Steam tells me I purchased this game about 3 months ago during a winter sale. I didn't even know I had it until I was bored one day, looking through my games list, and wondered what this game was all about. I say this at the start because I knew nothing at all about this game when loading it up for the first time.
With that being said: I hate having to read through games. So you already know why I do not recommend this title. I buy books and magazines to read. I buy games to play and be spoken to. I love choose your own adventure books, but I don't like reading in a video game. Sorry.
However! I do like the graphics, the story was interesting-ish, and the combat was fun albeit dated. As games go you could do a lot worse. My bigest gripe are the skills. I decided to play as a theif, but none of the theif skills are relevant, unless an enemy is already suffering from a previous condition. And guess what? The theif does not have skills that induce the conditions you need to use the skills you have! WTH's up with that?
After realizing this was a reading game I decided to keep playing just for the achievements. Nearly 2 hours of playtime and not one achievement. Halfway through I got bored and started hitting the Return key to bypass all the text. Even still I only fought in 3 encounters the whole time. So there's a lot to read, but not a lot to play. And that folks is why I can not recommend this game.
