I've played through this game and I love it. It adds the perfect mix of realism, cartoon and fantasy. I love the random effects like legendary weapons. I find the storyline amazing, over throwing a corrupt king through a mix of characters. I especially like the combat. It uses a mix of melee and magic, but it doesn't rely to heavily on the supernatural combat, only the perfect blend of both attacks can win.
But everything has it's flaws. Without XBox Live, you can't complete the game 100% and it really irritates me. I do believe some of the quests and gameplay is very bland and short. You can easily complete a quest in 2 minutes. Overall, it is still one of my favorite games.
