Too clunky Movement is hard to control. Find myself turning when I don't want to. And although I usually LOVE turn based games, here the combat is clunky and dull. Might be a great game but don't have the time and patience to get past the controls.
Pretty yet dog crappy gameplay and a lot of wandering around aimlessly. Virtually 0 explanation of wtf is going on and the tutorial is pretty slim. The only way to play is with the arrows. Otherwise the movement is a nightmare. I'm out of the cellar and clueless on what to do. Besides wandering aimlessly. I really really want to love this game. Especially after a rough breakup with heros of steel. But I think I may need to look elsewhere.
Old school for all the wrong reasons. Obscure puzzles with clumsy unintuitive solutions and failure resulting in instant death and another 30s load time. Just way too slow and poorly designed. Looks nice though.
Quite good Of course you can't choose your characters- they are all mages :-) but otherwise not so bad. More traditional adventure than RPG. I'm stuck with a bug though - Caredbar is all black; the graphics is not showing and everything is black. Too bad.
Was originally a 5* rating but since it is limited I am forced to bring it down to 4*...it's a great game ,unique,fun and you actually have to think. But the limitation and force buy to continue made me degrade it
Horrible directing. Enemies dont respawn so you cant level up at all or get money to buy what you need. Every enemy kills you instantly other than the first mission monsters. And if you make the wrong choice/choices, you have to start the whole game over. This had great potential but ended up being garbage.
Gameplay balance and bugfixies. For example:
* strength, magic, speed, charisma are now limited to 100
* Acceleration gives less speed points.
* Rush temporarily increases all magical bonuses.
* Balanced game economy in second half of the game
* Beholders set is now best armour in the game.
* Another two proof readings for english! One for common texts and one for RPG language.
* You can skip opponents replica in dialogue
* Storm and Incineration are now more powerful.
