After finally getting over the fact that after you put your serial code in and waiting for it to connect to the tinterweb for it to download a file to play i was away and playing (shame the Servers were offline or maxed out for 2days so could not even play it)
Well anyway finally after that all went smooth and i now found myself to be playing a very graphically impressive game,with a decent story and some great gameplay.
Anyone reading this will have experienced,fable,the witcher or at least dragon age etc so any fans of any of them should be very happy inthere element here.
for 24.99 you get a nice 2 discs game,a dvd and soundtrack,some cut outs of gerald and a map and instruction book and game book as well as a cursed coin (my wife can have that i think)
Only been playing for 5hours and am finding it to be extremely enjoyable,difficulty is spot on with me picking the next one up from easy and still thats taxing,as your going to have to parry as some of the enemy have towershields so its a matter of block,roll and heavy hit them from behind of the side etc.
On a negative side the keys cannot be re-difined so you have to use W,S,D,A to move,E-block-Space-roll-Q-use magic as well as a few others,i would have prefered arrow keys
and when you turn gerald around,he stays in focus for you but the entire scenary gets blurred so that can be disorientating and confusing.
All in all this is one game that needs to be in any RPG fans collection
1.Do as many side quests as you can and use youtube walkthrough if u get stuck as you need as much experience as you can as ure going to hit a brick wall if you dont have much health or vigor.
2.spend experience ( in my opinion ) on 200% dodge and vitality on the sword upgrade path,sign path your going to need to upgrade the Quen sign as this acts as a shield and electrifies the enemy and this sign is vital when you meet the Draug leader in the ghost world as it is WELL HARD on normal level.
pick up anything and everything to sell and use.
meditate and make postions and bombs with the ingredients and plants you pick up as well as coating your sword with oil.
add armour to your jackets and runes to your swords.
all in all a game that you dont want to end.
currently starting chapter 3.
