    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.

    Greedfall is pure role-playing. With some of the best quest design and storytelling this side of The Witcher.

    Finally Spiders show their great quality with Greedfall. A remarkable Action-RPG full of content, which will give hours of fun to the genre. With an even bigger budget, it could have aimed higher.

    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 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 held back by performance issues and a tendency to fill its space with tedious padding, but it’s saved by fun combat and an intriguing story.

    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.

Characters are interesting, combat is fun and customization has depth. My only real issue has been the lipsyncing, which really isn't that bad and the voice acting is pretty good. I highly recommend it to anyone who liked the original Dragon Age. Expand

    GreedFall is Spiders' best game by some distance, and it's impressive how far the developer has come in just a few short years. ItGreedFall is Spiders' best game by some distance, and it's impressive how far the developer has come in just a few short years. It successfully scratches that BioWare itch with an intriguing world, like-able characters, and rock solid gameplay. However, aside from its unique setting, nothing about GreedFall truly stands out. Its combat is good but not great, its role-playing is largely fine but ultimately stunted, and its writing is competent but sometimes boring. GreedFall is right on the cusp of being something special. RPG fans will find a lot to like, but don't go in expecting the genre's next masterpiece. I did have some good fun with Greedfall and some of it's pretty on the eyes scenery. The combat felt haphazard and with the few proper patches this could be an amazing game. It's unique at times very fun but something was just a-miss on a few of the smaller details. I look forward to a potential patch or maybe some DLC. After this isn't a bad game but a few small details could have made this a real shining star on the Xbox One. Expand

    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
