Have to say, I'm kind of disappointed...
I could never bring myself to give less than four stars on what, in total, is an impressive trilogy. The creator has put years and so much effort into its creation and I do adore the series...
However, the final chapter has kind of fallen flat for me.... I don't know why I was expecting more character development out of our remaining companions; what I did receive on that front just seemed rushed and unexciting. The ending frustrated me as it seemed that I am having to truly manipulate my character in an unnatural way to receive any sort of satisfying ending (which I have not achieved yet....). All in all, as I said, I loved the series and will probably replay the first two... this one, not so much replay value for me.
Disappointment, Despair, and Lack of Control
The first two games were fairly enjoyable, but it seems like some sadistic, ham-handed writer took the reins for this one.
Sky-high stats and skills are required in an impossibly wide variety. Relationships with companions are insignificant. Corruption and destruction of everything of value are built into the plodding script of events. And the depressing ending appeared arbitrary and pointless. I was a moment away from saving the day when I was yanked inexplicably into a pathetic and hopeless sequence of events. If a failed ending was the result of losing all health, or morale, or poor judgments, that would at least make some sense. It genuinely feels like the writer's main goal was to crush the hopes of the player. Save your time (and money, with the pumped-up price for a pathetically worse game) and avoid this one.
Skill checks are far too high. Need all skills and knowledge to be at 75-80+ in order to have a good ending, and you can only gain levels in your skills by selecting correct ones. Meaning you can't level skills that don't pass checks. This makes it so that any skill coming into the game less than a 50-60, you really can't use. Not to mention you need a multitude of the hidden artifacts. If you specialized in something in the first two games, and let other attributes slack a bit, then congratulations, you win a terribly depressing conclusion to an otherwise excellent series.
