I'll let you guys know what it's like in a day or two.
Today the devs gave us another nice update. Single player mode seems to be doing great now, so I got into the game for a while.
Simple, straight-forward game play. The inventory and skills/perks are pretty easy to understand. Guns, swords, magic. You can hover the cursor over items in inventory to get info on them, including what +'s or -'s to stats will happen if equipped.
The dialogue with my ghost lady is fun. Graphics are good. The game is running smoothly on my system. I like it. The look of the game reminds me of Sacred or maybe Divine Divinity. Finely drawn detail. More of a top-down view.
It's a "light" play, meaning even though there's action and enough things to keep me busy, the story isn't as complex and heavy as, say, Skyrim. I love all the choices and deep storyline of games like Skyrim, but I also like a diversion now and then. Just something fun.
One negative I will share though. It only saves on exit. There is no way to make your own saves. That makes me nervous! I'm a fanatic about saving my progress. BUT the devs did share a secret. If you drop an item out of inventory and then pick it up, the game will save! Guess who's going to be dropping and snatching up items along the trail?
