yes i admit at first it is quite boring. You are starting at first to take care of your daughter then you always runnning all over the place doing lil here and there..but then the real action takes place and im goin insane with the weapons and spells....spells r way different from normal ones you use in other RPG's..Weird thing is that it is set in future hundreds of years from now. storlie is awesome. there is a suprise towards end of game and i wont tell :) and it threw me totally off. And towards the end it does get emotional. You see bad things happen to your friends (companions) and you are like "What the heck man, this aint suppose to happen" Over all excellent, beginning slow and boring but does get better, TRUST ME. Game shows that friends are the world and when one puts life at risk you just got to keep on going otherwise they did it for nought
If your favorite thing about a game is the soundtrack, you know you're in trouble! Repetetive, mindless hack and slash, uninspired graphics. I got past the first section, finally; my daughter kidnapped, my hottie sidekick petrified, and my revenge plotted. I got a new sword and spear suddenly, the game looked like it was gonna open up, but do I care to keep going? Not really. The gameplay is THAT lame. So NEIR, yet so far.
