    The best RPG to date. I was disgusted with the "review" it got. They don't make games like this anymore

    This game is captivating from the start to the end. You will happily spend 100 hours playing this game and be sad when its over. A must play. The review said it was "shallow".. I don't want to live in this world anymore!... Read Full Review
