Bloodlines - Just Shy of Greatness

Review - posted by Jason on Wed 10 March 2010, 09:04:56

Tags: Troika Games; Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines

The latest edition of The Escapist turns its gaze to games that are "nearly great," including Troika's Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines.
Sadly, Bloodlines was the last game that Troika would ever make, as the company folded just a few months after its release. With more money, time and manpower, Bloodlines could have been a genuine masterpiece rather than the cult classic it eventually became. But even though it stumbled out of the starting gate, Bloodlines accomplished something great: More than five years on, there is still a dedicated community creating unofficial patches and restoring cut content, a feat that few games - even incredibly popular and well known ones - can boast. Great games may inspire awe, but Troika's swan song stirred a feeling in players that is just as powerful: devotion.
