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.
