Severly under-rated RPG which didn't get the credit it deserved because of a rushed development cycle!

There's almost nothing as sad as the story of Troika, guys who really wanted to make RPGs and knew how to do it, but who were just getting screwed by the media and by their publishers because they cared about game design and things that matter to real gamers, instead of just caring about screenshot power and big **** or whatever it is that lawyers think makes a game sell.

You have to download the Co8 mod and other patches to get this game to work correctly, but once you've done that, it's a TON of fun. It's like Baldur's gate, except with a WAYYYY better true-turn based combat system and badass 3D graphics. The animations and sound for combat are BRILLIANT, the voice-acting is BADASS (as usual for them) and you simply MUST play this game if you like CRPGs. Note that the difficulty IS very hard with this game, it's very true D&D so you really have to TRY... it's like the opposite of Oblivion in that it doesnt hold your hand at all.

The saddest thing is that no one makes games like this anymore.
