Summary

Good but why bother.....

The Good

The vast selection of items, monsters, spells and combat mechanics.

The Bad

The storyline is pretty bad, actually there is no storyline. Also the game is simply way too difficult and time-consuming.

The Bottom Line

A vast world to explore with lots of weapons, equipment, magic items, spells and monsters to fight make this a somewhat enjoyable game, but finishing the game is a different matter. The game and storyline (if you can call it that) is very hard to figure out and finish, you will literally walk around not knowing what to do. You will spend at least 40-60 hours leveling up your party and only then will you actually begin your main quest to discover the Inner Sanctum. Hmmm…this doesn't sound like too much fun. You will need incredible patience for this one.
