    Although its visual novel/dating sim nature may put off those who prefer a little more exploration in their RPGs, Loren is an enjoyable high-fantasy epic with some great artwork, memorable characters and a fun, if at times cliched story.

    Like a 2d version of dragon age, but better written, with more developed and interesting characters, a sense of humour, and less overblown.Like a 2d version of dragon age, but better written, with more developed and interesting characters, a sense of humour, and less overblown. The only criticism i would have is that i think the team could have ditched the sub-Tolkien fantasy memes that the game retains (orcs, elves etc). I think they definitely have the imagination to come up with a world completely of their own. Expand

    The game that made me realize that not all visual novels are absolute garbage that only weebs play.

    The game that made me realize that not all visual novels are absolute garbage that only weebs play.

    It's surprising, because other games Winter Wolves have made (looking at you, Planet Stronghold) are absolute trash.

    Lots of choices, neat and simple combat, and the point and choose options are spread out with the combat enough so that it doesn't just feel like a choose your own adventure novel.

    Very satisfying.

    I'd give it a 10, but I couldn't romance the hot succubus and that still angers me.

For $14.99 or so, I would have given it an 8 or a 9. Wait for a sale and you'll definitely get your money's worth. Expand

    A nice little indie game with a decent storyline and some charming Anime style graphics. If you like ogling scantily clad Anime characters,A nice little indie game with a decent storyline and some charming Anime style graphics. If you like ogling scantily clad Anime characters, this will be right up your alley. Unfortunately the game is rather short (it probably took me around 20 - 25 hours or so to finish), there are no animated graphics or proper cut scenes in it and there is little in the way of exploration. You get a quest, you go straight to the relevant destination on your map, it shows you a graphic of the room you are currently in, you have a couple of fights, and that's it - quest done. This is basically an interactive story with a few turn-based fights, a bit of shopping at merchants for new gear, a lot of text to read and that's about it. The quality of the writing is not bad but the text is a bit infantile in places and there are a number of grammatical errors. I also found the interface a bit tedious when shopping at merchants and comparing what they had in stock with what my characters were carrying when I wanted to upgrade their gear. All characters have 2 sets of skills which can be raised through 4 levels. For mage characters, the skills are very similar and could have been more varied - only the damage type varies (eg. 300% x your normal damage to one enemy but with fire or ice or earth etc).

    MINOR SPOILER - if you have the Castle of N'Mar expansion, you can get a companion named Chambara who is a necromancer with the ability to change her form (when you meet her), but nowhere is this ability reflected in any of her skill trees! Weird.

    You can also have in-game straight or gay romances (a la Bioware) and the nice thing is, when you finish the game, it gives you the option to replay using a cheat mode, so you can quickly get through the story if you want to experience alternative outcomes. All achievements are tracked and logged via nicely illustrated cards which appear on your achievements list.

    I agree though with the other reviewer that the game would have merited a higher score had it been pitched more at the budget end of the market.
