Summary

Great game.

The Good

Well, most everything. The game starts out with you creating a group of adventurers, I don't remember how many you can create, but you can create alot. You then explore in a first person veiw. This veiw has good graphics, for the time. Then you fight, when you find bad guys, from a isemetric veiw. You move around and attack. It works well, even compaired to things like "Balders Gate", mabye even better. Thats basicly all you do. That may not sound like alot, but it is. Theres lots of challenges and things to do.

The Bad

Makeing your figure in battles look the way you want is sorta hard. The use of a code wheel, those things are annoying and this is exactly why.

The Bottom Line

lots of fun. Buy it.
