Highly recommended if you enjoy hack and slash but dislike having to open every single box and search every enemy like in Skyrim...
I really have to set the record straight on some of the things mentioned here. You can play in 1080p and it doesn't look as bad as many say. The fighting is not as simple as some of the reviewers say either, once you start upgrading there are lots of special moves that you can do, even with the keyboard and mouse as your controller.
Yes the game is linear but often there are treasures and bonuses to be found when you take a small detour from the path.
The game has interesting information on the Knights Templar, most of it seems historically correct.
The first level is really bland but after that it only improves, the second of the 20th levels is a forest not unlike the Forest Near Flotsham in The Witcher 2, I really liked that.
It's not all fighting either, there are footsteps to be followed, doors to be opened, secrets to be found.
You have an AI or second player as your companion, I didn't try the second player but played with the AI and was pleasantly surprised by how good the AI player was handling himself/herself in the fights.
I really enjoyed my run of 20 hours in this game and highly recommend it! You just have to get past the blandness of the first level...
One point of criticism though, having to create an account for Kalypso to spam me on really ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off. I ended up using a fake mailinator account and that worked but still they should respect their paying customers more!
