User Reviews

An amazing, powerful game combining a strategy level and first-person roleplaying quests, unfortunately ahead of its time and crippled by bugs. Windows weregamer (157)
An ambitious effort that attempts to be a lot of everything but ends up being much of nothing. Windows Zen Gamer (72)
