A good buy

Summary: Well designed and thought out game. It took a whole to get used to the controls and a track pad only situation is not ideal, but works. It is a great value and can be played for a long time, especially if one does all the side quests. The story line is engaging and can be followed even without delving into the extra bits of information provided. A worthwhile purchase and a fun game.
Summary: Loved the game, while I could play it. It forces you to use Origin game platform, which FORCES you to update Origin, which then causes the game not to work. When I could play it, it froze frequently, but since Origin has forced me to update, it wont work at all. If I don't update Origin, I can't get into game at all. After the update, again, I can't get into game. Not a happy camper.
It crashed...then crashed...then crashed some more.

Summary: Pros: It's consistent Cons: It consistently crashes. All this game ever did was crash, and crash, and crash...at least on my platforms. I tried it on a desktop (Intel i5, nVidia Quadro K600, Win7, EA Origin + Disc version of the game). It crashed so much it was unplayable - 7 hours of play, over 100 crashes. So I tried it on a laptop (Intel i5, ATi 5450, Win7). 3 minutes into the game, it crashed. I can't return this because it's a game/software.
Don't buy after 1-Jan-2015 Just another EA game that wont work with the new Origin Installer

Summary: I bought this game in December 2014 so its older. Unfortunately this is one of the older titles that wont work with the new Origin Installer. The game will not install on my system with the new installer. The game seems to be installed on my hard drive, there is a 7.65 GB directory containing the game on my hard drive and its in my registry, however the Origin Installer tells me it's not installed and wants me to download it and install it again which also doesn't work.
Summary: I bought this for very cheap during the promotional pricing and wasn't really expecting much but it turned out to be very fun! It's easy enough to figure out, and the combat is really fun. I actually took a pretty long break from Skyrim to play this one, Awesome Game!
Summary: Already played the Origin Game Time version of this, and it has great open-ended gameplay. Not the most graphically impressive, but it does well enough, while not being demanding on your PC's hardware. With an i5-3330 and GTX 750 Ti, I had a constant 60fps at max settings. I recommend an Xbox 360 controller or 3rd-party gamepad with similar control mapping. If you like RPGs in the 3rd-person view, you should like this one.
Definitely worth the price if you enjoy epic RPGs.

Summary: This game delivers! Fans of R.A. Salvatore will be delighted with the epic themes of the storyline. He also mixes myths and fables from around the world and incorporates them flawlessly into the story, giving it a rich and varied feel. McFarlane's graphics are amazing, and the game is absolutely fun. Despite taking a fighter, I used chakrams as my ranged weapons of choice. Between those and the fae blades, the battle movements were so sick that I drooled.
Great game, not supported anymore so no more patches.

Summary: I got this game a month ago, and play a lot of big RPG games, like fallout 3, gothic 3, fallout new vegas, etc. Have yet to complete it, it is huge! But the difficult level is acceptable, and there are a ton of side quests. this game will give you many hours of play, it can be tedious at times however, but I'm still playing it and have about a 50 hours in the game. The dialogue is good, the graphics are great.
