So, this was another in a long list of games I own that came from some bundle or another. It looked pretty cool though, so I thought I would give it a try, and I am glad that I did.
It's not the sort of game that will blow your mind, but what it does, it does well, and is the true definition of a solid game. An RPG that has similarities to Zelda-esque games as far as art style and even mapping ot an extent, but without really trying to be that at all. In fact, I would say this game does a good job of establilshing its own identity, even though you will find it to be similar to other games. You are basically witnessing the developers influneces, but enjoying their own vision.
The game incoporates a lot of pop culture references. The Holy Grail references will be the most identifiable, but there are plenty.
The story itself is solid (pretty much the "a great evil has entered the world and you must try to save the world and everybody in it" type tale), as is the gameplay. The combat is fun and real time, there are plenty of traps and some decent puzzles. It's really a nice (pleasant even) game that does everything right and really nothing wrong, without trying to be something it's not,and manages to do all that without falling into the trap of doing more than it should. In a way, it is hard to describe this game because it is so uniformly solid, that, while not a great game, is in fact a very good game and one worthy of your attention. It took me about 9 hours to finish, and I'm not the fastes gamer I imagine you could finish it in under 4 if you really wanted to, and weren't worried about completing everything.
I recommend trying it out. I think it deserves 7 out of 10, and probably 74 out of 100.
