I honestly don't remember how I got this game. I'm sure it had to have come in a bundle since I doubt I would have gotten it otherwise. This is some kind of sci-fi action/RPG game with a slight Diablo feel to it. But it just falls flat. It works, it just isn't interesting. Have never tried it in multiplayer since I never saw anyone else playing. I am not recommending it, but if you can get it super cheap I would encourage you to try and decide for yourself. Did nothing for me. Not even as a time killer.

First i liked the game. I really did. Nice atmosphere, nice voice acting. Interesting skill system (switching active and passive skills on the move.)

BUT!

My save file got corrupted! Every time the game saves it crashes. I can restart the game and load the game at the saved point anyways, but u can't do that before a bossfight! (It will automatically save infront of the boss encounter = Crash. But it won't load there after restarting the game.)
It became impossible for me to finish the game.

And i can't recommend that. Bummer.

Controls are shotty and well kind of terrible. I feel like the effort that went into this game was lacking..everything. The story was...was there a story? Not worth even the on sale price. Tested and disapproved. Save yourself! 3/10 Only not giving it a zero because watching the friendly fire was mildly amusing..for the first ten seconds... :/

The controls suck so bad on this buggy, ugly and unresponsive poor excuse of a game that shortly after playing it i found myself Uninstalling it never to look back.

I played through the hole game in 10 hours. The game has good graphics as measured from the release date and the level design was also ok. I also liked the enemy design but the skill system and the equiment possibilities are kind of boring.
You only have one weapon per class so the fights always look the same run away shoot, run away shoot etc.
This game has a lot potenial but it lacks a good story and the joy of collecting things.
But if you are a big fan of the hack'n'slay genre buy it as long as it is on sale.
