Graphically it's not exactly alot to look at, the bad guys tend to look like each other. On a positive note the characters hair moves when she does. Backgrounds are distinctive, tree's look like tree's and so forth.
Gameplay is simple, it's not button mash unless you like getting killed and blocked. There are times when you absolutely have to use tactics or well not live. There is a sort of auto keep you alive feature you get early on in the game. You need to use a special sword you get almost as early on in the game to reacharge this feature.
Story wise it's complicated yet still simple. You start out with your boyfriend who is pledging his undying love then the town is under attack. Most of the town dies and you really don't do anything with any more than three of the survivors. YOu find out you are death's daughter and the only one able to stop an uprising that will mean the end of the world.
You unlock special abilities as you level and train, interesting system if you cna actually get the game to work long enough. I got to Venice and got stuck trying to kill a bat. It notices you come in then does nothing but fly up high, no ranged attacks and immune to magic. Walkthroughs do not tell you anything on how to get the bat to do anything, no one has done that particular section apparently.
As it plays now, not really worth the bother, maybe after the company releases a patch and you got a few days to do nothing it's a rent.
This Game was very good, I'm glad I gave it a chance.
It basically has the same elements as a Fable game. you can decide to do good or bad deeds that effect your reputation and the combat is also very similar to fable.
I gave this game a 9 because there are no major flaws in it. and the story was very good.
magic and skills have to be set in 1 of 5 shortcuts before it can be used but there are so many magics and skills to choose from your gonna do a lot of pausing to set a new one.
some puzzles seem to have no hints around the area so prepare to look up the strategy or spend a little time on trial and error.
I didn't mind this next one so much but before each boss can be damaged there is a certain thing that need to be done in the fight before you can damage the boss, such as destroying the pillars in the room.
there is the occasional visual glitch but they do not interrupt the game play.
Great game and I'm glad I gave it a chance. unique story.
