I had seen this game before, but didn't have too big of an interest. I noticed there was a demo so I tried it out.
Totally wanted it right then and there.
The game can be fun alone, but I really recommend multiplayer for this one. You may have to open some ports to host games, but its worth it. Play through the story like that and people will drop in to join you.
Also, if you like local MP then this game supports up to 4 people on one PC. Playing with a gamepad isn't as quick, but it gets the job done since only one person can use kb/m.
Its pretty fun. It has a neat magic system with lots of possibilities and a bunch of weapons you can come across. Lots of different characters. A bunch of game modes. A few different campaigns, then some mini-campaigns, pvp arenas, and survival maps. Every mode is great fun to play and there's really a ton of content here.
Its one of those games with way too much DLC, but there's still a lot in the default game. Your best bet is buying the full bundle though during a large discount in a sale. I know some people can't stand loads of DLC, but it actually adds quite a lot without being too pricey.
The music was fitting, but nothing too memorial. I liked the artstyle. It was pretty and you can turn the gore off if that bothers you or if someone younger is going to play with you.
The story was pretty okay. Each campaign has its own. Its not really anything special, but its something there and gives you a goal.
Game runs pretty fine for the most part.
It still gets updated so it may have been fixed, but I remember having the multiplayer crash when on a team with people that had high pings. As long as I avoided having anyone in my group with over 200ms then I didn't have issues. Ran fine for the most part.
Overall its a fun game to play and has a lot of replay value. Go for it, especially if you have some friends to play with.
