    Hard to be A God has some good and some bad elements, but it's better to play if you have a fairly powerful system.

    I find that the game has a decent, if uninspired story. It has a decent engine, which requires you to change clothing in order to avoid getting beat up all the time. There are some glaring problems I'...

    Played the demo, surely not buying the game.

    Usually it takes more than five minutes to tell whether a game is good or not. This time it took exactly 4 minutes (including loading times) - character control is cumbersome, horse-riding is mediocre...

    How can a game company dare to publish this load of bat excrement?

    Rated on February 22, 2008 by FallenMatrix

    I was looking forward to playing Hard to be a God... It's a total let down! The gameplay is incredibly simplistic. The AI is one of the stupidest I've EVER seen in any game of any genre. You stand ...
