This game has a lot to offer, compeling story line, great characters, graphics and easy controls. It would be a nice rpg if you have never played a rpg before. However, for an experienced rpg player it doesn't quite measure up to skyrim. I get annoyed that I can't jump and explore the entire open world. It has a war in the north feel to it and plays out kinda hokey. I'm just a few hours in so I may change my mind as I upgrade and enhance my player. I just feel like skyrim is so beyond in comparison, but maybe I should change my expectations and just have fun. Definitly worth a rent especially because there isn't a whole lot on the market right now, and if you have never got into a rpg play this first and skyrim next.
Now, to be honest I really couldn't get into it at first. I bought Skyrim when it came out and now when I play this game I just want to go and get 100% complete off Skyrim. Dont get me wrong this game is very well done, great story, looks awesome, fast pace action, etc.. But its difficult to jumped between 3-5 different RPG's. So here's my take: Can't get into a decade series like Elder Scrolls or Fable cause you have to play from the begining, get this. Hard time to choose between Kingdoms or Two Worlds, get Kingdoms. Want to actually play the game and not spend most your time in the pause menu organizing, then this game is truly an original, and must try.
