    this is the kinda game that you wait a few months (hell even a year) for the price to come down, at least by that time the game will have patches and updates to fix all its down falls and actually be worth the 20$ you pay for it....maybe.

    Well... Its been done before, but It is well done for single player play. Personally would rather play World of War Craft (I'm not fond of the game).

    There are few games that drive me off in less than an hour. Silverfall is one of those few. Graphically, Silverfall is very unimpressive. There 'may' be better graphics underneath the outlining, but Monte Cristo liked their outlining VERY much (And no, it does NOT look like you cell shaded it).

Graphically, Silverfall is very unimpressive. There 'may' be better graphics underneath the outlining, but Monte Cristo liked their outlining VERY much (And no, it does NOT look like you cell shaded it). Silverfall makes 'brilliant' use of 3D models, they put them in, and do nothing else. Now it can be argued that without 3D Models the game would take up four times more drive space... but Silverfall's usage of 3D models is basically just to state "we did it". Camera controls are all but non-existant, and even if you 'zoom' in to a 3rd person perspective (opposed to the overhead perpective) the gameplay becomes much harder, and the graphics look worse. Gameplay feels like it GREATLY favors one character over another. This is okay in a 'select class' game, but in a game that has you as a free class... it really hurts you in the end run. Then you have targeting issues, and even just 'seeing' the enemies you're fighting. Repeatedly clicking is doable, but clicking tiny enemies is rather hard... and if you can't really see the thing you're clicking... well. Choosing between playing silverfall, and just reinstalling + playing diablo. I choose diablo. Expand

    Has/had great potential, mix of terrible, lag, irritating gameplay, poor camera, poor save game structure and lack of optimization really detracts from the game. I keep trying to go back and play, but exit after 20 minutes out of sheer frustration.

    Silverfall is not particularly a bad game, it just is not a groundbreaking game in a genre that has had several heavyweights that still shine to this very day. The game has a handful of irritating bugs that you would typically never see in other games, and ultimately hurts the final product. There is still plenty of enjoyment to be found with Silverfall though.
  2. Frequent levelling and plentiful and varied loot give Silverfall a definite momentum; the blend of worlds and the inventiveness of some of the creatures give it a modicum of novelty. This is an easy game to get swept along by, but, largely because of those serried foes, it's also an easy game to walk away from. [Apr 2007, p.82]

    An unexpectedly charming diversion of a game, but one that ultimatey fails to deliver on its early promise. A shame, really. [Apr 2007, p.62]
