The Slaughtering Grounds has better combat.
Pac-man has a more gripping story.
The original Resident Evil has better voice-work.
The graphics hold up worse than Pong, and this was released last year.

This game stars a knight who is so inept that jumping hurts him, walking into crates paralyzes him, and swinging his sword causes him to spin 30 degrees. The first level is a key-hunt that is completely impossible to complete without a walkthrough. Even with one, it's still absurdly aggravating. The second level forces you to wander a tiny forest killing enemies that may or may not respawn. After killing about five enemies, I made the mistake of pressing the spacebar, causing me to jump and promptly drop dead.

... and this game costs 9 euro?!? i started with hope that atleast the beginning of the game will be bug free... find a key and sword... i was walking around for 20 min until i decided to look walktrough aaaaaaand... the enemy is not spawned i can't get a weapon and can't continue. WOW.. just wow! this game is in my list for worst games ever! i can't pass tutorial!

the UI is horrible, the game crashes often, save works 50% of the time, the loading screen reminds me "the forest" in its early aplha versions...

its like pre-aplha stage game!!! i will never install this JUNK on my computer!

... FROM NOW ON I WILL READ REVIEWS BEFORE BUYING SUCH GAMES!

I bought this game as a competition to see how ♥♥♥♥♥♥ games could get. All of my friends games got blown out of the water, the window, the world, and the universe.

Okay, so the game-play......oh boy, where do i start?
You think the first 5 minutes of skyrim is boring? oh god, most of my hours was completing the first damn level. I couldn't find the required items without using a guide, and even using the guide was difficult. It took me 30 Minutes to find the sword (what you require) using a guide. The map is so large for finding one damn thing, and the rest of the last level? you guessed, finding keys to unlock doors to give you more keys. There is really only one good part of the game, the buggy mechanics. I BHOPed all over the castle and killed myself laughing from the mechanics more then what i did do the finding. Also, there are dead civilians, not scary at least since there is one death face, even for females. and that death face is a males face.

"Lord gaben, next time, could you please recommend me a better game then this 0.5% completed game? Thank you lord, lord gaben"

Judging from the "epic" main menu intro the devs are really proud of what they did here. They shouldn't.
Game looks dreadful, level design is all over the place and does not make much sense.
When you turn your viewpoint around the whole skybox and the moon starts to spinn in a weird fashion.
Also your character gets stuck on everything mostly on stairs that you supposed to use.
So what I did in the game? I was trying to "glitch" up to this damn oil bottle for at least 15 minutes, after that I run aimlessly only to find lots of locked doors. At the end I got myself a weird torch thing and my character geometry broke.
Not really new Dark Souls. Not at all.
