SummaryExcellent story, excellent setting, excellent atmosphere, horrible game.
The GoodWho's ever heard of a cyberpunk/vampire/sci-fi/thriller? The melding of the genres just seems so perfect. The storyline is told well, and the graphics successfully capture the dark and futuristic atmosphere. Building weapons is fun too. I loved the flamethrower. The fighting is also fun, as it's sometimes satisfying to fire a couple sawed-off shotgun rounds at someone's head.
The BadHorrible gameplay. The one thing I always hated about adventure games was that you could do miss one item and be stuck for the rest of the game. In this game, you constantly need blood. Say you suck the blood of a major character. There goes the story. Your so-called skills play almost no part in the entire game, since everything is already scripted. The so-called Shadowrun-ish Net is a farce, since you don't really do anything but type the address you want to go to and listen to people talk.
