You're a vampire, out for a feeding. Rather monotonous, unfortunately--you find people to kill, you kill them, and move on, and most of them don't put up much of a fight, nor is there much chance you'll get caught. The most interesting part of the game is the killing itself, actually: you learn something about each of your victims at the point of death, through some sort of telepathy, and what you learn is sometimes rather unnerving--but the game takes away points when you do that because you're putting yourself at risk or some such thing. Points or no, it's almost worth playing for those moments alone--the game, a la Anne Rice, hints at a somewhat more complicated story, but doesn't go anywhere with it.
