I don't think it will ever get better than this game...
The story was great. I've never had a pulp novel and video game ever seem to be so seamlessly integrated. The characters that you had in your party interacted with you in ways that promoted the story. Perhaps time has dulled my memories but really I can't remember it getting better than this.
There were some glitches in the game that kept it from running smoothly on my computer. Other than that though I don't remember it being very dull. I would say that the ending made me feel good but I really thought they should have done a sequel to this.
The Bottom Line
The ultimate story based RPG. Something for people that aren't into hack and slash as much as story.
