Hahhahaa...Arkane should have stayed on "doing crpgs for obscure Ultima Underworld fanboys"-thing. They should have....ah heck, who am I kidding, this just makes me sad.

 

I mean, I don't exactly trust reviewers, but if the grade really is that low, there's gotta be some truth to the review. It's not IGN either.

Meh, I liked the videos... looked like it could be a good fantasy action game or something. But I didn't like the demo much at all. There were some things I liked, but over all; no.

 

Probably due to bad performance and combat that didn't suit me much at all.

His complaints about the combat seem idiotic. Other than that, the guy's probably right.

Bargain bin. :)

Doesn't make it suck less, but makes the suckage all the cheaper. :lol:

 

I was going to say something inappropriate and definitely not PG-13, but I decided against it.

Remind me never to go egg shopping with you  :lol:

I always tell hubby I accidentally dropped them...

 

On topic, that's too bad about the game, if true. Another game that might've been fun to waste my brain away on, that's apparently not. A fantasy-world FPS might be something that would get me more into FPS. Draken was sorta like a 3rd person action fantasy, but ...

How positive? I mean, the one above wasn't horribly negative in the written text, really. Beyond the bugs, it just sounded like they thought it was uninspired and mediocore...not terrible. Which could be said of many games. But since I'm not too into combat-action type games, mediocore may as well be terrible. It'd have to really shine for me to get into it. :lol:

I still want to play this...guess I'll get it when it's cheaper and the bugs are fixed.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

Hmm...that article made me realize I mispelled mediocre. Twice. hah! Yes, my brains are leaking out my ears more every day!

 

That review is definitely much better - he didn't make mention of any major bugs, either, so perhaps it's not hopelessly riddled. I don't like the sound of "such elongated loading times", tho. That's ok for a strategy-mission campaign type game, but an action game, it stinks. Hmm.

Thanks for that, Meta.

 

I guess I was hoping it'd be action-rpg like, with a shooter-style flavor. We'll see.
