This game does look and play really nice. I think I just have to admit, though, that I just can't get into a hack n slash anymore. I really wanted to get sucked into the world of this game and spend hours roaming around and whatnot, but killer art design aside, it's just a button masher.

After playing games like Fallout and Demon's Souls, I just need more depth to my adventures. Finding a gem and then hunting for 4 more to upgrade my health does not do it. I like to have REALLY full inventories full of all sorts of crap. Free roam is almost a must have now-a-days and I'm not even going to get into the fixed camera thing.

If you love button mashers, this game is a must buy. Unfortunately, if you seek to interact with NPC's, travel at your lesiure and have a mix when it comes to combat then I would rent it.
