Fantastic and Immersive RPG, definately recommend this to any hardcore RPG fan who like to read pages of interesting dialogue. Then again if you are not into that sort of story and deph, this will not be the game for you.
Getting deeper into the story aspect without revealing too much, the world is divided into civil war, and you play as a single character awakening from years of a clouded and simple life. You can choose many different paths in Geneforge 5, aswell as many different dialogue options. All of this of course effects your outcome and the events you will receive, allowing countless amounts of replayability.
The gameplay is fairly simple, but fun and challenging. You walk around with your character and explore until you encounter an enemy and go into a sort of turn based 'combat mode' and fight that way until the battle is somehow resolved, in which you end 'combat mode' and the game goes back to normal walking around and exploring. Another very interesting part of gameplay unlike other RPGs, Geneforge focuses on your capabilities to construct creations from thin air. At first you can build simple creations, fire spitting lizards that fight for you, but as you level up the possibilities add up and soon you will have an army of creations that will prove to be quite a challenge for your enemy.
