    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.

    Exploring and appreciating a visual novel with writing as good as this one shouldn’t be tiresome. With luck, future patches and updates will address these minor concerns because Coteries of New York is something well worth sinking one’s fangs into.

    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.

    Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is an entertaining visual novel with a good style but few real choices.

    World of Darkness marks its return to the videogame scene with a simple, yet intriguing visual novel. It's not the most memorable story about vampires, but despite being a low budget game, it definitely has its good vibes.

    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.

    There are some interesting characters and engaging side-quests but the main narrative is so railroaded and ends so abruptly that the gameThere are some interesting characters and engaging side-quests but the main narrative is so railroaded and ends so abruptly that the game cannot make it engaging or satisfying once the entire narrative is experienced once. I initially planned two or even three playthroughs but after seeing the end once I no longer have any wish to try it again. 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.

    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!
