    I think GreedFall may be the sleeper hit of the year. It’s an RPG that captures the best parts of BioWare’s works while adding in their own gameplay elements and a unique setting. The side stories are given just as much importance as the main quests. The world is large despite not being one large open world experience. Combat is the perfect blend of real time action and turn based decision making. After playing Bound by Flame earlier this year I had little expectation for GreedFall. I am happy I was wrong to doubt Spiders, because it is one of my favorite games of the year.

    GreedFall is the game BioWare fans have been waiting for. Spiders manage to bring us a complex story, deep characters and confronted factions that show real political and religious problems. Despite its technical issues, GreedFall is what fans of RPG have been waiting for.

    Having spent nearly 30 hours in Greedfall, I’m glad to have experienced it. The narrative is deep, rich of lore, complex and has many twists and turns; it’s just a shame it feels a little too long by the end with some superficial padding of forced side quests. If you’re a fan of Dragon Age or Witcher 3 and have been craving a new RPG to sink some hours into with some depth, Greedfall should be at the top of your list. It’s a shame that it released in the busiest holiday window and will be overlooked by all the other AAA games out there, but those who manage find it amongst the crowd and give it a chance should be more than pleasantly surprised.

    Greedfall delivers an exceptional and well told story that grabs you and pulls you into its fascinating and beautiful world filled with intrigue and conflict.

    GreedFall is a valid, old school RPG with great mood and environments. With a satisfying story and setting, it just lacks in the technical department and for a not too impressive and a bit chaotic combat system. Lovers of old, BioWare-style RPGs should definitely give it a chance, though.

    GreedFall is a highly recommended title for all those who are fans of RPG titles and enjoy a remarkable artistic section, managing to create a world of dark fantasy set in the era of imperialism.

    Greedfall has some good ideas and nice writing. The player is often stimulated in a good way. But it totally falls apart in the very last third of the game, highlighting the flaws we agreed not to see until then.

I highly recommend it to anyone who liked the original Dragon Age. Expand

    I love BioWare, mass effect and dragon age are the loves of my life. So I was really happy to read the first reviews of Greedfall by SpiderI love BioWare, mass effect and dragon age are the loves of my life. So I was really happy to read the first reviews of Greedfall by Spider Studio. I read it felts more like a Bioware game than the last two Bioware games- and they were right!

    I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. The world-building, graphics, and plot were great. The combat was amazing, especially the ability to use 12 short cuts, and that you can have a gun AND magic!! The quests are not the standard fetch quests and there are many options for your character to make choices that affect the game and outcome. The choices you made and dialogue you pick also affect how the different factions and companions view you.

    The map system within cities left a little to be desired- it is really hard to get around and I got lost a lot. Some cut scenes had a tendency toward the uncanny valley and sometimes during quests it was hard to figure out what to do next.

    There are romance options in this game and they were decent. Not a ton of cut scenes between De Saret and your lover of choice, but still a good start. Not a lot of cut scenes with you and your companions either. Also, the companions are not bad, some are very interesting, but no one that inspires loyalty like a Bioware character. However, I feel that with some tweaking this studio could provide that.

    I finished the game in about 50 hours and still missed some items and will be replaying. This game feels like Dragon Wage Origins with better graphics. There's inventory management (you pick up a lot of junk) crafting, potion making and trap making. Be warned- you will get quests early on that if you havent leveled up right you will have to come back to later. This was annoying, but you can reset all your talents and attributes with a memory crystal if you need to. I am hopeful Spider will release some DLC's because this has easily made its rotation into the games I play. Highly recommend.

    Although Greed fall is a little rough around the edges I can't deny that the game has a certain about of charm that keeps pulling me towards it

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. GreedFall feels like a good first effort, or as if a sequel would be better. The story is top notch, but the character animations, random bugs, completely random invisible walls, horrid facial animations, linear exploration and "meh" combat, make for a bland experience with occasional bouts of amazing story-telling, (not to mention the copy/paste EVERYTHING, jesus at least have the professionalism to not make 20% of an entire outposts npc population the exact SAME CHARACTER). Once all the bugs and weirdness is patched out, this may be worth a go, but as of now? No. Hard Pass. Come back for GreedFall 2 instead. Expand
