Does exactly what i thought it did.
The interface needs a little redisign in order to be less confusing. i was able to learn the interface in a few hours but the main interface and the tutorials to use it are a little lackluster
This is a program which does what it set out to do, to help you design games. The set up time in order to create you story or game is a long road as you have to make templates to have items or characters recorded in them, and before you can create templates you have to make features like a feature for more advanced characters or a feature for dialog. Once you make all those though its very streamline and easy, and any change to the templates changes all the items across the entire project allowing you to add things like dialog or a thing for the name of the enchantment for your sword.
Also to top this you can export all those features with all your information into a file and have your game or program refer to that file in order to build your level or decide character dialog. This program is extremly powerful.
Price is a big issue for this title and it does cost alot to buy this product, however there are a few things to remeber, it does go on sale, they do not sell 1 million copies of this program they sell 100,000 copies of this program so they have to increase the cost to make thier money back, and this is a very well made and advanced program and is not a throw away thing like so many other programs that are on steam. AAA game stuidos use this for pete's sake.
this program does not go out of its way to make itself complicated and unusable. most of the mechanics in this program can be learned in a couple of hours of messing with it and you can look up how to do the more advanced things if you are serous about using this program to help you build a game with the file export feature can be learned online in tutorials.
Final score: 8.25/10
Get it on sale and its: 9/10
This is the review for this program WITH the Extra content from the service pack.
DO NOT get this program and not the second pack and expect the same results as me. The orginal version is unfinished and in great need of the second pack in the DLC section below.
I would say that if you intend not to get this program with the service pack below, don't get this program at all because it stinks without it.
This is my review on the original product just copied over to this one. you might as well not get the original product without the service pack.
