Lots to do & explore. (7/10)
The game reminds me of the old Heroes of Might and Magic games, except with quests.
The game is fun for the strategy involved and its exploration. There's some tedium, but it doesn't dissuade from the motivation of completing quests & getting stronger.
-Battles are fairly well balanced. You won't lose most, but you'll take heavy casualties without forethought.
-The graphics are nice & well-thought out. You walk on sand; dust plumes. Walk on gold, gold scatters.
-Music is nice. It's not monotonous.
-Lots of items.
-Lots of quests.
-Lots of spells.
-Several modes of transportation.
-Different battlefields. While most are the same, obstacles can prompt strategic thought.
-Side quests lack continuity with the main story line. You'll see these people once, and never hear from them again.
-Huge amount of reading for non-consequential stories.
-Skill tree doesn't provide meaningful skills. They're helpful, but there aren't many game-changing skills.
-Camera Mod preferable. The camera is pretty limiting. There's a mod that provides better angles and distance.
-Text is small, & sometimes poorly formatted. Again, there's a mod for this.
-No quick travel. You lose troops. You need to refill them. Travel 4 zones to replace the same type troop.
-Some timed quests without notification of timer.
-Low motivation for replay.
-Bugs. There are a few bugs in the game (such as incompletable quests), but none are game-breaking (as I know).
While I complain about long stories, they are detailed and entertaining. I just wish there were consequences for your choices.
I've only played one class, but replayability seems low. There are 3 different classes, each with a defining ability. You could try them out; maybe use different troops or a different difficulty setting. However the story won't change.
Aside from that I would say it’s worth its current price of $6.99. I’d buy the 3-pack though. Get yourself some different stories at a discount price.
