Yeah, it's a question, because I can't honestly say there's any stance on much about Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines in this review at GamersInfo. It's pretty short and doesn't seem to say much. However, I did find something in the body of the thing which does say something:
The game takes place in Los Angeles, where you start out as a newly embraced vampire. This is where my only major gripe comes in. The character generation is a little weak. Yes, all the major clans are here. For those of you unfamiliar with Vampire: The Masquerade, vampire clans are groups of vampire with similar characteristics to each other. For example, the Malkavians (my personal favorite) are vampires that have certain insights, whether itâ€™s clairvoyance or psychic like abilities, while at the same time, they are all incurably insane. Now, as I was saying, this is where my gripe is. You can chose your clan, which affects your starting stats, as well as the blood disciplines you have. But aside from some basic things, thatâ€™s it. You canâ€™t change your appearance, or alter you stats except what is done with your clan affiliation. I would have been happy if you could at least change your appearance, so you can look how you want to look. But, that is only a small problem in an otherwise very good game.
Kind of a pity that the Backgrounds were removed from the game, since those would have addressed part of that complaint there. Of course, when was the last time someone released a CRPG where you couldn't customize your look at all?
