    The real enjoyment came when mixing up the two elements of conversation and combat. The way that the game allows you to make some really difficult choices in how you go about on the island give a real feeling of importance.

    Greedfall has managed to take me back in time to an era for the RPG that I didn’t realise I missed so much.

    GreedFall slaps together a beautiful map, complex quests, good decision making, an in-depth setting and a really cool storyline with good character building. There are some technical issues and a surprisingly dull beginning - don't let them discourage you.

    With an inspired art direction and a rich universe, GreedFall is a quality RPG with rich and engaging content. However, it's not free of defects, especially in its production, animation, and graphics. We also lament a freedom restricted by invisible walls and a lack of varied movement (such as jumping or swimming), as well as battles that could have been more intense. However, all this fails to dampen the pleasure we had in travelling in search of secrets, or in constantly showing diplomacy to satisfy each party.

    GreedFall is the best game made by Spiders yet and a worthy RPG in its own right. While definitely not without faults in some areas, it delivers great writing, arguably the most refreshing setting seen recently in a fantasy game, and solid combat.

    GreedFall has some of the most compelling characters and storylines so far this year. Unfortunately, they're buried by dated technology and a serious lack of polish.

    Because Greedfall is so cavalier about its colonialist themes, and because it plays it safe by sticking so closely to the template of open-world RPGs, it doesn't really feel revelatory in any way. Instead, it's content to be just another digital playground--just another world filled with magic, riches, secrets, and monsters for players to shoot and loot at will. I did have fun when I got lost in its familiar RPG loop, but its lack of nuance or innovation prevents it from being truly remarkable.

    One of those games that just sucked me in and I played for, more or less, four days straight. I loved absolutely every moment of it. UnlikeOne of those games that just sucked me in and I played for, more or less, four days straight. I loved absolutely every moment of it. Unlike many games I’ve played in the past few years GreedFall is chock full of content from meaningful side quests, unique characters, beautiful environments, and a world that very quickly had me enraptured. While there are a few critiques I would make such as more companion dialogue in and out of combat, more varied magic, and a proper epilogue scene instead of a narrated slideshow, I find that the greatness of the story and its characters definitely make up for it. We’re these few things addressed GreedFall would easily put itself at the top of my list of favourite fantasy RPGs. I only wish I could play it fresh a second time! Expand

    I'll update this when I get further but so far, it runs amazing and looks even better. The facial animations are a little off but personallyI'll update this when I get further but so far, it runs amazing and looks even better. The facial animations are a little off but personally unless it gets to ME:A levels, they aren't bad and they never get that far. EXTREMELY well optimized too. All highest levels and streaming and my CPU and GPU never went above 40% which is fantastic. Expand

    Для начала нужно понимать что игра не ААА класса и не с большим бюджетом. В целом графика-норм, боёвка-сойдет, костомизация-норм, квестыДля начала нужно понимать что игра не ААА класса и не с большим бюджетом. В целом графика-норм, боёвка-сойдет, костомизация-норм, квесты довольно не плохие. Любителям рпг можно и на старте брать, остальным разве что по скидону, изначально хотел 8 поставить, но с учётом что в последнее время очень мало рпг выходит решил докинуть еще 1 балл. Expand
