"The least celebrated Geneforge game, it still offers the same kind of experience as previous games in the series, now in a revamped game engine."

Many fans of the series deride this as the worst of the "Geneforge" games, but personally I think "Geneforge 3" is when the series gets interesting. Yes there are only two factions this time around compared to the previous game's four and it's structured in a much more linear fashion, but what the game loses in freedom it gains in complexity of plot and ethical dilemmas. With only two major factions to choose from, neither of which are perfect, the game's universe approaches "The Witcher" levels of moral ambiguity at times. This is a game where goodness is often shown to have a steep price and evil often has justifications which sound strangely good. In a time when gamers are known to petition studios when the ending to a game isn't as upbeat or things don't turn out exactly as they wanted them to (see: fan uproar over "Mass Effect 3"), it's kind of refreshing to play a game so brazen about the fact that even the best of intentions to do good often turn out much less than good.

I am enjoying the third installment of the Geneforge saga. However, I am tiring of the "same song, different tune" story that is going on.

Generforge 1:
You are trapped on an island in bum-hick nowhere with intruders. You have to either join the factions or fend them off. Pick sides, escape, and "win" the game.

Geneforge 2:
You are inspecting this bum-hick nowhere shapper area and quickly discover things are not what they seem. Find out that there are different factions. Either join them or fend them off. Pick sides, escape, and "win" the game.

Geneforge 3:
You are trapped on a series of islands where there is a rebellious shaper on the loose. Either join them or fend them off. Pick a side, escape, and "win."

Now, I know that there is a different plot in the later games since I read ahead. Yet, the same plot is becoming stale. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the game and some of the new mechanics that came with it, but the story, in my opinion, is lacking.

7/10
-Love the graphics
-Love the game series
-Makes me think about the future of the story
-Makes me think in general (many games do not)
-Story is a bit stale
-Little sound effects
-New game mechanics
