I really enjoyed this game. Its a decent story and the gameplay is about right (not too hard, not too easy). Its like a simplified version of the Witcher. It runs about 25 hours which is about right for me. There is very little replayability as you have just one character to play. Be sure to invest in special moves (big hit and roundhouse) and gifts (freeze, speed/shield) as those are essential for bosses and the more difficult monsters. The normal hacking is only good for weaker monsters. You should also spend AP points on attributes such as Strength and Courage as well (and some vitality) but don't put too much into talents as they are pretty useless generally (except for medicine which is useful for recovery). Dodging was useful in this game but parrying was pretty useless so you can forget about the Agility attribute. All in all, I recommend it strongly.
