Definitively one of the best RPG's I've played.
25 February 2012 | by dockmannSee all my reviews

Despite what Mr. Cool says, I found it extremely enjoyable to play with a mouse and keyboard, the combat still has a perfect flow, and like him, the different options of weapons and the huge differences between these weapons made me want to change my entire setup (gear and weapons), just to try it out, even though it took a little while.

Mr. Cool sums the game up pretty good, but unlike him, I have probably used at least 40 hours on it. If it hadn't been vacation this week, I'd probably never have gotten the time to finish it. This is, of course, because I did almost all the side-quests. Unlike Skyrim, which I got bored by after some time, this game actually kept being interesting and kept me wanting to indulge in the different areas of the world. I think this is mostly because the areas of the world are so much different and because the side quests gives you an excuse to keep on playing, and because the quests are separated, so you'll always know when you're doing a faction quest, side-quest or main-quest. Unlike Dragon Age 2, another great RPG, this game also kept changing every dungeon, which for me was a huge advantage, because it kept the game interesting. But if you go for the short version like Mr. Cool, it's still really one of the best RPG's ever(and I've played ME1+2, DAO1+2, Bioshock, the Witcher). The only part I lacked, was the ability to romance with people, but in the end it didn't really matter. And unlike DAO I was actually left with quite a nice feeling after completing the game, because the last boss-fight was really satisfying.

To be honest I could keep on talking about how great this game is, but the last thing I'll add is how it is bug-free. I've not encountered any bugs. That's impressive compared to other game releases of this enormous magnitude (DAO2 with a bugged quest-line, BF3).

All I can say is: Try it. You will never regret it. I don't regret spending so much time on it.
