A generic,bland,uninspired,clunky and technically subpar RPG game from the *gasp* makers of Day One: Garry's Incident.
You are Dysan,a shapeshifter who can do this cause,well it's not really explained...you embark on a quest because,not really explained either.
-the DNA/shapeshifting idea isn't bad,on paper.
-the soundtrack overall isn't TOO horrible.
-the shapeshifting idea is neat,but ultimately useless apart from the rat (to solve quests) and horse (cause it's bugged I guess? so every enemy ignores you,even if you shift in front of their eyes). I basically played the whole game without using any shapeshifting.
-graphics are bland,blurry,the LOD is seriously awful,models are bad.
-combat sounds are meh,music isn't too bad but there's little variation,also the combat music starts even if you take damage by falling.
-animations are awful,clunky,some skip altogether,jumping is BAD,it'll make jumping puzzles frustrating as hell.
-controls are awful,totally awful,clunky,unresponsive,have fun hammering that spell key 5 times before it finally decides to cast.
-combat is boring when it works (face enemy,smash keyboard hoping it registers),frustrating when it doesn't work. A little elevation will prevent you from hitting enemies,they also get stuck often.
-game balance is pretty bad,most fights are a breeze,a few enemies are too strong overall,stun abilities have a long duration,boss fights are best faced by running around,dodge their attack,cast a spell and then run around some more (waiting for mana) until you can cast again,boring.
-what little story is there makes little to no sense,most stuff isn't really explained,the characters are very vague,their actions make no sense at all.
-woeful game design,unfinished menu,little in the way of tutorials,the load menu doesnt exist,it's an ingame area where you choose a portal bearing the savegame date/time (WHY? WHO thought this was a good idea?). Also,date/time are often hard to read,so good luck loading the right save.
Stay away from this,it has no redeeming qualities.
