I played it to the end and had half a mind to go through it again with another character. In many ways it plays like a simple, introductory entry into the world of looting hack and slash games like Torchlight and Titan's Quest. That was fine with me. It never presented much of a challenge, was straightforward, told a cliched story, but it still charmed me. In fact, I didn't mind the lack of difficulty any more than I mind the difficulty of other games in the genre. It's just different.
The sidequests are nothing grand and easily executed, which I appreciated. It meant I could make quick progress and get XP and money to level up and get stronger, which is th eaddictive quality of these games.
Graphics are strong, worlds vary, and the central hub is nice. I played it in 3D and really liked the effect, especially when the spider boss came crawling at me.
If you like these games and don't mind one that is simple, you're get plenty of pleasure out of this title.
Online worked fine, too. I mostly played by myself (how I prefer it), but my few times with other players worked fine.
