|When energy is being sucked from a person to a thing... |
that's bad. Very bad.
|4 out of 5 stars|
|It reminds me of DnD 3.5 Faerun. When you could pick|
what region your character was from and got bonuses
from that selection. This game does that.
That's one downside to it. But one you know going in because you know it is an isomorphic game. Which is like that Blizzard game, um... Diablo! At least I and II... I played the demo of III and can't remember much at all about it. Those were isomorphic. Right?
|Every species has male / female, and two racial origins.|
Even the boring dull normal humans.
|Conversations have many many choices. |
Some will dead end a conversation right away.
Some will be blocked out due to numerous reasons.
Even better, you can hire characters who are not your main character, and are not plot-centric. When you hire them, you then get to create them from the ground up, just like your main character. This lets you play around with all kinds of character options in one game.
|I'm not sure how big your party can get. But mine's |
about this big, plus a wolf.
Oh, but back to combat. You may have to pause several times in combat in order to set up spells and use special abilities. Sure, random weak monsters are not going to be a challenge, but plot point bosses certainly can be.
The game looks to be very long. I'm only at level 3 so far. There have been mentions of me getting a stronghold... I'm not sure on this, but I look forward to it if it is true.
I'm enjoying the game.
I'm expecting it to last a while.
It satisfies my need for DnD.
