I really liked the game.
I never had time before (I like playing RPG's to it's full extent) so I took my chance to play it this year.
The graphics might be a little outdated, but I don't pay much attention to the graphics deparment, if the story is good enough. It would be fair to say that I had to start my game three times, being the third the one that didn't crashed my game, so I saw a glimpse of at least three origins.
The story is more than good. You have tons of lore, lots of dungeons (the Deep Roads are really big, though I've read before that they were impossible. They are not impossible, but it might take about 15+ hours for completion), and relationship development.
I had to admit that having and developing relationships not only favours your party members' abilities, but also is interesting to develop.
Combat: Well, having a tactical camera is awesome. Really awesome. Makes it easier to control all your party members, and making pausing the game an option, makes some battles easier.
But, battles are sometimes unproportional. You might sweep a boss easily, and be killed ten seconds later by a pack of wolves. So, be on your guard and save the game after every one or two battles.
Also, having in your characters ranged and melee weapons makes strategies come up easily. Even if you don't spend points in dexterity, makes your dwarf able to help instead of going into suicidal mode.
Tactics are good, when they actually work, other times they just get in your way.
In my opinion, this is a well balanced and inmersing RPG, with an inclination to battle tactics.. Glad I've made some time to play it.
