Not many people have played this game...but it's actually quite good, and deserved more attention than it got. The interaction between the characters is strong, stronger than most, with each having more inward depth than your typical "action heroes" in fantasy, and E'lara especially is one ofthe few female elven characters who isn't simply a flighty songbird who needs help constantly, without going into the super-strong "I am a man with boobs" territory.
Gameplay is third person action/shooter, each character has a melee weapon with shield, and ranged weapon, with E'lara's ranged being stronger and Caddoc's melee being stronger. Melee is the weakest part of the gameplay, but the graphics, exploration and side quest aspects, character interaction, and general story is fairly strong. One or two quick sequences ruin parts of the game, like running from a giant spider where you only have a two second window to evade it or die instantly, and have to do multiple short sequences...
But it is otherwise a very good game, worth a playthrough, and Bethesda/Zenimax are one of the few publisher/developer combos worthy of your money anymore. From the people who brought you Elder Scrolls.
