Having purchased this game on my I phone I was delighted to see it arrive on Android, I felt a review necessary as it has none yet, I paid £4.99 for this on the app store and then again on the play store so at just under 2 pounds it is an absolute steal, this game is fantastic a great fantasy rpg well worthy of anyone's money with hours of enjoyment and not a heavy reliability on in app purchases you can play it on and on and on, can't recommend enough this along with order and chaos gives my s3 a really strong handheld gaming experience graphics are beautiful and plot is well written and some parts of the narrative are really funny! Just buy it if rate it 6 stars if I could

Fable meets skyrim, humorous dialogue with good graphics and a lot of choices that add depths to the experience, about an hour into so far but only getting better

Been playing for about an hour now and enjoying this game very much. I'm not usually a fan of touch screen controls on games but so far I've found the controls on this game easy to use and non intrusive as far as having joypads etc all over the screen.
The graphics are ok, althought I opted for the High quality version after the initial set up and was slighty dissapointed to find there is a 3.5gig download to play the game.
Overall I'd definatly recomend this game to any fantasy rpg fan

Totally new to this game/franchise and purchased this off the back of the high review ratings.
Well, it is addictive. Great pick up and play and from the 'beer song' early on I knew this would be fun.
Expect to buy a couple of in game extra's but for a couple of pounds it's corking value.

At last, a full sized RPG for the kindle fire hd, and an excellent one at that. I didn't realise until after I had purchased it that it is actually a port from the PS2 and XBOX version from a number of years ago. I was concerned that maybe the console controls would not have transferred well to the touch screen, making the game difficult to complete. But I need not have worried, the game plays well all the way through and having just completed it I can say that it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. There's not many
places that you can get 17 hours entertainment for a couple of quid. If you have even the slightest interest in the action RPG genre then buy this, you won't regret it.

I downloaded this as it was in Amazon as part of the free giveaway thing. It says "Size: 23.9MB" in the description. This is very misleading as you have to download another 1.8 GIGABYTES of files to PLAY the game.

I do not have that to spare, so game removed.

Please Amazon, do not let these companies advertise that their game is this size, when it is only the installer programme, and the game is much, much bigger.
