    Typical hand-holding modern game, no brainpower required.

    Very addictive game once you open up and let it take you.

    This game is like a great book with a terrible cover and first chapter, if you actually open it and get past to chapter 2 it can suck you in. I played the demo and wasn't thrilled, but heard so many l...

    Best Combat System in any RPG

    Worth $60 actually

    Rated on February 12, 2012 by ibzj57

    In the current game market with everything either being a relaunch, or sequel it is a nice change of pace for something to be based on a book that can continue to develop as it's own gaming franchise....

    Just what I like in an RPG.

    Rated on February 14, 2012 by markopolo60

    I was initially not sure if this game would be good, but now I love it. It has many of the things I like in an RPG: great graphics, tons of interesting quests and treasure galore. It reminds me a lot ...
