Wish there were more games like this!!!!

They really did there homework on this. The role playing is phenomenal in a depth you can only touch in an interactive novel. The writing is pretty good, there is an over abundance of replay value and there are always lots of ways to play.

It is extremely well done how all of the stats are given to just barely prevent you from doing what you want to do causing you to reevaluate your character and rebuild him/her perfectly.

Personally I would have liked to go on a few more random adventures before we went on the main quest line. I think Petra's story was pretty short I just visited the town threw holy water on the vampire and that was all she wrote.

Characterization could have been a little bit better with some of the other people but the game is majorly about characterizing yourself anyways.

It is like a puzzle trying to create the best hero possible. I believe thieves and rangers are best equipped for this considering how important gold/agility/devices are for getting the magical items. But other ways of playing such as mages do receive good perks as well.


Overrated and short!

This is the first review I’ve ever written for a game out of my 9 years of gaming experience which emphasizes just how much this game disappointed me. This game is overrated. How did this game get a 4.8 rating? I’ve played 12 games by Hosted Games and the price to length ratio of this one is not worth it. I made it through the game in about 3 or 4 hours and I’m not the fastest reader. I’ve played through the game 3 times and I’ve been disappointed every time. I don’t know if I’m playing it wrong or something but bad things always happen and my character always loses in battle. Each time I played through I used a different class and went about things a different way correlating to my character’s class but I keep getting the same results. Also the stat system is terrible. You have to have very high stats in a certain area just to pass a simple check. I tried to be a spell sword in my first play through but learned that you can really only focus on one class. Also the reviews of the third game are bad meaning you won’t get a satisfying end to this series. If you’re looking for a game to get skip this one and get the “Samurai of Hyuga” series. That series is my favorite out of all the games I’ve played by “Hosted Games”.

Very good! I like that they're still updating it even after all this time! Does get a little tedious at times, but its overall pretty fun. I don't know what that one person meant by the boss being difficult to beat as I've beaten them before. My suggestion, for that person and everyone else having difficulty, is to try a different class, i.e. Bard, thief, hunter, priest, etc. Also, if you're trying to be on good terms with your entire party, I find it easier to *Spoiler Alert* choose the poor boy/girl rather than rich boy/girl at the beginning, especially if you choose to romance them. Then they can be the person you have to anger every now and then instead of angering the grumpy mage even more. Anyways, back to the review. I also like how I can choose the gender of not just my character, the characters that are in my party as well. It's unique to the choice of games and hosted games apps!
