This game has all you could ask for and more. Great storytelling. Characters you care for and are a joy to interact with. Exciting combat. Combat is realtime pausable and challenging with an on the fly difficulty level. Even the graphics are good contrary to what other would say. Will it tax your 1000 dollar video card, no. But the backdrops are gorgeous, hand painted and atmospheric. Definitely a 15 out of 10 and a must buy. Buy it. You won't regret it and you will be helping to insure we get more great games like this instead of button mashing game of the years..
