    I’d recommend it as I was completely caught up in the world it laid before me and was reminded of just how much I had loved Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines (and it did what I suspect it was really meant to do which is drum up a greater desire for the new game).

    I’m hoping that Coteries is the first modern step forward for an IP long overdue for mass recognition. Vampire: The Masquerade fans will enjoy this, and fans of vampire fiction in general might want to give it a whirl, as this is an easy introduction to an awesome universe.

    Of course, the sound accompaniment is not up to the other elements, but thanks to a collective of memorable characters, to original and functional mechanics for the genre, to an excellent bouquet of missions to follow and to a main story that loses hits only on the final, the boys of Draw Distance have sketched a remarkable work, with which it will be pleasant to get lost in the night of New York.

    Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York does an excellent job of introducing new gamers to the World of Darkness. Players who have waited fifteen years for a new Vampire: The Masquerade game will feel right at home.

    If the intention of Coteries of New York was to remind me how excited I am about Bloodlines 2, and how much I enjoy the lore of Vampire: The Masquerade, then we’ll call this a win. As a visual novel, it is a solid story, flawed only by visual repetition and some bare-bones production. It’s an intriguing tale, well told, but over too soon and not inviting to revisit.

    Coteries of New York is a return to the world of Vampire: The Masquerade that fans will enjoy. Those unfamiliar with the series might be left feeling underwhelmed, however.

    I went into this game really expecting to like it – and I did, for the most part. In the end, I couldn't get past the odd tone and the feeling that it was penned by someone who didn't actually respect the source material, but wanted to write a self-aware parody of it.

Once you know it vn-ish type of game and you are ok with it then it’s really fun. The game is dialogue based and depending you’re your clan you can use special dialogue choices (disciplines). You chose which quest to peruse and with whom to form coterie. It have some initial bugs, yes but nothing game breaking. I hope more characters and quests will be added. I know it’s not Bloodlines but that itself is not a reason to hate it. Expand

But similar things like telltale games your options don't really mean anything. Regardless if you do what they say or you don't. You are still rebuked in the exact same way. The game is too short and the price too high. I was looking forward to this, but it ended up being quite disappointing. Expand

It has no replay-ability as all choices lead to the same abrupt and unsatisfying conclusion suddenly at just over three hours feeling deliberate on the side of the developers to avoid Steam's refund policy.

    The only reason i put 3 on this other fantastic game is because a 2 hour game tops shouldn't cost 20 euros.

    In a nutshell, great awesome
    The only reason i put 3 on this other fantastic game is because a 2 hour game tops shouldn't cost 20 euros.

    In a nutshell, great awesome interesting story, great characters, game starts great, midgame is nowhere and the end comes abrupt. If you find it for 5 euros at some discount sale grab it,or if you are rich, Otherwise its 20 euros for 2 hours of game tops. Had the game not ended so abruptly and if it was 4-5 hours it would be a solid ten.

    This "game" is a badly written buggy mess it is not worth anyone's time or money.
