Oldschool gamer review

Gotta give it a 5/5. the price yesterday was 10 USD, today its like 3 bucks, not sure why..... anyhow Bastion (other game these guys developed) was very well done but they stuck to a classic formula, if you play it, you will likely feel like you have already played the game before. This game isnt better than Bastion because of how fun it is (Bastion might be more enjoyable for many) - it's better (to me) because the developers attempted at novelty, new mechanics, gameplay ive never experienced, a talking sword, a hero who is a singer (???) it's not another one of those games where u feel like you've already played it. Hopefully this game becomes more challenging and tactical though... either way. Novelty earns 5 stars with the number of copycat games out there.

Great Mechanics

So, this game is great. The story so good, the sound track is good, but most of all, the gameplay is amazing. It's nothing like I've ever seen before. It's a bit hard to describe, to do actions you take a turn where you plan your movements and attacks, but after this turn takes places, there a short period where you can't attack and have to try to survive in real time. It's super weird. The only problem is, and this might be a turn off for some people, when you're out of your turns you are constantly getting hit. When I say constantly I mean in some of the fights you are getting hit through the entire thing. Other than that it's great.

Not what I'd hoped.

The game is okay, but after reading all the reviews I had great expectations.

The storyline is choppy and has no real development. You have a voice but with no attachment to it. There's no build-up to the end, nor a real climax.

The game looks great, as will any produced by a company coming off of a large success, but lacks depth.
The raspy voice constantly says things that mean nothing to me, and has the "trying too hard" feel.

Don't get me wrong, it's an alright game, but you're not getting any real depth with it whatsoever. The atmosphere creates the illusion of depth, but there isn't much.

It's a short game and crashes a lot too.

Honestly, I think only the few who absolutely loved this game rated it. I believe everyone else was perfect you okay with deleting it after beating it, especially to free up the 2.5 gigs of 90% audio.

I'm not saying don't buy it, I'm simply saying if I hadn't gotten it for the 2-3 dollar special a few weeks ago, I'd be a bit more aggressive and detailed in this review.

Three stars simply because I appreciate the effort.
