This game is sad as I doubt highly that it was ever play tested..
It seems they didn't know whether to make it into a RPG or an action game.. It is nether... Some say say it is strategic, but the strategy I have seen so far is run around the enemy while you regenerate or just die trying to do anything else... Seriously the people who made this game must love the game over screen because I have seen it enough times to want to quit playing altogether... They don't give you any resources like a normal strategy game, so i really don't have any Idea what they are talking about... Strategy is supposed to be based on info, but the only info it really gives you is that, "Hey, get swamped by monsters!" , "Hey, watch out for that bruiser, so just run around him in circles while you magic gauge renews, then run around him some more..." Should they have made, " Spanish Flea" the boss theme? Then the next area I get to I get hammered by unending spiders and get wiped out before I can do anything, and again there is the game over screen... The game's difficulty was set to normal and it is too high? Did the people who made this game ever play test it? No, I don't think they ever did...
The Idea of swamping players with mass hordes of monsters just to show the player the game over screen is already boring me...
The game TWO WOLDS was better than this game... I don't know what else to do but to send it back and say I don't think gamers need to be subjected to this lousy untested game... If you are going to make a strategy game then give us a strategy game, but if you want to make an RPG then make an RPG, but as it stands this game qualifies as a BAD GAME!!!
Try before you buy! You have been warned...

This game is strategic it has pretty good combat an decent graphics also it can be really hard at times I have died constantly but is some what fun to keep retrying and come up with a different attack plan and also your companion you choose to help you does not help and will die most of the time you battle the same enemies over and over no real variety I read that the level cap is 25 and im level 20 at the moment 5 levels away an yet I die just as fast if I was level 1 there are three combat styles you can use a swords, hammers, or axes they are all slow and have no dodge move another style is ranger where you use daggers this is the style I chose because they are fast and have dodge and last is pyromancer where you are basically a fire mage if you wanna give this game a try great and if not also great overall it can be pretty fun and really frustrating.
