    I thought IGN Spain would be butthurt about the game not having Spanish language, but apparently that's not the case. They don't even mention it, which is quite surprising with Spaniards.

    Too much difficulty at the beginning and too little once you have a decent party (could they be playing at insane difficulty as this was left as the standard difficulty by mistake?); not very interesting party management and too few abilities to choose from, "halfway through you already have the ones you wany maximized, and then the rest you choose almost at random"; almost impossible to run out of resources as it happened in Conquistador; and quite a bit of bugs.

    All of this according to them of course, I've not played enough to form an opinion.

    Reviewer got hit with a lot of bugs (or read about them and felt obligated to pretend he did....)
    Liked and considered the setting well implemented but didn't like when they drop it on occasion (must say I agree there's a few times where it's jarring, more so than AoD which got similar complaints)
    Seemed to like the combat/character building.
    Didn't mention many specifics about the mid-late game.

    "Tactical options galore--and challenging encounters will ensure they're put to work"

    Seriously?

    I think if you run an all Unarmed Party, the encounters would be extremelyl difficult

    A lot of things I like about this game. One thing is the how the dialog branches giving options that convey meaningful points of view for instance if you want to be barbaric you have the reply option or if you're diplomatic that also exists. Oddly, the dialog isn't murky or muddled, it really moves the plot along. Camping in most games is boring, but here if you don't eat you loose stats, which I find interesting. For the me the good outweighs the bad by a huge margin, the bad is so minor I really don't notice.

    Yep. One of the things i like the most about this game is that you dont have to read the walls of text and yet you still get all the information you need. Damn that feels good after "playing" numanuma. When you meet and talk to someone for the first time you just need to read a short (very short) description. A nicely made portrait of this character, some traits like (aggressive, greedy, peaceful) and little bit of VO tell you more then enough about the person you are talking to. Fargo and co should really check it out before they start making another "spiritual predecessor".
