-out routines; not exactly role-playing at its finest. I also experienced some strange effects with the physics engine that resulted in objects or in this case, rats, floating in mid-air.
The downside to role-playing "Slick Rick" the smooth-talking vampire was that the game buggered me sideways towards the end of the game, forcing me to reload from an earlier save and redo my skill selection.
