... game on sale in hopes it would be a good time killer until some other games came out
on March 27, 2014
I got this game on sale in hopes it would be a good time killer until some other games came out.
Graphically, the game looks great. I like the aesthetics of the world they developed and it runs smooth on my mid-level PC. Plenty of options for different play styles, a story with a rich background if you want to lose yourself in the history of the world. Decent combat.
So why 2 stars? I got bored to tears. The side missions are all very similar - fetch this, hunt this down, kill this bad guy, etc. And if you don't want to do these missions, you just say "No thanks!" and continue on the main quest - no penalties, no loss of chance to do them (you can just go back and start the conversation again). You don't really LIVE in the world, you just are passing by, as if your actions don't have any impact. The main quest wasn't anything spectacular - just enough to move you from point A to point B.
Some people may love this game and I don't blame them; it just wasn't for me.
