    I am not going to go into the story line because it is very linear. There Is no loot and there is no inventory. There is no town or quest log. It has a great sense of humor with the broken english ...

    This game is a refreshing change. Its just plain fun. If you tend to always lean towards picking the 'mage' class in other games, then this game is a must play. This game is humorous, action pack...

    They say there are bugs, these have been fixed two days after release. Don't listen to GameSpot, read my review instead.
