Well... I got this during the Spooky-Game-Halloween-Event at a reduced price. And I'm glad that it wasn't this expensive. It's not that it's incredible bad or something like this, but... I can't put my finger on it.
Let's name some points I kept in my mind.
It's hard. Okay, I might not be the most veteran ARPG-Player. Maybe hard doens't fit at all. It's balancing is kind of strange. Those who played it will remember a given mountain with some krystal-golems at its top. Playing at Normal I made my way up there and performed not this bad. But.... when stepping inside some given secret laboratories, where you may get you very own second companion... it just was like I swiched to Extra-Hard difficult. On step out of your spawn-point and get mauled in a matter of split seconds? seriosly, dafuq?
And switching to causel made this even more strange. Most time its kind of boring, but at all I play for the story waiting to unfold more than playing for the monster-hunt. But then, suddenly, Instant-Dead because of I don't even know. Or monsters that take so much damage I wonder if they got a Zero to much when getting their hitpoints. Just to meet something that was supposed to be a Boss (certain spiders), but that went down in a matter of seconds. Strange.
Maybe I performed this bad because of the fact I never used one of these essences or even the runes. Why? Well, most time it just didn't work. Combining essences? Well... somehow, yes, but wait, why did I get something I just can use as soon as I will reach level 40?
Applying Runes? Insert here, place there... the Forge-Key remain greyed out. Dafuq?
*sigh* Sometimes I wonder how stuff like this slip trough a honest form of quality-control. Wait, no, I can imagine. Because the guys who tested this were able to ask. Maybe its incredible simple to do rune-smiting and stuff, if you just watch out for a nifty litty thing, that wasn't in the quick-tutorial...
Anyway. I liked these two protagonists (Fluffy ^^), and for the next weeks I will recall words as "incredible" in a very special idom. Unfortunally I missed part One and be afraid that this may be necessary to understand what really happens there. And... seriously, anyone out there who played this who didn't know from the very first moment what absolut unforseeable plot-twist some time in the game will appear? I just waited the whole game for this to happen. And finally...
Well. Get it? Or leave it? Hard to say. Some day I will give the arcane dude a try, but for now I won't play any more, because the story has been told. I really liked all that stuff you may find at these maps. especially that rebel-logo in that factory ^^ And I wasn't disappointed with the loot it hide.
But... well. It's a nice story, it contains funny moments ("just pretend we didn'T saw anything") and so on... But at least these rebellion-captains are a bit static, as the whole hideout.
Aw... just drifting away. That game has much potential, but I didn't played out all of this. Grab it, when you like ARPGs and don't mind unspecial Skill-Trees and stuff but like a good novel to play.
