Summary: This game is lots of fun. It feels more like a first person shooter then a RPG and that might be a good thing. The rope arrow is my favorite part of the game and I don't know if it exists in any other games.
Summary: The game is linear, however. Very linear. There are sometimes multiples ways to attack a problem, but this is the exception rather than the rule. Still, this game's structure provides a tight, action-focused gaming experience with just a smattering of lite (& I do mean LITE) role playing elements.
Summary: This game is a lot of fun, but its frustrating that certain classes can only use certain items. Don't listen to the haters. Play the game, and decide for yourself whether it was worth the price to pay for it.
Summary: American Reviewers were way harsh with this game; the UK reviews are more realistic.
Pros: Nice throwbacks to older series. Half life 2 engine and rag-doll physics. Fun hack and slash with lots of environmental combat. Replay is fun, I've beaten with Warrior, Mage, Assassin. Add on through xbox live adds paladin and warlock
Cons: Some bugs, crashes (on Xbox). Poor story line. Some spells and abilities are worthless. They didn't polish this game up.
