Reasonable attempt
Whilst technically there is nothing wrong with Clockstone softwares latest game, it's missing the charm that accompanied its previous title, Avencast. Greed:Black Border is about as mechanical as games can get. As far as story and plot go, Greed makes do with as little as possible on which to hang its gaming framework so don't expect any Machiavellian plot twists or just plain good old storytelling. If you have played any action RPG since Diablo you'll know exactly what to expect. The game also stuggles to forge an inlay into the cannon that is the science-fiction themed action RPG of which, lets be honest, there isn't one standout game (Space Siege anyone?). But that does not mean its a terrible game, only a mediocre one. There is still fun to be had here, if you can get past the lack of good storytelling, terrible voice work, shoddy inventory system and boss battles that will try even the hardcore gamers patience.

Yes, I agree a story is not really included. But I have to say this is underlying part of the game. It's all about exploring an unknown area. But I miss the outstanding events in this game. Apart from that it is far better than Space Siege.

Have you tried Avecast from Clockstone software? A far superior adventure that is actually what the EA Harry Potter games were trying to capture at half the cost. Its a budget winner :)

No, I have not. But now, it's on my list of must play games. Thanks for this tip. :)

I thought Space Siege was great, despite the bad voice acting, the lag at explosions and the enemys being tanks of HP basically, it was fine. The augementation mechanic was mehish, but Deus Ex (The original) did it much better, it was a fun mechanic to play with. But ugh! The nlast boss was hideous.

Good points. I wouldn't call this game a disaster - but honestly I think it belongs on a cell phone; it's definately worth 5 bucks or less -- glad I bought it on sale -75% - but it's lacking necessarily elements and fun factor to make me play in on PC; instead of slightly-more-costly or even F2P games.
