I really enjoyed this game. It felt very much like a Crystalis throwback (which I've actually played through). I only did one play through and it was on Hard mode. It was fairly challenging and didn't require too much grinding. My in game timer was around 4.5 hours when I completed it.

The game runs really great. I never had any crashes or encountered obvious bugs. It's a great value and I can't wait for the sequel.

Play as the evil overlord for once! get revenge, kill stuff and be tottaly evil while doing it, the gameplay has just enough variety to keep you going. But think of it as a more RPG-ish zelda if that helps! Thats pretty much what it is!

Very beautiful game, the soundtracks are great, the gameplay is very fun and the finale is very well made. The only bad thing is, that the game gets a bit too easy in the end. I had more problems in the volcano than in the final stage. Don't know how it looks like in the difficult mode.

All in all, this game is very good. I can totally recommend it.
