I'm not sure if I've EVER encountered a game more uncompelling than this one.
* The music is dull / dreary
* The characters are booooooooooring
* The "combat" almost unbelievably bad
* The voice acting / accents / face models don't do it for me
* The story - well at least the story is interesting ... NOOOOOOOOOOT
hahhhaha oh my goodness... the fact that this game receives so much praise is almost enough to make me lose faith in humanity!
Maybe if I could be bothered to learn all the overly complicated potion/magic/spell bs it would make the game slightly more tolerable but there are plenty of other games out there that are way more deserving of attention.
ps: as for all the mods - I have a hard time believing that even the most ingenious mods could rescue this garbage.
