Started slow, ended up fun

I've always been a RPG fan! so I tried this game, and at first I found it really boring as the character didn't have many moves, nor did the game include tutorials. So knowing what to do or where to go wasn't obvious. But I sticked with it, read the instruction manual, started leveling up and advancing in the game quest (lots), then finally I was hooked. Top view camera angles can be something annoying, even for the most experience player, but in the end it has some fun factor. Definitely this game is better as coop, so find some friends (4 online). As for age to play, for starters you need to know how to read, there is allot of it. Lots of gore, which make it visually fun. Other then that, it's a very average game, a good pass time, but nowhere near game of the year.

Is It Any Good?

When first starting the game, the sheer amount of information presented can be overwhelming, even for experienced gamers. The highly detailed instruction booklet is quite helpful in figuring out some of these details. The meat of the game is an entertaining hack-and-slash title, not unlike the Diablo or Dungeon Siege series, where the emphasis is simply on amassing an astonishing amount of gold and more and more weapons and armor.

While there is a main story thread throughout the title, because of the amount of quests (nearly 600), the narrative gets lost. Nonetheless, the massive amount of enemies to dispatch combined with all the weapons and magic you get to try throughout the game keeps the excitement levels high.
