Ok first of all, this is not an oblivion clone. Like oblivion it is a first person fantasy game, and like oblivion you can choose different character classes but thats about it. This has more in common with halo than oblivion.
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.

I was a big fan of the early Might & Magic PC games in the nineties, and was looking forward to this to fill the gap left after finishing Oblivion.

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.

This game is a little different from the PC version there are sections in it that didnt make it to the PC version for some reason, these sections add extra bits to the game. The combat is fun and quite well thought out you can approach the combat how you see fit and if you wanted you can try something different, as an example on the stairs by the cliff using ice arrows and watching the orcs slide off was quite amusing or using stealth to get past someone silently is very refreshing especially in some games where characters notice you no matter where you are :)

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.

This is a quick review just to tell you to discard the bad reviews if this game appeals to you. If you like this sort of genre (not RPG) i mean the fantasy type free roaming genre then you will like this game. However it will not blow you away, perhaps if released earlier before major titles like Oblivion it would have made a better impression. The graphics are not bad they are most definitely not amazing but do serve their purpose, i haven't played the PC version of this game but i'm surprised they have not improved the graphics because if they did it would make this game that much nicer!
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!

The game is ridiculous. SO MANY BUGS!!!! On one occasion I jumped off a small ledge and went through the ground into the black nothingness of gaming limbo! I didn't have any other saves so I had to START THE GAME AGAIN! Ropes are a nightmare. On one rope I got stuck and there was no way off so I had to reload a save an hour before! On another rope it freaked out and started flying about in all directions. On ANOTHER occasion there was a bug and no enemies spawned and I couldn't progress. I had to jump off a ledge to fix it. I could go on.
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.

Ok I had this game for about a year and never got past the second chapter because i got bored. But today I thought I would give it a proper go to justify paying for it. I was surprised that I actually found myself enjoying the experience, the gameplay is linear though which I found to be rather dissapointing. However I did enjoy playing especially the fighting which while very simple at these early stages rewards you with some rather funny deaths, for example kicking a guard down some stairs into a fire. I would actually pay for a game where all you do is kick people the way this game does it. The one thing that utterly destroyed the game (litterally since I threw it), is that during chapter 4 I beleive, a chase over rooftops, it seems to be going well, but I wished I was back to sword swinging and roaming. Proceeding along with clunky movement through windows which seem to be covered in velcro which you continuanly stick to, I make it to a point which says checkpoint just a split second before the demon I am chasing escapes causing a restart from checkpoint....oh dear. So now I restart and have less than 1 second to catch this demon, and since I never saved the game prior to this I wasted over an hour of my life on nothing. The only thing I could do is restart the entire single player campaign from the beginning, this isnt happening. So the experience ended with me annoyingly putting the game back in its case then throwing it across the room...never to be used again. I just cannot for the life of me understand how they could design a game which had that obvious shockingly bad flaw which renders your entire play through useless. 2/10.
