Ratings and Reviews
Have to say, I'm kind of disappointed...
I could never bring myself to give less than four stars on what, in total, is an impressive trilogy. The creator has put years and so much effort into its creation and I do adore the series...
However, the final chapter has kind of fallen flat for me.... I don't know why I was expecting more character development out of our remaining companions; what I did receive on that front just seemed rushed and unexciting. The ending frustrated me as it seemed that I am having to truly manipulate my character in an unnatural way to receive any sort of satisfying ending (which I have not achieved yet....). All in all, as I said, I loved the series and will probably replay the first two... this one, not so much replay value for me.
Brutal stat checks give this one a steep learning curve
The person who said stats are required to be 70-80+ is being generous. You will see checks for 100 in multiple stats by endgame.
Magic specialists will struggle to pass the endgame gauntlet without a bad ending. Blades/Archery experts should make it through readily if they maxed their key stats, and Unarmed specialists are midway between Blades/Archery and Magic. Stats such as Strength, Agility, and Endurance will contribute greatly to success... and tend to be raised by martial training, not so much by magical training. Oops. Have fun trying to fend off ravenous demons with your sterling grasp of Geography.
That said, IF you can pass the checks, it’s a fun romp with a suitably high-power and high-stakes conclusion. The ‘successful’ endings DO make reference to your choices all throughout the trilogy. It’s just... getting there is hard, and may (?) be impossible for some.
I strongly advise looking up a guide.
Disappointment, Despair, and Lack of Control
The first two games were fairly enjoyable, but it seems like some sadistic, ham-handed writer took the reins for this one.
Sky-high stats and skills are required in an impossibly wide variety. Relationships with companions are insignificant. Corruption and destruction of everything of value are built into the plodding script of events. And the depressing ending appeared arbitrary and pointless. I was a moment away from saving the day when I was yanked inexplicably into a pathetic and hopeless sequence of events. If a failed ending was the result of losing all health, or morale, or poor judgments, that would at least make some sense. It genuinely feels like the writer's main goal was to crush the hopes of the player. Save your time (and money, with the pumped-up price for a pathetically worse game) and avoid this one.
