So.. I'm sitting here by my computer chilling, drinking some rom + coke and playing PoE (20 hours in). It's 4.00 am in the morning in Denmark..
This game is outstanding!
I just want to thank Obsidian for creating such an exiting RPG. And to IGN and other critics whom's thoughts on this games graphic design sounds something like "outdated, old, 'not-3d'... - just stop..
- The Art work (scroll-cut-scenes-stuff) is simple and well done
- Interface UI is superb
- The 2D level design merged with 3D elements is beautiful.
Actually the graphic and atmosphere is a lot better than in many top-down-3D RPGs.
With so many games these days, everything seems the same..... PoE is the first games in years that I feel I actually WANT to keep playing.
It's an indescribable feeling to suddenly feel so interested in a single-player-game again, like I did when I was a kid.
I thought that was impossible, guess I was wrong
Thx Obsidian, amazing work!
