  1. Roxor is an IE fanboy stuck in the past, so this utterly negative review isn't surprising really, edgy for the sake of it while clearly trolling in certain parts (worst Obsidian game BS, "not D&D" options, abysmal writing bollocks), Codexian style more or less. That being said....despite the fact that he sounds like a butthurt grognard who was seemingly expecting BG3 which didn't happen, he is absolutely on point regarding various issues this game currently has...atributes, terrible and most of all boring itemization, stronghold being a shell of what it could/should be, talents, engagement, party members AI or lack thereof with major pathfinding problems, buffing (although this also falls under the "subjective" category since some like it as is), crafting, endless dungeon not nearly living up to the hype. Personally i love this game but objectively speaking it needs to be improved in every area mentioned above in order to achieve true greatness, luckily i believe that these improvements are more then doable. He is 100% wrong about writing in my personal opinion, however anything said on the matter is somewhat subjective anyways, some will adore it, some won't, some will find it average, but one thing he nailed is the fact that the writers went to great lengths trying to be overly descriptive, leaving little to player's imagination, and that the lack of Avellone's major contribution shows. All in all, some excellent points in a review which is also filled with loads of crap and is terrible overall when looked at as a whole because he obviously couldn't get over himself.
  2. I agree, pathfinding is a major issue to the point where party members appear to be as dumb as bricks on certain occasions, i'm honestly surprised that this hasn't been addressed yet.
  3. More VO (not full, just more then we currently have) in the upcoming expansion or a sequel would be ok, i would genuinely be fine with that and if done right it would add more overall quality to the game while not costing a fortune, but the current game should remain as is, it's fine, there are bigger problems then VO at the moment.
  4. Smoke some good weed in order for the overall feeling of immersion to skyrocket, and reading won't be an issue at all. And seriously, enough with the voice acting already, i'm glad we've even gotten as much as is currently in the game.
  5. Excellent suggestions. However i am hoping that we won't have to wait for an expansion in order to get much needed Stronghold improvements, they should dedicate one of the future patches (1.6 perhaps?) solely to making this feature better. The stronghold needs to reach the level of NWN2 keep which was really, really good in my opinion.
  6. Ranger class in old IE games was far superior to what we currently have here, which is rather disappointing considering that i love said class.
  7. It's a shame that they weren't able to pull this off, it most certainly wouldn't have made the game worse, quite the opposite actually.
  8. Voice acting is good when it's done by professionals with a certain degree of quality, and those aren't cheap, when it's done by amateurs it's just dreadful, so no.
  9. Generally speaking the attribute system in this game needs a complete overhaul, Sawyer went out of his way trying to reinvent the wheel and came up short.
  10. I was kinda hoping that they would change their attribute design, which is bad quite frankly, and remove magical prowess from might. Also no stronghold improvements makes me sad, hopefully in the near future then...
  11. The point is not that there are critiques about objective elements of the game. The point is “game too easy” “game too hard” “can I haz gamez without battlez plz” “I can’t play this game if I can’t walk” “__________ (insert whatever you want here) breaks my IMMERRRRSHUUNNN” Yes, there are always trolls, on every board of every game in existence, especially in the RPG genre. That being said, i don't even go to threads such are the ones you have mentioned since those very titles reek of BS and my troll sensors start beeping immediately.
