I know it's kind of a traditional RPG and they're not known for flashy action but the combat looks like complete ass.
No offense to the reviewer but it doesn't sound like a chick. Is Carolyn a new type of dude's name? Weird.
Looks like russian game, annoying tutorial, very bad controls , like game from 2000 year, sad but true, was waited some good rts or any other genre except boring same sam same first person shooters for brainless
there is many games already like this, so when all you do is copy other games and bring nothing new to the table of course it will blow.
@aepervius The problem i have with people is that they judge a reviewers voice very quickly. And here on GS with every video review Carolyn gives its the same comments over and over again. One can say that i and others have to levee with that. But i think its not normal that some people judge someones voice like that. I bet that 90% of the people who comment the voice of a reviewer have a terrible voice themselfs. I watch a lot of youtube reviews as well. Half of those guys/girls hardly have a good voice. But i don't care, as long as a reviewer provided good information and does its job right. A voice is a voice, we sound like that. There are only a few people in the world who have a great voice over voice. If you are blessed with such a voice than i sugest you make your living with it cause those people can get rich. But really hardly anyone has a great voice especially when used as voice over.
This review really hurts, I was really hoping this game would be good since I loved the miniature games so much. Not that its not a fair review, its just that I was hoping the game to be better than this maybe a 7.5.
@dutchgamer83 this might be old news for you, but hearing the video I was thinking "what the heck, they put the wrong name in the video". Now reading the comment I see why I was in error, and I certainly won't be surprised by the voice in the future if i see her name, but you gotta give some levee to those who don't know. Onto the game : a pity it sounded interesting but now I am well informed thanks to the review, and i will pass on buying this.
Thanks for this review. I kicked around the idea of giving Confrontation a shot when I saw it on Steam. Glad I didn't.
A well done review. You clearly present the numerous considerations that went into your rating. Keep up the good work Carolyn.
why does this game seems so incredibly similar to Alien Swarm to me? but like, you know, with swords and magic. is it just me?
@bernstein1986 Don't worry, I don't. The support of you and other readers makes it easy to ignore those comments, so thanks! :)
Damn shame. This is the kind of game I would have loved. Like DAO. Make a party mix and match who to take, levelling up, that's the spit! Shame to hear about the lack of polish, exploration and obviously, these games need LOOT! Maybe with a couple patches it might get better in some aspects.
Carolyn, I hope you don't take any offense to these idiots complaining about your voice. Lets keep the comments about the game, not the reviewer. Nobody cares to read that you don't like the voice in the review. Good review of a bad game. These reviews are just as important as A+ games becuase we know to avoid games that are this flawed.
@Armyboy5 Guess you are new to GS. Everyone know what the deal is with Carolyn, and about 90% accepts it and calls her a she, cause she is one now. Only the most narrow minded noobs like yourself seem to have trouble with it and think they need to comment her voice. Really kid, grow up of go away.
It's sad, because you can read between the lines in this review and see that it could have been something much better.
Thnx for the review. This is one of those games that I would spend an hour considering when it shows up as the daily deal on steam. Now I can dismiss it immediately :)
@Armyboy5 would be nice if kids like you would stop commenting Carolyns voice. Every damn video review of her its the same. We know it by now okay, some people don't like her voice blabla. She generally provides good in-dept reviews with good points. So get over it no need to say that every damn review again. For the game, i was interested in it but waited for a review. Now I'm glad i waited. There was a serious lack of gameplay footage on youtube, and seeing how dull the combat looks like here and the lack of a interesting story i will pass on this product.
Yea...so a video review for Confrontation and no video review for Fall of the Samurai? Wonder how Gamspot chooses games to make a vid review for them...
I have no idea what people are talking about! There is nothing wrong with Carolyn's voice and she brings a literary depth to each of her reviews that I find refreshing.
The game looks like trash, it might have been worth something to me if it was made in 2004-5.. Also I don't mean to offend but the reviewer's voice hurts.
I was looking forward to this game.. and I didn't even realize it came out already. They shouldn't have rushed it.
Christ, stop bashing Carolyn NOW! She's brave to confront you tossers everytime. We know it by now, and she's a good reviewer. Btw, game looks awfull to me!
