+Cel-shaded art style is easy on the eyes
+Voice acting for the main characters is pretty decent
+It's not Ride to Hell: Retribution
-Too bad they had to deal with a terrible script
-Plot is plodding, stupid, and above all else, boring
-No interesting characters
-Stealth mechanics are archaic, dull, and broken
-Skills like to reset themselves, so you constantly have to re-distribute points
-The lamest stealth kills in video game history
-NPCs all sound awful, just awful
-Skills can be used to completely abuse and break the game, making stealth irrelevant
-The sonar ability creates a visual effect that will make your eyes bleed
-Pointless Challenge mode
-Awful controls
-"Bane. Eric Bane."
-Eric likes to walk off to the left for no reason, which obviously isn't good for stealth
-Enemies are sometimes blind as bats and other times have super sight

Verdict:

F*** it

I looked at the Metacritic for this game right before you posted this topic.

Yeesh. Guess all of those Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines were pretty much baseless.

Too bad. I was hoping for a sleeper hit. After the glut of stealth games we've received recently though (The Last of Us, Dishonored, Mark of the Ninja, Hitman Absolution, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, etc.) I can't even justify picking this up on the cheap.

How far you now? I thought the tutorial was okay, but my the second mission I hated it with a searing passion.

I still wanna play it. I mean, there hasn't been another RPG where you play as a vampire since Bloodlines... has there?
Why do people... betray one another? They might as well... all just die instead.
Welcome to my kingdom!
