    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.

    Greedfall is the clearly the best game from Spiders to date with a good freedom given to the player, and a great lore. There are a few hiccups here and there, mainly due to the limited budget, but if you're ready to close your eyes, it's still a nice RPG.

    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.

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 played every spider game I could get my hands on over the summer in preparation for this games release and I can say this is my favourite byI played every spider game I could get my hands on over the summer in preparation for this games release and I can say this is my favourite by far. This little developer have really pulled out all the stops with this lovely little rpg made on a shoestring budget,

    I loved that you can play as male or female. I loved the little romances you could have with your companions. I liked greatly the styles, details and fabrics of the armours and weapons. I wasnt keen on the hairstyles but I understand the reason why they are like that (limited budget) I enjoyed greatly the story and being able to play it as I liked, side quests weren't completely locked into main quests and I was able to complete most side quests before advancing the main quest on my first play through, on my second play-through I advanced the main quest first and it felt like a very different experience. That was nice and well done.

    Im delighted that modders have been able to work on this game so thats another huge plus for me as that gives me another reason to keep going back to it which gives me so much more bang for my buck and enjoyment of course.

    I felt the voice acting was good, it took a while to get used to the natives strange accents, but I am now.

    I would have preferred to be able to fast travel from anywhere to camps or city locations as sometimes the running got a bit tedious. I also would like to see a wee mirror of transformation in the player house/camps so my lady could change her hair or eye colour. But I know that the budget put constraints on cosmetic extra's like that.

    The fighting was fine. I only used magic skills and I enjoyed that on easy. I didn't try on harder settings as I play for story and rpg elements. I enjoyed the crafting and upgrading abilities. Would have liked a few more talent points as I leveled but that wasn't a deal breaker.

    The environments were nice, linear but still with some exploring. Im not mad on too much exploration. It was a nice mix in this game. Spaces felt open but weren't too open for my comfort.

    Overall for this game I would give it an 8.5-9 out of 10. So thrilled there are people out there prepared to make games like this. Im thrilled to have this game in my library and will revisit it over and over again. For me this game was worth every penny I paid and I wish spiders staff and management the very best in their future endeavors.

    I'm split between 6.5 and 7 for this game.

    Greedfall is not without its flaws but it stands out as one of the more interesting RPGs to have released in recent memory. For a AA studio that is. Those who compare it to old Bioware games are not far off the mark – the story doesn't re-invent the wheel but it is interesting enough to keep you going and there are different paths and choices you can take during quests. Your decisions bear consequences but nothing immediately obvious or extraordinaire. There are 3 different skill trees (Warrior, Technical, Magic) – Warrior is straightforward, Technical is flashy and Magic is both underwhelming and over-powered.

    The game’s weakest points lie in its combat, animations, vast yet empty world, over-used assets and an ending that was obviously rushed. Facial animations leave a lot to be desired and can be almost compared to ME:A, but it’s not critical if you can overlook such things. I, myself, grew used to them after a while. The world is, too large for what it offers, a poor design choice in all honesty, since a more condensed but meaningful experience could have proven more fruitful in the long run.

    If you’re a detail-oriented player you will notice oddly identical interiors and clones everywhere, this is particularly noticeable when you visit the governors’ manors in each town. Last but not least – the ending. It felt like the devs poured a lot of effort into the beginning and mid sections of the game only to realize they were running out of time and resources to do everything they wanted to. The ending is abrupt, followed by a slideshow depicting your choices and the consequences thereof.

    Overall, it’s not the kind of game that I'd play a second time but I did enjoy my time with it. I consider it Spiders' best title yet. I would play a sequel.

    PS: There is romance in the game, including gay options, but don’t expect it to be meaningful and deep. Although modding is a thing for Greedfall, it's not officially supported since the devs never released the tools for it, nor did they plan to. What exists and can be done, is limited.
