Bloodlines excites the loins of ActionTrip

Action Trip has a review of Bloodlines. The score is 82, listing the high points as the writing and world. The downsides, in their opinion, are the AI, sound bugs, and meaningless NPCs that look alike. Here's a bit about the writing:
The fact that Troika had something to do with the original Fallout is so delightfully apparent in 'Vampire' that it has filled my heart and mind with enormous glee. Seriously, the writing in this game isâ€¦ well, you can go ahead now and list your own selection of superlatives. It's completely fucking awesome. It's spirited, it's thrilling, it's emotional at times and it's so delightfully sarcastic and drenched in crass and black humor that I will personally shoot, maim and torture every single ActionTrip reader that says they like this site, but don't like the writing in the game. Look people, whoever wrote the dialogue for Bloodlines is the fucking Baron. Think about how Smap and I write, and then add some actual talent and intelligence to that, and you have the script for Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines. The story in itself is layered and suspenseful, but it's really the little things that make it so great. 'Bloodlines' is packed with memorable lines that are sure to make you laugh.
Yup, if I had to pick out something that's pretty decent in the game, it would be the dialogue.
