    A solid proposal to any fan of action RPGs. It's not groundbreaking and it takes almost all of its ingredients from other games, but it sure delivers a profound and versatile experience.

    The biggest drawback, probably due to the budget, is the game world itself, which looks too uniform and empty. Often we just run from one point to another as if on rails, fighting in the fun and varied combat system against too light standard opponents to reach the real highlight of the game - the different factions with their stories.

    It has some mechanical shortcomings and the character behaviour could be more realistic-. But nonetheless GreedFall delivers an atmospheric roleplaying experience with an interesting story set in a baroque fantasy world.

    Greedfall has an ambitious story, but it's not backed up by the clearly repeated environments, simple combat and dull abilities that take ages to unlock. Seasoned RPG players might well be able able to look past those flaws in favour of the interesting, well written stories about political manoeuvres and oppression that make up the bulk of the quests in this pretty dark, deep world.

    GreedFall is the very definition of a decent action RPG. It does nothing drastically wrong but doesn't blow you away either. What it does manage is to be an enjoyable experience which is sometimes all you need.

    One of the most interesting video game settings of the year and while the game has numerous issues the strong combat and inventive quest design make it well worth persevering with.

    A game typical of its developer, Spiders. Huge ambitions, attractive environments, lots of great ideas… but it’s all put together in exactly the wrong way. Give GreedFall a chance only if you’re willing to put up with an average game.

    Not bad for a double a game!!! For a small studio it's a really good game, it kinda reminds me of assassins creed and the witcher

This is a true action RPG, and an experience AAA developers have been dropping the ball on for years. It's not perfect but the good greatly outweighs the few issues. Expand

    Me parece un juego soberbio tanto en ambientación como diversión!
    Gran RPG con un bajo coste pero no menos de estar entre los grandes

Facial animations are not great and poorly aligned with dialog. Movement when trying to open a chest can be a little janky. I've seen a couple of minor graphics glitches. I once saw some dialog that spoiled something I hadn't actually encountered. The UI, and fast travel in particular is a pain (I hate that they give me a list of fast travel locations instead of showing me a map with them, but love that they indicate which fast travel location is closest to my current quest destination).

    That said, I'm also enjoying it quite a bit. The quest lines are telling interesting stories and that your official job is diplomat gives you an opening to some interesting quest ideas. I chuckled a bit when, after setting up a meeting between two other factions, I was politely told to leave while they actually negotiated because I wasn't part of either faction. The voice acting is pretty good and I like that every group is at least a little shady. The skill tree is fun, if nonsensical (it is really that much harder to fire a rifle than a pistol? - I'm pretty sure historically, rifles came first). The Attribute and Talent advancement always have me debating, Talents, in particular, are a difficult decision because all are so useful.

    I would not recommend this for anyone expecting a post-Witcher 3 level of graphics, but if you're willing to look past its flaws, this is a very fun game.

    I bought this almost on a whim and did not expect to finish it. However, it has really pulled me in and I fully expect to complete the game.
