Very Good

Really fun combat and customization

Graphics - 8/10, its a very visually stimulating game, the environment is very pretty in a cartoonish style I really like it, nothing mind blowing though.

Music - 8/10 Good tracks, adds to the ambiance

Game play - Game plays great, alot of fun to be had alot of combos to try out and different specs, the game makes it easy for you to get loot without making it too easy and unrewarding, I've found rare swords in chests located behind buildings in towns that are super nice which was a welcomed sight at the time!

You can craft everything you need in this game without having to put alot of time into skilling up, you can sneak, pick pocket, attack people in towns and more all of which is welcomed in my eyes.

Boss fights are super fun and make you dodge alot!

If your looking for a fun action RPG with alot of content you've found the game for you!

Story - 7/10, nothing amazing, expected more from R.A. Salvatore but the gameplay makes up for it.

One of The best RPG I've played evere

I watched this game played for 30 minutes before i got it and I was sold that this game was excellent. I was not wrong. The world is open and free to explore without being so open that you get confused about what you are suppose to do. The story, while sometimes confusing and wierd, is overall saved by the epic theme of fate versus control of destiny. The whole RPG system is based off this them and it is supurb. You get to control the fate you want and based on that fate you can build your character around it. It has its stereotypical Mage, Warrior, and Rouge classes but you are not limited to that at all. You want a warrior who also launches magic from his hands at any given moment for devastating power, you can do that. Want a jack of all trades, thats possible. Want a rouge who brandishes a giant hammer as well, consider it done. You get to choose the role your character has and it can be preety much whatever you like. And if you want to turn your battlemage (Warrior/Mage) into a shawdow spellcaster (Rouge/Mage) that is no problem as well. Just find the local fateweaver and pay a small fee (by the end of the game thee fee is trivial) and you can reset the character. The fighting in the game is somewhat button-smashing but as you level up you unlock new moves based on your skill point allotment. This unlocks amazing looking combos and moves and makes the game more lively. Also a extremely nice perk is that you ar allowed to fast travel anytime you want to locations uou have been before, saving hours of backtracking to quest giversThere are a few negitives though. However finding armorsmiths, fateweavers, merechants, and other mercantile NPCs can be hard sometimes. Money though is rarely an issue and by the end of the game I had accumilated over a million of money that was never used. Also its a shame your character does not have a voice actor. Overall though the game is open world and a blast to play. I recommend it to anyone who wants it.

This game is AMAZING. It reminds me of the good old Playstation 2 games! This game has great story,action, and just about everything.I would buy this,since it has a long main quest, and many many side quests.
