Meh Is Overly Enthusiastic For This Game
22 February 2015
Summary: Half way through the game, I realized I was fighting the exact same monsters the exact same way. The only difference is that there were more of them each time. This made the game get real old real fast.
Summary: Here's my issues with Demon Forge: -The world is limited and linear, and shuts you out after you pass certain points in the level. - Bethesda seemed overly focused on making it's character's sexy rather than writing an exciting plot. - the graphics, while not the worst I've seen, are not what I've come to expect of out Bethesda - the controls are awkwardly placed.
Summary: On paper, this game sounded like an INCREDIBLE idea: Take the stop-and-pop, cover-based shooting gameplay that has become popularized this console generation with games like Gears of War and Uncharted, and apply it to a fantasy-based RPG. What should have resulted was one fantastic game. The actual result, unfortunately, was nothing remotely similar to what I just described.
Less than Mediocre and Slightly Better than Terrible

Summary: I recently finished my cooperative play-through Hunted: Demon's Forge and can safely categorize this game as completely mediocre and in many regards just outright terrible. There are a lot of things to dislike and a relatively small number of pluses. It's safe to say that Bethesda has delivered yet another below average game which seems to be their M.O. outside of The Elder Scrolls and Fallout titles.
Summary: I am, in a lot of ways, easy to please when it comes to video games. I don't knock on graphics too much...some of my favorite games to this day are from the Super NES system. I don't need the best voice acting, nor the most in depth story. Gameplay is king. Thats why this game is a pauper. First, the shallow stuff. Graphics are about a 6/10. The environs are more than adequate, but the character models of the two main characters are..
Summary: Good concept, cool cinematics and (some) well designed characters. But overall the game feels clunky and unfinished, and he story is hardly entertaining (it jumps straight into the action without any background on the main characters).
Excerpt: Hunted: The Demon’s Forge Tested and reviewed based on the PS3 version. Review by Ben Nacca (Follow me on Twitter: http://twitter.com/BenNacca ) XBL GT: Darkeyes2k7 PSN ID: Darkeyes2k11 When there are so many games to choose from these days, developers and publishers alike are trying to make their game stand out, to make their game the one you pick up and purchase. This is only natural and is the case with every consumer product pretty much.
Pros: Good hack and slash elements, Promising story
Cons: Dull drab locations, Poor voice work, Very average and bland
Even after completion, I have no idea what the name is supposed to mean

Summary: Pedestrian. Completely and utterly pedestrian. That's the only way I can think of to describe this game. It isn't bad in any REAL way, but everything about it feels so by-the-numbers and unexciting that I had trouble maintaining my interest as I progressed through. The story, such as it is, focuses on a couple of mercenaries, hulking man-brute Caddoc and scantily clad elf woman Elara, who are approached by Lucy Lawless and hired to find her father, who is leader of a...
