If you like games like dragon age, mass effect, and any of the elder scrolls then you have to check this game out! I mean it isn't perfect but what game is? I put in a well over 100 hours into game play with at least 80 quest done, and still many more that I could have done but chose not to! do check this game if you enjoy a fast pace fighting role playing action game!

This is by no means the best RPG created. But it is very fun. The story can be lacking and was not what I expected from R.A. Salvatore. But its keeps you interested enough. You can tell this game was created with a lot of love. The scenery is gorgeous. The characters are well made, the animations are fluid. And the battle system is a BLAST! The funnest part of this game is no doubt the fighting, leveling up and becoming a godlike being. Everything here works very well. The alchemy, lockpicking, weapon crafting. Its all very similar to the Elder scrolls series. Everything else about the game is completely different though.
The characters and magic system remind me of Fable. The world and quest system are similar to WoW. The combat is lifted from God of War. Like Darksiders, this game takes a lot of tried and true elements from other games and combines them into a solid and immensely fun experience (a very long one too). Just dont go in expecting something groundbreaking and new.
I would give it an 8.5 but there are no fractions here.

A great game with lots of replayability. Not only can you tailor your avatar to take on the persona and style you prefer, at almost any point of the game, you can reset your skills and refashion them to meet different challenges. Start off as a thief and chage to be a wizard, or a brutal tank. or mix and match for combinations or the best of all three. On PS3 the controls are fluid and control is precise, making combat combos and action/animation as much fun to watch as to play. The quests and side tasks are numerous and interesting. the variety of weapons and armor keep you searching for the best combinations. ability to modify both with gem upgrades through sagecrafting definetly give you an advantage, even over the bosses. Definetly a game I can return to and play again and again just to try out the different styles/skills.
