-Decent Story, and good story flow.
-Enviroments are pretty big
-Good crafting, and was easy to make money.
-Worth playing if you buy it for 75% off or more. It's not worth more money than that.
-Has a Demo you can download on Steam. Try before you buy!
-Fast travel is terrible, and feels unfinished. You get two portals to travel within each town, so you can fast travel within a town but you can't fast travel to a far away town. You pretty much have to run from portal to portal. Simply it's only half as good as the fast travel of Oblivion or Risen.
-The ONLY way you can sprint is with the Runes or Potion to run fast. Runes have cool down, and potion ingredients are limited. A real pain when there isn't a great fast travel built into the game. You get a little bored with the slow traveling, and discouraged me from backtracking to find all the statues etc for the bonus items.
-Dialog is really bad! Not the writing, but the mismatched inflections in the conversation. Most of the time the hero comes off as a jerk. It's like they recorded the actor saying one sentence then copied and pasted it into every conversation whether the tone matched the conversation or not.
-The mission tracking on the map is only good half the time. The other half you'll be googling to figure out where the heck your mission is located.
-Graphics aren't great, espcially sky lines and shorelines.
-Trader menu for crafting scrolls doesn't tell you whether you own it or not. Also you can't compare item stats you have equipped to items in trader menu.
-Women are not painted in a very good light. After playing through Arcania then Fall of Setarrif right after, I was wondering if there were women haters who worked on this game... The women are painted as stuck up b*tches, or ♥♥♥♥♥s.
-The PS3 version had Trophies, it would have been nice if it had Steam achievements.
