  1. Suffers from a steep difficulty curve. Blame it on the excessive enemy quotient, the steep cost of healing, and the unwieldy inventory control. [Feb 2002, p.148]

    This is the best game I've ever played. It's really fun and always leaves you wanting more. It's so fun and exciting. I love all of the weapons, side quests, characters, fighting, and vast world. Full Review »

    The best game I ever played. Although there was an unnecessarily large difficulty spike halfway through the game, the overall excellence overshadows it. Full Review »
