I really like this game.
It looked to me like an arena fighting game at first glance so I always ignored it. I bought it on sale for 79 cents on a whim and I'm sure glad I did.
It looks like Titans Quest, but It plays very much like an MMO. Tab targeting, auto-attack, skills hotbar, camps of mobs you have to carefully pull, etc. If you aren't in to MMO-style combat, you may not like this. The combat reminds me of Vanguard and several others. Fights are quicker though, mobs your level usually die in 10-15 seconds.
The leveling is relatively fast so far. I've been playing about 6 hours and am level 31. I did grind out a couple of levels once to make an area easier, but it only took about 10 minutes.
A big plus for me is that there are 16 item slots, including four ring slots. I prefer many slots and slower upgrades rather than constant upgrades to 6 or 8 slots.
One of the things I didn't like about it are the slow walking speed when you first start the game as a child. But once you leave the tutorial island and become an adult, the walking speed is very good.
Another thing I don't care for is the day/night system. You have to find a campfire to rest, with the option of resting to restore stamina only, or until morning or evening. It seemed like I had to rest until night time to make one quest mob appear but there was no indication of this that I saw so I roamed around looking for him before trying to wait until night time. So far, this was the only time day or night mattered, other than picking some flowers on the tutorial island, and you are told to do that at night.
The last thing is the save system. You can only save at one of the campfires. There are plenty of them around so this is not a big issue for me, but a "save anywhere" would be nice.
I only went to the arena for a few minutes and it was kind of weird and not all that fun, so hopefully it'll be mostly optional.
The graphics are on par with most MMO graphics and the sound is adequate but there is not a lot of music.
Having finished all other RPG's that interest me, and being between MMO's at the moment, I'm having a lot of fun with this. I would have easily paid the full $7.99 for it had I realized what it actually was.
1) I finished the game in 13 hours at level 80.
2) The arena is optional. I never went there again and only lost a little favor with the gods for missing a tournament.
3) The night/day thing was not a big deal. There are 3-4 times someone or something will only appear at night.
4) A couple of the quests are a bit vague. I consulted a walkthrough a few times.
5) It did crash on me twice, both times after saving and entering a new zone.
It was still probably the most fun I've ever had for 79 cents, and is well worth even full price, imo, if you can overlook a few minor issues.
