If the combat were handled a little better, then Bloodlines would be a real RPG benchmark. As it stands, the battles will prove a bit frustrating to both RPG and action gamers.86Gamers’ Temple
one of the best rpg games my favorite vampire game and one of the my favorite rpg game and if my english is bad sorry for my english100MuhammedYavuz67
It more than makes up for the mediocrity of the first Vampire PC game, and will satisfy even the most diehard bloodsucker.85eToychest
Best Vampire RPG ever made. Best WoD interpretation. Best tabletop RPG game adaptation period100Variag01
Perhaps one of the deepest and most satisfying games I’ve played to date. Unfortunately, it is also perhaps the most bug infested final release I’ve played to date; not a good combination.85VGPub
To put it bluntly, the game is also riddled with bugs.84Gaming Nexus
Unfortunately, the AI has the intelligence of a doorknob sometimes, which keeps the shine off an otherwise delightful and multilayered experience.84IGN
It’s easily the best single player PC RPG this year with one of the most engaging atmospheres you will find in any game.84CPUGamer
An above average bit of RPG goodness, with some added mechanics, and all of it’s served up in a very eye-catching package.84Armchair Empire

Some people will surely love this game, but I feel that it’ll be a much better time for adventure and RPG types than action fans. [Jan 2005, p.139]75Game Informer
A buggy, uneven mess of a videogame, elevated by its writing in the first half but quickly plummeting in overall quality in the second.50Tomle1202
although the game has great writing, there’s not enough quests and the game is really buggy70pooops
One the best vampire’s game but there are plenty bugs,glitches and others problems with it. Still it’s one of the most exciting game that ever had made.0Karai
Even with patches bugged AF, don’t recommend if you sensitive to such, save can be corrupted or dialogue glitch, but overall game is good for it’s time60Sego
