    Review by Ironside
    ----------------------



    Positive features:

    - Dialogs instead of typing
    - Good terrain
    - Attracts the player to play the game quite well
    - The environment behaves well (conversations, walking, ...)

    Negative features:

    - The map size is really big (not that it matters for single player, but still)
    - It would be good if you could skip the cinematics
    - The dialogs should be a little faster
    - Some things are probably not intended to run more times, for example I got the first quest message 2 times

    Additional Information / Conclusion:

    I definitely see something big in this project, however there are some things that could be better. Good luck.

    Ill give this terrain a 70/5, its pretty good, but gold was rather useless, I never had to go back to town as the guardsmen, gonna try the vampire now lol.

    Some display errors with the tooltips, nothing that grave, but could use a bit more polish (the skills i mean)

    Review:

    Gameplay:

    There are 2 classes, not a lot, one of them is even disabled right now, but the playable one, Mystic, is a lot of fun. (pretty perverted)
    The hero has 3 custom spells, very flashy and somewhat creative, with amazing special effects and one default spell, but that one is still useful.
    There are also enemy encounters, meaning they all of a sudden come out of the ground, like zombies and also skeletons with some voice acting actually (although copied from another game).
    The quest system is also neat, you don't have to watch a whole cutscene just to get a simple quest.
    The keybinding is also nice, the spells hotkeys' are QWER.
    The amount of items sold by merchants is also astoundings and there are also attachment models!

    Terrain:

    The terrain and atmosphere are just amazing, you've used a lot of custom models, the environment looks very realistic, there are ambience noises, weather effects, a lot of movement in the player's surrounding, mages casting spells, people burning corpses, ...

    Other:

    There's voice acting (sort of, from other games though), a custom cursor, a custom font, and a custom soundtrack. However a custom UI would have been nice, like the one used in the Diablo 3 Warcraft map. (it's open source)
    Also how about removing the exclamation mark above a quest giver's head when you've received his quest(s)?

    Overall:

    It's almost perfect, needs some polishing here and there, but overall a very enjoyable and nice looking RPG.

    Really nice terrain and an atmospheric weather system. Items and spells/effects are also well made. :thumbs_up:
    Quest are nothing special but ok. What is missing most at the moment is some kind of backpack to put in not needed loot, so you can sell it at the village.
    The 3rd person camera really sucks. The camera doesn't have a height adjustment, goes into the ground and is to close to the hero. Also when pressing up and left/right at the same time, the hero should move diagonal and not stand still and turn. This way you can just move in one direction without stopping to turn. :thumbs_down:
    If you want, I can give you a camera system I made, that solves these problems. Just PM me.
    In general a nice map with room for improvements (and more conent :wink:).
    I give you a 4/5 for now and +rep. Good luck with the map. :)

    It's sad how incredible maps and projects like this one are so severely underrated ... *sigh*

    Very well done and entertaining. Perhaps the only suggestion I have would be to have the 3rd person over-the-shoulder camera be a little farther away and up, if that makes any sense. I love it but it restricts vision too much as it is.

    5/5

    Tested,and it sure works wonders!!
    Well,the graphics were detailed right down to the end.
    Besides that,it was immersive and easy to play as well.....
    The only downside:too short....
    Anyway,I hope to see the next version of it.
    Good LUCK!
