Very good, but not really an RPG if that's what you are looking for
on January 25, 2011
I'm an avid player of RPGs, so I wasn't sure what to expect with this game. Took a chance; low price and decent reviews. I wasn't disappointed.
While not really an RPG, it is truly a puzzle game set in a fantasy environment, which I must say is absolutely gorgeous. The physics effects are incredible and would love to see them in more games of other styles I play.
Straight forward install. No issue with the DRM, despite it being SecureROM as one reviewer stated. Don't have a real problem with that, since even with that DRM, you bought it, it's yours. Works across XP and Vista platforms fine (on my rigs anyway!)
If you like side scroller adventure games with a seriously advanced "Pitfall" twist, this is your game.
The strategy is well thought out. You essentially have three classes of characters melded into one, which you can on the fly toggle between depending on the situation. Regardless of the situation, each can with varying effectiveness get you out of a situation, some better than others, but you are never "stuck" should one or both of the other classes die during the play - just have to use your wits to figure out the next move/advance with what you have left. Quite challenging at times.
Not a "five star" - few games are, but certainly a very good game!
