The story is much like a lot of the open rpgs, sorta dry and very little of it. The combat, leveling and pawn system is great! Climbing a ogre to stab him in the eye, or climbing a griffin before it takes flight to cut open a wing.... very much about weak points. No real crafting system, but lots of stuff to upgrade.
I felt more satisfied then I have after beating a game since the mile high club on vet. LOADS of custamization and quests although they are somewhat repeatative the fast travel blows till new game plus but the gameplay in all is solid the combat system used in this game is great
