I just bought this based on Flotsam's review although I usually like to wait much longer after release with any game so that bugs get patched before I--inevitably--encounter them, so I hope all goes well with Eyes of Ara.
I'm playing the game now and so far I like it. I am still way near the beginning. One problem I am having though is reading the notes and books. I have to use a magnifier and it takes away from the atmosphere.
