This game is getting a bit older now, but the graphics are still awesome. Great colours and flow.
I love RPG's and enjoy action games, and this is just the right mix.
The battles/fights are challenging but not impossible - although I did play them on the PC keyboard, I think it would be easier to play on a gamepad.
The game is prone to numerous crashes, and a web search will reveal the same grizzle world-wide - which the makers (CodeMasters) seem to have ignored and failed to produce a patch to address.
There have been some suggested work-arounds available, with this one seemingly the better one:
However, I just grinned and re-loaded every time the game crashed, and managed to stay sane throughout.
Another problem encountered was problems trying to select the 4th option in dialogs - being the bottom right option.
Web searches revealed this solution:
Press down or up key together with left or right - sometimes need both hands to do this while also press the ENTER key to select the option.
It is purely for the buggy-ness of the game that I didn't give it 5 Stars.
The story is linear, but there are a number of choices that can be made, leaving some open-ness to your own style.
If you are after super-high quality graphics and eye-candy, this may not be your cup of tea - better to stay with the latest graphics intensive games.
However, if you are after a great, fun game, that won’t break the bank and remains enjoyable - this game ticks all the right boxes.
There are 3 levels that can be played: Human - Hero or Legend. Of course these are the difficulty ratings.
One last tip: Check the Options Menu as to what buttons do what - there aren't many options to try and re-configure, but it seems everyone has problems finding out how to throw the spear - When all else fails: read the instructions : )
Would I play it again - You bet.
