    Ah redemption. This game got me into Vampire PnP ( and PnP altogheter ) back when it initially came out. Honestly after the first chapter or so I just cheated myself into a god to be able to follow the story. As a game is an awful and tiresome clickfest, but that Christoph guy was just an awesome character. The Tzimisce, specially in the PnP, are quite possible the best villain concept ever created.

    Not sure if its worth paying full retail price ( or even discount price ) since you would be better off buying a Vampire Novel or book.

    They did Bashing damage. Bashing. Come on. They did 0 damage to the last boss, and to everything else you could just 10 times easier run up and cut them in half with a longsword.

    I bought this game in a bargain bin for $10 or so. I felt ripped off. I just didn't like it at all. I can see how someone would love the game, just not myself.

    I equipped everyone with rocket launchers to push him back while I used that immolate fire rain spell on the last guy after a few tries I killed him without losing a party member. Every other boss I just had christoph run up and rip the shit of them with claws, potence, clarity and some other spell. He has a huge bloodpool, spent all my money getting him +blood rings but it was all useless for the last guy you can't melee him at all.
    Good game.

    Not true, Prison of Ice + Feral Claws = dead boss/anything.

    Ditto.

    Played it for a bit but found it extremely boring/repetetive.

    Just got Bloodlines a week ago, huge improvement overall (and really love the voice acting/writing) but the combat system sucks as well - why do modern 3D RPGs have to be real time?

    What is so bad about turn based combat? Would prefer that to these half-assed action game systems.

    Bullshit, I melee'd the last guy into tiny bits. All it took was a chainsaw and potence 5.

    Feral claws, thats what I used, and I had all the potency and all that shit on full and I couldn't melee him he had some sort of one hit kill that randomly triggered. I can't remember anyway I killed him with rocket launchers and fire.

    Celerity, that's a word you don't see often.
