Do you like pain?

Do you like pain? Are you overjoyed to play a game that frustrates you to no end? Are you one of those extremely rare people that think beating Resident Evil 2 with just a knife is too easy? If so, this might just be the game for you.

Every encounter is nastily difficult. Then you reach the bosses, or maybe they're just mid-bosses. And when you do, you can count on dying many many many times. While death in the game isn't permanent, you lose all experience earned before you're death. At least, you do till you find your old corpse. Only to find that you can't reliably claim your lost experience because that boss that 3 shotted you (if you're lucky) is right next to it, so kiss all xp gained on the way to recover your lost xp goodbye too.

This is one of those rare games where I had to stop playing it early in. After 2 weeks of playing, I'd just barely gotten past the first dungeon. Yes, it's that punishingly difficult.

I give it a -1 this was the worst game I have ever played, never ever again. If dark souls 3 ever come out I will make sure to Skip it and rent a better game.

Doesn't really seem like they spent anytime at all on this. No objectives, no map, no real point at all. If you're a fan boy with nothing but time on your hands; go for it. If you're looking for a dragon-age style RPG, this is NOT it. What a disappointment.
