    1. As an avid, rabid fan of Vampire: the Masquerade when I was in high school, I had more than a few misgivings about the "New" World of Darkness and how much of a money-grubbing gimmick re-releasing tweaked version of everything was going to turn out to be.So wrong. Serve my words up and I'll eat them with or without a fork.Basically, Vampire: the Requiem nailed personal horror while making these vampires stunning predators who are caught between mourning their humanity and reveling in damnation. [...]

    2. Okay this is mine.*scuff toes*.It was a present from H who is entertained by my adolescent fondness for Vampire: The Masquerade.What can I say about this? It's a White Wolf game so its systems are built around the assumption that your players are dickheads who want to derail, interfere with and generally disrespect your storytelling genioos. As such, when it's fun, it's fun in spite of itself. Combat is slightly more streamlined than Masquerade but you still get the feeling you are somehow Letti [...]

    3. *Finally* got through this book. It took me forever to finish it, as I found the style to be rather difficult and I found pieces of the book which were supposed to be interesting to be VERY boring. And I still don't really know what to think of it. Surely, this is a much poorer setting than Masquerade, but at the same time it's more deep in a way. I can't help to think it doesn't really know what it wants to do, however - it has pretty much set a scene in which every Kindred hates every other Ki [...]

    4. White Wolf's attempt to reboot their popular "Vampire" line of roleplaying games proved something of a blunder. While full of potentially-interesting ideas and reimaginings of older concepts, as well as several new takes on the vampire genre, they chose to strip away much of the mythology which had made the original "Vampire" line so fantastically popular. Players/readers are given vague, sparse descriptions of the underlying concepts and new mythos with little-to-no "flavor-text" to provide a s [...]

    5. Vampire has always been the flagship game for the World of Darkness. This is the new version, which replaced Vampire the Masquerade in 2004. There are endless debates on which is better. I seem to be one of the few who like both, but I will not be reviewing Masquerade here. Requiem is a role-playing game of Gothic horror. Welcome to the Danse Macabre. This game's strength is political intrigue with Vampires. There are 5 different clans, which is technically your species of vampire and there are [...]

    6. Excelente manual de juego basado en el Nuevo Mundo de Tinieblas. Esto no es una continuación o expansión de Vampiro: La Mascarada. Esto es una reinvención del juego. Diferentes clanes (con sus respectivas Lineas de Sangre) y una nueva diversidad de Alianzas que coexisten bajo la Mascarada agregan mucho más dinamismo al juego en comparación con su antecesor.El arte también ha mejorado muchísimo y es un libro muy bello.La única crítica que puedo hacerle es la falta de algunos de los clane [...]

    7. For those playing this system, an excellent resource book and reference tome. Reading cover to cover harder as a touch over-written. Like most adult vampire fiction in that, I suppose.

    8. Third best of the series. My personal list: 1st - Dark Ages, 2nd - Masquerade, 3rd - Requiem and then the rest.

    9. This is a really cool setting and system, and I'm looking forward to running it soon. I like a lot of the changes from Masquerade that have been made to make the world of the Kindred more mysterious. The mythology of the Cainites was pretty cool, but it also felt like it could be hard to use as a Storyteller. This game gives me a much greater ability to decide what the world is like, and what secrets are and aren't true. I could still have a sense of impending doom and a fear of the return of po [...]

    10. Take a decent setting with mood and tone done correctly (which would be 2nd and 3rd Editions of Vampire: The Masquerade), then throw it all away by trashing everything for some sort of pseudo-nihilism (Your vampire character only feels shadows of emotions? Seriously? An RPG where the characters are [i]feeling[/i] impaired?) and needlessly complicating the simple mechanics of the Storyteller System.But all of that could be forgiven on some level if the book were not also so poorly written. Just a [...]
