At first after reading other reviews i had doubts about this game. Other reviews were saying its too hard to the point that it is not fun anymore. Dont get me wrong the game is a challenge but difficulty aside the game is wonderful. The story is rich and the gameplay is great. There is no choosing one class, you can train as many skill trees as you want!. If you are on the border of getting this game or not, get it is very much worth it, just remember SAVE OFTEN!

Okay, to start off I do like this game. It is hard, but not impossibly hard. The story is engaging, and most times you're having fun playing it. I would rate this as a 8 normally. That said, I can only give the Ego Draconis edition a 6 out of 10.
Why? Because the game is unfinished. The end screams for a sequel, or maybe some DLC to finish the story. Instead you need to get the "Dragon Knight Saga" edition to get the complete story. Maybe. Or it might just give you all the weapon and armor DLC packs that had previously been released while still leaving the story unfinished.
Either way I'd suggest steering clear of this one if you want a game with any sort of satisfying conclusion.

I bought this game for 4 dollars. And I couldn't be happier with the purchase. In a day and age where hand holding is the norm, this game breathed some fresh air my way. It's quirky. The controls are a little odd at times, and battles can be frustrating (not due to difficulty, but targeting).
The game isn't that hard. It has some moments, but honestly it's pretty balanced. Not only that, you can get every achievement on Easy mode (I'm doing normal difficulty because easy just doesn't appeal to me).
The graphics are obviously dated, as they are 3 years old, and weren't top of the line when the game released. But they are passable. The entertainment I've had while playing this game is more than worth 4 dollars. You can't even get a hamburger that lasts longer than 15 minutes for that price.
Some tips: Save often (new save, do not overwrite saves, it sometimes glitches). Open everything. Most books are fairly useless, except for skill books. Explore everything. Kill every bunny you see. And read minds.
Oh, and putting some points into Wisdom is extremely beneficial. Especially towards the 2nd half of the game. You will level up so quickly. It counts towards adventure experience and quest experience. So it adds up quickly. More than worth it.
If you haven't played it, and need something to pass the time. Try it, you may actually be surprised how much fun such a flawed (but charming) game can be.
