I love video games, and for a large part, game like Skyrim and Dragon Age.. that being said, this game is almost a perfect mix of both of them.
It started a little clumsy perhaps, took some getting used to (never been threatened by a wolf before), but once you figure out the basic play of the game, it can be very fun and rewarding.
There's still plenty of leveling up and treasure looting, and customizing armor, weapons, spells, perks, visual style... you Pawn is basically another you that helps you and other players online to help gaining a certain kind of XP.
The monsters, while tough, are incredible, taking the Snake, then Goat off a chimera while jumping on it's back and slicing away at the Lions face.. spells being cast by your Pawn from a distance.. it's truly an amazing game.
While I could say there were a few things I missed, like Fast Travel, and (Waiting) to pass the time, it becomes more difficult to travel at night, and you must remember to carry a lantern and oil.. and it would've been an easier, faster game to complete if those were included.. but without them, you get a real sense of what it'd be like to be in the character's shoes.
All in all, this was one of the most fun adventures I've ever been on with my Playstation, and would suggest it to anyone that is interested. This game was AMAZING.
