A very uniqe game to say the least. Definitely worth playing for a few bucks. I have to say I liked the fighting style better in 3 but the map is more broad in this game. This series seems to thrive on wacked out endings. Wish there was more to add but the game is just simple rpg funnness. I wouldn't say the humor was that great here but still an enjoyable game.

Within my orb, the world is a memory.
All of my enemies, howl in the dark.
A crow man so lustrous, black feathers shining.
Black talons pining, to tear out my heart!

Well, the story wasn't as powerful as the third game, but the gameplay was better... or perhaps I was just used to it by now. The story was a bit funnier, but I still don't know how 'Penny Arcade-y' it is, especially when looking at the first two in the series.

The music finally worked! The third game's tunes would not start, no matter what advice I followed, and I must say, I quite like the soundtrack. I expected chiptunes garbage but this was pretty good.

I didn't like some of the characters, but because writing and interaction took a backseat in these games, I guess it's not too big of a knock.

Basically, every time I try to come up with praise, it's always weakened by some qualifier, or a reminder of what was done poorly. I'm sorry, Zeboyd, but I don't like your games, and I'm done writing about them.

the combat becomes unbearably repetitive mostly because one is so keen to rather keep experiencing the funny dialogue, and humorous but also dramatic story, so you end up steaming along trying to get it all done in one go, but every path is blocked by constant fights.

fortunately you can speed thru the fights by decreasing the game difficulty to "easy" (at any time) and holding down a certain key (i forget which) to accelerate the animations. I do recommend this game, but play it on easy. Combat mechanic is just too meh to bother with.

thats not to say that the combat is awful, its just that there is about 15+ hours worth of combat and thats way too much for what ends up being recylcing the same abilities in the same order again, and again....and again.....and again.

...and again.
