I normally only give a game a review if I like it. I figure, to each their own, and maybe I just didn't like a game because it wasn't for me - so why waste my time writing up a negative review?
In its current state, I don't think you should buy this. Plain and simple. I take the Metascores with a grain of salt, but this one really lives up to the score. Overlooking the graphics, the game just isn't up to par. Constantly having to click to move (can't just hold the mouse button down), while trying to avoid getting your character stuck on who-knows-what in the process, is just painful.
I like isometric RPGs (Diablo, Baulder's Gate, Torchlight, etc), and I figured I'd finally give this game a try since it got buried with a bunch of other games from some bundle.
The first NPC you see after spawning asks you to get your gear from a chest on the ship. Is it the ship directly in my field of view, right behind the NPC? My gut says "yes," but my character couldn't seem to board that sucker. I could manage to click him to the top of the plank, and then I was met with an impenetrable wall. After about 5 minutes of clicking around, mucking around on the dock, and coming back, I was able to finally get on the ship by clicking near the crate on the downward plank. I have no idea how or why it worked, but it did. Now where's that chest with my gear? I dunno. And don't get me started on stairs - traversing any non-level surface is going to make you want to jab an old #2 pencil in your eye and break it off.
This really should have been an Early Access beta release, as the game does have some bugs and glitches, and doesn't feel stable enough for the retail market. I wish the dev team luck, and I really hope they can make this game rise from the ashes, because there's a lot of potential awesomeness here.
