    This game was really disapointing. From the 70% rating that I saw everywhere I took the 30 bucks price as apropriate. But it's not. The randomly generated levels and missions are as repetitive as they could be - the gameplay is ultimately boring. Even though there are 4 characters to chose from, with a set of different weapons, you'll end up playing the same style for 10 hours. This game was really disapointing.

If you want to play a successor to Diablo II, get Sacred. If you want Fallout in realtime, get Fallout Tactics. This one is a waste of time and money. Expand

    AWFUL. CRAP. GARBAGE. Anyone who rates this over 5 works for marketing for this company. Do not waste your time, let alone your money or you'll end up with carpel tunnel from click click click click click non stop. There's a poor excuse for a plot, and no matter what you say to NPC's, they all react the same. The game is disgustingly linear. Two plus's, the graphicsAWFUL. CRAP. GARBAGE.

Huge negatives - the gameplay stinks, the control is garbage, the AI is nonexistent and your character gets stuck. Expand

    This game has a lot of promise, but falls short on a couple of issues. It's awfully repetitive and the worst voice acting I've ever heard. But you just might enjoy the Diablo-in-a-future-setting gameplay... for a while.

  1. It's a fairly simple and repetitive action RPG experience that's rough around the edges, yet it's not without a certain homegrown charm that should appeal to fans of the genre who don't expect too much.
  2. While Restricted Area has some bright spots in terms of innovated ideas, you just can’t help but get that old, been there done that feeling while you are playing. The lack of any real plot will not help matters much more.
  3. The game is simple and easy to play, the campaign is short (maybe 10-15 hours) but you can play it multiple times, and developing characters is fun. But the game is also a little sloppy.
