Worth a rent, but I wouldn't buy it. A decent RPG with a handful of classes to choose from. Each class has it's own abilities. For example I choose the Archon which allows me to change into a fire form and use mostly magic. The other classes are your typical fighter and ranged attackers. The game is fairly long unless you just choose to do the main storyline and no side missions. There are scores of weapons and other equipment for your characters, and changes to your equipment alter your appearance. The game has several downsides to it. It's not a game that catches your interest in past events. Although the story tries and explain things it doesn't draw you in. Also NPC interaction is very limited to the point there isn't any reason to even talk to any of them unless they offer a quest which only a few do. Also, your party is limited to yourself and a companion. A 3 or 4 party would have been better as it would have introduced more interaction and dialog. The monetary system makes no sense whatsoever. You'd figure that a weapon that costs 5,000 gold would be better than one that is 1,500 gold but that's not the case. There is no reasoning behind the value of equipment as cheap equipment can be better than rare and expensive ones. Also the merchants rip you off. If something is say 5,000 gold they only give you like 250. Buying from them is way over priced and selling is almost pointless. Despite all this, it's still a decent game to play.
THE GOOD Fairly long Lots of items
THE BAD Poor monetary system Lack of NPC interaction Two party member limit.

I am a big RPG guy and this game just didn't do it for me. It had a good concept, but it was lacking in a lot of places. It didn't give much options for how your armor looked and you couldn't zoom in which made the graphics boring. Its a short story and once your choices have been made there is no going back. It has some bugs that need to be handled in the quests, and as far as replay value I didn't want to touch it a second time. Its a nice game to kill time, but not a whole lot. 6 out of 10
