  1. One of the best games I've ever played. Can't get enough of it.
  2. An amazing fantasy game, with a good story that has tremendous replay value.
  3. As a multi-player game, though, it has the potential to be unique; a user-definable game more like traditional role-playing than anything any platform has ever seen.

    Playing "V:TM Redemption" was a real love it, hate it experience.
  5. For a game that looks so good, it's a shame it can also be a pain in the neck.

    A slew of design issues and bugs rear their ugly heads, making this a game that doesn't live up to its full potential ... yet.

    Unfortunately, it also has crippling flaws that suck fun out of gameplay like a starving Nosferatu gnawing on a rat.

    obviously not reaching its full potentiial but that does not matter. this is still is one of the most enjoyable and rich rpg i ever playedobviously not reaching its full potentiial but that does not matter. this is still is one of the most enjoyable and rich rpg i ever played (along with infinity engine rpgs and fallout 1&2). i recently replayed it after 10 years and its story, emotion and solid lore amazed me even more (i was 12 when i first played it so couldn't get the best out of it). definately worth revisiting in 2013. christof is definitely my favorite pratogonist in computer games. i mean you are a crusader in 12th century, a man of GOD, warrior for the kingdom of HEAVEN and turn into a VAMPIRE. and your story goes on and on from 12th century Prague to New York of 1999. how cool is that:) Expand

    This game is simply amazing.

    Environment and mood are fantastic, coherent, and make you feel everything real. Its the typical gothic/dark style of Vampire pen and paper by World of Darkness, and very good to catch that mood.
    Dialogs are great, npc are well characterized, voices are excellent, perfect for the character they belong. The story is good, even if is somehow a bit short and simple, but it is so masterfully written that feels so good. Consider that the game is "short", about 30 hours, which is less than the typical rpg of that time, so the story is "short" as well if i compare it to Planescape Porment for example.. But those 30 hours are magnificent.
    I didnt like the modern times much but that's a personal preference.
    The main character is not black and white but has a lot of internal struggle for his damnation and his past life, and its well developed.
    Of course you have graphics from 2000, which at the time were magnificent, but now it aged poorly especially because polygonal models are evidently old, and even faces espression. But this doesnt matter in an rpg of course, and doesnt detract from the great experience.
    And lastly, music: just amazing, one of the best soundtracks ever made.
    Play this game if u havent, even in 2017 or later

    The game has incredibly huge replayability gameplay, you can create nice scenerarios with the StoryTeller system because it allows you to place NPCs, Props and Item in any way you like.

    In my opinion one of the best RPGs ever. Yes, it gets quite monotounous often but which typical hack & slay doesn't? And unlike Dungeon In my opinion one of the best RPGs ever. Yes, it gets quite monotounous often but which typical hack & slay doesn't? And unlike Dungeon Siege or Diablo Vampire comes with a stirring storyline that's being told in billions of lines of beautiful dialogues. It's a pity that it had been forgotten so fast. As for me: I'll definetely replay the main storyline at least one more time (I've already done so twice). Expand

    Caméra mal foutue, déplacements uniquement à la souris en cliquant par terre (sérieusement ?) difficulté mal gérée et non réglable de toute façon : première quête, premiers monstres : on se fait repasser en deux temps, trois mouvements, pour ainsi dire... mais t'es sérieux, là ? le sale jeu de merde, putain !

    Tout en anglais de toute manière, la carte est très mal faite, on ne sait pas où on est (c'est l'épreuve d'orientation de Con-Lanta ?) et bien entendu globalement très moche, même pour un jeu de 2000... Pas de temps à perdre sur une vieille daubasse.
