Is It Any Good?

Unfortunately, sleepiness becomes a common response to Circle of Doom's dull action. Special powers are highly ineffective, forcing you to use only two attacks repeatedly. Instead of showing aggressiveness, enemies walk up as if to invite you to pummel them. Death is a rare occurrence, since the battlefield is littered with reviving potions. This RPG system is far too shallow, and the combat sadly becomes monotonous.

The story's prologue provides a solid foundation, but is then banished to dream sequences, which tell as little as possible about your character or the adventure ahead. You can opt to join a friend online in a co-op adventure, but there's little incentive with such mindless opponents. Ultimately, gamers who partake in this adventure will be doomed with boredom and frustration.
