Not Bad

on 1/24/2013

The combat is good. Using the game's physics to kick unsuspecting foes into massive chasms or into raging fires is undeniably fun. In fact, using your environment to aid you in slaying your enemies is where the game really shines. Of course, a pretty diverse set of magic spells and archery options do their part in diversifying the experience, but melees have a good solid feel to them as you parry your opponents' attacks and line up your own.

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.
