Summary
I do like Vampire: The Masquerade - Rivals but the game really didn't wow me or knock my socks off. The component quality is pretty good although the rulebook could have used another pass by an editor. I dig the rival aspect of the game as well as the events of the city adding a randomness to the proceedings. I'm not a fan of a few things which seem to slow the pace of the game, especially the "influence conflict" which I think brings the game to a screeching halt. Still, I do recommend VtM Rivals and I think big fans of the IP will find it worth a purchase.
