Between the puzzles and the combat, the game isn't bad but overall I wouldn't say this game is great, good, but not great. I wouldn't buy this game, renting it was good enough. You can't gaurd, but you can dodge, which most of the time isn't that helpful. You can only carry 5 health/magic potions each which is ok but they are very scarce and you will be using those health potions A LOT.......trust me.
Thanks to THQ's auto-save and overwriting your saved game and a butt load of game breaking bugs I restarted this game from the beginning 3 times and after the last bug I just gave up. I haven't yet mentioned the minor irritation of the game freezing and the only fix is too turn off the XBox and reload.
First off, not even taking into account gameplay, this game is absolutely amazing to look at. Everything feels BIG and EPIC, and all the artwork goes into supporting that feeling. It's also got great combat (and weapons) and some of the best dungeons you're going to find anywhere. You don't just plow your way mindlessly through boring layouts. Instead you have to figure things out and use abilities to progress and find collectibles. And, oh yeah, the dungeons look fantastic, as does everything else. There's enough of an rpg element to make character advancement interesting but not terribly complicated. Tons of different moves you can do, if you want, but you don't really have to. Great game!
