You start the game up and go into the character screen. There are the usual tabs to change character appearance, but when you click on them, nothing happens. Why? Because they weren't done. They quickly released a "patch", and the patch removed these options altogether!
Press "M" to show the map (automap or minimap). Nothing happens. Why? They removed it from the game (but not from the key mapping screen). And they had the gall to out and out lie to everyone and say they never were going to include a minimap because it was "more fun without one". But if they had planned to NOT have a minimap, then why can you map a key for the function?
These are two of the most glaring examples. But it doesn't stop here. The world is very sparsely populated, there are almost no side quests, promotion quests work regardless of whether you are actually eligible for the promotion, advancements and "heralds" seem to have no effect, and magic is very nearly useless.
The experience and advancement system is well thought out, and would be a very fun system to use for a character, but you'll never get far enough in the game to see any results.
The combat system was nearly impossible for me to use. You have to circle and click repeatedly, there's absolutely no strategy involved unless you're extremely adept with a mouse and keyboard.Read more ›
It's fairly easy to get in a situation where you complete a step of a quest but the game doesn't realize it. The game balance is WAY off - it's essentially impossible to have a magic user sort of character that can actually use magic as his primary attack mode. It's almost traditional in this style of game that you make the majority of your cash by selling weapons and armor you pilfer off dead bodies, but the game prevents you from having more than one of any weapon or armor - thus, all those swords you picked up off of the thousand or so goblins you just killed can never be traded in for something you need.
The game has a "random encounter" engine, which is fine, but it doesn't EVER stop. You may be in a big battle with an end of quest boss, and the game keeps spitting irrelevant little bands of goblins or spiders or something at you. It even does this inside of walled, fortified towns!! There is literally NO safe place to stand.Read more ›
Lots of buttons and keyboard commands that don't actually do anything. NO AUTOMAP FUNCTION EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A KEY. The one positive review mentions a "poster size map"- try a pithy glossy foldout roughly the size of an opened magzine. Does it help at all in the game? no- the map merely marks squigly borders to the interlocking corridors of wilderness.
Combat? horrible. click till your finger is sore or your voice is hoarse. If you like being mobbed by 12 rabid rats repeatedly every 2 minutes you will like it. Using the bow, you can't actually aim your shots- even though the options menu has a setting for crosshairs, they do not appear in the game.
I spent 40 dollars on this and tried really hard to enjoy it. It left me utterly disappointed. I want my 40 dollars back along with the 15 odd hours I wasted trying to enjoy this piece of rabbit droppings. Do yourself a favor and avoid this stinker even when it is in the $5 bin in 6 months.
