I'm still wondering why they didn't make this as a DLC instead of being a standalone expansion because it feels like the exact copy of the main game but much shorter. Or why make it at all when it adds nothing good.
Set right after the events of the main game when King Rhobar III was freed from the control of the demon, you're playing as the same unnamed hero who is going to save the day again from... boring demons... sigh...
Now that I really think about it I don't get the point of making this standalone expansion. It adds nothing new. It is very short for both those who transfer save files from the main game or start clean. It is just as anticlimatic as the main game. The parts where you play as your allies is pointless and disappointing. It says it has new enemies but you only fight those enemies for just a couple of minutes. And the said new places and locations (lava, beach, dungeon) were already on the main game. Even the last boss felt the same as the last boss in the main game.
It basically suffers from the same problems as the main game (how many times have I said main game?). Uninteresting characters, boring story, easy gameplay, boring quests and so on.
This must be the only time I have nothing positive to say. And I really can't recommend it even to those who loved Arcania (which baffles me as to why would anyone like that horrible game, but hey we all got different opinions).
- Copy+paste of main game
- Yet another boring story
- Few minute encounter with the said new enemies
- Disappointing when playing as the hero's allies
- Underwhelming last boss
