To start, ignore all the kids complaining about graphics.
It is true they are not as wonderful as many games out there but if graphics are all that matter to you, go to a video museum....
The game is much like Fable in the scope of things and the gameplay style but thankfully there is so much more worthwhile things to do!
Can you marry? No.
Can you play with a dog? No.
But does it have true open world gameplay, an epic story with 3 totally different paths to follow (Mage, Inquisitor and Bandit) and are there loads of skills from Prospecting, Alchemy, Magic, Potion Making, Scroll Writing, Lockpicking through to weapons skills for Sword, Bow, Crossbow and axe.
You can even mine for precious metals to make jewellery to sell, forge weapons and go grave digging!
With a wide open, twisting tale of deceit and treachery and the awakening of a god that threatens to destroy the land, this game will keep you coming back for months to come!
