I was surprised with this game Its not like anything Ive ever played! I love how they have learned to put in things from previous open world rpg's that we all love. Overall this game is great the graphics and realism might not be top notch like in Skyrim but the fighting style and the diverse yet vase open world is something Ive never seen before. Im impressed with EA and Big Huge games on this title nice work. Elder Scrolls might have some competition in the future!

Good But Not Great

The game is the love child of Fable and Darksiders and like offspring of talented parents it never lives up to the hype. It has a lot of side quests that will allow you to level but it's not as indepth as Skyrim and is more like Dragon Age 2. The RPG side of the game is not very indepth so you don't really get to mold your character so it's more like Nice Guy vs. Not Nice Guys answers. It's a good button smasher with some RPG mixed in and I don't see myself playing through more than once but overall I give it a 7 out of 10.

one of the best games for xbox iv ever played.
image WOW that has been simplified for Xbox and you got an idea of what is going on here.

what keeps it from getting a 10 is after i spent the last 4days non stop playing it (ya yo, and next week is finals week!) and beating the game, is now what? i want to keep playing but online with friends!

the developers need to find a way to turn this RPG into a MMO-RPG, then we will have the game of the year!

what set this one apart is the fighting style and leveling system. it really got me running around picking fights because the fighting was just that much fun in and of itself.
