The game is amazing, easy to understand, and an amazing setting. Since this is the only book you need to play, it's great not to have to look around for what the right edition is and whatever sourcebooks or storyteller companions, playerd handbooks, breedbooks and what not that you sometimes get stuck with in other games.
The system is smooth, expandable, and works in my experience well with other oWoD games, at least in the 20th anniversery editions. This books is really what got me into World of Darkness, and I intend to stay.
The only problem I've met is with the printing. The alternative available, as of October 18th 2013, for hardcover color premium falls apart, both this one and the Vampire the Masquerade 20th anniversery edition hardcover color premium are so big, and so poorly bound that pages fall out without any particular wear. I hope Drivethru will look into this, and hopefully do something about it. The old print, which on one side had to be printed in two books, are at least keeping together better than the new big ones.
