Wow, it has been a long time since I played the old "The Dark Eye" - Games. This game brought back some memories.
It has a nice atmosphere and is quite challenging. I really missed the roundbased RPGs, which is, for me atleast, revived in this. Sometimes you have to think ahead, sometimes you can just bully everybody down. Some fights are really stressful, while others are straightforward. The point is that almost no fight is like another one, each requires new tactics and strategies, atleast to a point. Of course you have your base tactics, which, in my case was a mostly ranged combat play style. But pure melee or multiple spellcasters sound interesting too. The good thing is that every character is can mostly do anything, aside the fact that only characters with magic potential can become wizards.
Another interesting thing for was the whole plot. Having played the other TDE games made it easy for me to fit into the world with its twelve gods, its mostly human based civilisation, with much prejudice against other races and of course its bright and wild country side, which makes this world a beautiful place. But the beauty in this is just a mask for all the darker happenings in this world.
All in all, if you love Roundbased Strategy, a good and detailed told story and funny, yet serious, characters, this game is for you. Just bring some time and patience, because the downside of this are the time consuming fights and the kinda missing background story of your secondary characters.
