could be better, having to restart entire scenes was so annoying it has no checkpoints and the dialogue and some characters are just eh, the graphics are kinda bad too lmo,,,,,,the story is alright but i feel like it couldve been more! :o i still got curious and invested in the drama to find out how itd end but i honestly got extremely disappointed in the end, i didnt like any of the characters honestly except for some that i got interested in i couldnt get myself to care for many of them lmo

It's interesting development of interactive movies genre. Upgrading skills and disciplines and using all it to get through the story is cool, but when the game through a dice in dialogs to deside who will win it's almost unbearable temptation to accept bad result, when you easily can load game and try again. So, maybe it's not the best mechanic.
If you familliar with "World of Darkness" it will be quite pleasant journey. There are lots of lore knowledges and familiar moments here for the fans. But if you new to this universe, maybe you should first try Bloodlines and Redemption (if you don't afraid outdated graphics ofcourse)

If you've never played Vampire The Masquerade (the role game, you know, with real-life dice, and guides…) this game can be a good introduction to you. I'm looking forward to the next story!

What the fuck.

I knew it would get a bit wonky after playing the Council but somehow they found a way to make some things of this game worse? or maybe I misremember it?

So I start the game and the prologue is long. Fine. It's a story driven game, okay.
I mess up with the first part of the Emem chapter and decide to restart the chater.
No can do.
I have to restart from the very fucking beginning. and.I.can't.skip.it.
Because you can't reload any save - just a scene. And it doesn't tell you exactly what that means. <3

So I bite the bullet and play it again. This time it's fine. I'm having fun.

I start the malkavian part of the game, still in the first chapter. And thanks to a bug, I can't move to the next section.

I restart the scene thinking it will only restart the malkavian chapter - annoying but fine.

~+It restarts the entire.fucking.game.

Again.~
+

~+ So I cry, quit and deinstall <3 ~+

Like - what I saw of the game was fun enough but come the fuck on...! I get wanting the player to commit to their choices without save scumming or whatever but this is bullshit! D:

Maybe I'll try it again sometime but I doubt it.

It was fine but It could have been soooo much better. Especially, since it is taking place in the world of Vampire the Masquerade.

If this was anything but a Vampire the Masquerade game it would take heavier hits in the review score. However it’s not too common to get a game set in this universe and it even be of this quality. A compelling and intriguing story of three unique characters navigating their way through the world of darkness. Many good scenes with plenty of choice and consequences mildly let down by the myriad of bugs you’re likely to experience. Overall an enjoyable experience if you’re able to dodge the bugs 🐜
