I hate this game...
« on: February 04, 2021, 03:09:51 pm »
...and yet I think I would still recommend it.


CAUTIOUSLY... recommend it.


I think my favorite moment was right before the finale, right where you check out "Anezka's diaries". Her theme plays again as you listen to her notes throughout the centuries and... it just turned my heart to mush.


Seriously though, the gameplay can be quite excruciating at times. I knew it wasn't gonna be Bloodlines but holy hell the first half of the game is just broken.

Anyways, just my little opinion after finishing the game.

It is a flawed game, but it is still a VtM game. It has a decent enough story and some memorable moments.


I always wanted to improve this game a little bit, fix the camera, controls, game balance, improve models, textures etc. It is certainly doable, but I couldn't figure out out to permanently change the camera view. I really hate it when a game wont allow you to see ahead and forces you to constantly look down.

Have you ever contacted Javokis, the author of the Age of Redemption mod? It looks to me as if he is for Redemption what I am for Bloodlines ;), so he might know more about that game.

I hadn't even considered contacting him. Maybe he might have an idea about how to do some of the things I am thinking of. Thank you.

From what I hear, the Age of Redemption Mod does fix a lot of issues.


Despite the frustrating experience, I would certainly play it again... modded of course... heavily modded !

I played this game ages ago and remember enjoying it.  Never got to finish it though, made it all the way to modern times.  I never got to know Christof's and Anezka's fates.

Well, thanks for the recommendation. I tried this game some years ago but never got to finish it. I've read about it on https://www.yesgamers.com/diablo-2/builds and thought it might not be bad. I was not bad, but not good enough to continue playing for a long time. I think that I will just return to the good old Diablo 2 or try the remake called Diablo: Resurrected. Some say that the remake is good enough, but the others say it's total bullshit. I don't know what to believe, so I need to try it myself to build up my own opinion.
