elegant graphics, gameplay can be awkward
on 16 August 2013
Having broken the back of this game with the original release, i got hold do this value pack for the add-on, and to see what differences there were in the original now that it is called "remastered".
Second point first: no obvious difference. There's still a huge lack of diversity in character faces and all the female NPCs look like they're twelve years old. The combat system is a close clone of the industry standard model so takes no time at all getting used to, however the game is highly unbalanced from an early stage, pitting you at level 6 against a cluster of level 28-ers, that sort of nonsense. Just a bit of bad programming and sloppy attention to detail that hasn't been corrected, you learn to skip the parts that are so oriented and aim for what's possible, which is most of the game. A few original notions, like as vendor that sells counterfeit goods and the assembling of your own side-kick, though trying to get the sidekick's creator to let him out is another blip in the system. Generally acceptable in most respects, spoiled somewhat by not performing as well as was clearly intended, but this shortcoming is well compensated for by the beautiful graphics, up there with the likes of Drakensang at the time of its release.
One other bother: save games from the original don't seem to work in this.
