Overall...gotta give this game a 9/10.

One of the best stories in a video game in a LONG time. Great twists and turns, and has some beautiful prose.

Downsides are the graphics (which look fine, don't get me wrong--just look dated. No jaggies or anything, however) and some of the fetch-quests.

I also loved how some missions simply involve white text on a black screen--no visuals whatsoever. Quite awesome.

The story is wholly enthralling. Absolutely loved it.

Combat was standard ARPG faire with some magic elements.

The music....was beautiful. Gorgeous.

I've read the music was of the best to come out last year. Destructoid also had an article about it that made the ending decision sound :noes:

Ending was very cool--there's 4 of them (on various subsequent playthroughs)

Music was beautiful.

I skipped over this game because only 2 of my clients actually picked it up and both said they didn't like it. I would give it a go after I'm done with Dead Rising 2, but now I want to try Two Worlds 2...

I would try this if I wasn't already in the middle of two awesome RPG's, Divinity 2 and Two Worlds 2... maybe after those.

Action RPG with square as melee and magic mapped to triggers. No lock on

Its well worth the $10-15 you can find it for
