$2.99 price, got the whole shabang (original three games included)! This is the first time I've played this much talked about game and years after its release I am very impressed with the refreshing take on the beloved RPG genre. Outstanding characters, superb voice acting, memorable NPCs and moments. The first town's blacksmith makes for a believable no-nonsense arms dealer and left a lasting impression on me. In the second town, the blacksmith is not another clone of the first. This is just an example of the uniqueness this game offers. The controls and combat can be sloppy at times but my thumb just might be in the way. Making money is easy and playing a bard for combat adds to the hack and slash adventure. Maps are simple Diablo-Esque, and narration/quests seem to break the monotony. This is the kind of game where I loathe being the protagonist because he's that kind of scoundrel, the kind where you want to dislike the guy who is the "hero" Great game!
The game itself is wonderful, one of the best I've ever played. But the save errors are awful. I'd made it as far as East Dounby but when my device died and didn't save, the data from the save book was corrupted like it usually is, and I've lost my game. Please fix those save errors!
Update: it looks like the saves work fine as long as Autosave is turned off. Still, the corruption errors are irritating and anybody who has Autosave on may lose their save data like me. At the very least, please make it save to multiple slots please.
This is a great game. I've never played the original, but I did play it on the Xbox and it's just how I remember the game being. Well worth the money. The dialogue is witty and makes you want to know what else is in store. The NPCs have a are fun to interact with and it seems that no two are alike. My only problem is (and I hate to admit it) that the in-app purchases do not work. The error message of Cannot Connect to iTunes Store is all I get.
