Put the time in and it is fun

This game isn't going to win any graphics awards, and at the beginning it seems like the combat is just a bunch of mashing that relies on mostly luck. However, once you learn to parry, you quickly realize that the combat is designed to be strategic, and entered into with the knowledge that if you don't pay attention, even the weakest opponents can get the better of you. It takes a while to build exp (glory) and gold to train your skills, but it is worth the effort once you start to round out your style. I was initially like many of the reviewers here who wrote it off as a bad game after a couple hours of play, but I stuck with it and I am glad I did.
