I just had a really weird experience at my local game store. I walked in, browsed the shelves for a moment and saw this.

Due to the inordinate amount of time I spend on this website, I feel like I have a pretty good grasp of exactly what games are coming out, but I'd literally never heard of this game until I spotted it on that shelf. So what the hell is it and is it any good? The back of box quotes compared it to Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines and it looked like there were Mass Effect style dialogue wheels and a focus on stealth.

Has anyone on here played it?

I have not played it myself, but those I know who have say it's allright but nothing special. The skills seems a bit unbalanced, the graphics a little average and it feels like the sneaking parts of deus ex, whatever they mean by that =)

I played about the first hour, couldn't make it passed the first proper mission. Boring, clunky stealth rubbish.

Comparing it to Bloodlines is far and beyond the most interesting thing I've heard about this. Too bad it doesn't seem to live up to it.

Oh well.

I think the only thing that compares is "Hey, vampires" and that's about it.
At least from what people are saying about the game.

Since you brought it up... I seen this game listed on IGN's upcoming releases a few weeks ago. GB isn't the best or even that good at keeping up with news (unless its major) combined with the site's huge reduction in activity since the new site went up... I'm not surprised a GB junkie missed something.

I've seen gameplay vids and yeah it does look dated and not all that 'awesome', it could still be a decent game. Watch the vids and decide.

It ain't looking to good, seems more half-ass then anything. Most of their ideas has been done before in other vampire games, and done better.
