    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.

    Excellent writing and vibrant characters help to overcome prominent technical issues and unwelcome repetition.

    Vampire: the Masquerade - Coteries of New York is a well-written interactive story in the World of Darkness that fans of the franchise will enjoy. While mostly a good read, it's let down by repetitive visuals, bugs, and relatively shallow choices. Players used to approaching Vampire as an RPG should temper their expectations.

    Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York left me feeling hungry. The game is certainly well-written, but its truncated story doesn’t quite do its complex, captivating world justice. If you’re a dedicated VTM devotee, Coteries of New York is a solid appetizer, but you’ll have to wait until next year for something to truly sink your fangs into.

    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

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.

    I brought this "game" believing it was a true Vampire the Masquerade game with at least some voice acting and some player choice and action.I brought this "game" believing it was a true Vampire the Masquerade game with at least some voice acting and some player choice and action. Its not. Its a bunch of text and no action but just some visual junk and long painted scenes with boring endless dialogue. The TRAILERS were more exciting than this "game" that is really just a damn motion comic!

    Can't refund it because I downloaded and I'm stuck with a sorry ass wannabe Vampire the Masquerade Book/Game!

    Does not have multiple endings. Doesn't even have an actual ending, just a crappy cliffhanger that goes as far as deleting your save afterDoes not have multiple endings. Doesn't even have an actual ending, just a crappy cliffhanger that goes as far as deleting your save after credits roll. So, no continuity with any of the choices made in this game on any future sequels. Not that the choices in game have any real affect on the linear plot. All you get is variance in flavor text and absolute adherence to the linear story line, regardless of choices made by the player.
    This is not a game, nor is it a visual novel.
    This is a book with graphics.
    Maybe one day, Vampire The Masquerade will get an actual RPG game made, like D&D's Baldur's Gate & Pathfinder's Kingmaker.
