Summary

Yuck.

The Good

I have to admit the cinematic sequences in this game are quite good, but that does not make for a good game. The graphics are reasonable and the music is OK as well.

The Bad

An underdeveloped plot does not add much to this game. The game engine is, like most Monolith's games, truly horrible - slow, bad looking, jumpy and full of bugs. The sound effects simply suck, everything looks dull and non-dynamic and the gameplay really stinks. In short, nothing to love here.

The Bottom Line

A really mediocre RPG I threw away after 15 minutes. Stay away from it - it's the antithesis of Diablo.
