Very Good

If it only weren't for a few problems...

...This game could've been incredible.

PROS
-FANTASTIC combat (better than some action games)
-Interesting story (it's a bit hard to explain, just go watch a video review by Gamespot or IGN if you want to know)
-Enthralling environments (forest, plains, desert, swamp, cities, they're all amazing)
-Epic loot (eventually it all looks the same, but still there's some really awesome weapons and armor that you'll collect)
-Choose how you want to play (warrior, rogue, mage, or even all three if you're like me and want to experience the whole game in one playthrough!)

MEH
-Weapons and armor degrade over time (this is really just an unnecessary annoyance in my opinion)

CONS
-Unfairness - mobs of enemies (later in the game they throw so many enemies at you that just becomes this infuriating mess of a game)
-Unoriginality (steals numerous gameplay elements from games like TES and Fable - ex. lockpicking is straight out of skyrim, it just looks a bit different)
-The story isn't very engaging (although it's interesting, you never really care enough about what's going on)

Overall
Pass?: NO
Rent?: Definitely
Buy?: Depends on if you enjoy the game enough to seal the deal. I personally think hundreds of hours of fun gameplay are worth it, but that's just my opinion

this is the offspring of fable and Skyrim. it wasn't original enough for me. maybe had they offered a online feature or something it would be worth playing. its not unique enough for me to even consider buying. it could have been great.
