The Unofficial Patch is not really a mod, but while the default basic patch only fixes bugs, the optional plus patch restores a lot of hidden content, including new quests and new maps!

Exactly what AmericanCrime said:

"AN essential Bloodlines patch/mod. It fixes almost everything inherently wrong with the vanilla game and aims to enhance the experience as well by restoring content. Highly Recommended!!!!!"

This is the TRUE patch for any loyal fan of the game. There is absolutely no reason to not use this patch over any other patch, that claims to be, 'official'. All the mods for the game, use this patch as their foundation & regularly update to work alongside this masterpiece. There's 2 versions - a basic version of the patch & a plus version.

Basic is just bug fixes & optomization.

Plus restores original content from the game, changes item locations or characters & moves them around to ideal locations (this might confuse people who remember their original locations - & they're not there) but it makes more sense. Also, the difficulty has been made easier & the game is more flexible to play.

It's a perfect patch, that works with ANY version of the game. The patch comes with an easy installer & includes several years work of patching/changes - there's an extensive list. Basic can be installed & Plus can be installed on top, later, if you want it.

The patch can be uninstalled if you choose to play the original game non, bug-free but why would you do that? Lol. This patch is regularly updated, too, so expect new content being remade/restored & more fixes but right now, it's fixed pretty much everything.

Almost everyone who plays this game, uses this patch, as it includes 'Extras' - a HD mod that cranks up the graphics, a resolution patcher - to play Widescreen (a feature that was never made), amongst more. This isn't a mere patch, this is a dedicated group of fans hard work and a piece of art, in the eyes, of those who use it :) In all my life of PC Gaming I've never seen something quite like this, a patch, that's so much more... and breathes life into an amazing game! 10/10, 11 if I could :<)

Honestly, there isn't much that can be said that can give this impressive amount of hard work enough credit. The dedication put in by all of the people working on this patch is incredible, and I truly appreciate all that is done with every single update. Wesp5 and the VTMB unofficial patch crew, thank you. Honestly, the only reason I continue to play this game is to see just what you folks put in or restore next. I have never been disappointed. Keep up the good work!

To give more of an explanation to my ramblings... Being able to take a game that on most modern rigs would shutter itself to death and making it something not only playable, but enjoyable, is an amazing feat. It would be honestly fairly difficult to play this game with just the official patches on a standard machine. For anyone who is reading this who has yet to play Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines without patching to any of the unofficial patch versions needs to. The official patches were great, but ultimately were a generous effort made by the Troika as their company went under. They didn't have the time or the resources to give their game the last polish they wanted to. With this unofficial patch, this game is getting that polish, and then some.

In short, download this patch. It's necessary, and it does this game the proper justice it deserves.

A complete must-have; thanks to this unnoficial patch, you can have the whole game (almost) free from the most fatal bugs plus it also restores the cut content which never made to the vanilla game.

You want more replayability?. Try this out!.

This mod is insane.
Bloodlines is a epic game - but in most machines, it runs choppy, bugs out, have some unbalancing.... This mod... aim to fix that all.

Well, sorry about the grammar also.
But really - if you are like me, and downloaded again Vampire Bloodlines just to replay it - download that mod. You'll want it. Give it a try, and remember to rate later!

Shouldn't even be called the "unofficial" patch. It should be called "the only way to play this game" patch. Hell it really should be the official patch. The fact that this game was near unplayable, unintuitive, missing content, and mechanically weak at launch should completely disappear from everyone's mind. This patch simply makes the game what it always should have been. A unique gem, a masterpiece of the medium that will be loved for decades and decades. Thank you Troika and thank you wesp along with everyone that helped him out.

An absolute must have for the game. Do not play bloodlines without installing it. Plus content is also gives a nice addition without diverging from the game too much.

I never played the game before because I heard of the bugfest it was on release.
In a whim I decided to try it out now as I am quite intrigued with the gameplay and story. Running the game without a patch on a modern PC and OS (win 8.1) is quite impossible without applying a patch. And I must say Mr.Wesp has done a terrific job in making this patch. The game runs smoothly and the graphics look very good for a game this old and I haven't experienced any glitches until now.

This mod polishes a gem that Troika has created. Not only that, it also adds new levels and content that was cut due to time and budget restrictions. The amount of effort Wesp5 has put in deserves highest praise. Hats off to you :).
