  1. Comes close to achieving the goal of combining a great offline quest with a great online experience. The most obvious missing piece: a compelling story. Second would be a full-fledged quest (your journey is mission-based, therefore eliminating some of the freedom that comes with an RPG). Third, End of Darkness can be repetitive at times.

    I don't know what anyone see's in this poorly made game. The graphics are only average at best, the animation for charecters spells I don't know what anyone see's in this poorly made game. The graphics are only average at best, the animation for charecters spells and what not are terrible. And the combat system blows! If this game was for a lower system I'd think more highly of the game. Full Review »
