The RPG elements are limited, being less complex than say marvel ultimate alliance, I understand it is a stripped down version of the PC game which is more rpg based. quite why they felt the need to simplify it is beyond me, oblivion works wonders so why couldn't this.
The graphics aren't really what you expect from a 360 game either, there are okay, and the design is nice but they seem unpolished compared to most 360 games.
So what about the importnt bit, is it fun? YES actually the combat is a little repetitive but then isn't shooting a bit samey too? The fifferent classes add replay value as they are genuinely different to play. the level design is often very clever making you stop and think rather than charging in swords flashing. Much like half life 2, which uses the same game engine this is cinematic action, rather than the story being told by cut scenes it is told around you.
One of the weak spots of the game is that it uses the half life engine and seems to have inherited the same flaws as the 360 version of that. the control, you are regularly clipping edges and they often feel a little sluggish. shame, very nearly a great game instead we get a good fantasy action romp.
Unfortunately this meant I was badly disappointed. The things I love in an RPG are missing. There's no choice in terms of your race, sex, characteristics and appearance. There's not the same level of wandering 'round, talking and exploring. The side quests aren't much to talk about. If there's a map I haven't found it. The game is very linear. The treasure, equipment, spells and alchemy etc are disappointing...
If this had come out a couple of years ago I would have enjoyed it. Unfortunately, since Oblivion, I really think subsequent games should be as good, if not better.
Some of the things have completely changed from the PC version there is a huge worm in one of the sections where the PC version has dragon like creature IIRC.
Apart from that its a great game I would recommend it to anyone and for the low price you can get it these days you cant go wrong.
Replay value is good, you have four classes to choose from: Warrior, Archer, Mage and Assassin. I have only tried the Mage and Warrior classes but i will once i have completed it, go back and play the others. I did think the attack animations of the Staff (mage)and Sword (warrior) limited, something which could and should have been improved since the PC release.
Over all if you like the genre by all means get this game, however do not expect a RPG or Gears of War graphical experience. But the game is enjoyable non the less!
2 stars just for it being somewhat fun when the bugs don't ruin it - fun enough for me to complete it but I wouldn't recommend anyone else buying it.
