It might be prudent to wait as I've heard that it is plagued by a lot of bugs and balance issues.

I tried the demo, and I wasn't too impressed...mainly with the demo, and its abrupt ending. "Look at this uber-strong Cyclops you have to kill! Get ready! Here we go! Aaaand....END!" But it was a pretty cool game. I really liked the melee combat system, the graphics were sweet, and it seemed to meld the two genres to whether well. I didn't enjoy it quite enough to justify $50 though (granted, it's very hard to justify a $50 game for me right now).

I think I'm still going to buy it anyways, but thanks for the heads up, I appreciate it.


Btw, if the game is out, why aren't there any reviews on major gaming sites for it yet?

I tried the Demo, but the thing crashed every four or five minutes on my machine. Only game, or even demo, that I've ever had do that.

Most likely people from the closed beta and people that have pirated it.

I made a thread about this, specifically the demo. Merge please Miss M.


Probably wont be buying this now I'm poor and have to buy my own food though.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I hear a lot of crap about the bugs and glitches, kinda putting off my purchase.

I'm looking at the game but wondering why it's rated M. Any advice along those lines?

Cuz some games are rated very inaccurately...

"Rated Mature: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Language, Paticial Nudity"

I'm going to have to be real convincing if I'm going to get this game, my dad's a real scrooge.

(Blood and violence is fine, he let's me play Doom 3)

One more question... can you sneak into some random townpersons house at night and assassinate them?

Cause I really want to do that!

You can't do it as much in Oblivion because of those stupid phychic guards, and just about every named NPC is used somewhere.

Read some reviews man.  It's not an RPG, it's an action game.  You can't free roam.
