Manhattan. New York, New York. 2094
It all started when I met her in her daddy's penthouse apartment. She was going to pay me for a freelance job and, by the way she looked at me, I knew I was in for something extra. But it was more than I bargained for. Much more. First, there was a kiss and then… two fangs punctured the veins on my neck.
High technology meets blackest evil in this cyberpunk vampire adventure. You play the role of Ransom Stark, an ex-corporate hacker and mercenary who's been transformed into a vampire - and wants revenge. To rid yourself of this curse, you must brave the streets of 21st-century Manhattan, where gangs, mercenaries, and cyberpunks rule. More, you must plumb the secrets of the bizarre virtual reality of Cyberspace as you combat both the vampires and the TransTechnicals megacorporation, the company that owns the cybernet. How long can you last before you give in to the thirst for blood?

If you go to any game database and look for "Laura Kampoo" and "John Antinori" you will find first a medieval RPG called "Challenge of the Five Realms" (made mostly by the same team in Bloodnet) but then some games with things in common: Hell, Bureau13, Ripper and Bloodnet are all very unique cyberpunk games with supernatural/horror touches that are more or less marred with touchesread more of awkardness in the design. This one has vampires and neuromancers in the same place, has excellent writing and a great atmosphere, but you will have a *very* hard time trying to find out what to do and how. Extremely interesting, but play it with a walkthrough.

Here's my honest thoughts on why you should avoid the game like the plague. And I'm going to do it right, and give you some very tangible reasons.
Let's see...The controls are a disasterous confusing mess that seem to be set up in a way to require you to have the manual(For example, you press the O key to accept.) Bonus points for making some options in the menu do jack squat!
Theread more dialogue is BEYOND clunky, and it goes on and on and on, making it a title with some of the worst conversations I've had with conversations in any game. Oh, and I honestly cannot understand how anyone could ever like the main character.
Oh, and there's a lot of moments in this game where you'll see these screenshots, and not only do the characters not even REMOTELY look like their sprites, but they tend to look almost entirely alike, which is uber creepy when you see females.
There are many games on this website that have aged extremely well. This one however was a gigantic mess to begin with. Unless you want to just get disgusted by how bad this game is, I cannot recommend against it enough.

I'll start just by saying that it is my favourite adventure (although it is much more) game.
Bloodnet mixes elements of adventure and rpg. Among solving puzzles you command your small squad of friends and mercenaries in fights. There's a lot of character statistics influencing combat, decking (travelling through cyberspace), crafting etc... Bloodnet tells a story of Ransom Stark,read more who is trying to lift a curse of vampirism. It is dark, mature and really sucks in. Ransom will meet a lot of interesting and well written characters. While combat sequences are not of best quality, great atmosphere makes up for it. Important element of Bloodnet is decking. Improving cyberdeck will help to experience it. It is not a point and click game (you won't make a helicopter combining shoelaces and washing machine). Puzzles are interesting and logical. It is more of unraveling the story.
If you like cyberpunk it is a must have. If you like vampires it is a must have.
