On the surface, and after a first impression, this game does not seem to stand out all that magnificently. However, it is still a very well put together game and fun to play, once you get the hang of it. Lots of good elements from other games of the past, reminds me in many ways of Knights of the Old Republic. Not an 'open-world' game but you still have some freedom to poke around in the corners a little bit, and there is more to do than strictly follow the story. This game also had more RPG depth than I had anticipated. There is quite a vast skill tree and many different approaches to how one plays the game. In addition there is a good variety of equipments, many of which can be modified in various ways to become more powerful.
The story and the writing itself is not exactly too wild or interesting, but it isn't overly shallow or lacking either. And once you get a little ways into the game the combat picks up quite a bit too. Overall this game is a great game to buy and to play, perhaps not one to buy at full price but still one to consider and definitely worth the cost
