I've seen some nasty reviews about this game especially from critics. If you are a fan of Champions of Norrath then you will have no problem playing this. Although i think this game lacks graphically in character models while fighting the worlds and game play make up for it. Please at least try this game.
Great Single Player, Excellent Co-op Hardcore Mode

First off, the game is fun. Although it is to easy on normal so i recommend putting it on hardcore from the start, especially if your playing coop. The game flows smoothly from dialogue and plot sequences to dropping you into the action. Side quests are not to far off from the main story quest which is a relief but also makes the game slightly more linear. The graphics are great, especially the spell animations. The major thing that hampers this game is the camera. Majority of the time it is fine, it's just sometimes you will want to enjoy the environment by rotating the camera down and around. Well, you cant, you can only rotate it around your character, not Horizontal or Veritical. For example, you hear a beast ahead of you but you cant lower your camera angle to look ahead of you to see him. I would not let this take away from renting the game. I played through it once on Single player on normal mode and loved it. Then i played couch co-op on Hardcore Mode with my bro and it was most fun we have had in ages. The story is little to be desired and you probably wont have any interest in the lore, but the co-op combat on hardcore is worth the price of admission.
