The game is still very playable, and I would recommend giving it a shot. Its nothing like Redemption since its more of a FPS/RPG game rather then a traditional RPG that Redemption tried to be.

The game has some of the best quests I have ever played, especially in the starting city. HIGHLY recommend playing the game.

BTW Redemption rocks! I love that game.

Are there any games you'd compare it to gameplay wise? One review said that some missions play out very similarly to Deus Ex, and the mood of the game looks a lot like Deus Ex as well.

It plays alot like Deus Ex and System Shock 2... maybe even Morrowind since it can be very nonlinear at times. But alot like DE and SS2...

I love this game as well. Was perfectly playable for me even though the framerate should've been in the 100's, 40fps and above is fine with me. It is a very unique game.

You guys might want to play with your SLI settings for this game too... Ive had some really strange problems with Source engine games lately regarding my sli settings. I fixed it by setting my SLI mode to "auto detect" and out right deleting the Half-Life 2 profile. The custom SLI setting it was using didnt work very well.

Wow I've still got this game on the shelf, havn't played it yet. Maybe I should try getting into it since I lost interest in my beloved Oblivion 90 hours into it.

Combat in Oblivion is head and shoulders above Vampire. Bloodlines however has much better story content and in my opinion, a wider array of character choices. Oh, and the dialogue is some of the best I've heard in any game. Highly recommended.

I gave it a shot, I couldn't stand it. Performance I could barely forgive since it was at least playable most of the time. Bugs I just couldn't forgive nor could I forgive the somewhat shallow gameplay design and combat.. Not to mention the sloppy design. At 80% on gamerankings, the game is overrated.

I played Vampire the entire way through 2 yrs ago without encountering any showstopping bugs. Come to think of it, I can't remember any bugs at all. This is directly out of the box without any fan patches applied.

Found it to be an amazing game. Great story, great lines, great voiceovers, great music. I'd imagine its selling for $15 or less in the bargain bin these days. If you haven't tried it but are thinking about it, its worth a shot. If you tried Sin Episodes for $18 when it came out, but finished it in 2 days or found it to be more of the same old same old then this is definitely worth the same $$. At the very least Vampire is original and unique. And if you dig it you will get 35-50 hours out of it.

Its one of my altime fav games. Even with all the bugs and the unfinished feel, its a AAA title. Has one of the best levels ever, I still cannot play Ocean House at alone at night. Also some of the coolest powers. Try playing as Gangrel and doing a stealth kill in your War Form...

A sequel would be great, but have the huge time passage like in Redemption. That way you could have the Oblivion style gameplay in the past, and a more Bloodlines/HL2/Sin style for the present.
