Pros:
Story
Gameplay
"the combat is soo much fun."
Loot
Artistic World

Cons:
I played in "Hard" it was like normal difficulty...
They should make Super Hard mode.
The Gaints addon should be played, not included, its make the story more complete.

You should be able to JUMP, god that, is only my problem with this game... u can't jump theres only section where you have to and jump.

---------------------------------------------------------
If you want to play a game that is worth 60hrs + and be enjoyed throughout the pick/buy this up.
----------------------------------------------------------

Skyrim, boring combat /w good story choices dont really matter in the end but w/ fresh graphics.
Fallout, boring comat w/ great story and choices make a difference and decent graphics.

Witchr 2, boring combat w/ great-amazing story, choices have HUGE impact, good graphics, but with bad design to navigate the world( no fast travel and can't really run) no reference point to where you gotta go.

AMALUR, amazing combat, choices dont matter in the end. w/ good story w/ animation-like-decent graphics.

Good

Fable graphics meet somewhat Skyrim quality plots

The game is good, honestly, but like a few others have said, it could have been better. Especially when you take into consideration just how much potential the core of the story had.

The combat is pretty cool, smooth and pretty and destructive, but its still another press 1 button for 5 different move set kinda things. It works, it just could've been much more. Not to mention, there comes a time where your character just ends up feeling like an untouchable monster (well, my conqueror felt that way anyways).

The story is pretty good, and the side quests are also good, but there's just something about this game that doesn't quite suck you into its world. Its worth a rent, but I wouldn't buy it.

I have never written a review on gamefly, but this game compelled me to, it seems overlooked, and i wanted in some small way to have a chance to give it my thumbs up. I really love this game, it's a great adventure\RPG. The opening credits had me a bit worried, but the gameplay right from the start was great. It has a natural and smooth fighting mechanic, I'm always more of a brawler than a mage, you have tons of booty to be found, and I've recently discovered it's easy to compare what you have to what you're getting before you pick it up. there are weapon upgrades, quests up the wazoo, and crafting too. the story is interesting (so far). I'm not that far into it ~6hrs, but I can tell I will enjoy this one. I'm hoping that it has a sense of replayablity, I'm thinking of keeping this one...
