Like most people already wrote, i really can support theier views.
It's the most broken/buggy game i tried since a long time(tried it on release, and now gave it a chance again). Many graphic glitches, crashes, sometimes broken quests etc..
Also generally this game is very unbalanced/linear and get's boring very quick.

sorry but i can't recommend this game to anyone. i tried it 2 years ago (2012) and again now. the game is extremely linear. the graphics leave something to be desired. the camera angles seem forced. the mouse/keyboard controls are not good. please don't waste your time and money on this game.

Baaaad dnd license cashgrab. Looks bad, plays bad, repetitive, not challenging, boring, no story, little action. Bugs here and there, not much to do except keep playing on and on. We finished this coop, but it was not worth the little money that we paid.

No online multiplayer... Uses defunct GameSpy network. No key binding customization at all. Had to edit ini file to get proper resolution. Sadly, it coule be a great game, but I'll never know due to these issues.

So, I played this entire game through from start to finish. I was really looking forward to playing this game, because I am a fan of the actual roleplaying game. To say the least, I was thoroughly disappointed.

The game suffers from lighting errors early in the game, which already establish a bad image for the rest of the game. The annoying lighting errors aside, the actual graphics of the game aren't horrible, but aren't impressive either. I recall some texture errors on armors, in which a glitchy texture covered the entire armor set. In addition, I also recall many of the armor models being reused, so quite a few of the armor sets look the same.

The actual game play is accurately described in the description as, "hack and slash", so I can't complain about the mostly tedious game play. There really isn't much room for character development, which is capped four different classes, each with its own race. I will however say that despite limitations, the concept of leveling up, and upgrading your equipment, is what keeps the game playable.

As for the actual storyline, I won't spoil any of it, but I will say that in my opinion, the storyline isn't satisfying and the final boss fight is nothing short of frustrating and redundant (and for me, one of the lowest points of the game).

If all of the bugs were fixed, and there was more room for character development and development, then with some expansions onto the actual content (like maybe a sandbox mode or more of a storyline, because the actual game is very short), then this game would be a decent game. However, at its current phase, I cannot say I would recommend it, and overall I was disappointed.
