As one that has always loved playing mage in RPGs and other games, this is like a gift from the heavens, or at least in theory.
Don't get me wrong, I have loved every second of this game so far, from the slaughtering of helpless undead to defeating powerful bosses and learning the rich crafting system.
However, the game does indeed have some flaws.
The combats is, although fast paced and good looking, kinda repetitive. You don't get bored, but it's not varying battles or something like more open world games. Here you got 3 spells and then 2-3 variations of them, depending on your spell-setup.
Also,the variety of enemies isn't that great. You usually (as far as I've come in the game) just face off against some skeletons, zombies or the cultists that control them. The only exception is bosses and mini-bosses.
But enough about the bad, focus on what's great!
The graphics and setting of the world is stunningly beautiful, with varied environments and views.
It's actually fun to craft once you start getting the hang of the system in use, and there are great posibilities here. Sure, I don't know it all yet, but I'm getting there!
And of course it's always a pleasure to burn your enemies to death in a great blast, only to raise them as your loyal servants the next moment!
All in all I highly reccomend it for most people. It is story-driven and kinda narrowed down, so if an open world is your highest wish, this might not be for you though.
This is how mages should be, always badass!
