  1.  Only buy if you ENJOY repetition and failure

    The game is very much old school. If you like that sort of thing (which I do sometimes) then it is a very good, atmospheric game. However if you like games that reward experience with increased power and ability this is possibly not for you. The game is very much 'on rails' in that you will meet the exact (and I mean exact) same opponents every time you die and re-go through the levels. I imagined from the reviews that this would be expansive, creative and immersive gaming. It is definitely not expansive - there is a path and you have to walk it. You may carry any amount of weight but woe betide you put anything on as you will slow to a crawl. You cannot sell anything you find - it has no value and levelling results in practically no benefit. After 5 to 6 days of play I was still getting killed by 2 skeletons with very little discernible difference from when I started.

    That is probably the one thing in the game that forced me to stop in the middle of play and sell this game - if I am going to work (HARD in this case) - I want to see results, a gradual improvement or at least moving the plot along. Instead I felt I was working harder than at my job and literally getting nowhere (this being for fun apparently). That and the giant 'boss' monsters that are sometimes easy (first few) and then impossible (moth fairy thingy). I would liken it to the banyan tree in jet set willy - ages to get there and then not even enough time to see the problem before 'splat' dead. This game made me angrier than anything I have ever done - some may like this - but for the sake of your blood pressure be aware of this before playing.
