Summary: I found this game quite a bit of fun. The graphics are good and the fighting sequences are pretty fluid with an adequate amount of variances. The story line was interesting with just the Fae being a bit too esoteric. Completely worth the money.
Very Very Long and a Little Tedious, But Potentially a Good Value

Summary: I just finished playing this game and while I enjoyed it overall, I can give you some pretty good insight into the good and the bad of it: 1. The graphics are nice but a little too cartoonish for my personal tastes 2. The music is good, sets the mood very nicely in a given area or for a scene 3. Creatures jumping out creates a startle and a sense that anything can happen. Even near the end it still can give you a bit of a jump. 4.
Summary: Very good game for RPG fans. Not on the level of a Skyrim type of RPG, but very good. Storyline isn't the best i've seen, but it doesn't leave you bored either. A good amount of sidequest, and different skill trees, give you a good amount of playtime if you don't want to rush through. The action type is more action based, think Fable/Dragon Age type of fighting.
Summary: I read a review on a games blog I follow (Rock, Paper, Shotgun). Based on that, and a good price on Amazon (mentioned in the article) I decided to try it. The critic admitted the review was late, coming out a year or so after the game was released, but had high praise for it. I love open-world RPGs (ie. Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, Dragon Age I & II, The Witcher I & II, all the Elder Scrolls games, etc.) and this one certainly didn't disappoint.
Summary: The battle system for this game needs to be looked at by game developers everywhere, as a model of how a combat system should be, if is fantastic, overall the game is beautiful, has that WOW feel, but it does get a bit repetitive. Checking inventory and swaping weapons is clunky, and could have been better thought out, but overall I am pleased with my purchase.
Summary: I have been quite skeptical about buying online RPG games. I loved the Elder Scrolls series so my expectations were very high. I recently played Witcher 1 which I liked a lot, but Witcher 2 won't run without being so slow and such mouse sensitivity that I can't stand playing it. I liked Risen, but also found it lagged. This game however, has been AWESOME! It is huge like Skyrim and with lots of things to explore.
