So has anybody heard of this game? Came out earlier this year to mostly positive reviews. Heard it was made by an ex baseball player but that's pretty fucking stupid, who in their right mind would let a pro ball player run a business, let alone in the video game industry.
Anyway, game's a solid 6. Action combat is pretty fun while it lasts (you can get bored of it fairly quickly). Although it lets you respec into one of three different trees, and that will be needed to see you through to the end.
House of Ballads quest at the start is pretty well done, but the game severely lags in the middle and fizzles at the end. Lore is generic and cheesy but indulgently satisfying enough to the classic fantasy reader. Think RA Salvatore trying to write for a video game and you'll get the idea.
UI and interface are clunky and ugly, saving the "sell all junk" button. Not too many bugs which is nice, but holy fuck is the game easy as hell. Definitely needs a difficulty patch, stat.
Finally, the game has two solid xpacs which were well done and provided pretty good value for the money.
All in all a pretty good go at it for a new IP. Looking forward to what these guys do next. Wouldn't mind seeing this universe made into an MMO either.
+1 I see big things in this franchises future.
Game was fucking awful, the combat mechanics were sluggish slow and retarded the combat got very stale and boring quick, it felt like an MMO world, but single player... thank god i torrented this piece of shit
i have little hopes they could turn this into a functioning mmo, even though the world is set for it.
