Bloodlines trashed by some morons at ComputerGames

Computer Games has posted a rather negative 5-page long review of Bloodlines. Although I was disappointed with Bloodlines myself, the review is filled with assumptions, inaccuracies, and bullshit.
Some of you might wonder what is Bloodlines worth playing for. The dialogues for one, which are some of the best in the genre, especially when you play as a Malkavian, which have some interesting lines. For the music and voice acting, which are top-notch from start to finish and for some quests that break the typical â€œgo to point A and return with object Bâ€ formula (although you will also find these in Bloodlines as well). The characters are well fleshed out, some of them being quite memorable, and the haunted hotel level is just as scary (if not scarier) as Stonebridge Cradle (those of you whoâ€™ve played Thief: Deadly Shadows know what Iâ€™m talking about). But thatâ€™s all there is regarding strong points. The storyline is as dull as it can get: an ancient artifact is found, the signs foretelling the apocalypse (or Gehenna, as it is called in the vampire lore) start popping up everywhere and you are the only one who can save the world from impeding doom. How original is that?
How about actually finishing a game before writing a review? How original would that be?
