If you were to summon Drakensang into one word, it would be 'good'. Unfortunately, that's all it is, whilst the story is well thought out and executed, there's nothing new or exciting. Combat isn't particularly ground-breaking either. All in all, it takes several hallmark traditions, makes it their own, and re-creates them well, but doesn't do much that's new.
Hardcore fans of the series will enjoy this game, people who like the old school RPG's will also enjoy this game. Heck, even people who just like a good story, or fancy some offline action for a change will find this game enjoyable. Just don't expect it to do anything different.
