Going Giovanni on this thread.

I just finished playing this game. Looking past the hilarious animation, dated graphics, laughable AI, and lack of polish, I immensely enjoyed playing through it. I couldn't put it down.

My favourite part of this game was the narrative, especially in the latter end of the game when it was really building up. I also like the levelling system and provisions for very organic playstyles. And especially how you don't get XP for killing enemies - that's just gold.
The lore was interesting, too.

The haunted house level was probably the scariest level I've ever played in a non-horror video game. The abandoned sewers got to me too. *shudder*
The game is probably the first gothic-punk movie/video game I've seen. Interesting atmosphere; very close to cyberpunk.

All this said though, after playing through and seeing all the different endings, i feel sorely disappointed.
Show spoiler

Overall, a good experience. I will probably play through again. This playthrough was a Toreador with playstyle being diplomacy/stealth/melee.

Next time, I'll probably try being a Malkavian.

mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.
