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.

I had rented this game 3 months ago and this game was epicness incarnate. I am literally speechless right now there is so much stuff Ive done. This game is basically Dark Souls but 3.5 times better. If your like me and play one game all day every day until you have nothing left to do, then there is roughly 2 whole months of game play... I'm getting lazy sooo bye :D
