Default GOG - New Release BloodNet

January 10th, 2014, 11:59
GOG.com annouces that BloodNet a dark cyberpunk adventure game with RPG elements is now available on the game service.

BloodNet is a remarkable game that brilliantly blends horror and cyberpunk in a mixture of adventure and RPG gameplay. You will explore the gritty locations of a high-tech futuristic city full of cyber-enhanced freaks, and tread the dangerous paths of the Cyberspace, that houses more demons than it did ever before. Build a team of deckers, cyberpunks, mercenaries, and rage gangers to help you in your desperate fight for your last threads of humanity. With a dark, memorable story, a haunting setting, graphics that aged surprisingly well, and hours of exciting and original gameplay, this classic title is a cyberpunk delight you cannot say no to.

I tend to disagree.
Although the game sounds cool, the actual gameplay is beyond frustration:

The writing seems interesting at first, but VERY HARD to follow what is happening, due to the excessive amount of overwriting. Prime example of the "less is more"-rule.
A real shame, because the setting is very original (think Shadowrun meets Ravenloft meets Neuromancer meets Dracula meets… whatever…)

The gameplay is confusing. BlootNet is neither a good RPG nor a good adventure. The skill system seems intriguing, but never fully explained, the battles are chaotic (and generally, pretty much useless), and occasionally the game falls back to its adventure roots: you MUST talk to someone or do something to advance.
Problem is, there are lots of NPCs / usable items and areas. Sooo…. you WILL resort to the old routine of talk to everybody, use every item on everything, and EVENTUALLY something will happen.

Hmmm.
