    Awesome start. Really liked playing this game. Its world is kinda boring but the combat and RPG system are really fun. Plus no auto-scaling for enemies = 1 Billion + .

    I’ve really wanted to try it out since I saw it at Captivate. However, I don’t have time to play the games I have already let alone one I’ve yet to pick up. *insert sob story here*

    If you prefer older RPGs to more modern ones, it’s definitely worth the time and money. It’s was less polished than Skyrim and has a less interesting world but the gameplay and RPG system is much more fun because it sticks to some of the classic and awesome RPG elements that modern RPGs like Skyrim badly lack.
