This game looked and sounded pretty good so I went out and bought it. When it took two ice ages to get to the main screen I knew I was going to be disappointed....
Don't get me wrong, Silverfall is a good game, nice graphics, good old Diablo like hack n slash game play, and an interesting science vs. nature plot premise.
But...and its a big BUT..this game has to be the worst system hog I've ever come across!
I have a top end PC and a stonking graphics card but even on medium settings the game runs like a one legged badger! The pathetic frame rates and constant stuttering are infuriating, especially considering this is a fast paced game!
Trust me when I say you will suffer for it. At some points things run smoothly, but as soon as you heave a sigh of relief and begin to enjoy what is a stunning fantasy world, it turns into a stuttering nightmare that makes you think you've entered a Matrix movie!
Unfortunately, this problem really saps the life out what is actually an above average RPG.
If you have a machine the size of a closet, then go ahead and enjoy! If not...avoid Silverfall and go back to playing Diablo!
