How would I sum this game up ? Mediocrity at it's best. I mean the game is fine, it has all the necessary things for an action RPG, but the thing is you never get lost in it, the game doesn't suck you in as other games in this genre do. I just didn't feel that pull to return to the game, to find out what happens next.
I've played a few action RPGs - Mass Effect 1-3, Witcher 1,2, Fallout 3, TES: Oblivion, Skyrim and all of them made a much better impression on me.
The strange part is I can't actually point to one single thing that is wrong or broken in this game. I said it in the beginning - it's an ok game. But maybe that's it's downfall - it's just ok, it's kind of bland, nothing that stands out. It ticks all of the boxes for an aRPG but never excels in any of them.
It's a forgetible experience for me and I jumped to other games very quickly. Compare that to my 70+ hours in Fallout 3 and you can see the difference.
So would I recommend this game ? Well it depends. If you're a seasoned RPG player, then I'd say skip this game. It just doesn't have anything to offer that you haven't already experienced in other games in this genre. If you the type that absolutely has to play all RPGs out there, consider this game only if it is on sale.
Now, for someona who is only starting his adventure with RPGs, I think this game might be a good starting point. It has all the basic mechanics in it, it will introduce you to the concept of open world games and it will only get better once you move on to other, better titles.
I myself might pick it back up some time down the road, or maybe not. Right now there are more fun games in my catalog waiting to be palyed.
