This game was ridiculously hard. It's definitely one of those games you need to not have a life at all in order to fully grasp. Spent 2-3 hours only performing about 30 minutes of actual gameplay. Died a ludicrous amount of times. ONLY PLACE THIS GAME IF YOU HAVE 3-4 HOURS DAILY TO COMMIT.
this game has everything it needs to be great. from the architecture of the level to the weapon and spell hierarchy. i found myself getting absorbed again and again by it. the problem is that they try to hard to keep it so frustrating and difficult to play. i put in 70 hours of game play and after losing the chance to get my higher level spells for my priest i just stopped playing 3/4 of the way through. looking back i should have never given this a chance. it is praised for being so hard but how ? not puting in save points so when you die you have to still go through the same monotonous thing over and over again? thats not hard that overly frustrating. im not sure why they chose to go down this route after making the kings fields series since this could be fantastic.
