I am not overall impressed.
Atmosphere is lacking the ambiental sounds need a lot of work like animations both on the character and on the npc the movement feel artificial but that is to be expected as is a first person only game.
I quite liked watching it. Still not sure on the flip-over-and-hit-them silliness. Looks not great. And that outfit! Yi! Is it a Bloodlines tradition that the clothes/armour is meh? Other than the Malkavian in BL1, because STYLE.
In general, this looks like what I hoped for from Bloodlines 2 - what made BL1 great, again.
Now picking a clan, sigh. CHOICES. Tremere are cool, but, you know, the Pyramid, the whole caste system, ugh. Brujah are powerful, but thugs. Venture really need to be on fire. Malkavians are interesting but also annoying to play. Torries are potent, but so..Torrie.
Maybe see some gameplay previews first, see how cool Dominate and Dementation are. Might be worth it.
Don't see much to complain about when keeping in mind what the game is a sequel to.
Someone might say the characters look much less lively than the previously with Source engine and the night club song is an embarrassing far cry from what you heard in the first game (I've actually heard these being said), but nah... That's genuine, honest and unapologetic nitpicking to the core.
Damn the first one is such a gem but sadly it was released on a wrong date.The game looks like bloodlines 1 just with improved graphics so i think they try to wanna catch up the feeling from the original....what is a great idea the only worries i have is it’s sadly a new studio(troika miss ya)and i hope they put not that much of their own political views in it and let players decide which view they wanna prefer because some people are worried about one of the main writers
Protean was the one that gives the claws and then eventually the warform wasn't it? Animalisim let you throw bugs and wolves and stuff but I don;t think they ever had bat or mist powers. The thinblood powers do look cool though, I'm def taking the bats.
Also, I finally got around to watching the video and the return of the ridiculous dance makes me so happy.
You're thinking of BL the CRPG. I'm talking about Protean from the PnP. They didn't implement turn to bat or Mist Form in BL1 because too problematic. Was hoping for better this game...and sort of got it? Just as thin blood.
Animalism lets you summon animals and talk to them, yeah.
