i was very sceptical about this game, but after 2 yrs, I finally tried out the demo lol.
Good ARPG (bit of tactical), has solid real gameplay and characters (skilltree).
It is fresh and fun experience.This game is "next-gen"+traditional at the same time and it is the best next-gen isometric arpg when it comes to combat, even visuals/physics.
The combat/mechanics are smooth and good, creative monsters are well done , and game is hard/challenging.(except when AI is doing stupid things) Mobs may low in numbers but strong.
This game title is long/weird and makes you to think it is a bad game, it is not :)
this game builds up on diablo 2 mainly, and expand it more further in some areas, but manages to find it own "personality" so it doesnt feel a copy paste clone when you play it.(however some areas lack compare to Diablo 2, but it is not a big problem)
Beautiful visuals overall on maxed settings, except some animation/effects are very simple/ugly.
Havent got performance issue also, aside from a bit big loading times.(i had some kind of weird stutter but nothing serious on a specific map even with high fps, it went away when killed some mobs) Game has multi-core suport
I hate cutscenes in games but atleast you can skip them fast here, or just fasten up the dialog if i want.The story/quests are good.
Due engine being limited maps are rendered like in PoE,so no huge never ending maps but the background is "deep" and solves the mapsize problem a bit visually.(i dont like loading screens)
i dont know much about multiplayer or crafting and loot played only sp, yet.(but i dont expect big things in this are, doesnt look like an endless grinding game)
if you dont like the cartoon look of torchlight, or you dont like diablo 3/ Path of Exile or tired of it.--Get VH, however this game is maybe smaller than those when it comes to mp i guess, it is still a good and hard arpg with nice charachters and creative ideas/execution.Campaign is more enjoyable than most arpg for sure.
