If the intention of Coteries of New York was to remind me how excited I am about Bloodlines 2, and how much I enjoy the lore of Vampire: The Masquerade, then we’ll call this a win. As a visual novel, it is a solid story, flawed only by visual repetition and some bare-bones production. It’s an intriguing tale, well told, but over too soon and not inviting to revisit.
I went into this game really expecting to like it – and I did, for the most part. In the end, I couldn't get past the odd tone and the feeling that it was penned by someone who didn't actually respect the source material, but wanted to write a self-aware parody of it. Writing obviously will make or break a visual novel, as text is all you have. It's an utter shame, because the visual novel setup was a major draw for me, as I suspect it will be for many others.
An overall mixed bag, Coteries Of New York is only for diehard World Of Darkness fans who enjoy visual novels. Due to the quickly impending finale, you can't do everything in one go, meaning there's obviously replay value here. However, it's entirely for seeing the side stories. The main story arc always has the same resolution, and sadly, your choices play little to no role in anything.
