Average User Score: 7.3Feb 9, 2014This game is controversial for many fans, but I really enjoyed it and certainly would recommend you to play it. Let me tell you why:
It is classical dungeon crawler
There are many nice references to older games
The story is interesting with nice ending
Classical RPG style of skills
Lot of lore, especially books
Uplay - unnecessary DRM
un-optimized game engine (Unity)
16:10 resolution are not supported
as of 9.2.2014 there is many of un-repaired bugs
there is still need for some balancing
it is smaller game than previous titles
only some dialogs are dubbed
not all quests are accessible in single play-through
smaller number of skills and spells than previous titles (MM6-8)
game lacks in auto-gathering information - like teachers, or where key characters are.
share inventory for all characters (very small)
You can have only 2 NPCs accompanying your part (quest NPC counts into that limit)
You can´t escape fight, you have to reload.
You won´t get full manual with game
Game is square movement type in style of dungeon master
Game is set in Ashan world.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.0Aug 2, 2013Here comes new Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014. Should we be in awe and say "yay!"? I think not. The only new thing that came this year is draft play called sealed campaign. Other mods includes include classic campaign through planes, two-headed giant and custom game. If you compare this with MtG: DotP 2013, you find missing planechase mode. In the multiplayer there is high number cheating players thanks to open deck creation that came thanks to sealed campaign.
In short MtG DotP 2014 brings on plus side this years card editions, draft play and deck building and is better optimized for mouse and keyboard.
On cons side it´s missing planechase mode, has some unwelcome UI changes, and there is cheating in multiplayer.
If that´s enough for you to buy the game is up to you.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.4Aug 2, 2013Despite lack of funds (many of funds raised on kickstarter was used on gifts) its very good game, that brings back unique RPG mixing science and magic in dark futuristic setting. It is simplified old school tactical RPG, with some bugs (at the time release). True fans of Shadowrun might disappoint lack of Astral plane, unlimited ammo, no weariness after casting spell (instead a cooldown time is used). Tactical minded player might miss full camera rotation option, as game is only pseudo-3D.
Generals minus is fully automatic save points system.
Despite all cons the cons, the game is fun¨to play, music is very good and community is cooking new adventures. Story of Dead man¨s switch is intriguing with few twists and fits well into Shadowrun universe.
Playing through this game I would highly recommend. It´s tactician must have!!… Expand
