Bloodlines mixed cocktail at Eurogamer

Probably the best one on the 'net so far, Eurogamer has done up their review of Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines, where the game earns a 7/10 rating. It basically says the first part of the game is great, but the last part degrades down in to a combat fest. Here's a clip:

Its decline is a slow one - things are going awry by the point of the Hollywood sewers - and you find yourself playing on, desperation growing as you hope it rallies. Sadly, by the final sections of the game, you find yourself fighting respawning katana-wielding mobs, boss-fights with enormous energy bars and simple Tomb Raider-style puzzles. If you spent the majority of your experience on making a talking character, for example, you'd be disappointed to find the last six or so hours lacking a chance to slut your way to victory. No significant multi-routing remains either.


Yup, those sewers definitely suck.

Thanks, keeks!
