First things first don't go into this game expecting the most open world like Skyrim. If you've done that good your on the right track. The first hour or so of the game is slow and it's mainly to build the story, but after that you get much more freedom and secondary quests start to rain down endlessly from the sky. I first played this game when i was about 14-15 and in't really like it too much, but thought i would give it a chance again now at the age of 18, boy was i glad i did. The game has so much to do, without boring you. The terrain is different from area to area, enemies are varied and very challenging, and the tactics system is amazing for keeping your party well oiled. The lore is so deep in the game, and there is a large expansion called Awakening that adds about 20+ hours to gameplay, i highly recommend buying this game and all of the DLC you won't be disappointed. One thing some people may not like however is the combat so i suggest looking up some gameplay to see if you are alright with the combat.
I love the game play, the DLC are good,and I think the way that you play as a group of 3 or 4 toons,is awesome. and if the toon you are playing as die, you go to the next one, it is like having 4 live, it is a long game like fallout 3 or fable 3 all good long game for 1000 of hours of game play. thank you game fly I am going to buy the game to keep it soon
