My mom downloaded this game on her XBOX 360 and loved it so I had to try it out, 9 hours of play later at her house, I had to get it. (My teenage boys kept saying "Mom, when are we going home?", I kept saying "Just one more mission!") It reminds me of Fable, which I played time and time again and never got bored of it, sadly my XBOX went to Gamer's Heaven last year and I have not gotten another one.
I have been playing this on my computer for several hours a week since I got it. After checking compatibility I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to play it on my Windows 8.1 computer as 8 was not listed. My graphics card was not quite high enough either but the game plays great regardless. I don't see any lag or jumping during play or cinematic scenes. It is a little harder to play on the computer if your not used to playing with a keyboard/mouse setup. I played it that way for two days, then I hooked up the handy dandy gaming controller and with that help of a program to assign the keys, my controller is setup like the XBOX, much easier for me to play since I have never been a fan of keyboard play.
The flow of the game is pretty good, there are some things that take a bit to catch on to but once you figure them out you'll be good to go. (Once I figured out the tricks and inner workings I started a new game :D) The other thing I like about this game; if you don't like where your character is headed, you can visit the Fateweaver and reset your stats and rebuild your character without starting a new game. I would also suggest looking through Walkthroughs for extra tips and tricks to help you along your way. You can get in over your head on some of the side tasks/quests if your level/s in certain areas are not high enough so be wary of that. Which is why I would also suggest staying in one area and doing all the side tasks/quests in that area to help you build up your experience points and level up before moving on to the next step of your main quest that takes you out of that area.
The only negative thing I can say is that some of the interaction with characters gets long winded which makes it tempting to skip through the conversation, but if you do that you might miss information you need to complete the task and the relevant information sometimes isn't anywhere in your items for you to look back at which leaves you trying to find the person again or just hoping you pick the right answer/order. Most of the time though your answer will be in a journal or scroll you picked up or listed in the description in your quest log. That being said, that is minor to me and not negative enough for me to lower the star level, just one of those things that I will do differently with a different character when I start over; which I will definitely do after I have reached the end.
