    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.

    Overall, I enjoyed my time playing GreedFall immensely. The setting and lore of the world helped to cement me deep into everything. If you're looking for an in-depth RPG that lets you make choices in a seldom seen world with both muskets and magic, then GreedFall is right up your alley.

    The best thing about GreedFall is that intangible thing called “flow”: it’s easy to get hooked up and just play it, even though the game doesn’t offer nuanced mechanics or meticulously detailed world. [Issue#241, p.52]

    Greedfall is a huge step forward for Spiders, offering improvements on all levels when compared to their past games. It does fall victim of overreaching with a small budget, having an annoying amount of backtracking and of reused enemies and assets, but it is still an entertaining WRPG in a very interesting setting, full of intrigue and suspense.

    While it's true that GreedFall has some serious problems with variety and bizarrely re-used assets, the story is great and the combat and game systems are quite good. Anyone willing to look past its problems and dig into the narrative will likely have a good time with it.

    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.

    Not the best RPG that I've ever played, but there were only a handful of better ones. I really enjoy combat, crafting system and islandNot the best RPG that I've ever played, but there were only a handful of better ones. I really enjoy combat, crafting system and island exploration. But the most important thing for me was obviously story writing and this is where GreedFall shines. Main story and companion quests are in my opinion always very good and enjoyable. Side-quests are a bit of hit or miss, some are unimpressive but others were simply amazing. Enemies variety is not the best and some assets are clearly overused but those things pale in comparison with a great story that GreedFall tells. I hope that Spiders will continue to create games in this universe, Expand

It talksI think some will regard Greedfall as a dull open world RPG but in truth is has it's good and bad sides. The story is quite amazing. It talks about racism, intolerance and political manipulations. Daunting and difficult subjects that older peoples might appreciate. Yes, there are many repeating dialogues. I am legate DeSardet will be burned into your brain. The graphics are mixed result. Even at high settings, some textures stays fuzzy or on low. Some minors performances issues here and there, but overall the result is pretty good. The sounds are fun but the soundtrack isn't something to brag about. The combat is precise but I found the difference between easy to normal to be quite high. At a certain point (3/4 of the game), weapons and armor upgrades are useless. The skill tree is something of a frustration. It's too slow to get the skills. Exploration is fun but the fast traveling system is very limiting. They are fix points on the map, and not always practical. Some area have long spaces with nothing to do. i give it 82%. I really enjoy it because of the story. It's a good RPG and I hope this new team can make another one. Expand

    Played it for like 20 minutes and decided that I can't be bothered with how complicated and clunky combat is. Well that on top of how averagePlayed it for like 20 minutes and decided that I can't be bothered with how complicated and clunky combat is. Well that on top of how average the game is, because I would have put up with the crappy combat controls on PC if the game was blowing me away.

    Perhaps the experience is better with a controller but I'm a PC pleb who isn't using one nor intends to.
