While i regret having to say that this game has WAY too many flaws for something that could have been so much better i had a very hard time trying to get into the boring plot and even care enough to play this game for anything besides running around and randomly attacking people that in towns you cant kill sadly. only redeeming factor of this game was the large sized bosses which werent really that fun anyway but i did like the ability to hang onto what your fighting. over all i wish i have never rented this game from gamefly beings it took gamefly more time to recive / ship this then i spent playing it lol

I tried this game as a demo, I tried to like it since I'm a big fan of these 3rd person combat games and the whole pawn idea was intriguing and wanted to see more of the world for I had gotten stuck between two cities trying to find one 'spider' that I didn't kill. Thought it might be a hidden object, needing to play the actual game, so I rented it. Well I have to that wasn't the problem, the graphics are decent and the game play was repetitive so I found this game boring, I mean there's only so many goblins you can kill.
It's not fair for me to give a complete review this game since I only spent 4 hours with it. And I really liked it for much of those 4 hours. I liked the pawns, I liked the world, I like the character design, I liked the combat, the story was OK -- but here's why I sent it back early. No fast travel. You have to walk everywhere. And it's a linear, dull path to your destination.
I understand later in the game there's some limited fast travel, but I just decided it was not worth any more of my time to play because of how much walking I had to do (and I don't mind walking to a destination the first time, but after let -- let me get there speedily!). I'm disappointed because I wanted to keep playing, but I have too many titles to get through to suffer through the boring parts of this title.
