the first thing i thought when i shaw the video is"holy ♥♥♥♥ balls batman i can be a berserking orc and kill all the weak hume's?" then i played the game. it was nothing like that video they show. it was more like they tryed a turn based game then half way through they stopped. after a few hours, i found my hard-on was gone. tear jerking story i know.
it is about a orc by the name of arkail and a goblin named styx(and yes it is the same one from styx: master of shadows). arkail is sent to out to kill the emperor to free his people from slavery and just being killed like dogs. other then what the main story tells you there isnt much back story to inform you, they told you about why arkail was called "butcher" in just 3mins and why styx is the only smart goblin in the world' again in just a few mins. i can try and sum up the story for you "clears throat" roid rageing orc and smart ♥♥♥ gablin set out too kill emperor. hit a few road blocks, then orc just solves them with force or goblin gets back stabbed trying to solve them his way. they fail' does a 180 back just to go the opposite way and gets back stabbed. now that i said that it reminds me of the redundancy of narutos storys.
it is not vary smooth. you have to either hot key your moves or use what is called the tactical wheel to use any moves. it is rather boring once you get a good set of moves you use, over and over and over again. the steath part isnt vary great, you just move into the area with people and kill them before they see you are arkails 8FT ♥♥♥ where you left him. but the game can get hard i can say that much, if you set it that way.
the over all graphics arent that bad, but seeing how they never make a scene from scrats, just take when you see then make there mouths move. arkails arms are so winde you catch him getting stuck on walls and doors in a few of the cutscene. all you seen about styx is him useing the same 4 motions for the whole game.
there isnt vary much. for a RPG you find the best gear in the first few levels then you are "set" for the rest of the game. people dont drop stuff you just magicaly get them putt in your inventory when you"find them" you cant loot people after they die. no, what you are looking for is a chest or a rather large bag that is glowing and setting at a dead end on the other side of the map that you need to be at.
you level too fast and you dont get much to sink your points into. it isnt tell damn near the end of the game do you get some new skills that are worth more then the ones you start with
all in all it isnt a bad game to get when on sale. it has little to no replay value to it. it wont scratch your itch for steath or strait up berserking with a 8FT orc. but the story is what sells it. good luck finding a game that lets you play as one of most fantasy RPG worst nightmares. thats right, im looking at you lord of the rings. JUST DIE ALREADY!!!
