I recommend this game if you're a fan of the Zelda games by Nintendo. This game plays similarly to those ones, segmented into dungeons with bosses and tools that you find in the dungeon to beat the boss. You progress through the game and improve your character by finding treasure rather than by leveling up with experience points, you have a finite magic meter that you can expand, etc. The combat plays like God of War, but it's actually the weakest part of the game. You have three main melee weapons but the game really doesn't do much in the way of involving them in combat. The Scythe looks cool but is weaker than the sword, and the gauntlet is too slow to be of use in combat. Most of the fights are "mash x, dodge, mash x again, press b to kill the guy." Some enemies which could only be hurt by a certain weapon or used different tactics would have been nice.
The story isn't anything special, but I do have to give Vigil Games props for using a setting (loosely) based on Revelation rather than the generic medieval fantasy world. The main character doesn't have much personality beyond smoldering with generic rage, but Mark Hamill's Watcher (the sidekick/Navi-type character) is far more interesting.
On the technical end, this game was not designed for PC and was ported horribly. There are no video options at all besides toggling V-sync on or off, and you have to force anti-aliasing through your graphics card manually. I got the game to run at 75 frames per second normally but I get huge stuttering and frame drops for inexplicable reasons sometimes. Keyboard and mouse controls are unintuitive and you can't rebind the keys. Using a controller isn't just recommended, it's required. Even then, some of the controls are really wonky. You have to hold LT to target and enemy but then have to hold LB to select your magic, meaning you have to deselect a target before casting unless you hold LT with your middle finger, which almost no one does, and block and dash are mapped to the same button for who knows what reason. The game also has numerous bugs. Don't be surprised to see it crash if you alt-tab out of it at all and then lose your achievement progress.
The technical issues don't really ruin the game, and I still recommend it for anyone who likes Zelda. It's a fun diversion despite its lack of originality.
