ok,this game really does rock. And i have only 1 major complaint. The map and quest seeker icon needs to be a little more refined. Between the map being shadowed and clouded over, plus a stationary quest icon that does not give pointer directions, makes for a very lost gamer who could literally wander for hours. And i did. Plus there is no real direction for some quests other than to "talk to somebody to get information." A little more help in that regard would be appreciated also. It seems to me that the creators took their time developing the story and fighting and character classes but neglected the fundamentals. Lets not forget that while the player is not from the world in which we are playing, the character is supposed to be. Therefore a little knowledge of the land would have made this game a 10.
I was really looking forward to this game but after a few hours of playing I was solely disappointed!!! I felt like I was playing resident evil just with a background change and character look change! It seriously feels like they just modeled this game after other they have made.... I returned it immediately and went back to Skyrim. Sorry Capcom, not interested...
This game is beautiful! The graphics are superb! I have been playing RPG's since the early Final Fantasy games, and this one is most certainly a breath of fresh air.
You play the Arisen. One who has fought THE dragon, and has 'arisen', from the brink of death to hunt the dragon down.
Within the first few minutes of actually creating your character, you fight the dragon. And this is not some little monster that looks like a dragon, but is close to your size. No. They went ALL OUT! This dragon is full size! You walk up next to it and you are the same size as its CLAW. Yes, you are an 'ankle-biter' to this dragon. And that is not the only fantastical creature in this game. And they have realistic proportions. Meaning you are quite often fighting things that you have to look UP to.
As I've said, the graphics on this game are crazy awesome. The controls are kind of tricky depending on what vocation(class) you choose. I've played as a strider(archer), and a mage, and there is a large list of special attacks you can choose from, for any vocation. From the simple fireball, to knocking your foe out of the park, to raining storms of arrows down on them. All done without any lag or framerate problems.
I will admit that some of the special attacks don't seem to hit as hard as they probably should, and yet others are almost overkill. But the game does have a way of balancing itself out. You can kill hordes of creatures only to walk into the wrong part of the forest and have a mage destroy you as if you are wet tissue paper.
The missions, from what I understand, come in two categories. Pre-planned, story/side missions. As well as unplanned, random, side missions. Which truly do seem random, like never before.
I could write a book on the things I enjoy about this game, but I only have 2000 characters. So I will have to leave you with this. If you are a real-time RPG fan looking for something fresh and enjoyable. Give this game a try. You'll probably keep it just
