Summary: Highly underrated. This game has an epic scale in terms of lore, story, world, character, etc. Superb graphics and vibrant environments, gripping story. It has all that is need in order to go head to head with the best RPGs the world has to offer right now, and rightly so because medieval fantasy RPG seem to be on the decline right now. The economy, shops, crafting, stats, and skills are b road and complex. Myriads of side-quests. In essence, very high game value.
Summary: It's an amazing game. Starting with the basics, performance: I have an average laptop, and on minimal settings I'm able to run it with almost no problem at all. I'm excited to get it installed on my desktop and start playing on max settings. Gameplay: A rich storyline, plus a multitude of side quests means theres always plenty to do.
Summary: A good, solid game spoiled by an endless stream of combat. Play Drakensang: River of Time first as it's both the prequel and a more polished game. If you like spending 40 minutes fighting mobs for 2/3 EXP each while you get from the bridge into town, a run that takes you two minutes after the mobs are cleared, then this game is for you.
Summary: Old school RPG .. it was fun to go back to the days when the story and exploration were the keys to game enjoyment. You will find old favorites and a few surprises in this game .. it plays well and all aspects are as one would expect in a RPG.
Summary: Given how few new single player PC RPGs are published, I decided to try out this older one, and bought it for a great price (used). I finished the game once, and now playing thru a second time with a little more "wisdom" on how to build my characters and how to complete certain quests. After that, it will not be worth any further replay, as the game gets repetitive after a while.
Summary: This game won't launch, period. I have a high end gaming system and have been able to play every game I have ever purchased on it on highest settings. I read a slew of similar issues online about being unable to launch the game, so think twice before purchasing this game and throwing away your money.
Summary: If you prefer role playing fighters instead of mages... And if you like your fantasy world to feel more historically low-fantasy medieval (authentic looking weapons and armor, etc) instead of trendy, highly stylized, high-fantasy... And you prefer the "comfortable old pair of jeans" vibe of classic Tolkienian fantasy elements instead of bizarre fantasy "innovations"...
Summary: I had a hard time starting this one. It's a slow crawl, and despite the hyperbole around versatility you really don't get that sense for a while. But if you have the patience to stick with it, you'll be rewarded with a pretty decent storyline that takes you through a pleasantly varied set of quests and some really clever little bits of dialog and details sprinkled throughout.
Summary: I took a chance on this cheaper than usual out of the mainstream game. I don't like third person that much after being burned by Neverwinter Nights, but decided the price made this worth the risk. The game is not bad at all. It is a limited open world and I was able to free roam to an extent. My problem was that things kind of bogged down near the end and I never finished it. I can't even remember why, but it just dragged.
Summary: One of the crowning achievements of RPG games. The production value was tagged around two million euros. The developers over at Radon labs hit their stride and kept on going. They nailed the details, and the essence of tactical rpg games. The game is based off the Dark eye p&p game, very well titles have been released over the years, off such a well polished system. The combat rolls system rolls can take a while to grasp, for those unfamiliar with this niche of rpg's.
