Magnificent story, but awful ending.
This is a fantastic experience until the disappointing ending. We play one of the greatest figures in the history of Christendom and the setting is perfect. The terrors and degradation that great Christian martyres such as Nicolas Eymerich had to edure and cleanse were many and he goes about eradicating festering filth very well.
The dialogue is a major plus as we are treated to wrods of wisdom throughout and the voicework is done perfectly as it really gives you a feel for how life was at that time for the church brethren.
The plot contains one of the worst heresies of Christendom, Catharism, though this abomination is not dwelled upon for too long. Fortunately, the evilsof Catharism was wiped out after a magnificent siege of their mountain stronghold.
While the story, characters and voices are brilliant, some of the controls are sticky as I would have to keep clicking on things a number of times and also there are lots of triggers that open up items to collect, even though you know you will need them earlier, but they can't be collected till needed. I never did understand the chicken and the pulley though.
I had to use the cross (auto complete) on some of the puzzles as they were tricky, mainly due to the game mechanisms being not totally user friendly.
It was a wonderful experience until the awful ending, which kind of made no sense and just appeared to end really abruptly, with a message about the next installment.
I really hope the next chapter comes out soon.
The main character was the writer of a magnificent early work that was the forerunner to the great Malleus, that helped to reduce the fetid stench of witchcraft in the Middle Ages.
If only we had people in the church today as charasmatic and effective with vile heresy, Islam, the position of women and the filth of the modern world that plagues us constantly.
A highly recommended experience.
