    Starting with no expectations, you wouldn't believe how fun it is for an unknown german game.

    I always recomend this game to people that don't mind playing games that don't have the modern aesthetics. You start this game almost nude and you have to fight for your first wooden stick, just in the beginning you w... Read Full Review

    A true masterpiece of RPG adventures. One of the best games I've ever played.

    A third person RPG tells tale of a nameless hero cast into a prison colony on the island of Khorinis. The atmosphere is thick in this game and everything around you seems to be alive. Wolves hunt animals in the woods, ca... Read Full Review

    You will be rich, don't worry!

    Although the first levels were extremely boring and hard, as long as you continue to play, you will start to enjoy. When I started to play, I hated that game, because it was really hard to kill any creature and also har... Read Full Review
