This was the first turn-based game I'd played since SW: Knights of the Old Republic.

I enjoyed the storyline although to be fair it was rather predictable. The variety of playing partners helped add to my enjoyment as well as their individual quests and motives added to the story.

The difficulty level was just enough for me as a casual gamer to be challenging, but not so overwelming that I had to resort to cheats.

I look forward to playing the sequel.

Fantastic. I love games that you can take your time with and explore, and it's good enough to play again and lust after sequels.

A very well-crafted game world. What the writing lacks in concision it makes up for in quality. The RPG gameplay is engaging, if not a bit OCD-inducing. My major gripe with the game would be the repetitive ambient sounds used in place of music, but that mostly comes my having previously played other Spiderweb Software games that also recycled these sounds. Still, though, the gameplay and player-influenceable story are more than enough to make the game worth playing on their own.

Edit: after reading some of the other reviews, I should mention that I'm playing on Casual (not ashamed to admit it), so I'm not really experiencing some of the difficulty-related complaints that others are. Pretty much the only difficulty-related thing I'm running into is that I don't really have a chance to use up my consumables fast enough on Casual, so I probably waste more time managing my inventory than I might on a harder difficulty. But that's very minor.

The game doesn't have great visuals nor any music ingame, but that isn't why I give a negative rating. It starts quite interesting and the design of the first 'dungeon' is really good. Levelling the first ten levels makes your character a lot stronger plus the story and characters get you interested in more. I'd say after around half of the game it falls apart. The levelling gets boring and the combat tedious as every enemy uses special abilities every round to increase the difficulty. This is just annoying and slows the game down to a halt. The locations are overly reused and the story rushes towards the grand finale without making much sense anymore.

Overall it's a not really bad turn based RPG, but it's simply not worth your time eventually. There are better RPGs out there and you should be playing them instead.

Spiderwb Software is know for their old-school RPGs, and rightfully so. Intersting NPCs, well thought out story, and a well designed world that feels alive. Character advancment is solid and reminds me of Diablo 2. The combat is turn based and fairly well balanced. If you get stuck, or find it too easy, you can adjust the difficulty in game. I'm at 40+ hours at the time of writing this and I think I'm (maybe) half way through, so there's plenty of content for your money. Oh.. and no random encounters to frustrate you when you just trying to get around. Once you clear out an area, it stays clear.

That said, the graphics can be hard on the eyes. Literaly. If your screen isn't huge and you turn the resolution all the way up. It makes the text tiny (and there's lots of text!). Moving around gets a little tedious at times when quests have you running back and forth. (There is quick travel, but it only goes so far.)

This game isn't for everyone, but fans of classic PC RPGs will enjoy the nostalgia. I know I did.

Easily one of the most entertaining RPG's I've played since Morrowind. Has a pretty solid lore that give way to a genuinly intersting storyline with well written characters.

If you like strategic isometric turnbased RPG's, and are willing to look past the kinda meh graphics, then you will absolutely love this game. A solid 8.5/10 from someone who doesn't rate things lightly.

NOTE: Push past the graphics, you can do it. it's ♥♥♥♥in worth it.

My recommendation comes with a caveat, I am only recommending this to people who enjoy turn-based cRPGs. I personally am not a fan of turn based combat, which is the reason I eventually gave up on finishing the game.

Visually and audibly, the game is nothing to write home about, being made by one person it is understanable and they are functional enough not to detract from the game in any major way.

Gameplay in my opinion is bland and uninspired, the turn based combat is quite slow and you are often faced with trash mobs that make the game stutter along at a slow pace. Later battles are frustratingly difficult, as you have to spend a long time clicking through the turns before you sometimes realise you haven't a hope of winning and have to reload. I eventually got sick of trying to beat a particular fight and called it quits.

Where the game shines is in its writing and story, I really enjoyed pouring over the descriptions of locations and the characterisation is pretty good in the people you meet. I find it a shame I couldn't bring myself to finish the game because I would have liked to know what happens.

So I will recommend this game to people who are into old school turn-based cRPGs, but if slow pacing and turn-based combat make you yawn you might want to check elsewhere.

This is an amazing old school RPG, with an atmosphere very reminiscent of Fallout. Combat is turn-based and very tactical: range, position and zones of control are important, as well as proper use of character abilities. The party composition will vary, the player will usually have the main character as well as two out of four NPCs in his party.

Additionally, this game is perfect for loot♥♥♥♥♥ players :P since there are no weight limits for the backpack. The weird isometric perspective takes about an hour to get used to, the controls are otherwise very intuitive.

The story is quite original, for a fantasy game, and the characters are well fleshed out. The game is fairly linear, but there are many choices and optional missions along the way, and the story does give you a choice during some important moments. I very much recommend this for anyone looking to play a classic and fun RPG

I really loved this game. It has a nice isometric view, interesting story and it brings back all the happy memories of me in my teenage years, playing shareware versions of older Spiderweb Software games!

Finally beated it after 91h of addictive playing! Last boss was killed in 1,5h fight on EASIEST difficulty, so I recommend this hardcore RPG for all, who likes high skill turn-based games like Fallout Tactics, BG1/2, Icewind Dale etc.

Sorry, i wanted to like this game a lot, but i don't. It feels like your not in charge. This game made me feel like i'm the president's janitor. Whenever something important happens ( like revenge for your teammate , fighting the bad wizard) the game makes the choice for you what you want to do. This makes everything you do seem inconsequential, if it's important the game Makes Sure You Make The Correct Choice. You are just left to clean up.

Not Spiderweb Soft's best work. Not even close. Boss fights can be HORRIBLY unbalanced. Been trying to beat the final guy for over an hour, on the lowest difficulty setting with a max level party and the best weapons/equipment in the game according to what info I can find online. Attacks that did ~80 damage to the previous boss now do at most 14 damage to him. His health bar hasn't moved a single pixel in the last twenty minutes. And the kicker? I've been using the cheat codes every single turn. Pretty much have to, the boss gets 5 actions most turns which he uses to apply conditions to all 3 party members. He keeps magically yanking his own soul out to create golems that make him completely immune to specific types of damage. Have to spend 2-5 turns smashing the golem before being able to touch him and most hits are registering damage in the single digits. Pure frustration.

Heyyo,

Spiderweb Software have been making CRPG's for longer than I've been into PC gaming... that's a long time. They always do 2D sprites on a 2D isometric or top-down view and their games are always deep with solid RPG mechanics... usually it's just the storyline that changes between their game series, but trust me... if you're into CRPG's? This is a damn fun title to play. So build a party and start slaying some stuff! :)

This is absolutely one of the biggest disappointments I've ever had on Steam. Please - check my reviews, I'm no troll. In fact, this may be my first bad review. However - this game is a mess. It hangs up, saved games aren't reliable, the screen settings aren't reliable... read the forums. The most posted involve the game bugging and not continuing (in any of a number of ways/quests). What's sad ISN'T that a game has bugs (though for a coding as old as this, it almost is) but that NOTHING is done to alleviate them in the years its been out? This game is continuing to be sold - they rewrote it for Ipad - and it has the same quest lockups/resolution issues! I'm sorry to say it (because I've TRIED to like this game) but it's not worth it. Look elsewhere.

I'm biased because I'm not typically a fan of these kind of games, but rough graphics, poor sound design, fairly cheesy writing, and to top it off, some terrible font choices for the tons of required reading make this game a firm thumbs down. I could probably play some more, but I really didn't want to.

I like old school RPG games like Fallout 2 etc. However I did really try and like this game butit was just too slow, takes far too much time to get anywhere, and objects on groud are hard to see and find. Maybe 20 years ago it would have been ok, but just too ugly and boring.
