First, the don't let the metacritic make you say no. This game is worth more than the metacritic. Personaly, If you read the ALL of the tutorials, its a fun game. It takes you about 25-35 minutes to complete the tutorials, not reading them will screw you in failure.
.Four classes, so when you finish a game in one class, you dont say, well Im done, you say, lets play another class.
.Mulitplayer. Dont let the "Single Player" fool you. If you can find people to play Guild 2, then your in for a party!
.Crime: Yes, there is a "robber" class, however you can't just to bad things willynilly. They will find out, and to court you go.
."Villager View" You know in Towns (a game I even still play) how you control the city? Well not here. You are a citizen in a town, trying to make a living. Yes, you can "run" the town, but once again, the game wont just say, Here you go.
.People speak SOME words. You have to admit, thats better than reading text. (you can still read the text)
. Ok, theres some bugs here, and some speaking issues there, but still, everygame has their bugs.
. The thing that bugs me is that you only have 3 people you can control at a time. Once you kick a person out of your group, they wont come back. (I learned that the hard way.)
. Randomly, you cant attack robber camps or houses. Its sort of bad, but still, you doing it for the good.
Overall, I give this a 9/10. Its a very fun game, and I will write more once I get the DLCS, and dont look at the bugs or the metacritic score, cause they will lure you away from a good game.
