This must be another case of the people who made the game gave it such top-notch reviews. This game should come with a warning label! I spent about ten hours wandering (slowly) around two towns completing quests like “Picking up Mushrooms,” and “Picking up a Puzzle Box.” Not that I didn’t get some good loot while I was there, but there were places nearby I couldn’t wander because I wasn’t able to defeat the foes that awaited me. Typically, I would never review a game without beating it every way from Sunday first, but I do have a life, and after all this I check my stats to realize that I have completed nine out of ten quests to become level 2?! Not even level 2 yet! I would have liked to have been able to level up sooner. This is what totally ruined it for me: When I got to a quest about going to a specific thief and asking them about a code book, they didn’t know about it. I joined the thieves guild (and I didn’t want to) and then they did know about it, but they still wouldn’t cough it up because I had to “Pick an alliance” in their words. This is impossible. How can so many people give this game great reviews, and say that it’s a true RPG (implying that you have a choice about how it ends, and what you get to do and not do) when the whole game is already plotted out, there is only one storyline—just several ways to get the same ends, and a COLOSSAL time waster. A finer point, the graphics stank, it was hard to see if the character was or was not hitting an enemy because the range perspective was dismal and they didn’t show hit points taken off per hit, the camera was jerky, and load time was extensive. I give this game a 1 out of 10!

This game coulda of been alot better then it was...i know it was made a few years ago but the first thing i noticed that i didn't like was that every person walks around like they have crapped in their pants and they refuse to change them. Second you are given a tiny bit of information in the beginning and your ment to get somewhere and there is no way to speed travel?...i'm glad i rented this instead of buying it like i was planning to. It's good for people who are unlike me and can ignore many bad things and tell themselves in their mind that it's a good thing...unfortunately i'm not one of those people sorry...
