The video game Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines will be released on November 16, 2004 by Troika Games.
Some comments from reviews of the new role playing game (RPG):
There's something uniquely satisfying about being evil. Evil gets to play with the best toys, listen to the best music, wear the best clothes and generally be sinister, introspective and cool. In game terms, being evil also means that you get to do all the things that make the good guys wince, like bursting people with blood-magic or biting them in the face. Vampire - The Masquerade: Bloodlines is the latest excuse to be deliciously evil.Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines Hands-On [ign.com]
Bloodlines definitely isn't an all-ages affair, and nothing makes that clear more than an early scene where you have to fight to the death with a serial killer wielding a severed arm. It's not Manhunt, but it does have its darker moments.
...in a more gruesome touch blood and viscera has a tendency to splatter and stain the environment.
It's difficult to suppress a smile when you're slinking through alleys, vaulting over high walls and slitting the throats of your vampire and supernatural foes, or going in gun's blazing with your Uzi and katana combo! This is certainly not a game for either kids, or the faint hearted; but for anyone who thinks having a taste for claret and no pulse sounds cool, this is the game for you.
Vampire: Bloodlines - price $49.99 [Amazon.com]
