** There's also the fact that despite needing to sate your Bloodlust, you can use the instant-kill bite on any NPC. Including plot important ones. [[TrialAndErrorGameplay And there's absolutely no indication of who's plot important,]] making it all too easy to drain someone and screw your game without knowing until it's too late.

* StrangeSyntaxSpeaker: ''Many'' of the characters in the game have odd manners of speaking. One's a ThirdPersonPerson, one speaks in crossword clues, one supplies synonyms for every verb he says...



* TimedMission: You have only a few in-game days to find a cure to your vampirism or the implant will burn out, leaving you as a monster.



* VampireRefugee: Ransom's Stark choice is to find a cure or lose himself to the thirst.

* HistoricalDomainCharacter: Elvis Presley is an optional team member.GainaxEnding: The ending feels cobbled together from fragments of plot that were meant to be larger things.
* ObviousBeta: The sheer amount of dummied-out content indicates how unfinished this game was.


Added DiffLines:

* UnwinnableByDesign: Nimrod 7 has angered many of the gangs in the city through his choice of employers. Recruiting him means several characters will go hostile on sight, which makes the game impossible to finish as you must peacefully talk to them in order to gain access to key locations.

Long-term netrunners gradually lose the ability to take the virtual out of virtual reality. You are one such runner, implanted with an A.I. chip that helps you keep reality real. It also, rather fortuitously, helps resist other mental influences, such as being bitten by a vampire. But only for a while...

*CyberneticsEatYourSoul: Ransom Stark and streetgangs frequently argue about whether cybernetic implants destroy or enhance the user's humanity. A number of characters have had their brains fried by a combination of designer drugs and cybernetic implants -it is set in the futuristic New York ghettos and the modifications are typically illegal and unmoderated - but a cybernetic implant is helping to prevent the main character becoming a vampire and others are being used to cure a variety of mental illnesses. So, it's a combination of this trope and AIIsACrapshoot.

* PointAndClickMap: It has a map of New York with several markers on it, with more appearing as the game progresses; clicking on a marker brings up a list of all the locations in that area.

* SycophanticServant: Renfield. He really loves vampires, even when they dislike other vampires and just want a cure.
* TheCorruption: Ransom Stark has an instant-kill bite attack, but each use of it decreases his humanity a little and brings him closer to the NonstandardGameOver (in addition to the [[InUniverseGameClock normal decrease of his humanity with time]]).
* VampireRefugee: Ransom's Stark choice is to find a cure or lose himself to the thirst.
