Summary: I was very skeptical about purchasing another Fate game after the first one. In fact I had lost interest for a few years because life got extremely busy, but I found one day drawn to playing it again. The only trouble was it was on a box computer I had sold for a laptop. I set out to buy a new one and I saw this one as well as Undiscovered Realms. I bought them both and this is the first one I have played. The graphics are just as great as the first game.
Summary: This game is a real value and anyone who likes the first two Diablo's or Torchlight will love this game. Its a long game, really three worlds in one plus a final 25 levels on top of that. All told you will be slogging through about 120 levels in 3 different worlds plus a final 25 levels in another dungeon quest after the 3 worlds main bad guys are defeated. What can I say except I love this game.
Summary: This game is great. It has a simple control system and fun game play that keeps me coming back for more. As stated in other reviews the game DOES include the previous two games BUT they are not separate games. They are all incorporated into this game. You can go through the game and play the previous games' quests and towns but the gameplay and combat system stays upgraded to the The Traitor Soul's.
Summary: Two complaints: 1) The additional dungeons are just that, additional dungeons. You can get the same enjoyment out of the original by deep delving. Some additional character types, items, monsters, and spells, but if you've maxed out the original FATE character (lvl 99), you can just mop up the new FATES without picking up anything or using any new spells. Nothing new about the format or interface.
Summary: Part 2 and 1 were the best (Part 1 especially) and this game starts off equally as fun and exciting. So you settle down and enter the fantastic world of Fate and get your self invested into your character and get moving on those quests. Yay! FAIL! Then you learn that all those weekends were all FOR NOTHING because the game has a glitch where you can't find any of the Hero Items which are necessary to win so you never move on.
Summary: When I look for an RPG game to purchase, I'm looking for something I can lose myself in for more hours than I could possible want. I also like good (read: ridiculous) value for my dollar. Luckily, there are many PC games out right now that fit that description. I'm not a stickler for graphics, I'm all about the fun. I also enjoy being able to customize my character and experiment using different types of builds. Fate gives me all that in a whimsical, cartoonish package.
