Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Clunky but fun

Unrealistic combat with cartoonish blood splashing but no gory or brutal details of any kind. Quite a bit of profanity of nothing extremely offensive; the vanilla F word is the worst it gets. No other mature content. Combat is antiquated and has a learning curve but is fun with patience, world is fun to explore despite limited production values and playing around with the factions is surprisingly in depth even if the story is kinda eh. Hopefully the imminent sequel irons out some kinks.

One of the best RPG's since Skyrim

Elix is a big RPG with lot's of fun and interesting story(ies). This is at least as good as Skyrim was when it came out, a lot of variation, NPC's stories and nice ability/skill system. The combat system is of course a lot better than Skyrim had, but still there are a few issues I think should have been better, but it's challenging and fun. This is the best classic RPG I have played in many years. If you are looking for a classic RPG, with lots of quests and a huge world to explore, where you can go wherever you want, any time you want, then this is it. Recommended!
