First of all this is the type of game you need WEEKS to play constantly maybe even months, as there are 200 levels. I started off enjoying this game and a good way to describe it is a better version of d..d..dragon age, yeah I said it, worst game on the Xbox360. The graphics of this game are really beautiful and the scenery is very enjoyable to walk through. I did put around 30 hours into the game, almost throwing it up the wall a couple of times too, but now I have decided to sell it for these reasons:
Saving - You manually need to save all the time, or if you die, you will restart from your last checkpoint. Which like me, was about half an hour of gameplay ago.
Repetitiveness - The world isn't actually that big, so you end up running out of the same city and through the same mountains over and over, against the same enemies. (Until your second playthrough but thats when I quit, ill get to that later) Also there is a way to fast travel using a special stone, but I only come across 2 over 30 hours of gameplay making it very boring and frustrating when they sent me over the other side of the map.
Confusing - Half of the time you don't have a marker where to go or what to do, you ask around but you don't have a clue, yes I know that rhymed. I had to resort to the wiki about 3 times for quests and one of them was so confusing I almost threw my game case and disc out of the window.
Difficulty - at the start of the game it isn't too hard as long as you stick to goblins and harpies. But then you come across trolls that can literally 2 hit any of your party and one boss took me 40 minutes to kill. Im on the second playthrough and you get slapped in 3 hits and I have spent almost all of my money or armor and weapons. I don't know if this game requires ALOT of grinding but thats unimaginable how long it would take. I waslevel 39, with two other level 39's in my party and also had my friends level 90 in my party. I could still not kill this particular miniboss I tried around 5 times. The attacks turn you to stone and your party and its instant death if you dont have a certain potion which they give you 1 of.. thanks alot.
Overall if you have PLENTY of time and patience then this game is for you. However, if your like me and just want to smash and kill things and hated dragon age, give this a pass.
