From the people involved in two of the biggest games ever, and a first class writter of fantasy books you would expect a very good game. And this is what this game is - it looks so good, the stories are very deep, and it just keeps pulling you back for more. I'm really surprised that this game didn't get the hype that Skyrim, etc..., did as this is in that league.
Simply best post-Skyrim RPG around. Darksiders-like dynamic, beautiful combat system plus Dungeon Siege III's like world design in a WoW-like graphic - can't complain here, looks good. Overall everything is aimed at maximum epicness (wait until you see the spells!). Well worth money spent and will guarantee many hours of great fun!
