Please be honest and don't be a fan boy ;)

It's good. It's like a very linear version of Game of Thrones, but not as good in terms of story or acting (not bad, just not as good). There are puzzles and switches too, so maybe a little Tomb Raider-ish. The combat takes some getting used to, but I use a controller and it is second nature now. You do have to create an account and register the game though, so I am a little wary of how this server authentication (account log-in every time you start) will work in the future.

Ok thx, I think I'll pass on this one :)

In all fairness, I am only 6 hours into it, so maybe you shouldn't discard it entirely as a possibility. The graphics are good and it can be fun. I picked it up for a bargain price, so I feel like I got my money's worth ;)

I wouldn't recommend it at $19 though (current Steam Store price).

It's a decent hack 'n' slash action game with a long campaign (15 -16 hours) and a fairly good story. There are some puzzles to figure out and traps to avoid along the way, but nothing terribly difficult. Combat is simple, but enjoyable.

There are a few stealth sequences too, but they're mostly optional. Sneaking around and quietly killing enemies works, although it's made easier by some dumb enemy AI.

The entire campaign can be played co-operatively, but the AI of your partner is pretty good if you can't find someone else to play with.

Graphics aren't great, but they're serviceable enough. Character models and animations are mediocre, but most of the environments look pretty good.

There are a fair amount of collectibles to find, if you're into that sort of thing. Pretty easy game for achievements too.

I'd give this game a 7/10. Wait for a sale, though.

Much appreciated, thank you.

If anyone is interested and don't want to pay the full price for that bundle I can get you this game for 1 key + 1 ref, my friends don't want to play this (fools lol) so might as well give it to someone else

I'm 10 mins in and hate it, I got it for a few cents in a bundle and still feel ripped off. If you already have a decent game play it again instead of loading this steaming pile onto your HDD.

the game is bad if you're playing it alone, but is much better in coop.

Everyone is different. I play this game alone and it is a fine game for it's genre imo. Can you expand on "bad" a little?

I'd ask "d00hicky" to expand on "steaming pile" but I think it's clear where that would lead ;)

I meant most of the people, i personally enjoyed the game in singleplayer but not everyone is like you or me..coop can be more fun cuz you can resolve puzzles with your friend and stuff like that

It's been a while and I don't want to start it up again, it's not the worst game ever made but I can all but guarantee you already have something in your library worth your time more than this. The thing that I remember being the worst was little tiny rocks and plants blocking your path. You can't jump and being forced to walk all the way around because there was a pebble on your way. My example is just one thing, everything in this game is done better in other games.

well, it might not be the best game, but it's still worth playing.

I also got this in a bundle, for the price I paid its been a good couple of hours so far and sounds like its got a decent enough lenght to the games story. Sure not the best game I have played but its far far from the worst. Get it when its cheap tho ;)
