Summary: After playing KOTOR this game is very, very depressing. The battle system is just not realistic in the slightest. You wander around with a character (just one, not even the whole party on screen) and open chests and pray for a battle to start. You cant even see the enemies while you wander around, they just sort of zip you away to a battle screen which has little or nothing to do with where you are on the map. Then it gets worse.

Summary: This game could have been so much better. What a great premise and setting, but sadly the actual realization lets it all down. The graphics are okay, but nothing spectacular. The combat system is awfully slow and repetitive, and the game seems to consist of nothing more than wandering around and fighting battles (oh look, 2 more wargs to kill, walk, oh look 3 orcs to kill, walk, oh look 2 more wargs to kill,...) You get the idea.
